Christopher St. John is the notorious and gorgeous pirate, who has been released recently from prison but with a reason. He has to find a way to seduce Lady Winter and get all the information about her and the death of the two husbands. But Christopher cannot deny the way his body and mind reacts when he is near Maria.

With the novel “Passion for the game” Sylvia Day grabbed my attention again from the very beginning and when that happens I find myself finishing the book hours later. She definitely knows how to write a perfect historical romance with a lot of sexual tension. The firework between the main-characters huge and hot and the heat is steaming from the pages when they enter the bedroom.

Through the story you really find some great secondary characters like Simon, the former lover and close friend of Maria. He will do anything to keep her safe and find a way to locate her sister.
Philip the loyal servent of Christopher, who collects all the information about Maria and her sister for Christopher.

I truly can say that Sylvia Day wrote a terrific story about blackmail, romance, loyalty and love. She definitely will stay on bookshelf and hope she continues to write great novels.
