Devastating Passion

Jordan Willis, the Earl of Blackmore, has played with the hearts of many a society belle- yet one stolen kiss impulsively planted on the soft, irresistible lips of the preacher's daughter, prim and proper Emily Fairchild, proves to be his undoing. Unable to forget her, he is more shaken than ever when he meets Lady Emma Campbell, an outrageously flirtati...more

If you've read my past reviews, then you know that I love Sabrina Jeffries's work. I fall into every world she writes and I haven't read a book by her that I've yet to like.

At first, I thought it was going to be a normal mistaken identity turn love affair novel, but this one is much more than that. Hidden love affairs, black mail, spying and even possible death. It was filled with twists and hidden agendas, I was up most sitting up reading in my bed.

Jordan is a character I fell for shortly into...more

This is the second book in the Lord Trilogy by Sabrina Jeffries. I loved this book as much or more than the first book.

The story starts during a country mask ball. The heroine/Emily mistakenly tells a mask man (she thinks is her cousin she came with) to take her home. She is dressed in a black gown because she has been in morning for her mother for the last year. The masked man is the Earl of Blackmore and he only has interludes with willing widows and women with experience. He thinks she wants...more

"Pertama kali kau mengutip ayat Alkitab untukku, kau telah mengikis sepotong hati granitku, dan kau terus mengikis hatiku sampai tidak ada apapun yang tersisa selain debu. Terima kasihku untukmu, karena menempatkan hati yang sesungguhnya pada tempatnya. Dan hati itu selalu menjadi milikmu."


Ini kisah tentang Jordan Blackmore. Lord yang terkenal tampan namun terkenal dingin dan tak pernah jatuh cinta karena hatinya konon terbuat dari "granit" !

Recommended to Jacqueline by: Impulse buy
I could not put this book down! Were it not for life interrupting my reading, I no doubt would have finished it in less the twenty four hours!

Essentially this book contained every aspect of historical romance novels that I love- or any good book for that matter. The pacing of a novel are very important in my opinion, because if they are not on point, a story can often have dry or dull spells within the story. Such was not the case for The Forbidden Lord. In its own way, the story read almost lik...more

"Sicché il conte di Blackmore si è finalmente innamorato — osservò sottovoce. — Amore? Chiamano così questa orribile condizione? I sudori freddi, il cuore che batte forte, la paura opprimente di vivere senza di lei? — Così dicono."

Mi piace sempre come scrive la Jeffries, ma ammetto di aver trovato qualche punto morto durante la storia (sopratutto nella seconda parte) che mi hanno fatto trascinare la lettura più del previsto XD Jordan è il fratello dongiovanni della protagonista del primo libro d...more

Confession time…

There is no doubt in my mind that my rating for this book is coloured by the fact that, prior to reading it, I had eagerly consumed Temptation & Twilight by Charlotte Featherstone, Unveiled by Courtney Milan and Scandal Wears Satin by Loretta Chase. So any book I subsequently read was going to have to pull something major out of the bag to topple these three from the winners’ podium! (Sorry, Olympics mania here in the UK is obviously affecting my brain)

I really enjoyed this b...more

udah tertarik nih ama Jordan dari buku pertama....tapi pas baca ini jadi kerasa biasa...ato gara2 heroine nya lbh menarik ? Hmmmm....

dari pertama rasa tertarik Jordan ke Emily salah tempat.maksudnya Jordan ngira Emily itu janda yg tertarik mencari teman tidur.jadilah Jordan kaget pas tau Emily itu kebalikannya. di sini mereka berpisah baik2. dan tidak mengira pertemuan berikutnya lebih aneh lagi.

nah, Emily sudah mengubur jauh2 harapan ketemu Jordan lg. gimana ngga? Jordan lord kaya, tinggal di k...more

Semoga review kali ini ke save yakk *finger cross*

Emily&Jordan, dipertemukan dlm kesalahpahaman disuatu acara Sara, adik tiri dark Jordan, dan Gideon, suami dari Sara sendiri. Jordan mengira kalo Emily adl janda yg baru ditinggal mati oleh suaminya krn pakaian berkabung yg dikenakan ke pesta Sara&Gideon sdgkan Emily mengira Jordan adl sepupunya, Lawrence, yg menjadi pendampingnya utk ke pesta ini.

