A silly, poorly written story with a totally improbable ending. If it was intended as satire it isn't literate enough.

Nicole Jordan has never failed to deliver and this time was no different. I have loved her new book PRINCESS CHARMING, and what an ingenious way of retelling our childhood favorites with a lot of spice. Maura was a delightful "cinderella" and all of the other characters was well developed giving a wonderful idea of what is to come. Can't wait to read about "romeo" Jack. Kuddos Nicole!

I usually start reading a book and have trouble putting it down until I am done. I have read Nicole Jordan before and enjoyed her writing. This book was not bad and I did finish it, but didn't have any trouble putting it down. It was just ok for me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

PRINCESS CHARMING by Nicole Jordan is an exciting new Regency historical romance. Book 1 in the "Legendary Lovers" series. Ashton Wilde, Marquis of Beaufort, the eldest Wilde cousin and is looking for true love by imitating history's legendary lover's,starting with Prince Charming. However, we have a Princess charming instead of the other way around. Enter, Maura Collyer,who isn't looking for a Prince or a husband at all. What follows is witty banter, a matchmaker,a fairy Godmother,passion,romance,danger,and true love. When Ash decides to help Maura regain her beloved stallion,he awakens a long forgotten feeling,starts a seduction that only could be a true fairy tale. A fast paced, adventure filled with passion,and danger,if they get caught with Maura's beloved stallion they both could hang. Wonderful new series. I can hardly wait for the next installment, the Wilde cousins will prove to be a match for love. Ms. Jordan is one of my favorite historical romance authors and I have many,"Princess Charming" was no exception, I enjoyed it tremendously. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Net Galley. Details can be found at the author's website, Ballantine,an imprint of Random House Publishing and My Book Addiction and More.

Maura became independent with the passing of her father. Using her champion race horse to start a stud farm. Becoming a woman way ahead of her time.
Ashton, became a Marquis. After the unexpected death of his parents and his aunt and uncle in a boating accident.
Maura goes to London, to try get her horse Emperor back, after her step mother decided to sell him with out Maura's permission. Ashton comes to Maura's aid when she was to confront Lord Deering about buying Emperor back.
Ashton throws himself into helping Maura get her horse back.
In the process Maura and Ashton fall in love, both afraid are that the other has no feelings for the other. Maura also has a hard time trusting Ashton, and sharing with him. Maura tries to keep all of her problems to herself. Ashton and his family try to get Maura realize that she isn't alone and that there are people wanting to help in care for her.
I liked how Maura is best friends with Ashton's sister and cousin.
The plot was of Princess Charming is fast paced and keeps you on your toes threw out the whole book. The relationships between the character were complex and interesting. Also all the interactions between the character were well written. I could feel the emotions coming of the page with some of the interactions between the characters. I really enjoyed how Maura and Ashton relationship progressed from a simple friendship to a strong and burning passion. Princess Charming was a really great read it is now one of my all time favorites.
I give Princess Charming five cocktails! Reviewed for Cocktails and Books.

With an entire shelf on my bookcase dedicated to Nicole Jordan's backlist, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Princess Charming, the first book in her new Legendary Lovers series. Loosely based on the timeless classic, Cinderella, we have the dashing hero Ashton Wilde, Marquis of Beaufort, Maura Collyer as the damsel in distress wronged by her wicked stepmother and the two (not so wicked) step-sisters.
Ash's sister, Katherine with the help of Uncle Cornelius, develop a theory that each member of the Wilde clan will have their own fairytale. When the situation arises with Maura's stallion being sold to a dastardly villain by her step-mother, Katherine presents the idea to Ash of being Maura's "prince charming". While both Ash and Maura scoff at the idea of the fairytale romance they are drawn to each other and sparks start to fly.
Maura was a great heroine who was strong and independent but also showed a vulnerable side as well. Ash was a sweet, romantic kind of take charge guy but sensitive and vulnerable too, afraid of getting hurt after the loss of his parents. The playful banter between Maura and Ash and actually, between the entire Wilde family was fun and enjoyable.
Ms. Jordan has done it again by creating an enjoyable, action-packed story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I am eagerly looking forward to reading more about the Wilde family.

This book may have well been written about a bunch of bratty 14 year olds. The plotline resembled playground bullying and could have been lifted right out of junior high drama. The dialogue also resembled junior high style speech. There are much better Cinderella stories out there written with genuine emotional maturity.Was this review helpful?

I've read almost all of Nicole Jordan's books and this one was okay. It was not at all her usual style. It almost seemed like someone else wrote it. The story didn't have the usual flow and the characters didn't have depth the way I normally expect from this author. Will still read anything she writes though!Was this review helpful?

I liked this book alot!! I would only change one thing and that was the lack of sexual chemsitry between the two main characters. I love her books where the lead male is more of a Alpha male, then "ummm, okay I will help her?!" Nicole Jordon is my all time favorite author and has been for years can't wait for the next in line to be publishedWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Loved the newest series of books by Nicole Jordan. I loved the Paradise series, but I believe this is going to top all of her others. I love how she ties her characters together with old ones showing up so you hear from them again. I can't wait for the next book! Love her booksWas this review helpful?

I am a longtime romance reader and Nicole Jordan is one of my favorites. I loved her Courtship Wars series and they are all on my keeper shelf. Her new book will be joining them. I loved the story of Ashton and Maura. It drew me in from the very beginning. The Regency setting, lush backgrounds and engaging characters, fill it out to make it a fun and engaging read. I can't wait to read the rest of the series, but first I think I may reread Princess Charming a few more times.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
