Publisher's Summary

Stranger...

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.

Lover...

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.

A PASSION FILLED EXCITING GEORGIAN ROMANCE

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.

Worth the price

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.

Yet Again...

I like this series for the most part but I just really wish that every single book didn't feature male characters who expect chastity from their female counterparts but then proceed to nail anything that moves. And this book was even worse because Colin literally mansplains to Amelia how men need to "release their seed" and how men are able to separate sex from love while women can't. My eyes rolled back into their head so hard I'm surprised I couldn't see the inside of my skull.

I Have a Passion for Sylvia Day

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.

Good storyline, Frustrated

Was an ok story, but the name pronunciations were so similiar, that I stayed confused on who was Collin and Curtland (never was sure of the other name). They sounded so much alike, that I struggled knowing who was who and caught myself wishing I had the book in front of me. I'm sure the story is much better than what I heard.

Men sound strange

Even though I love the sound of the narrator and the women in the book (Maria, Amelia, & Lisette) the men sound constipated! It’s hard to imagine them as strong and virile. Maybe get a male to do the men’s roles. Just a suggestion! And, the writer repeats chapters from previous books to lay out the story. I wish there was another way to do it. Like explaining the events from a narrators point of view, instead of repeating the chapter word for word. That’s a little annoying. Other than that, I like the book! And I would encourage anyone to read it. Fun, fun, fun

Alright

This wasn’t as good as the first 2 books and those 2 prior weren’t excellent but had very hot sex scenes. This one has only 2. The narration was good as usual. No confusing the males for the females although this book had quite a few English men that somewhat sounded the same. I hope the 4th book will be great. Seven years to sin is still my favorite of this author.

Passable tale

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.
