Marcus Pierce, the new Earl of Danvers, is well aware that finding the Loring sisters' spouses isn't going to be an easy task. He hasn't even met them yet and already he's butting heads with the eldest, Arabella. She insists that he release them from his guardianship and allow them to take care of themselves - like they've done for years. He has no intention of honoring her request, after all they are his responsibility and he does not shirk his duties.
Marcus isn't sure where he'll find suitable spouses for Arabella, Roslyn and Lillian. It would be very helpful if his friends and fellow escapees from the Marriage Mart, Andrew and Drew would be agreeable to consider marriage. He's having no luck convincing them to change their minds and certainly isn't about to get leg shackled himself. However, an unexpected appearance in his home by none other than the obstinate Arabella has him reconsidering his position. No woman has ever excited him the way Arabella does but she's determined not to marry and no amount of reasoning on Marcus's part is going to convince her otherwise.
Marcus is determined to persuade her to his way of thinking and so he issues a challenge. For two weeks he'll court Arabella and try to get her to accept his proposal. If he doesn't succeed then he'll release the sisters from his guardianship. Marcus isn't above using every technique in his sensual arsenal to show Arabella exactly what she'll be missing if she insists on remaining a spinster and he's very skilled in ways TO PLEASURE A LADY.
I just spent the whole day immersed in this story and don't regret a single second of the time I spent reading. TO PLEASURE A LADY beautifully showcases Nicole Jordan's talent as a writer. Readers will find themselves craving Marcus's seductive techniques, laughing at Arabella's attempts at evasion, and even gasping at the unladylike audacity of one of the students Arabella teaches. This book has so many enchanting characteristics that I simply didn't want to put it down and leave my `newfound friends.' TO PLEASURE A LADY is a book sure to be treasured by Regency romance lovers and a wonderful first book to what promises to be a delightful series.
Be sure to pick up copies of the next two books in the COURTSHIP WARS trilogy - TO BED A BEAUTY and TO SEDUCE A BRIDE which will consecutively available in March and April 2008.

Arabella is the eldest of the Loring sisters at 23. They are now looked down upon in society, for their parents' scandulous behaviours. To make ends meet, they own a school to teach young women how to be ladies. They are now resolute that because of their situations, nobody will marry them. Enter their new guardian, Marcus Pierce, the baron now turned Earl of Danvers. He's now inherited their responsibility from their cruel uncle, and wishes to find them husbands. But the Loring sisters aren't willing to make things easy for him. Arabella demands that he leaves them alone, but Danvers refuses. He considers marrying them off to his bachelor friends, Andrew 'Drew' Moncrief, the Duke of Arden and Heath, the Marquess of Claybourne, but neither want a wife. He doesn't want to get married either, although the more time he spends battling Arabella, the more he's attracted to her. So they make a deal. For the next two weeks, Danvers will court Arabella. If she doesn't fall for him, he will leave her and her sisters alone. But if she does, she must marry him.
Over the fortnight, Arabella tries to ignore her growing attraction to Danvers and tries to escape any private time with him. But soon, they get closer and give in to each other, despite her continual unwillingness to marry him. She's been hurt after the failure of her own parents arranged marriage, and worries history will repeat itself. But Danvers has fallen in love with Arabella, and has no intention of giving up. Can he persuade her to be with him?
Overall, the book was excellent. It was great seeing their story unfold, and watching them fall for each other, despite their own issues getting in the way. This is the first I've read by Nicole Jordan, and I've already moved onto book 2 with Moncrief and Roslyn, the middle Loring sister.
