In this latest edition to New York Times Bestselling author, Nicole Jordan’s Legendary Lovers series, which takes on one of my favorite romance themes—Beauty and the Beast—Lady Skye Wilde is determined to make a certain heroic beast her husband by employing a few SECRETS OF SEDUCTION!

Stunning sensuality and breathtaking romance mark this dazzling new Legendary Lovers tale from New York Times best-selling author Nicole Jordan, where an extraordinary beauty teaches a handsome, reclusive “beast” to love again.

The most charming Wilde cousin, Lady Skye has secretly loved the enigmatic Earl of Hawkhurst since girlhood, long before the tragedy that left him scarred both physically and emotionally. When Skye learns that the celebrated hero has returned to England from his self-imposed exile to make a cold marriage of convenience, she brazenly plants herself on his castle doorstep, determined to convince Hawk that she alone is his perfect mate and destiny.

An elite member of the Guardians of the Sword, Hawk has vowed never again to risk the pain of loving – but that’s before he deals with the most enchanting, annoyingly persistent seductress he’s ever encountered. One night of blazing passion leaves him impossibly torn. Will Hawk choose duty over love, or will he open his heart and let Skye’s healing light penetrate his darkness?

Unfortunately for the intrepid Skye, the Earl of Hawkhurt “Hawk” is not so easily seduced, but fortunately for us readers, her efforts to do so and his to resist make for one excellent example of storytelling at its finest.

Ms. Jordan has created the ideal mix of emotional substance, sexual chemistry, fun-teasing humor, compassion and a sense of destiny both within the story and in the characters themselves.

This is definitely one of those books that you will be unable to get away from until every word is read and the final page is turned.

VERY highly recommended!

PROS: Dynamic characters that keep your interest engaged throughout.

The reason behind HAWK’s beastly ways is heartbreaking and beautifully written and Ms. Jordan does a beautiful job of allowing his transition from grief to acceptance unfold at a realistic pace.

Skye is the perfect foil and mate for Hawk and I love that she doesn’t take any crap from him at all but gives as good as she gets, in their constant battle of words and will. A truly exceptionally thought out character!

CONS: Nope, can’t think of a single one.
