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. 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. But gorgeously defiant Arabella sparks frustration—and something deeply erotic—in Marcus. 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….

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.
