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 out ...more

Son historias llenas de tópicos y malentendidos que hacen que a lo largo de la lectura ames y odies a los protagonistas por igual, pero si algo tiene Sabrina Jeffries, son tramas y ambientaciones bastante buenas que hacen que no te des cuenta de que has devorado medio libro hasta que lees la palabra fin.

En este segundo libro la autora nos habla de Jordan, el hermanastro de Sarah, protagonista del primer libro y de Emma, la hija de un rector de provincia. Ambos se conocen por culpa de un error
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

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

Overall it's a ok story but the plots don't necessarily make you believe how the characters are behaving are true to the characters. The story falls a little flat. I also felt there was little other than sexual tensions between the leads.
But I will say, Ms. Jeffries paints a pretty jealous dude. The sexusl tensions are palpable.

Ah. Average read at the best.
After being blown away by "The Pirate Lord", I was so looking forward to Jordan's book.
Jordan, our hero meets heroine Emily one dark night after a ball- and kisses her- before discovering she's a pure virgin and they both part ways.
The rest of the book revolves around how the pastor's daughter and local psychic Emily, who is blackmailed by Lord Nesfield for a possible transgression- to pretend to be Emma and Lady Dundee's daughter. While she's tries this masquerade u

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

Jordan Willis, the Earl of Blackmore and stepbrother to Sara, the heroine of the previous book, meets his match in a most unlikely woman named Emily, an outspoken rector's daughter who enters his life by mistake.

Both of them fought their attraction, but you could practically feel the tension between them and it was inevitable that they would eventually succumb.

I saw through the mystery of who Lady Sophie's lover was from the beginning and I would have liked a few more scenes of the two together,

Me ha parecido el más flojo de la trilogía, un libro para pasar el rato, incluso lo he encontrado demasiado largo. A pesar que soy fanática de Sabrina, con este me costó engancharme.
La historia no es mala, quizá la confusión de identidad el primer encuentro me pareció un poco rebuscada.
Pero creo que lo que no me enganchó fue .... el pelo cobrizo de él

"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" !

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

La verdad, cumple su función de entretener y se lee rápido, es decir, la trama es muy activa y no hay momento para el aburrimiento con esta pareja, aunque el final se veía venir desde un comienzo. He de confesar que por momentos me irritaban los protagonistas: el conde por olvidadizo, con tal de alargar la trama de ella como lady Emma, él se contradecía a sí mismo y redescubría una y otra vez las mismas cosas como si fuese extremadamente olvidadizo; ella por bipolar, cambiante como el viento, en ...more

The naive romantic side of me is sooo happy because of first kiss thingy... I love the idea that a woman's first kiss would come from the man she's destined to marry and she won't kiss anyone else....

This one is an example of those kind of story... it made me sooo dreamy and giddy like a ninny hahaaha and I honestly don't mind it ... not until some Judas ruined it for me... Some asshole kissed her against her will thank god it's only once or I might lose my wits! hahaha I mean I had no trouble
The Forbidden Lord is a historical romance that had a promising storyline but failed to deliver a believable storyline. Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. The plot ran hot and cold. The chemistry between the Hero and Heroine was mild. The scenarios started to be absurd. The issues between the leading characters became repetitive. I will say, however, that the lessons learned towards the end of the book were noble and well-written albeit predictable.

Jordan, who avoids innocents at all costs, is intrigued by the widow who brazenly invites him home from a ball. Imagine his shock to realize that the widow is in fact a rector's daughter who is just as surprised to see him. Despite his surprise, he can't seem too leave her without a kiss that shakes him to his core. Two months later, Jordan is still trying to get Emily out of his mind when she suddenly appears in the ballroom masquerading as Lady Emma. He is determined to get to the bottom of he ...more

I enjoyed the bits about Jordan in book 1 and was really looking forward to his story. I wanted to see the reform-minded lord lording about in London and a wonderful story where he fell in love with a woman who was worthy of him.

And I really liked the beginning, where he meets a rector's daughter at a masquerade ball and mistakes her for a merry widow, IYKWIM. And Emily mistook Jordan for her cousin Lawrence, and asked him to take her home.

And can I just say right now how EXCITING it is to have

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.

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)

Tapi aku suka karakter Jordan dari buku 1 si, trus Emily nya juga bukan tipe menye-menye lemah jantung hehehehe...

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
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)
