    1 thought on “Princess Charming”

    1. She was passionate, opinionated, tart-tongued, and prone to violence - just the sort of spirited female who most appealed to him. The kind who either fascinated or frightened men. And he was wholly fascinated.This is yet another retelling of Cinderella. It seems to be a staple of romantic literature. (See also: The Prince Who Loved Me.)Maura - Okay, stop there. How do you pronounce this name? I was saying it "Mow (rhymes with "ow!") rah." But who knows?Maura's mother died of a fever when she was [...]

    2. Cinderella is one of my all time favorite fairy tales so I was excited to finally read a book by Nicole Jordan when I saw she was going to be doing her own spin on the tale. We have all the classic elements: a dashing prince in the form of Ashton Wilde, Marquis of Beaufort and our lovely, 'lowly' Cinderella in Maura Collyer, horse breeder. Maura is devastated when her stepmother (not a total villianess which I liked) sold her beloved champion stallion to pay for her two step-sisters seasons (aga [...]

    3. Ashton and MauraReview on Fiction Vixen Book ReviewsPrincess Charming starts out with a pretty interesting plotline. The story is about 5 brothers/sisters/cousins that come from a family destined to only find true love once. In every past member of their family the person has either found only one true love or sadly has never found anyone. When his parents and his cousins’ parent are killed, Ashton Wilde, Marquis of Beaufort is left as the oldest member of the two families. They do have an abs [...]

    4. Princess Charming is the first book in Nicole Jordan's Legendary Lover's series. The series is about the Wilde cousins and their quest in finding true love. This first book sets the stage for other books in the series from the beginning when Kate Wilde is determined to see her two brothers and two cousins all find their one true epic loves. Kate is a somewhat meddling matchmaker that comes up with a theory that in order for each of them, including herself, to find their soul mates they must reen [...]

    5. How many heroines are admired by their beau for their "violent tendencies"? That would be Maura. She's a bit hot headed, isn't afraid of making a scene, and more than a little horse crazy. Apparently this is the recipe to catch a prince, because Ash didn't even try to resist. Maura can be immature, and Ash gets really sappy at the end, but overall not a bad read. I appreciate the different take on Cinderella, in that the only person Maura needs to be rescued from is herself.

    6. Good book. I really like the Wilde family. I love the way they are so close and help each other when needed. They are scandalous without being too bad to be accepted. I love the way that Ash's sister Katherine has decided to help each of them find their true love. Ash doesn't think it's possible for Katherine to pick the perfect one for him, but when he comes to Maura's aid at the ball, he is intrigued by her. Maura doesn't want his help, doesn't think she needs to be "rescued". She is very inde [...]

    7. I won my copy of Princess Charming by Nicole Jordan through GoodReads FirstReads. The premise of the story was about the Wilde family, five orphaned cousins and their uncle. One of the cousins and her uncle theorize that the Wilde's one true love stories mimic those of fairy tales, myths and even Shakespeare. The first story, Princess Charming, supposedly follows Perrault's Cinderella, however it's definitely not the Disney version. Maura Collyer, aka Cinderella, has a race horse breeding farm a [...]

    8. PRINCESS CHARMING by Nicole Jordan is an exciting new Regency historical romance. Book 1 in the "Legendary Lovers" series. Ashton Wilde, Marquis of Beaufort, the eldest Wilde cousin and is looking for true love by imitating history's legendary lover's,starting with Prince Charming. However, we have a Princess charming instead of the other way around. Enter, Maura Collyer,who isn't looking for a Prince or a husband at all. What follows is witty banter, a matchmaker,a fairy Godmother,passion,roman [...]

    9. Pretty good opening to a new series by Nicole Jordan. I think the fairy tale thing is a bit overdone, and Katharine's fantasy that each of her siblings is to live out one of the classic romances stretches the suspension of disbelief. But the story itself is actually fun. The heroine, Maura, has plenty of reason to despise Viscount Deering, who ruined her father by falsely accusing her of cheating, then illicitly acquired her prized stallion, which he abuses. We really don't like this villain, wh [...]

    10. I just did not love this. It was an okay read great premise but not so great execution. I did not like the heroine that much. I think the author was trying to give us a strong female character. However, most of her actions seemed childish and stupid to me. She was supposed to come across as this smart crafty character but she was stupid and rash. She acted without thinking most of the time and for all of her so called trust it seemed to me she went behind the Heroes back a lot. Then at the end s [...]

    11. Fun story but nothing mind-blowing. It was actually pretty predictable but still a nice read.I actually read this one because I wanted to read the second one. I hope there is a bit more angst or any angst. This one really didn't have much.

    12. This book was okay, but could have been much better. It seemed to me a lot of the character feelings we rehashed over and over in the book. I would have like to seen more original dialogue and wit!

    13. 3.5 Stars!Princess Charming was a very enjoyable read and a delightful spin on the Cinderella fairytale.The Wildes come from a long line of people who find their true loves. Now, one of the Wilde cousins believes if they imitate legendary lovers from history, they will find their own true loves. First up is Ashton Wilde, who uncovers his sister’s matchmaking ways when, at the ball his sister arranged, he comes across a damsel in distress at midnight. However, Maura Collyer is the furthest thin [...]

    14. I haven't marked anything as a spoiler since I don't think there's anything that really gives anything away. The only thing that might be TMI is something that seems to be pretty typical of Romances. This is the first time I've read Nicole Jordan and really liked her. I definitely plan to read the rest of this Series. The only thing I didn't like about the book was the fact that the Heroine (Maura Collyer) decided that the Hero (Ashton\Ash Wilde) was never going to love her so she left him. The [...]

