From New York Times bestselling author Nicole Jordan comes this Romeo and Juliet-like story-the scorching second book in her wickedly sexy Legendary Lovers regency romance series, following Princess Charming.
When Lord Jack Wilde’s cousin tries to match him with Lady Sophie Fortin, he isn’t too thrilled by the prospect since Sophie’s family has long feuded with the Wildes. Nevertheless he attends a masquerade ball in disguise and when he meets Sophie, he’s drawn to her. The attraction is mutual-until she learns who he is. Angry that Jack has tricked her into lowering her guard under false pretenses, Sophie declares she doesn’t ever want to see him again. But then Jack shows up in unexpected places, driving her crazy with his seductive advances. She doesn’t want her parents finding out that she even knows him, let alone succumbed to his passionate kisses. If her father discovers Jack courting her, blood could be shed. Yet, Sophie still wants him and realizes that in order for the star-crossed lovers to be together, they must try to somehow settle the bitter feud between their families once and for all
This was the first book that I have read by Nicole Jordan and I did like it. I think for me some of the Romeo and Juliet stuff was a little bit to much, maybe even unbelievable which to me made the story drag in parts which is why the rating I have chosen for this one.
However the writing itself is solid and enjoyable it was not a bad book to read and if you like the genre or are already a fan of the author your going to enjoy this book. Lord Jack is your typical hero in a romance novel, he does not want to Marry he is a bit of a rake and a handsome devil. But hey that is what makes you adore him, and he does find himself attracted to Lady Sophie whether he wants to be or not. Over all not the greatest book I have ever read but it was a fun read and one I do not regret picking up. Thank you Net Galley for the chance to read this one.
