I really enjoyed the premise of this story. Katharine Wilde was asked by her aunt to help a rich, dashing American who recently inherited an English earldom learn how to be act, look like an English earl and find him a wife. There's just one problem. The new earl in question was the same man who rejected Kate 6 years ago.

The set up was quite intriguing and it's right up my alley. I was expecting angst because when you have a heroine coming to face-to-face with the man of her dreams after a humi

Book Review For: My Fair Lover by Nicole Jordan 'My Fair Lover' by Nicole Jordan is Book Five in The "Legendary Lovers" series. This is the story of Lady Katherine Wilde and Brandon Deverill. I have read the other books in this series but feel this can easily be a standalone book. Brandon is half American and half English and went to fight for the American side a few years back,in addition he was a pirate. But now his Uncle has died and left him an English Title and Brandon has come back to Engl ...more

I will have to say that I was so excited to be granted a copy of My Fair Lover...this series has been very close to my heart. I love retellings, especially those with famous tales or fairy tales and this author has done a wonderful job with these retelling. My Fair Lover follows My Fair Lady. So for those of you who love that play...this book is for you. I personally have never seen My Fair Lady yet, but now I definitely want to. Our deligh

ARC provided by publisher and NetGalley for an honest review.

Lady Katherine Wilde is well know as being a excellent matchmaker. She's helped her family all find love and believes/hopes she will someday. Well she though she had found love with Brandon Deverill, she had declared her feelings at the young age of eighteen in a manner that is seared in her mind (as well as Brandon) but unfortunately he rejected her.

Six years later Katherine is still holding out hope for true love, she's put Brandon

4.5 Stars!

My Fair Lover had an amazing romance with fantastic characters and was definitely my favorite book in the Legendary Lovers series.

When Lady Katherine Wilde agrees to help Brandon Deverill find a bride after he rejected her six years ago, she believes all feelings she had for him are gone. Her agreement to help, however, comes with the condition that he escorts her to France and protects her from pirates while helping her discover where her parents’ ship sank. When Deverill kisses her t

But now he’s back, having recently inherited an English barony. He’s back to stay and ready to settle down. For years, his memories of Kate lingered and although he doesn’t believe in love, Brandon is determined to find out if what he felt for K

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin

Six years ago Lady Katherine Wilde was in love with Brandon Deverill and attempted to seduce him. At the time he was about to leave to fight in a war against the British, so Deverill chose to do the honorable thing and turn her away. Now there’s peace between their countries and Deverill has inherited a title, which means he needs a suitable wife. Who better to find him a wife than consummate matchmaker Kate Wilde? Kate agrees to his plan in exchange for

Nicole Jordan never disappoints! I loved this book, it has everything I like in a historical romance - a possessive, determined hero, a smart, equally determined heroine, hot love scenes, action, adventure and a soulmate type love!

Lady Kate Wilde has been recruited to help Brandon Deverill, newly minted Baron Valmere find a bride. Six years ago Kate had hoped to be that bride, but Deverill made it clear that she was not the woman for him. Kate has convinced herself that she is over Deverill and

Delightfully enthralling tale of love tempered with wit and adventure. Nicole Jordan has added another delightful read to the Legendary Lovers series.

Brandon Deverill is in love with Lady Katherine Wilde – but he doesn’t know it and neither does she. She loves him too – and she doesn’t know it and neither does he. What a delightful, tangled, twisted set of emotions these two unleash on each other.

The one sure thing is – Brandon wants Katherine

ARC REVIEW

My Fair Lover is book five in Nicole Jordan's Legendary Lovers series. It's fine to read as a stand alone, I haven't read any of the others and I was able to follow just fine. It was quite amusing to find out the matchmaker in the other book is the main character in this book. Normally I love Pygmalion/ My Fair Lady type tropes but this one fell flat a little for me. Brandon kept annoying me throughout the whole book, I kept wanting to scream at him that he does love her, what he's fee

My Fair Lover is intended to be a gender-reversed, Regency version of Pygmalion. Lady Katherine Wilde is a darling of the ton, and just the woman Brandon Deverill, newly minted Earl and former American privateer, needs to teach him to fit into the ways of London high society.

The problem is that they have History. Six years ago, Kate had such a huge crush on Deverill she attempted to seduce him by putting herself naked in his bed. Knowing that he had to leave for the Americas, Deverill did the ho

What could be better than a regency romance? A regency romance with pirates, sunken treasure, and a boatload of passion, of course. #5 in Nicole Jordan’s Legendary Lovers series, My Fair Lover is a sizzling adventure across land and sea.

Lady Katherine Wilde has been the consummate matchmaker for family and friends but she’s never found her own love. She thought she had 6 years ago in Brandon Deverill. She’d thrown herself at him but he’d rebuffed her, wounding her heart and her pride. Now he’d

My Fair Lover is the first book I have read by Nicole Jordan but it won’t be the last. I have been in a historical romance mood lately and this book came to my attention at just the right time. Even though this is the 5th book in the Legendary Lovers series, I didn’t feel like I was missing anything by not having read the first four.

Lady Katherine Wilde is well known among the rich and titled of London. She is rich and beautiful but holding out for the one thing she isn’t sure she will ever find

My Fair Lover was a steamy romance novel that I really enjoyed. Lady Katherine Wilde humiliated herself six years ago at the age of eighteen when she crawled into bed with Brandon Deverill only for him to turn her away. She sets out to prove she is over him. From their first meeting in six years, she realizes she is far from over him. What she does not know is that he has come home not only to take over his noble role but also to see if Katherine would be a suitable bride for him. He has plotted ...more

Brandon Deverill has come back to England after a 6 year hiatus. Lady Katherine Wilde is in love with him or was until an embarrassing incident.
It is a very racy novel, and is not your usual story line. The banter between characters is engaging and fun. The descriptions were great, especially about the ruins, and their ponds. There was danger, intrigue and pirates, or use to be pirates. She was a champion matchmaker and she had matched all her family. The family and friends were very loyal and l

When it comes to Deverill, Kate is not above busting his balls, "She didn’t trust his mild reply. “‘Better’ is not good enough. You will promise to behave as a gentleman, not a heathen pirate.” Deverill knows that sometimes he has to step back and let his woman take the reins, "He gave an exaggerated sigh. “You have not wounded me. I am resigned to going through life with you occasionally wearing the breeches in the family.” I loved this book, I loved Deverill the man was totally over the moon w ...more

I fell in love with the Legendary Lovers series from the start, giving each character a small piece of my heart. Each story made me want more of this cast. But of course, as a redhead, Lady Katherine always intrigued me more than the others. I just couldn’t wait for this installment to read her experience. Unfortunately, despite my desire to the contrary, My Fair Lover didn’t keep my interest.
