So that is why she has no plans to marry again. Passion is determined to live her life just the way she wants it. A very hot passionate affair is not high on her list to do, but an incident at the Chrystal Palace throws her into the arms of a nameless gorgeous stranger, who seduces her behind a huge screen.

He finds a beautiful widow instead who makes his blood boil like crazy. Mark cannot let the opportunity pass by and seduces her behind huge screen and is determined to meet her again, because there is something about her he just cannot let go of.

The main-characters Passion and Mark belong together from the first moment they meet. The moment they meet at Chrystal Palace you can feel the firework between them.

Mark Hawkmore is a determined man who never wants to marry. Now he is being blackmailed into a marriage and to protect his younger brother he agrees to meet this young woman. But the moment he sees the beautiful widow he knows he has got to have her in his bed or should I say behind a screen.

As secondary characters we find a very wicked evil mother, the young cousin and betrothed Charlotte, the gorgeous younger brother Matt and last but not least the devoted sisters, who are quite a couple themselves.

With this novel Lisa Valdez has outdone herself, the only thing I can say that it is a very sexy and fabulous story. The first scene in this novel takes your breath away and lures you into a steamy passionate love affair between two fabulous characters.

Well to me Lisa Valdez is one of the best historical authors at the moment. Some of the love scenes are very steamy and hot. I truly can say this novel is one of the best I’ve read lately.
This book was one that kept me enthralled, the talent of Lisa Valdez is that she definitely knows to keep the attention of the readers, with feelings like passion, betrayal and love.

Hot and steaming, this is a novel that lures you into a very passionate love story.
