Reader Review: "To bed a beauty" is the second book of the Loring sisters' trilogy. It is a bit too much similar in the plot line and in the writing style to the first book "to pleasure a lady" so avoid reading this book right after the first book. Roslyn wants to marry for love. She believes that men tend to fall in love more often with their mistresses rather than their wife. Her mind is set on her neighbor, the earl of Haviland. In order to learn how to arouse her neighbor and make him fall in love with her, Roslyn is getting coached in the art of seduction by Drew, the duke of Arden , known as a fabulous lover and acynical bachelor.
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Nicole Jordan's Princess Charming.
Nicole Jordan takes the delights of the Regency mating game to breathless new heights in this daring second novel of a superb new trilogy, The Courtship Wars.
Clever and charming Roslyn Loring, the middle child of three beautiful, independent sisters, knows that true happiness lies in a marriage of the heart–and she has hers set on a love-match with a neighboring earl. Yet her sharp mind has observed an undeniable truth: Gentlemen lavish passion on their mistresses, not their wives. Roslyn realizes that to win her future husband’s devotion, she must learn the secrets of kindling a gentleman’s ardor. Fortunately, she finds a willing tutor in Drew Moncrief, the Duke of Arden, a notorious rake whispered to be London’s most magnificent lover. If his searing kisses are any indication, the duke is the ideal man to teach Roslyn how to be the perfect mistress.
Drew begins schooling Roslyn while coolly guarding his heart. But as best-laid plans are thwarted by unexpected events–including a night of unforgettable passion–Roslyn and her wickedly arousing tutor discover how easily lessons in pleasure can become lessons in love. . . .

To Bed a Beauty
How astonishing that a gentleman would ask a perfect stranger to become his mistress without so much as an introduction. —Letter from Miss Roslyn Loring to Fanny Irwin
London, June 1817
“They say he is a marvelous lover.” Unable to ignore such a provocative comment, Roslyn Loring reluctantly shifted her gaze across the crowded ballroom to scrutinize the tall, lithe nobleman who had just entered.
She had never met the handsome, rakish Duke of Arden, although she’d heard countless tales about him. He was the picture of a wealthy aristocrat–his fair hair gleaming amber under the chandeliers’ light, his commanding, elegant form garbed in a black domino, the cloaklike garment his only concession to costume for the masquerade ball.
He wore no mask, so his striking features were clearly visible. And his attendance was obviously welcome to everyone but her.

I really liked this book which was the second in this series. Roslyn is sweet and wants to settle down whereas Arden is completely the opposite. Watching him slowly coming around to Roslyn's way of thinking was very entertaining.
