The arrival of Jude Castle, a fiery independent filmmaker, soon sets sparks flying as the two driven women clash both personally and professionally. Both have secrets they have spent a lifetime guarding, and both have chosen careers over love.

Say something about yourself!
Good, passionate, sexy
Fated Love and Crosswords comes to mind. Like those stories, Passion deals with a highly talented surgeon who has to overcome personal issues for the sake of love. In Saxon's case, it's an overactive nervous system and a past that she likes to stay in the past.
Dr. Saxon Sinclair. Coleen Marlo did a fantastic job with the character.
Neither. It was just a very good medical romance.
I was introduced to Saxon Sinclair at the end of Fated Love and was intrigued by the character. Passion didn't disappoint. Coleen Marlo's voice added so much to the characters Saxon and Jude as well as Maddie, Saxon's grandmother. I read the hard copy but the audio gave me something more.
I very much enjoyed this audio book especially because I am used to reading and listening to more urban lesbian novels and this kept me engaged especially with the hospital setting because I loveeee Greys Anatomy! So it kind of reminded me of that.
I liked that two people like Saxon and Jude who have somewhat the some similarities balanced each other out. They got each other although they had completely different careers its like they got each other.
I enjoyed when they first got together and all the scenes thereafter, its like the passion and fire the two had for one another just jumped out of the book. My favorite scene would be when Jude came looking for Saxon at her grandmother's house and told her how she felt.
I would probably take Mel out because she seemed like a good time but she also had a promising career.
I have already gotten Fated Love and will be starting tomorrow. I hope it is as good if not better than the first book I read by Radclyffe.
I'm a big fan of early Provincetown and all but one Honor, but Rad's stand alone have been a let down mostly. This one is different, short as it is, there is a lot of actual story here with great character development. It could have been a trilogy on it's own had she decided to explore every door opened into the lives of the leads. I hate it was so brief, but loved the glimpse into Sax and Jude's story nonetheless.
Some have said it already. This story has a solid plot with likeable characters, but it is too similar to other Radcliffe stories. I would love to see a new plot line with more nuanced personalities.
the doctor is in and the director is filming her. Great story! Great narration! Enjoy this book. Another Radclyffe treat.
"Dramatic ER romance"
Dramatic lesbian romance between a up and coming film director an and enigmatic head of TR. I liked the story and the romance which covers most of the story and is full of love, as well as the dramatic events. Radclyfee early work at what she does best.
I guess I have been spoiled with narrators, Abby Craden and Nicol Zanzarella who perform on the Radclyfee Honor and Provencetown series, who in my view are the best. I took me a while to get into narrater Coleen marlo, she does good characters and expresses a lot of emotion, but her pace changed in places which I found ackward. But also felt the quality of the audio was poor - an audible issue, to me it seemed like it was overly compressed when posted so sounded a bit like listing over a noise phone line, more quality checks should be performed, as its a shame when so much work goes into these from the author to the narrator. But I might be a bit picky, so please listen the sample before purchasing, or use the return for refund if you strugle. But its a good story and the narrator is good, so I do recommend it, just check the audio first. :-).
"A Must Read"
loved it from start to finish, Radclyffe never dissappoints. would highly recommend to read 😀
"Early Radclyffe is her best work."
This work was originally a fanficton Radclyffe wrote, and to my mind the early works that stemmed from this time are her best. There is a depth of character that seems to be lacking in the later works, as well as a more meatier overall plot-line. All that combined made this story much better in my humble opinion. I had read the story online before it was published as a book, and was pleased to see this one had made it onto the Audible catalog.
I hope more of Radclyffe's early work's find themselves into the catalog. I'm not likely to think about buying the later works as I do tend to find them revolving around the same basic premise. That's not to say that I won't buy them, but I will not be buying them just because they are out there, unlike the early stuff like this piece. 'Innocent Hearts' and 'Promising Hearts' are two perfect examples of books that I would love to see here.
Narrator wise it was okay, although again the engineering seems to let it down. I have noticed this a lot with Radclyffe's novels, and I wonder if it just the streaming, or if the studio they use for recording is not up to par. It could be something that the publishers might want to look into. Although there does seem to be a problem with sound quality on more than just these works, but whatever the reason it detracts from you listening.
