He wears a mask…and he is following her. Staring at her like no other man since Colin. But Colin is dead and Amelia believes she will never again shiver with pleasure, never again sigh his name.
Until her masked pursuer lures her into a moonlit garden and a single, reckless kiss. Now she is obsessed with discovering his identity. Perfectly attuned to his every desire, his every thought, she will not stop until she knows his every secret.

"The undisputed mistress of tender, erotic romance." (Teresa Medeiros)
"Boldly passionate, scorchingly sexy." (Booklist on The Stranger I Married)
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Just when I thought I could finally get some sleep...... Sylvia Day brings out yet another must have listen in her Georgian series and once again I'm totally hooked.
This was particularly good - childhood sweethearts Colin and Amelia lose touch but eventually reunite years later unfortunately it's at the worst possible time for both of them (isn't it always!) as she's getting engaged to a long-time friend and Colin is a spy who's undercover and who want's her and out of the spy business. This is sooo touching as Amelia's torn between old love, a friend's love and a new exciting love and Colin has to fight hard first to try to stay away from her then to fight for her.
It's go passion, heartbreak, sex, tension, excitement and brilliant romantic characters to empathise with - there are some characters that we know well as we have met them before in previous books so, to get the most out of this series, they're not really meant to be stand alone listens. There's some bad language too so it may put some of you off.
Worth a credit? Again, and I've said it before in my previous reviews, it's a cheap series to just buy and we'll worth it - however I would gladly have used credits.
Cheaper than most paperbacks so why not settle back and listen to a little Georgian romance?
Collin and Amelia are star crossed lovers divided by bloodlines. She's a peer of the realm, he's a gypsy stable boy. Their love propels their paths together and then away, flash forward several years and Amelia thinks Collin has died (although how is never explained) and Amelia finds loving another man that's not Collin impossible until a masked stranger comes into her life and upsets everything she has settled into. Now she must choose between reckless abandon or staid security. The choices she makes will forever alter everyone's lives.
I liked how this story dives right in and captured my attention. I had never read one of Slyvia Day's books before so I didn't know what to expect, unfortunately for me this is a series and many characters from other books find their way in and out of the story making this book hard to stand alone. I would reccomend starting with book one and progressing from there. I often lost track of characters, playing a game of "who was that again?"
While I can't say this book is stellar it is a nice story and at just over $7 it's worth the price. Justine Eyre gives an admirable performance as the narrator, not my favorite but still pleasant to listen to. The sex scenes are a bit graphic so be fore warned. I did not take offense but some might. The story is confusing at times if your not paying close attention but other than I would say its good.
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Sylvia Day has a passion - a passion for writing exciting and heartfelt romances that really grip the reader and force you to hang on for the adventurous ride in which her stories take you.
Colin and Amelia are a perfect match. They both try to do what is right, and what they think is expected of them, and (more often than not) to their own detriment.
Both stubborn and unwilling to yield - except for in the bedroom! - what ensues is a roller coaster of emotion, passion, and misguided sensibilities.
Well written and with great characters that you want to hate but ending up falling in love with, A Passion For Him is another success.
Not sure why other reviews said this story has too many story lines or people couldn't keep the individual characters separate. If you read the series from book one, the beginning, the reader can follow exactly. Justine is one of my favorite narrators. Her passion and intensity is riveting and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Thoroughly enjoyable.
This one really got me. One of my favorites! This narrator is the BEST, by the way, and I love every story she does! Please keep her, S.D.! She is perfect for the timelines and eras.
This story is so utterly amazing and romanic and each novel builds on the last. I love that about them too. I love finding out more and more of each couple it stems from but this story in particular really grabs the heart.
the series flows very well and if u luv to go back in time this is for you
Sylvia Day is genius her writing envelopes you in the story bringing every detail to a reality. The narration and performance by Justine is wonderful. Her acting ability is top notch she emotes every character perfectly
After starting this book adventure based on my long drives, it has become an obsession, a method for relaxation and enjoyment.
Amelia's attraction to the masked Count and the intimate details of their affair was intense, but it lacked the quality of the other books in this series. I think that there needed to be less about the other love affairs and more focus on Amelia and the Count.
As for the performance, Justine Eyre is amazing and captures each character perfectly. I really enjoy her skills as a narrator.
The use of entire pages exactly quoted from the previous book supposedly dreams was not well done or effective. A little more effort might have made the scenes dreamlike if in fact they are necessary at all.
I'm afraid this flaw really ruined the book for me.
Story passable, voice of audible version not good. Spoilt it for me. She cannot do British or foreign accents or dialects well so should not attempt them! I'll try some others I the series, they have a different person narrating them I think.
