(Legendary Lovers #4)
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ I believe this is the first time I have read this author. I found her to have a very easy to read writing style that pulled me into the story.
Quinn was an honest, loveable hero with a great sense of humour. I found it refreshing that he was the one that secretly wants to stay married to Venetia. Usually, I find this to be the role that the heroine adopts. I love that he has always wanted her, has trouble resisting her and in fact steals kisses and caresses when he can. Venetia, is a strong heroine. She is very forthcoming and assertive, which sometimes gets her into sticky situations. The two together have good chemistry and I found Quinn's professed words to his wife very sweet.
As this was the only book I have read of Nicole Jordan's, I am interested in reading the others of the series. Those characters make appearances in this book and they make me think their stories would be equally as good.

Here's the Blurb:
Sparks abound in this sizzling new Legendary Lovers tale fromNew York Times bestselling author Nicole Jordan, in which a seductive rakehell must woo his spirited but love-shy bride while unmasking a mysterious assailant.
Despite his notorious reputation, Quinn Wilde, Earl of Traherne, has mostly honorable intentions. So when beautiful Venetia Stratham boldly enters a gentlemen’s club, demanding that Quinn stop courting her sister, he does what any bachelor would do: He kisses her. With her sharp wit, intoxicating passion, and surprising vulnerability, Venetia is irresistible—except for all this nonsense about threatening to shoot Quinn. But when clandestine enemies make an actual attempt on the earl’s life, Venetia is implicated. To save her good name, Quinn does what any true gentleman must do: He proposes.
Thus Venetia finds herself wed to arrogant, wickedly sensual Quinn, whose devilish ways are as legendary as his rumored skills as a lover. Yet vexingly, her body rebels against her vow to remain immune to his many charms. If only she could reform the infuriating nobleman—without diminishing his undeniable allure. As Venetia discovers that a true rake is hard to tame, Quinn faces an even greater challenge: winning his wife’s fragile trust . . . while defending both their lives.
