Not All Rakes Are Created Equal by Nicole Jordan

Wicked rakes abound in Regency historicals, but the delicious heroes in Nicole Jordan’s scorching Notorious Series are more exiting, more passionate, and more, well… notorious than any others. These guys are all members of the Hellfire League, a gentlemen’s club dedicated to pleasure and sensual adventure.

They also fall harder. "I find few romantic fantasies more satisfying than a wicked rake brought to his knees by the power of love," Nicole says with a smile. "When my heroes meet their match, their hearts are toast!"

The Notorious romances feature dangerous rakes and bold adventurers during the Regency era and are not for the faint of heart. Spiced with a touch of eroticism as well as powerful conflict and deep emotion, these historicals are hot enough to burn your fingers.

The fourth book of the series, ECSTASY, is a blazing tale of breathless passion, seductive desire, and deep love.

"What if the notorious husband you never wanted to wed began to resemble the imaginary lover of your dreams?" Nicole asks. "The result is a marriage of convenience with a twist and perhaps my hottest romance to date."

In ECSTASY, an unconventional beauty who faces ruination is compelled to marry her rescuer – a notorious gamester with a dark past. But although she’s vowed never to give her heart, her new husband begins to resemble the lover she’s created in her fantasies.

Currently Nicole has five Notorious romances planned. The first three award-winning books in the series, THE SEDUCTION, THE PASSION, and DESIRE, appeared on numerous bestseller lists, including the New York Times and USA Today. THE PRINCE OF PLEASURE, due out in summer 2003, is about Dare North, the wickedest rake of them all, and the woman who set him on his path to wickedness.
