Marcus Pierce, the new Earl of Danvers, is well aware that finding the Loring sisters' spouses isn't going to be an easy task. He hasn't even met them yet and already he's butting heads with the eldest, Arabella. She insists that he release them from his guardianship and allow them to take care of themselves - like they've done for years. He has no intention of honoring her request, after all they are his responsibility and he does not shirk his duties.
Marcus isn't sure where he'll find suitable spouses for Arabella, Roslyn and Lillian. It would be very helpful if his friends and fellow escapees from the Marriage Mart, Andrew and Drew would be agreeable to consider marriage. He's having no luck convincing them to change their minds and certainly isn't about to get leg shackled himself. However, an unexpected appearance in his home by none other than the obstinate Arabella has him reconsidering his position. No woman has ever excited him the way Arabella does but she's determined not to marry and no amount of reasoning on Marcus's part is going to convince her otherwise.
Marcus is determined to persuade her to his way of thinking and so he issues a challenge.Read more ›
I'll admit that this novel isn't quite as passionate as other books by Nicole Jordan which is why i gave it 4 stars instead of 5
Arabella is not the most beautiful of three sisters but the oldest. She has taken on full responsibility for her younger sisters since her father's death and her mother fled to France with her lover;leaving the girls waist deep in scandal, cast aside by society and living off the charity of a step uncle that despises them.
Lord Marcus Danvers comes into the story when the girls' uncle dies leaving Marcus as their guardian. Independent and headstrong all three girls reject the idea of having a guardian and most certainly defy the idea of being married off to 'eligible suitors' once Marcus provides them each a dowery.
The story unfolds as Marcus and Arabella challenge each other in more than one way.
If I'm being honest I must admit to getting a little bored with some repetitive language about 3 days into Marcus' 'wooing' of Arabella but other than that I loved the story, the characters, the time period, etc..
Arabella has a little Elizabeth Bennet (Pride and Prejudice) written into her.
For me this was a fun story with great main characters and interesting supportive characters.
Now-I'm off to find a tootsie roll pop...happy reading!
Marcus Pierce does not want to be responsible for the guardianship that he inherited with his title. In order to get rid fo the responsibility as quickly as possible, Marcus vows that he will have them married off immediately. But when his oldest ward comes to visit him, Marcus finds himself startled by her beauty, her wit, her fiery temper, and the fact that she ignites a fire in him that he's never felt before. Before he knows what he's doing, Marcus offers Arabella a startling proposition--if she will let him court her with the intention of marriage for two weeks and she is unable to resist his charms, he will grant the Loring sisters their independence. Arabella is convinced that she won't be susceptible to Marcus's seduction, but he's equally determined to win her heart.
To Pleasure a Lady is the first in Nicole Jordan's Courtship Wars series (the next two books are To Bed a Beauty (Courtship Wars, Book 2) and To Seduce a Bride (Courtship Wars, Book 3)). It's also the first book I've read by Nicole Jordan. I have to say that this book ebbed and flowed for me.Read more ›