Pertemuan tsb menghasilkan kesan mendalam bagi ke-2 belah pihak. Jordan begitu terpikat dg k...more

Bintang 4.
Buku ke2 seri Lord Trilogy.

Jujurlah walau sepahit apapun itu. Buku ini mengangkat tema kepercayaan dan keterbukaan dalam hal ini antara ayah dan anak. Seandainya ada kejujuran diantara mereka pemerasan yg terjadi pada Emily pastinya tak akan terjadi (lah entar gak ada cerita donk...).
Paling tidak suka dengan politikus yg menggunakan kekuasaannya dan sedikit info yg dipunyainya untuk memanipulasi orang orang yg lemah terutama pada gadis lugu dan polos seperti dalam cerita satu ini.

Oh yeah! A perfect stars for Jordan and Emly. Uh I really love them.
Aku suka karakternya Emily, yang berbeda dengan sifat manja, atau sifat-sifat Putri Muda lainnya. Memang karena dia adalah seorang anak rektor atau pastor, dia mempunyai sifat mandiri. Sifat mandiri ini aku sering baca di novel-novel HR lainnya, tapi sifat Emily yang berpendirian kuat, tidak mudah goyah pendiriannya segimana pun cobaan yang menerpanya, dia tetap memegang janjinya. Jarang karakter heroine HR yang seperti ini. Sal...more

Karena ini ceritanya Jordan, Earl of Blackmore yang di buku sebelumnya sifatnya aku suka, kukira bakal lebih bagus. eh eh tapi kok ternyata malah bagusan buku 1.
Buku Jordan ini ceritanya malah biasaa banget. walo sempat suka di adegan awal yang jordan kira emily adalah seorang janda cantik yang membutuhkan pelukan tapi ternyata emily adalah anak rektor.

yasudahlah.

cerita ini berawal dari emily yang diperas ayahnya sahabatnya, sophie, untuk mencari siapa cowok yang membuat sophie ingin kawin la...more

This book starts with mistaken identity: Emily mistakes Jordan, Earl of Blackmore, for her cousin and escort, because both Jordan and the cousin have red hair and are wearing masquerade masks. Jordan mistakes Emily for a lonely widow, since she is in black mourning for her mother. Only when they are alone in a carriage, Emily's reputation already in danger, do they discover the error.

Sometime later, a neighboring lord who controls her father's living and knows a nasty secret about Emily forces...more

This is the middle book in the Lord trilogy, and, like the other two, it's a bit of a romp, with occasional interludes of character development revealing painful histories and inner emotions. A fun read largely because SJ does such a good job building the ever-intensifying sexual attraction between Jordan and Em(ma)ily. There are evil, scheming relatives and unsuitable suitors all over the place getting in the way of the HEA, but there is connection and chemistry to get them past these obstacles...more

This is the second book in a loosely-linked trilogy. It stands alone well.

If the previous book subverted the pirate romances, this one is a send-up of the subgenre I think of as "disguised debutante". For some reason, our heroines have to conceal their actual identity and enjoy themselves at a come-out, but accidentally fall in love with the usually-rakish lord. The plot of this one is more than ordinarily complicated and hilarious, because our rector's daughter is forced by circumstances to pre...more

hahahaha.. aku kasih 4 bintang *biasa HR deh* hmpfh
Tapi aku suka karakter Jordan dari buku 1 si, trus Emily nya juga bukan tipe menye-menye lemah jantung hehehehe...

Lanjut dari Ending buku 1, Pesta topeng di kediaman Gideon, si Marquest eh masih Earl ding ya secara bapaknya masih hidup.

I love Jordan since book 1, mostly because his interaction with his sister, Sara, who is the heroine of book 1. So I've been waiting for Jordan's book the minute I was finished with The Pirate Lord.

