Book Review: Princess Charming by Nicole Jordan

I couldn't let Valentine's Day pass without a review of an adorable romance novel!!

Nicole Jordan, author of nearly 30 bestselling romances, has launched a new series, Legendary Lovers, that promises to be filled with fun, romance, and adventure.  The first book in the series is "Princess Charming."

About The Book:

Thanks to the mischievous meddling of his matchmaking sister, Ashton Wilde meets a damsel in distress during the midnight magic of a lavish ball. But Maura Collyer isn’t looking for a prince—or an intimate pairing with any member of the scandalous noble Wilde family.

Intrigued by Maura’s beauty and daring, Ash is determined to aid in the rescue of her beloved stallion, gambled away by her wicked stepmother to an evil viscount. As their adventure becomes rife with peril and passion, Ash suspects he’s found his heart’s desire.

Even though her dearest friend may be her self-proclaimed fairy godmother, Maura is mortified at being pushed into a romance with a notorious rake such as Ash. Dashing and charming, he comes to Maura’s rescue just in time to help her steal back her precious horse. As they flee across the countryside, she can’t resist his sweet seduction. But is her prince playing a role in a fairy tale to test an improbable theory, or is the love awakening in her heart proof of her own happily ever after?

This novel was so much fun!  The cast of characters are lively, mischievous, and just an adorable bunch of folks to spend time with!  I love the closeness of the Wilde cousins, and love the idea that Kate has of pairing up her brothers and cousins with their true loves, using the stories of legendary lovers as guides.

This first story is the perfect "Cinderella" tale - Kate's best friend Maura has the evil stepmother, the stepsisters (not ugly this time, but sweet and affable) and the need to be rescued. And who better to rescue her than Kate's oldest brother Ashton. The adventures these two find themselves in are thrilling, and the eventual steps to falling in love are charming.

"Princess Charming" has plenty of twists and turns to keep the story moving, and sexy-hot encounters that will set hearts to beating faster! All the required elements of a great romance are here! I look for this series to be a very popular one, with each book being anticipated with glee!  I highly recommend it!
