Pride & Passion | [Charlotte Featherstone]

Pride & Passion

Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game—flirting, dancing and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when—and who—she’s supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family, a home of her own, and a place to belong. But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy begins to wonder if she can indeed have it all.

Publisher's Summary

Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game—flirting, dancing, and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when—and who—she’s supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family, a home of her own, and a place to belong. But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy begins to wonder if she can indeed have it all.

But Lord Sussex is not the man the London ton has come to admire. And Lucy has some ghosts of her own, as well. Thus, when a blackmail scheme turns to threats of danger, the newfound peace of the Sussex marriage is cast upon the rocks. Passion has a price, Lucy learns. And not all ghosts stay buried.

    Much better than the first book. Yes this is a series although Audible doesn't indicate. Story, romance and narrator made this an enjoyable listen. Purchased on sale which was even better!

    "Wonderful"

    I was completely captivated by this sensual, exciting story. The characters are believable and endearing, especially Sussex. There is plenty of romance and an exciting mystery. Most of all, I enjoyed the reader's performance. The way she performs the dialog, with so much emotion and real feeling, made me feel that I could see these characters in my mind so clearly. I listened to the whole story in two days!

    "Great story!"
    If you could sum up Pride & Passion in three words, what would they be?

    Intriguing, suspenseful and steamy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like a story that has a good story, mystery and romance and this book had it all. The writing was very good and the characters were well developed.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book and simply cannot wait for the next book in this series. This is a great series so far and I strongly recommend it if you like a good hot romance.

    Story
    "Intense Passion and Mystery"

    Ms. Feathestone has delivered a book of equal parts mystery and passion. In particular, the love scenes are vivid and enticing. The narrator, Rebecca de Leeuw, is absolutely perfect with subtle but effective changes in her voice to denote the different characters. However, the ending is truly a "cliff hanger" and I don't believe there is a sequel. Absolutely wonderful until the end.
