Format: Paperback
This was the third book in the Courtship Wars series and to me this book was too scattered. There was too much going on to the point where there was no focus on the real story. The characters and their storyline were under-developed and the same content was brought out too many times until it was boring. We are told that Lillian Asher is a real hellion - I saw no sign of it.

A nice light read - no suspense or murders - no crying involved. Just a guardian and ward who take a 2 week wager that he can change her mind to marry him. I liked the characters in this book especially Fanny (the courtesan). And I liked all the sneaky ways Arabella comes up with to defeat the Earl's attempts to get her alone to woo her.

I absolutely love Nicole Jordan. If you are looking for a great romance author she is definately one to read. Once you read one you will have to read another.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anticipating the next in the series Feb. 2 2008
By Client Amazon - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Nicole Jordan's latest was very interesting, i couldn't put it down. From the story opens up you get sucked in and you instantly fall in love with characters. Arabella is fiercly independent and vows to never get married but Marcus is pesistent and eventually wears her down. I also loved the other two sisters and I can't wait until their stories are published (I would love to see Drew, Marcus' friend, taken down a notch and sincerely hope that Roslyn does it).
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

3.0 out of 5 stars Relatively Ordinary 3.5 March 6 2008
By RETSmile - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book wasn't much of a page turner for me. The writing wasn't bad. It just seemed there wasn't a whole lot to the story. I wasn't dying to pick the book back up each time I put it down. I liked the characters enough but I didn't feel emotionally attached to them or their outcome, and most of the story was just quite ordinary.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Loring Sister Trilogy April 6 2009
By Sally Alves - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Nicole Jordan has written a series of three historical romance books about the Loring Sisters entitled "The Courtship Wars". All are interesting reads, but one must read them in the correct order so that you are not putting the cart before the horse. There are two type of historical romance books. One type is lighter with just some historical research involved. The other is deeply researched, with detailed historic facts.

Nicole Jordan falls into the first category. Shannon Drake falls into the second category. With Shannon Drake you feel like you are living history. With Nicole Jordan, it is a lighter read with more romance than history. Both are good, but I prefer Shannon Drake because like watching the Showtime series "The Tudors", historic accuracy is a must for me and you can learn and experience true history from both "The Tudor's" and Shannon Drake's books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ugh Dec 6 2009
By Mary Victory - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is lacking pizzazz. I read Lisa Kleypas and Johanna Lindsey, but this book is not up to their standards. The language is old-style and stilted. Most romances today keep the language more simple to keep it appealing to the masses.

It was hard to like the hero. For most of the book he comes off as just a rich bastard, but by the time we start to like him most of the book has already come and gone.

I will be giving this to the used book store, as I only keep high-quality, witty and sparkling romances. This one is as dull as dirt.
3.0 out of 5 stars Just 'OK'...lacking in spark March 2 2008
By statengirl - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Marcus Pierce, Earl of Danvers, recently inherited his title along with guardianship of three beautiful penniless sisters who were the step-nieces of the prior Earl. Marcus is determined to find suitable husbands for the sisters, who are tainted by family scandal, and offers them generous dowries. But the ladies, all in their early twenties, have no interest in marriage, his guardianship, or his financial help. They operate a girls' academy whose income is sufficient for them to live on, and they want to be allowed to determine their own future.

The oldest sister, Arabella, is a spitfire who rails against Marcus' unwanted interference and wishes he would just go away. But Marcus finds the fiery Arabella irresistible and - surprising even himself - asks her to marry him. Arabella is undeniably attracted to Marcus, but she has been treated badly by the men in her life and is adamantly opposed to marrying. So Marcus makes a bargain with her: two weeks to win her over as his bride, or she and her sisters will be given their freedom. But two weeks living under the same roof are harder for Arabella than she imagined. Marcus tempts her more and more as the days pass, for she has never in her life been treated so well by a man...nor found one so physically desirable!

I thought this book was 'OK' but pretty bland. Although Marcus was appealing enough as a hero, the supporting cast fine, and the sisters' predicament interesting, this was not enough to carry the day. There was a lack of spark between the leads, the sex scenes were somewhat flat, the dialogue nothing special, and there were no dramatic highs or lows. I expected more humor and passion - more vitality - from a jousting couple living under the same roof, but I was disappointed. And as time went on, Arabella's obstinate behavior towards Marcus was not believable. She did not behave in a logical way towards the man she grew to love, with whom she was intimate, and who treated her and her entire family so well. I began to wonder why Marcus stuck it out with Arabella, because she was unreasonably difficult and did not appreciate her good fortune...although she did redeem herself at the end. This is the first book in the 'Courtship Wars' trilogy about the Loring sisters. I have read other books that I liked by this author, so I will give the series a chance and hope for more spark from the next couple.
