    Pretty Good

    I enjoyed this book and liked the characters. My only complaint is that it made me laugh in parts that weren't supposed to be funny. For instance, when Raven was given a powerful aphrodisiac and Kell must conquer his dislike of her and stimulate her all night long to ease her pain. Or when Raven finds out after marrying the dark and frightening Kell that he rescues poor and abused children from the street and runs an orphans' home. Other than that it was a pretty good book.

    W-O-W!

    Bordering on erotica, this novel proves Rhett Butler right, real ladies do think about sex, and if the heroine of this book, Raven Kendrick is an accurrate example, quite a lot. Raven's dreams of marriage to a proper, titled gentleman, thus erasing her lifelong shame of being the result of her mother's illicit passion, are shattered when she is kidnapped on her wedding day by a spurned suitor. Sean Lancaster intends to take his revenge upon her for his impressed service and the scorn she once showed him. However, before this can happen, his older brother, Kell steps in, rescuing the now socially ruined Raven from his vile attentions. Yet, she is now facing the future as a potential pariah, unless she finds a groom quickly, and Kell is the only choice. For years, Raven has visited a fantasy lover in her imagination, created from dreams invoked by reading one of her mother's tawdry books that gave lessons on sex. Faced with a real man, she soon finds her pirate to be fading and to be replaced by none other than her husband, a virile, yet compassionate man who spends his life rescuing others. Though neither wants it, they find themselves drawn to one another, first in sheer passion, then in love. Yet, Sean still lurks out there, his rage still seething. The self destructive hot head still desires revenge, and now it is focused not only upon Raven, but upon her husband as well. **** For sheer passion, you will find few novels with more spice than this one, unless you venture into the X rated category. Raven is a spunky heroine, though you might become impatient with her for knowing how shallow the society she seeks to belong in truly is, yet still wanting to be a part of it. However, Kell is all man, masculine, and golden hearted. He is just the type you dream of finding. Readers should be warned that there is some graphic descritive language involving child molestation that is rather hard to take. **** REVIEWER: Amanda Killgore.

    exciting historical romance

    In 1813, Raven Kendrick plans to marry the much older ¿safe¿ Duke of Halford to honor a pledge she made to her mother at the latter¿s deathbed. Raven vowed to marry nobility so after her mother died she left Montserrat Island in the Caribbean to live with her great aunt and grandfather. <P>On the way to the altar, Sean Lassiter abducts Raven, vowing vengeance for rejecting his courtship. Sean takes Raven to his brother¿s successful gaming parlor. The sibling Kell keeps Sean from raping Raven, but believes she is an evil temptress until he learns she is a virgin when he almost beds the doped woman. Kell takes Raven home and he proposes to protect her reputation. She surprises him with the story she tells her relatives but accepts Kell¿s offer. As they become better acquainted their passion turns into love, but external interference and their own mistrusts and doubts leave their relationship heading to the rocks. <P>ECSTASY is an exciting historical romance starring two powerful lead characters though Kell¿s disbelief of his beloved seems out of place for someone of his intelligence. The story line is loaded with action and the secondary cast augments the tale with a flavoring of the era and by meddling in the lead couple¿s relationship. Nicole Jordan provides a wonderful Regency tale that sub-genre fans will enjoy. <P>Harriet Klausner

    DECEIVED

    THERE ARE FEW WRITERS THAT CAN CONVEY PASSION AS MS. JORDAN CAN. HOWEVER--ECTASY 2002-DESIRE 2001-PASSION 2000-SEDUCTION 2000 AND PRINCE OF PLEASURE 2004 ARE 'AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER' WITHIN A FEW MONTHS OF EACH OTHER. THESE ARE REISSUES AND SHOULD STATE SO. THERE ARE TOO MANY READERS WILLING TO BUY ANY BOOK BY THEIR FAVORITE AUTHOR AND MAY NOT REMEMBER THE BOOK HAS ALREADY BEEN READ. I KEEP A RECORD OF THOSE READ BACK FROM 5 YEARS SO I DON'T REPEAT AND STILL EVERY NOW AND THEN ONE CREEPS BY.
