Jordan aptly maintains the tension between Aurora and Nicholas, while moving the plot smartly along with lively dialogue and interesting secondary characters.
Aurora has no obvious reason justifying her personal incertitudes and I found it difficult to approach both characters' inner motives.
Nice to meet Dare (Prince of Pleasure) though.

This story takes you on a passionate ride! The scenes Nicole Jordan presents are breathtaking, poetic, beautiful, erotic, intoxicating, bold, and passionate! The reader learns about Aurora and Nicholas as they learn about and discover each other as well as about themselves. Their fire is ignited from the very beginning of the book as Aurora and Nicholas gaze into one another's eyes, then fire becomes a roaring blaze when they kiss. When they realize passion and love are one in the same the fire is fueled uncontrollably! Both characters are strong individuals that have and can endure what life expects of and deals them. They learn about true courage, commitment, desire, passion, and love. Aurora has always been what society expects of a "proper" woman, but yearned to be passionately free. Nicholas is a man who chose to be free from society's expectations and lives life to the fullest. They are separated for a short period of time after their wedding night, and each discovers something different. After reading an erotic journal that Nicholas entrusts to her, Aurora believes she has learned all she needs to know about desire, passion and love but feels she should never open the heart to love because it will only be broken. And vows she will never allow that to happen to her. Nicholas discovers differently. During their time apart he realizes that his feelings for Aurora are stronger than any he has ever felt for a woman. He thinks at first those feelings are simply desire and lust. However, after spending time and getting to know her he realizes he wants Aurora's heart and now must convince her. The book is heart wrenching, suspenseful, surprising, & tearful from it's beginning to it's VERY passionate ending! This is book two in "The Notorious" series by Nicole Jordan. I highly recommend this book as well as book one in the series, "The Seduction"! Nicole Jordan is an amazingly talented author and you will not be disappointed.
Lady Aurora Demming meets Nicholas Sabine as he is about to go to the gallows. They make a pact, and share a glorious night of passion before he is to be hung. Aurora marries Nicholas to avoid marrying the man her father betrothed her to, and Nicholas marries Aurora so that she can become the guardian of his sister. You'll enjoy the story of Aurora and Nicholas, and their sensual journey to love. I did.
I blasted throught the first 100 pages. The book was shaping up well. The characters were likeable, and I cried a little when Nicholas "died", even though I knew he wasn't really dead. The plot was moving swiftly, and the focus appeared to be firmly on the relationship between hero and heroine. That's just as is should be. So far, so good.
But then the book started to fall apart. Aurora really began to get on my nerves. She was lamenting about how much she missed Nick and what might have been. Then Nick returns from the dead, and suddenly she doesn't want him anymore. Then she doesn't want a true marriage with him (kind of late for that, chickipoo!) unless it's based on love. So then he falls in love with her, and admits it to her, and again, she changes her mind and decides that she doesn't want him anymore. Then she realizes she's in love with him too, but casts him aside for someone else based on some pretty lame excuses about honor and duty. Then she wants him again. Arrgh! As my English mother would say, "changeable as the bloody wind!" I wanted to smack her and tell her to make up her stupid mind already--choose the man you love, the one who's name you already share! I'd started out liking her, but this pretty much killed any warm feelings I had about her.
And then there was the overabundance of sex in this book. I'm no prude, but it got to be ridiculous. There had to be at least a dozen sex scenes in this book, and most lasted for almost 10 pages. I was starting to roll my eyes and mutter, "Oh, for Pete's sake, are they doing it AGAIN?" It seemed like they were either fighting or screwing (mostly screwing) for the last 2/3 of the book. I was like, get on with the story. Where's the love, the romance in my romance novel? If I wanted erotic fiction (I don't), then that's what I'd buy. I started skimming whole sections of this book, and skipping scenes entirely because I was getting bored.
I was barely able to make myself finish this. If I can borrow another book by this author from the library, I might consider trying it. Otherwise, I'll save my money. Unless you're a die-hard fan of this author, I'd suggest you save your money and skip this book.