    15. This was a 3.5 for me. The Wilde family is scandalous (not sure why) and big - 3 siblings and 2 cousins. They are all one big happy family as they were orphaned. The most precocious of the bunch has a theory that is her only focus in life it would seem and that theory is that there is a fairy tale applicable to each family member that determines the way they meet and find their one true love. It's a stretch but one that happens to be proven almost immediately by Ashton, the oldest.I liked Ashton [...]

    16. Nicole Jordan has come up with a new way to look at old fairy tales. In this first book of her new series, it’s Cinderella, the evil stepmother and stepsisters, and Prince Charming, all with a few changes to give readers a lighthearted historical romance.The Wilde cousins are as feisty and untamed as their name implies. Orphaned when they were all young, it was Ashton, as the oldest, who kept them all together and relatively happy, in spite of the loss and grief they all suffered. As they grew [...]

    17. After having the chance to read Lover Mine (the second in the series), I was thrilled to get a copy of Princess Charming at my local library. The more I read from Nicole Jordan, the more I am liking her even more and more. This new series by Jordan, is the "Legendary Lovers", which we see in Princess Charming, is instigated by the oldest daughter-who tends to be a bit bossy and overwhelming at times. She claims that each of them (herself and her fellow siblings) are destined for one true mate, a [...]

    18. I don't know why these fluffy bodice rippers have become so enticing, but they have. I can't explain it. I must be in the mood for irritating plots these days. Most of the time when I read romances I spend the whole book frustrated at everything - the dimwitted characterization, the most minimal of plot structures the fact that I've read 4 of them now this year sigh. At least this is the last one I own. As far as the plot goes this is (once again) a retelling of a fairy tale, which we know from [...]

    19. Originally posted on Joyfully Reviewed: joyfullyreviewed/new-rMaura Collyer doesn’t think of herself as Cinderella, but she definitely has a wicked stepmother – one that sold her prized horse to a villainous viscount. Determined to get her horse back one way or another, Maura steals into the viscount’s stables and takes what’s rightfully hers. The only thing she didn’t count on was her best friend’s brother catching her in the act…and tagging along as she flees London.Ashton Wilde, [...]

    20. Originally posted at: longandshortreviewsspMaura Collyer may seem a “Cinderella type”, but in truth she is a strong woman of action in an age when women, especially commoner women, regardless of their talents and intelligence, had little power or position in society. Maura does what she has to do, according to her way of thinking, and is willing to suffer the consequences. Her innate sense right and wrong and her sense of humor and sense of self-worth help her in times of despair. However, h [...]

    22. I won this book through the First Reads Contest on 01/30/2012 and received it on 02/06/2012!First things first I absolutely adored this book!! I read the whole thing within 24 hours and I really hated having to go to sleep and put Princess Charming down. Nicole Jordan is a really talented author that I wish I had known about years ago. Here's the deal. I'm not a big romance novel reader. I usually like murder mysteries or spy novels but sometimes I get a hankering (yes, I said hankering - it's [...]

    23. Reviewed By~sarah L.Review Copy Provided By~ARC Nancy Breland Public RelationsWith an entire shelf on my bookcase dedicated to Nicole Jordan's backlist, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Princess Charming, the first book in her new Legendary Lovers series. Loosely based on the timeless classic, Cinderella, we have the dashing hero Ashton Wilde, Marquis of Beaufort, Maura Collyer as the damsel in distress wronged by her wicked stepmother and the two (not so wicked) step-sisters.Ash's sister, Kat [...]

    24. 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 sco [...]

    25. This reminded me of a role reversal of Cinderella. Cinderella who is meek and cowed, Maura is strong and intelligent. The step sisters adored Maura instead of being mean and jealous. This book gets real interesting when Ash is in the picture as Maura's protector. Many interesting things start to happen. Not to ruin the story for others who may want to read this book, I can tell you that you will read about an adventure in Switzerland, a duel that may happen and more. This isn't the typical type [...]

    26. So I thought the beginning of this was really great! I liked the set up and I LOVED the cousins this series revolves around. But then it all kind of fell apart. The premise of the series is kind of forced. So, yes, there are five cousins (tragically orphaned) and people in their family fall in love and stay in love forever. I was mostly okay with that part, but then one of the cousins decides that, because none of this current generation has found their ideal matches, they need to emulate legend [...]

    27. Completely enchanting!Nicole Jordan's latest book, Princess Charming begins a new series in which the scandalous Wilde family begin taking on the roles of some of literatures greatest lovers in pursuit of finding their perfect mate. For Ashton Wilde, the Marquis of Beaufort his role is that of Prince Charming, but the lovely Miss Maura Collyer is not your typical Cinderella. Just as bold and daring as the Wilde's, themselves she's determined to never be anyone's damsel in distress, especially wh [...]

    28. This was a fun introduction for me to Nicole Jordan and her new series with the Wilde family. I really enjoyed our hero and heroine, Ashton and Maura. Being the eldest in his family, Ashton feels like he must be responsible for everyone. Feeling on her own for so long, Maura tries to be independent and her own problem solver. When her own quick wit and intelligence can’t get her out of the mess her step-mother put her in, Ashton and Maura leap in to an adventure trying to understand how to int [...]

    29. Meh.Okay, so that is probably not fair. I bought this, along with many others, in a fit of trying new authors. TWO YEARS AGO. Starting a new job and grad school apparently cut into my squishy book reading. This was a start of a series but I do not feel compelled to read anymore. When she (spoiler, but not really) stole the horse, I literally said out loud, to an empty room, "Hope you enjoy the gallows." Because stealing a horse was a capitol offense then. And yet, she did it anyway. (facepalm.)" [...]
