"As the wickedly seductive Wilde cousins seek true love by taking a page from history's legendary love stories, Lord Jack Wilde plays a determined Romeo courting an enchanting Juliet. The last thing Sophie Fortin expects at a masquerade ball is a dazzling kiss from a pirate. Her desire quickly falters when she learns that her masked gentleman is devilishly scandalous Lord Jack, a member of the captivating Wilde clan--and a man she's forbidden to acknowledge. But when Jack begins a breathtaking seduction, Sophie can barely resist. Jack never imagined that the daughter of his family's mortal enemy would awaken such fierce passion within him--until one unforgettable kiss changes his mind forever. Soon, Jack is hell-bent on winning Sophie's hand, going so far as to abduct her to save her from marrying a rival nobleman. Determined to woo Sophie and her unyielding parents, Jack is faced with the one decision he'd sworn never to make. The secret heir to a prince, Jack has spurned his royal heritage for years . . . but for Sophie he'll risk all to turn a legacy of heartbreak into love ever after."--Publisher's statement on Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Lover-Be-Mine-Legendary-Lovers/dp/0345525299/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1368553792&sr=1-1&keywords=lover+be+mine+nicole+jordan#_.… (mere)

"Lover Be Mine" - this time it's the story of Lord Jack Wilde, one of the five siblings/cousins, though adopted. His sister and cousin planned and schemed to find Jack a true love and found a gentle lady, Miss Sophie Fortin whom they thought would be a perfect match for Jack even though Jack is known as the notorious rake among the tons, worse than his older brother, Ash. This time they would follow the legendary lovers tale of Romeo and Juliet, although noone here would die like in Shakespeare's story, but there're enough similarities and serious obstacles because the two families; the Wildes and the Fortins have been enemies, the family feud has gone on for three generations. Sophie's father is so fiercely against the Wildes and adamant about keeping her away from the Wildes at all cost.

Jack only meant to indulge his sister and cousin, to check out Miss Fortin, and to prove them wrong. Boy! Did he find out quickly that he was so mistaken, and had to admit that his female siblings might just be right. Their attractions for each other are undeniable, there's something about Jack that he's hidden from the world and not what it seems, and it intrigues Sophie. There's also something about Sophie that hidden deep inside this gentle and obedient young lady, but if stirred and awaken......

Meanwhile, Sophie was meant to do her duty by her family and to marry a duke who is twice her age. Within a short few weeks together with Sophie, Jack decided he can't let that happen and would do anything to 'rescue' her. Sophie is more and more in doubt with her own decision, about her marriage of convenience to the duke the closer she's gotten to Jack and known him more. What would they have to do to convince her father and get him to relent and let his daughter marry for love instead of for title and wealth?
All I can say without giving away the story and spoil it for others is that this Legendary Lovers series is getting better and better! ( )

Not one of my favorite Nicole Jordan books. The beginning was great I really enjoyed the interactions between the two main characters an of course with all romance novels, at least the ones that I like there is a happy ending. However, Ms Jordan fell into the typical melodrama found in many romances where the hero and heroine push each other away for the "good of the family" and "I must do the right thing even though it makes me miserable". I get frustrated with this over dramatization. I do like the idea of following the stories of Legendary lovers. I did not read the first book yet, but plan to do so and will try the next installment, hopefully this is just a blip in the series. ( )

I typically enjoy famous tales re-told and this was no exemption. Jordan did a good job with character development. I really enjoyed the hero, Jack, and heroine, Sophie. The plot was typical of a romance, but the ending was great, although I did enjoy the first book in the series more. I can't wait to read about the other cousins. ( )

3.5 stars. This was a cute book, but not outstanding...I just didn't feel terribly invested in the two characters and their romance. I'm not really sure why. The blurb at the end definitely has me looking forward to the next in the series, though--Skye's story sounds great! ( )

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lover Be Mine by Nicole Jordon is a 2013 Ballantine Publication. I would like to thank the publisher and Edelweiss for the ARC digital copy of this book. This is the second book in the "Legendary Lovers" series. Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone. Lord Jack's adopted sister, Katharine and his cousin, Skye are up to their old match making tricks again. This time they have targeted him. Kate believes the five Wilde cousins can find true love by emulating legendary lovers through out history. In the first book, Cinderella was the legend. For Lord Jack, Kate has chosen "Romeo and Juliet". The reason is that Sophie Fortin is about to accept a marriage proposal from a Duke that is more much older than her and a complete bore. She is only agreeing to the marriage because of her parents and her sense of duty toward them. Kate and Skye convince Lord Jack to rescue the lady from being sold into a loveless marriage. What Lord Jack didn't count on was his immediate attraction to Sophie. The two felt a chemistry between them right away. Sophie had lost her only sibling and felt it her duty to bring a title into the family. Her father had been cheated out of a peerage title because of a long standing feud between Sophie's family and Lord Jack's family. The loss of a title and the wealth that could have been his has become an obsession for Sophie's father. But when Jack is given a journal written by one of his ancestors, he finds that his family never intended things to work out the way they did. It was all just a terrible tragedy. Once Jack has his first encounter with Sophie, he is determined to set her free from her parents and a loveless marriage. He is also determined to show her what she would be missing out on if she married the staid Duke. Once Sophie has experienced a few smoldering kisses from Jack, she discovers a passion she never knew could exist. But, she is torn between duty to her parents and her own happiness. Because her parents are so set on Sophie having a title and wealth, Jack decides he will attempt to claim his inheritance from his estranged father. This would make Sophie a princess and give her vast wealth. But, will that be enough to satisfy her unbending father? Are Sophie and Jack doomed like Romeo and Juliet? Or will they have their happy ever after?Nicole Jordan is a wonderful author of historical romances. This one is really inventive. There is adventure, romance, scandal , but also there this is a story about the power of love. Jack is in need of finding peace concerning his mother's death and his fear of loving anyone, lest he lose them. Sophie learns to step out of her parents shadow and take up for herself. I loved the way the author built the sexual tension. Hot kisses, then a slow progression from there. Having to keep the romance a secret also added a element of suspense. I also loved Sophie's Aunt Eunice. She was a lady way ahead of her time. If you love historical romances or just any kind of romance, this is one to try out. I'll give this one an A. ( )
