Nicole Jordan is a powerhouse when it comes to historical romances. In this story I was expecting another fabulous Regency romance, which I got. But I also got so much more. It starts by demonstrating how unusual, Lady Katherine Wilde is and how pivotal Brandon Deverill is in her life. After their deal is done, I was expecting to spend the journey in Town watching Katherine help transform the American into a proper member of the British Ton. And I did get that, but I got so much more from the story. I got emotions and scenery and a great introduction to the adventure that was about to take place. One minute we were on the solid shores of Britain and then we were travelling across the channel and searching for answers Katherine desperately needs. Suddenly this story took on another life, an entire twist that elevated the story and the connection between the hero and the heroine. I loved the connection between this couple and the support they get from so many of their friends and relatives. Each and every one were fascinating in their own rights. If you are a fan of this author, or this genre, I suggest you read this one as it kept me on the edge of my seat and left me smiling even days later.
The Story: Lady Katherine Wilde has been asked to help Brandon Deverill adjust to his new position in life, this should be easy for her except she once had strong feelings for the man she once made a fool of herself for so she agrees to help him if he will help her. When he agrees she wonders if she's just made the best or worst deal of her life.
Nicole Jordan’s irresistible Legendary Lovers series continues in this sizzling twist on My Fair Lady, as a bewitching beauty and a rakish sea captain trade favors . . . and tempt fate.
Lady Katherine Wilde believes she has crushed any lingering romantic feelings toward Brandon Deverill, who spurned her six years ago. And now that the rough-edged rogue needs polishing to claim his inheritance, she’s willing to strike a practical bargain: Kate will mold the brash privateer into an acceptable English nobleman if Deverill will safeguard her from brigands on a voyage to recover lost family treasure. However, the soul-melting kiss that seals their agreement just may reignite blazing passion.
Brandon’s fortitude was sorely tested when he turned Kate away from his bed all those years ago. Even a rake such as he wouldn’t seduce an innocent beauty before sailing into battle. But now that he’s inherited a title and must take a suitable bride, he sets his sights on Kate. Though he fiercely desires her, true love is a notion that baffles him—until their adventure turns perilous and Brandon realizes he’d gladly trade his life to save the woman who has captured his heart.
