About the Book
Nicole Jordan takes the delights of the Regency mating game to breathless new heights in this daring second novel of a superb new trilogy, The Courtship Wars.
Clever and charming Roslyn Loring, the middle child of three beautiful, independent sisters, knows that true happiness lies in a marriage of the heart – and she has hers set on a love-match with a neighboring earl. Yet her sharp mind has observed an undeniable truth: Gentlemen lavish passion on their mistresses, not their wives. Roslyn realizes that to win her future husband’s devotion, she must learn the secrets of kindling a gentleman’s ardor. Fortunately, she finds a willing tutor in Drew Moncrief, the Duke of Arden, a notorious rake whispered to be London’s most magnificent lover. If his searing kisses are any indication, the duke is the ideal man to teach Roslyn how to be the perfect mistress.
Drew begins schooling Roslyn while coolly guarding his heart. But as best-laid plans are thwarted by unexpected events – including a night of unforgettable passion – Roslyn and her wickedly arousing tutor discover how easily lessons in pleasure can become lessons in love….
Praise for To Bed a Beauty
“The Courtship Wars continue with a lady learning the art of seduction. To Bed A Beauty is wild, sexy reading. I just love the characters; they play very well together and come alive on the page. This is the second story for the Loring sisters, and I’m looking forward to Lily’s story. I’m sure it will be just as good as the first two.”
– Fresh Fiction
“This is one incredibly gripping series. I loved the first and if possible, the second is better. Once again Ms. Jordan has given us two intriguing and multilayered characters, both with reasons not to want to fall in love with each other, but unable to help themselves. Their tempestuous and sensual relationship will keep you reading late into the night. Roslyn has a plan, but Arden is not her object, which makes him more determined to have her, which just starts the fun. This is definitely going on my keeper shelf.”

“The Courtship Wars continue to sizzle as Jordan singes the pages with her highly sensual love story [and] she turns another novel into a nonstop read.”
– Romantic Times BOOKreviews
“The second Courtship Wars skirmish is a delightful Regency romance. The story line is fast-paced from the moment that Roslyn makes her Faustian deal and never slows down as she begins to comprehend what the devilish details mean to her heart and soul.”
– Harriet Klausner, Affaire de Coeur reviewer
