Editorial Reviews


"A wildly sexy romp... a passionate battle of the sexes to see if a stubborn man can get a reluctant woman to the altar. Nicole Jordan at her sizzling best!" -- New York Times bestselling author Mary Jo Putney

About the Author

Nicole Jordan is the nationally bestselling author of fifteen historical romances. She recently moved with her real-life hero to the Rocky Mountains of Utah, where she is at work on the next book of her scorching Notorious series–tales of dangerous rakes and bold adventurers during the Regency era.

More About the Author

"One of my all time favorite writers, Nicole Jordan delivers romance like no one else. Captivating, enticing, and irresistible, her books are always on my must buy list."--Sherrilyn Kenyon, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Nicole Jordan charms and captivates."--Jillian Hunter, New York Times bestselling author

New York Times bestselling author Nicole Jordan spins delightful tales that simmer with passion and sensuality. In her former life, Nicole grew up as an Army brat, moving frequently and attending high school in Germany. She later earned a civil engineering degree from Georgia Tech and spent eight years as a manufacturing manager making disposable diapers and toilet tissue! Currently Nicole lives in the Rocky Mountains of Utah with her real-life hero (her husband) and beloved kids (her horses).

With over two-dozen historical romances to her credit and five million books in print, set in numerous eras and locales, Nicole now enjoys chronicling the sparks that fly when Regency lovers play the matrimonial mating game.

One of her novels had the dubious honor of being humorously spotlighted by Jay Leno on "The Tonight Show." On a more serious note, Nicole's romances regularly appear on numerous bestseller lists, including The New York Times, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today, and have earned such honors as RITA finalist, RWA's Favorite Book of the Year, theRomantic Times Career Achievement Award for Historical Romance, and the Dorothy Parker Award of Excellence, presented by a group of over one hundred romance reviewers.

This book is simply ermm bad porn, sorry but it is.
Crystal, the librophiliac
Instead, he was depicted as a cardboard superhero, very one dimensional.

There's just too much about this book which is unsatisfactory.

Well after an exhaustive pursuit, Heath, Marquess of Clayborne, did capture his bride in the end, but I think he should have thrown her back!

The third book in the courtship war series pairs up the youngest Loring sister Lily (an anti-marriage minded & free spirited independent) with the charming & lovable Heath.

Although well written, I had several problems with this book. First the unbelievable; I can ALMOST accept the fact that Lily is so dead set against marriage due to her parents disastrous union. Obviously she has some deep seeded scars. So what would it take to convince her (or any woman skeptical for that matter) to wed? Seeing her two sisters find true love and happiness? CHECK. Have a handsome & rich man pursue you with honorable intentions? CHECK. Being extremely attracted to said man? CHECK. Have said man declare he loves you and finds you extremely attractive? CHECK. Be in love with or as close as you have been to said man? CHECK. Have said man declare that he would be faithful? CHECK. And, AND have said man declare that you wants you just the way you are? CHECK. Oh, and he has a title to boot! CHECK. Well, thats just not good enough for Lily! Because the crazy woman still says no.

I really loved Heath and admired him for his unrelenting pursuit and putting up with Lily. And its only because of him that I gave the book three stars. Lily, on the other hand, rather quickly becomes annoying and childish. Frankly, if I were Heath, I would have thrown in the towel long ago. If for anything, then for pride's sake. The man had to practically grovel. And while its nice to see an hard/aggressive hero grovel after some heinous treatment of the heroine, its depressing to see a NICE hero do the same for no apparent reason.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lily Loring is the youngest of the three Loring sisters, a trio whose family was on the brink of ruin before the girls saved themselves by opening a school to teach young women etiquette. Lily is the most decidedly tomboyish of the three sisters. She prefers riding horses and dreaming of world travel to tea parties and balls. She is also the sister who is the most against marriage. Lily remembers her parents' union as an unhappy one, and has vowed that she will not be shackled to any man. So when she is pursued by the best friend of her former guardian, Lily determinedly puts him off--even going so far as to take up residence with her good friend Fanny Irwin, a notorious Cyprian.

Heath Griffin, Marquess of Claybourne, is known as a rake and a seducer among the ladies of the ton. Heath's reputation as a lover of women precedes him, and he never thought that he would voluntarily sit down before he met Lily. He finds himself captivated by her independent nature, sharp tongue, and quick wit. Heath quickly decides he'd like to court Lily, only to learn that she's gone into hiding to avoid his attention. When he finds her, Heath decides to court the lady--willing or no--and make her his bride.

To Seduce a Bride is the third book in Nicole Jordan's Courtship Wars series, following To Pleasure a Lady (Courtship Wars, Book 1) and To Bed a Beauty (Courtship Wars, Book 2). It is also by far the worst book in the series. Lily is an exasperating heroine, and while I wouldn't go as far as labeling her too stupid to live, she was most definitely too exasperating to enjoy.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I looked forward to this book because I liked Heath from the first two books in the series. HOWEVER, Lilian was so irrational and harsh, it really ruined the story. While she may have had some legitimate concerns about not wanting to spend her life trapped in a marriage like her parents had, she came across as hateful, spiteful and downright surly, not bothering to ever really observe other relationships around her and how not all were abusive. She tended to push her ideals and beliefs into the faces of anyone who did not agree with her or let her have her way. Being angry with her sisters for finding happiness in their relationships was just plain childish. I just could not find anything about her to like and by the end of the book, actually hoped the engagement announcement between Heath and Lady Eleanor was really true. I don't understand why he would continue to pursue Lilian when all she did was spew so much bitterness. Even when she agreed to marry him, I just didn't feel it was real and felt she only agreed because she was once again wanting things to go her way. Unfortunately, the end of this trilogy was very disappointing and I only finished the book hoping, for the first time in my reading career, that the heroine would actually lose out to someone else via a surprise ending.

Heath Griffin, Marquess of Claybourne unaccountably takes a shine to Lilian, the third of the Loring sisters, and pursues her unflaggingly, despite her expressed aversion to marriage. It's a fairly standard storyline, and yet it drove me to distraction. There's just too much about this book which is unsatisfactory.

Firstly, if Ms. Jordan wants to write about the regency era, she should work within its restrictions. Here we have the sister-in-law of an earl who dashes about the countryside without any form of chaperone, and ends up living in a home for ladies of the night. Despite the fact that she's living at an earl's country seat, there is a marked absence of servants about, so Heath drives up in his curricle (without a tiger) and no grooms rush out to meet him; Lilian opens the door of the house herself. Marriage takes place on a ship - but the Marriage Act of 1753 prohibits marriage outside a church .... and so it goes on.

Additional irritations include Ms. Jordan's writing style. Which involves the use of clauses and phrases as sentences. Which leads to a rather breathless writing style. Which is irritating. And distracting. Also, her use of little excerpts from supposed letters to and from the heroine at the beginning of each chapter acts as spoilers. Does Ms. Jordan think her readers incapable of following her plot without such signposts?

I also agree with Misuzmama that Lily's repugnance to marriage, which is the whole premise of the book, was vastly overplayed. Jordan is so keen to ensure we get it, that she has Lily repeating her aversion in virtually every chapter.
