This was my first book by Nicole Jordan and I have to admit I loved it. It was very well written and it followed what I feel is a normal romance novel outline, but it definitely had it's own uniqueness to it. I am about to start the second book and hope it is just as good.

Victorian times were very hard for women to be independent but our heroine succeeded. Very spicy & steamy parts.

New York Times best-selling author Nicole Jordan spins a delectable tale of wit and sensuality in this delicious 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 spirited Arabella Loring and her two younger sisters - and immediately declares his intention to marry them off. But enchantingly defiant Arabella sparks frustration - and something deeply erotic - in Marcus. After matching both wits and swords with her, the possessive nobleman concludes this beautiful and formidable foe 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....

Am I the only person who didn't like this book? I found it hard to read it is sooooo boring. I had to give up about 50 pages in.

I can't say it is poorly written, per se, but it is just so much regurgitated fiddle faddle with a heavy dose of not very interesting followed by a dash of who cares. The basic story premise is just annoying and there is just not enough introduction to either character to make anyone buy their love or lust at first sight.

There is so much better historical romance out there, why waste time on this?
