“I loved how romantic this story was!”
~ Under the Covers
I’ve read and enjoyed a holiday novella from this series, so I was really looking forward to a full length book to see if I would enjoy it as much and hopefully have another historical series/author to get into. THE PLEASURES OF PASSION was everything I was hoping it would be. It was fun and sexy, and I literally read it in almost one sitting.
Niall and Brilliana were young and in love. Hoping to marry and live happily ever after as only two young dreamers could. Until they had to face a sad reality. Niall’s sister was raped and he killed her rapist in a duel. To protect her honor and not allow rumors of what really happened, he takes on the blame as murderer and flees the country. Hoping to take Bree with him. But her family situation is also dire and she refuses to go. Now seven years later, he’s been allowed back and is once again facing the woman he loved all those years ago. Now a widow and a mother.
I loved how romantic this story was! The main characters were endearing and their feelings should’ve been talked about more openly, but I understood why there was some miscommunication in their relationship. I fault mostly him for his blind belief in a certain someone. But, even though I usually dislike miscommunication, this wasn’t the main problem of their relationship in my opinion and so it didn’t bother me enough.
There’s a little intrigue to keep things interesting as Niall and Bree work together to either uncover her father’s role in a counterfeit operation, or proof his innocence and hopefully save his life.
This is definitely a light historical romance type of read and it’s exactly what I was looking for. The writing flowed seamlessly, the dialogue was witty and I just wanted these two to finally get their second chance. I’ll be on the lookout for more from this author for sure.
