Princess Charming by Nicole Jordan

Goodreads Description:

In Nicole Jordan’s dazzling new Regency series, the scandalous Wilde cousins seek true love by imitating history’s legendary lovers . . . beginning with Ashton Wilde, Marquis of Beaufort, who takes on the daunting role of Prince Charming to an unlikely Cinderella.

Thanks to the mischievous meddling of his matchmaking sister, Ashton Wilde meets a damsel in distress during the midnight magic of a lavish ball. But Maura Collyer isn’t looking for a prince—or an intimate pairing with any member of the scandalous noble Wilde family.

Intrigued by Maura’s beauty and daring, Ash is determined to aid in the rescue of her beloved stallion, gambled away by her wicked stepmother to an evil viscount. As their adventure becomes rife with peril and passion, Ash suspects he’s found his heart’s desire.

Even though her dearest friend may be her self-proclaimed fairy godmother, Maura is mortified at being pushed into a romance with a notorious rake such as Ash. Dashing and charming, he comes to Maura’s rescue just in time to help her steal back her precious horse. As they flee across the countryside, she can’t resist his sweet seduction. But is her prince playing a role in a fairy tale to test an improbable theory, or is the love awakening in her heart proof of her own happily ever after? 

My Rating:

My Review:

Maura is a woman who has her pride but she must get her prize breeding horse back.  He's more then just a horse, he's her pet and her father gave him to her.  Now that her father is gone she can't to be with out her horse.  Maura's step mother stole his papers and sold him to the very man responsible for Maura's fathers death, even if indirectly.  Maura's first attempt at asking for her horse goes terribly wrong and Ashton Wilde witnesses it all.  Maura ended up loosing her temper and kneeing the scoundrel all while Ashton watched, just about to step in to be the knight in shining armor.  He however learns Maura is more then able to hold her own and that intrigues him.  Ashton tells himself he's just helping Maura because she's best friends with his sisters but its more then that and as they spend more time together he realizes he can't let her go.  Ashton and Maura and real funny together and their romance is an inferno!  The mystery and action in this books is fabulous and I loved seeing such a strong independent female in that era of time!  I really enjoyed getting to know the other family members and I hope the author gives them all their own book and romance!  I know I'll keep this author on my list of author's to keep track of!  Fabulous book!