I think Emily is adorable and she's perfect for Jordan. Their meeting in chapter 1 is also a great start. Their second meeting is also exhilarating and makes my toes curl. This could get 4 stars, but some things really bugged me, namely the inconsistency. (view spoiler)...more

Jeffries, Sabrina - 2nd in the Lord Trilogy

Jordan Willis, the Earl of Blackmore, has played with the heart of many a society belle - yet one stolen kiss impulsively planted on the soft, irresistible lips of the preacher's daughter proves his undoing. The prim and proper Emily Fairchild's innocent response sends desire surging through the notorious rake, and he can't forget her. Now, meeting Lady Emma Campbell, an outrageously flirtatious debutante, leaves the earl more shak...more

I really enjoyed The Pirate Lord and was looking forward to reading this book about Sara's infamous brother. Sadly I was disappointed as The Forbidden Lord just did not live up to it's prequel.

Jordan is Sara's brother and I did appreciate how this book literally "picks up right where the Pirate Lord ended". This is really where my appreciation ends. I liked Emily really well and was in to this story until the blackmail scandal/ultra ego Lady Emma was born. I did not like the "is she or isn't sh...more

Una historia magnífica!
Este libro me gusto más que "Lord Pirata".
Jordan Willis me encantó! (P.L.F)
Es esa clase de típico "chico malo y frío" que cree que no puede llegar a amar.
Me dio un poquito de pena que ni en una página apareciera Gideon, pero bueno él ya tuvo su protagonismo en el primer libro xD
"Lord Prohibido" también es recomendable, al igual que el primer libro de la trilogía.
Pronto me leeré el último libro que queda para al fin culminar con esta trilogía :D

Tidak seperti yang gw harapkan, gw lebih suka buku 1 dibanding yg ini. Alurnya kurang seru, muter2 dipermasalahan Jordan yang ngotot mau tau alesan dibalik penyamaran Emily yang bagi dia ga masuk akal krn ga sesuai dgn karakter Emily di mata Jordan. Dibuku ini gw malah lebih tertarik utk tau lebih byk kisah cintanya Sophie & Lawrence, sayang hanya dibahas sekilas n cuma sbg latar belakang. Jordan & Emily terlalu bertele2, Emily terlalu keras kepala, ga mau nerima lamaran Jordan n ga bisa...more

Just okay. The mystery kidnapper was pretty obvious from the outset. The ending was a bit too pat. Neither hero nor heroine were all that endearing. Liked the discussion on the Elgin marbles though. At least the usual family drama underlying all of Jeffries' books wasn't that overwrought this time around--nobody's siblings slept with their in-laws or anything like that this time. So a star for that.

I adored this twist on Cinderella. I have to admit that, yes, I did pick this book up for that reason alone. As some of you know, I have been collecting books with a Cinderella undertone to the story. I am planning on compiling them in one post when I finish.

When I found out that Sabrina Jeffries wrote a book like that I was thrilled. I adore her Hellions of Halstead Hall. She has a way of drawing you into the story and her Hero's never let you down.

From start to finish this book was and is a...more

Closer to 2.5 stars, if I'm honest, but I'll go with a very reserved 3 stars, because why not? Somehow the ending, rather insipid sequel-bait epilogue notwithstanding, pulled this book out of the nosedive to two stars it took somewhere in the middle. My reservations stem from some events that were >thisclose< to making me hurl my Nook across the room and leaving a 1-star, DNF review. I pushed through out of morbid curiosity and was nominally rewarded. I think. Jeffries' writing was compete...more

I ended up reading this from cover to cover in one day. It was a FUN read that gripped me from start to finish. I could hardly put it down to eat dinner. Had I made my point yet? LOL
The love scenes were exhilarating, the flirtation was adorable and there was at least one spot where I laughed aloud. These two characters were great, though admittedly I enjoyed Jordan better than Emily. However I didn't want to throttle her as I often do with heroines. Plus, I didn't guess the twist in the who-done...more

Actual rating: 3,5 stars

I'm giving to it less stars than the previous one just because I found it less interesting. I mean, I really liked it, but Emily/Emma was a bit boring at times, repeating all over again the fact that she's from a lower social status than Jordan is.

Anyway, it's a good read. At times predictable, of course, but good overall. Besides, we're talking about Sara's brother! I want one of those, where can I find 'em?

So, Jeffries is one of my new favourite authors. Gotta check mor...more

I loved this historical regency about a young and innocent rector's daughter that must masquerade as a lady while trying to avoid a certain attractive lord that knows the truth and will stop at nothing to find out what she's up to. Entertaining and fun, what a surprise, I had no idea I'd be so into this, I much preferred this one over the first in the series.
