Waiting on Wednesday: Lover Be Mine by Nicole Jordan

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I adored the first Legendary Lovers book (Princess Charming), but it's the premise of the overall series that has me absolutely hooked. Each of the five Wilde cousins gets a romance that mirrors that of a legendary literary romance. For Princess Charming it was Cinderella and for the upcoming Lover Be Mine it's Romeo and Juliet. Let's hope Jack and Sophie get a better HEA than their counterparts ;)

Lover Be Mine Cover Title: Lover Be Mine

Book Description (from Nicole Jordan's website):

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 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.
