Nicole Jordan

I love reading Nicole Jordan’s historical romance books. Her Courtship Wars series is a fairly recent series that was so well received, Ballantine wants her to continue the Courtship Wars series for at least a while longer with maybe 3 more books added to the series. I can’t wait for them to come out. Now it comes to the last and youngest Loring sister and I have to say she is the most wildest and independent of them all, but also the most stubborn one in letting herself falling in love. The heroine Lilian Loring believes that love is too risky to let herself feel and marriage is a hell that she will never let herself be trapped in. The hero Heath Griffin, the Marquess of Claybourne is Marcus and Drew’s best friend and we have met him in the first book and see him sometimes in the second book. I thought as I was reading this novel that Heath and Lilian make such a wonderful couple and I could see them happily in love with one another.
Lilian is bent on never falling in love or getting married but Heath is going to do his best to change her mind because he may not know he’s in love with her in the beginning but he wants her and only marriage will do. Their courtship is at times dangerous but they are exciting adventures that make Lilian and Heath’s lives a bit exciting and help them towards finally understand their love for one another. I was a bit sad when I finally got to the ending of this book but I know in time Nicole Jordan will have finish writing about the wonderful secondary characters that we have read in all three Courtship Wars novels into a novel of their own for our enjoyment. I love her Courtship Wars series and recommend it to everyone who loves romance novels especially historical romances. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
TO SEDUCE A BRIDE $ 6.99 (Book 3)(409 Pages)

Seduction has never been more enticing than in this third novel of Nicole Jordan’s enthralling trilogy, The Courtship Wars.

Spirited beauty Lilian Loring believes that love is too risky a venture and that marriage is best avoided entirely—even if her unwanted suitor comes as deliciously packaged as Heath Griffin, the Marquess of Claybourne. The charismatic rogue has never met a woman who can discourage his advances, and after a show of resolve Lily too melts under Heath’s sensuous kisses. Perhaps that is why she decides to hide out in the last place gentleman would look for a lady: a house of scandalous repute.
In bold pursuit, Heath discovers his enchanting spitfire cheerfully instructing the demimonde in the art of deportment. Now the thrill of the chase is exceeded only by his powerful need to possess Lily as his bride. For Heath, victory in their game of passion means nothing less than winning Lily’s elusive heart….
I love reading Nicole Jordan’s historical romance books. Her Courtship Wars series is a fairly recent series that was so well received, Ballantine wants her to continue the Courtship Wars series for at least a while longer with maybe 3 more books added to the series. I can’t wait for them to come out. Well after I finished reading the first book I knew that the second book would be just as good and so I went into it already loving it. I wasn’t disappointed because the heroine is the middle Loring sister and her name is Rosling the bookish and beautiful young lady that is hoping to find a love match with a good man, which she has already picked out. In comes the hero the dashing Duke of Arden, Drew Monerief who we met in the first novel as one of Marcus Pierce’s best friends.
Rosling and Drew are very interesting charcters and a very interesting couple because Rosling believes in love and marrying only for love, while Drew doesn’t believe love exists and that marrying is only for convinence and lust. Rosling doesn’t think Drew is the man for her and only wants him to help her to get her neighbor to fall in love with her and get him to marry her. It was this scheme to learn how a mistress makes her lover fall in love with her that Drew and Rosling fell in love with one another. They have a fun yet at times dangerous courtship that I really thought was romantic because I could see the characters develop throughout the novel and learn to love. I love her Courtship Wars series and recommend it to everyone who loves romance novels especially historical romances. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
TO BED A BEAUTY $ 6.99 (Book 2)(442 Pages)

Nicole Jordan takes the delights of the Regency mating game to breathless new heights in this daring second novel of the superb new trilogy, The Courtship Wars.

Clever and charming Roslyn Loring, the middle child of three beautiful, independent sisters, knows that true happiness lies in a marriage of the heart—and she has hers set on a love-match with a neighboring earl. Yet her sharp mind has observed an undeniable truth: Gentlemen lavish passion on their mistresses, not their wives. Roslyn realizes that to win her future husband’s devotion, she must learn the secrets of kindling a gentleman’s ardor. Fortunately, she finds a willing tutor in Drew Monerief, the Duke of Arden, a notorious rake whispered to be London’s most magnificent lover. If his searing kisses are any indication, the duke is the ideal man to teach Roslyn how to be the perfect mistress.
Drew begins schooling Roslyn while coolly guarding his heart. But as best-laid plans are thwarted by unexpected events—including a night of unforgettable passion—Roslyn and her wickedly arousing tutor discover how easily lessons in pleasure can become lessons in love….

Her Courtship Wars series is a fairly recent series that was so well received, Ballantine wants her to continue the Courtship Wars series for at least a while longer with maybe 3 more books added to the series. I can’t wait for them to come out. But lets get back to the review of her first Courtship Wars novel that I really enjoyed reading. The heroine Arabella Loring is the oldest sister and her independent younger sisters don’t want or need the hero Marcus Pierce’s protection and guardianship. The hero Marcus Pierce has found himself guardian of 3 independent sisters who don’t want him to give them dowries or arrange their marriages to men they don’t know. When Marcus and Arabella first there is instant attraction between them that could set a forest on fire and it is the beginning of their love match relationship and the end to their bachelorhood and spinsterhood.
Arabella is very stubborn and doesn’t want to get close to her guardian Marcus because she doesn’t want to fall in love with another nobleman who can break her heart. Marcus wants Arabella but knows that the only way he can have her is to marry her but convincing Arabella to marry him is going to be very hard because she wants independence from his guardianship for both her and her sisters. So they make a bet with one another where if Arabella doesn’t soften up and doesn’t want to marry Marcus at the end of two weeks she and her sisters win their independence but if Marcus can woo her at the end of two weeks she will consent to wed and bed him as his wife. This was one interesting courtship that had many downs but it also had many ups that made everything so much more interesting. I love her Courtship Wars series and recommend it to everyone who loves romance novels especially historical romances. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
TO PLEASURE A LADY $ 6.99 (Book 1)(394 Pages)

Nicole Jordan spins a delectable tale to wit and exquisite sensuality in this mesmerizing Regency romance, the captivating first in a dazzling new trilogy, The Courtship Wars.

Marcus Pierce, a strikingly handsome aristocrat with a wicked reputation, inherits guardianship of Arabella Loring and her two younger sisters—and immediately declares his intention to marry them off.

After matching both wits and swords with her, Marcus concludes that this beautiful and formidable woman must be his.

Having sworn off marriage and men, Arabella wishes to be left alone to run her finishing school for young ladies. To that end, she boldly accepts Marcus’s intimate challenge: If he can woo and win her within two weeks, she’ll take her place in his bed as his wife. However, if she can resist his considerable charms, the Loring sisters will be granted their independence. Thus an extraordinary game of seduction begins….
Nicole Jordan is one of my favorite authors and I stumbled upon her books one day when I was at Barnes & Noble strolling for some new books to buy. I found this book interesting when I read the description from the back cover and I thought that I would give this book a try and I wasn’t disappointed. I love Nicole Jordan’s historical romances and this one is a good one that I really enjoyed because it is set in one of my favorite places, the Scottish Highlands. I recommend this book to everyone and especially for those who love historical romances. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:

I love reading Nicole Jordan’s historical romance books. Her Paradise Series is one of her best that I loved and still love to read. For now there is only 4 books published in this series but Jordan wants to write a 5th but her publisher had asked her to postpone book 5 to write her new series The Courtship Wars. She’s hoping that as soon as she can she will write up book 5 for the Paradise Series to complete it. Here is the description of the books from the back covers and pictures:

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
