Pride & Passion-Charlotte Featherstone

Pride & Passion

Charlotte Featherstone

Harlequin HQN, Nov 15 2011, $7.99

ISBN: 9780373776177

Lucy Ashton dreamed of marrying her true love, but her father the Marquess of Stonebrook, unaware of his daughter’s loneliness and desires, arranges for a proper staid marriage to Adrian, the Duke of Sussex. She misses her true love Thomas whom she had a fling with, but weds Adrian.

After they marry, Lucy is shocked by her new husband’s passion for her and even more so by her falling in love with Adrian. She learns her spouse is a Brethren Guardian of ancient artifacts and that Thomas still lives but is an enemy of her husband. Manipulated by Orpheus, the man the Brethren need to capture, Lucy inadvertently places her beloved Adrian in peril.

The second Brethren Guardian Victorian romantic suspense is an exhilarating thriller that grips readers once the players are established. The action-packed story line contains a strong lead couple although their relationship in several key ways mirrors that of Black and Lucy’s cousin Isabella (stars of the first entry, Seduction & Scandal Isabella) with Thomas as the refreshing wild card. Readers will enjoy Pride & Passion as Lucy learns the true meaning of true love.
