REVIEW BY LEE ANNE:
A Passion for Him has it all. Many years Amelia Brenbridge lost the only man she’s ever loved. He died protecting her. Many years later her childhood friend is wooing her. Trying to get her to marry him. He waits patiently.
A masked stranger appears and awakens something in Amelia that’s been dead for a long time. Passion. Desire. But who is he? Why does she feel so much when he’s around?
This was a really good book. It had all of the elements I love in a book. We had passion, deceit, romance, murder, a little mahem, and a duel. What more could you ask for?
Sylvia Day did an amazing job of weaving a world where I could lose myself and dream of things that may be and things that will come. It was sweet and passionate.
One of the things I really liked about Amelia was her unconventionality. She acted with decorum and poise when in public, but when it was just her and Ware or her masked paramour, she threw convention to the wind and said what was on her mind. It was refreshing.
The intrigue and murder crossed country lines. The murders that began in France followed our masked paramour into London. There he was trying to find the real killer and clear his name. While trying to keep Amelia far from the danger, only put her in more danger than anyone realized.
The characters in this story were amazing. There are some great secondary characters. They’re stories are apparently in the first two of this series. This story only made me want to go back to read those stories. They are amazing and I can’t wait to read their stories!

ABOUT LEE ANNE:
I am a happily married mother of three very busy children. Most of my time is spent chauffeuring my kids to their various activities. I cram reading into any spare moment I have. Some days I can have an hour or two and others I’m sneaking in quick reads while waiting on the kids to finish their soccer or gymnastics practice. I like to read a wide variety of genres but I definitely prefer romance. I can’t really pinpoint a favorite author as it changes on a regular basis. I absolutely love finding new authors and giving their stories a chance to be heard. We all have a voice in our heads writing stories and those voices should be given a chance to be heard.
