Pride & Passion by Charlotte Featherstone
Book Description from Charlotte Featherstone’s Website:
They each have their secrets. But what they share is 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.
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.
Lisa’s Thoughts: Okay, let me just start off by saying how much I LOVE this cover. The cover for Featherstone’s first novel in Brethern Guardians series was amazing too. It was a similar set up to this one but I think this one is just shockingly gorgeous. The background and sunset matching the heroine’s ensemble makes for a very eye-catching cover. I simply adore her dress and the bold, sharp color which goes perfectly with her hair and complexion. Right in the middle is our stunning hero in a sharp black jacket leaning in for a passionate embrace. I just love it!
This book will be released in December 2011.
