Book Description

25 April 2013 Daring Hearts (Book 2)


A brilliant pianist and notorious rake, Sebastian Hall indulges his passion for music and women with equal aplomb. But now that his elder brother has married, his father insists he pursue a more respectable path and find a suitable wife.


As a girl, Clara Whitmore quietly loved her piano teacher from afar. Yet her youthful crush cannot compare to the powerful desire she feels when she unexpectedly meets Sebastian again. Perhaps the man who once dominated her dreams could be the husband she has hoped for--and save her from the fate she most fears...


Risking scandal, ruin, and their own reputations, Sebastian and Clara enter into a marriage of convenience. But the pair soon discovers that their undeniable attraction is anything but convenient. Swept up in a crescendo of desire, Sebastian and Clara take each other to new heights of ecstasy - until secrets from the past threaten to doom the duet forever. Now Sebastian will have to change his tune - and prove his love is true.

5.0 out of 5 stars To love a man that is like hot cocoa on a winter night, can you do any better than that 19 July 2013
By Mary J. Gramlich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Mrs. Clara Winter is a widow with little power but will give up everything she owns to have her son back in her life, even marry a man she barely knows. Clara loved Sebastian Hall as a child and seeing him now as a man after so many years apart only made her heart love him more. Sebastian is the answer to her prayers and if she can convince him of this as fact, perhaps he will marry her and provide love and her son. Sebastian may be a world-renowned pianist but trouble is brewing in his life.

Sebastian just walked away from a prestigious position and while the questions are flowing about why, Sebastian is not saying what happened. Clara coming back into his life will solve so many issues that are pressing upon his shoulders, especially his demanding father's need for him to marry. In additional to all the other reasons the most important is Clara's uncle, an eclectic inventor who may have a piece to a puzzle he is trying to solve. A merging of Sebastian and Clara right now is a marriage of love but one that both definitely need. Two people as kind and generous as Sebastian and Clara would have a marriage that melts together love, intelligence, and a common interest in doing the right thing.

While Clara must battle the cruelty of her father and the control he has over her, Sebastian is dealing with a mother long forgotten that has come back, and a father that wants no hint of scandal and will go to any length to avoid any turmoil. Together this couple proves that you can be another persons' salvation and that person will definitely make you be the person you were always destined to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music brings them alive 16 July 2014
By Mary Chen @ *Buried Under Romance* - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved the poignancy of this novel - Clara's fear of losing her current stability, paired with Sebastian's inward struggle with fulfilling his duty to his family and wanting to prolong his pursuit of music. Their respect positions in this novel with regard to Sebastian's spy mission make their acquaintance all the more dangerous, yet music, which was the tie between them, had brought them together once more. This was a bittersweet read replete with a great happily-ever-after.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very well written romance 17 Jun 2013
By Kellianne Stevens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A Passion for Pleasure is Nina Rowan's second book in the Daring Hearts series. I somehow missed the opportunity to read her debut novel (A Study in Seduction), but I am glad to have read this one. Rowan is a talented writer who has created an intriguing story with a considerable amount of drama and suspense.

Clara Winter is a young widow living with her eccentric uncle who creates automata, self-operating machines. Her dead husband left custody of her son to her father who won't let Clara see him. Sebastian Hall, a brilliant pianist and Clara's piano teacher for years before, appears on a mission for his brother. He is a lost soul, having recently developed a disability with his hand. Sebastian and Clara make a bargain to marry as a way to help each other. There are many interconnected subplots that must be untangled as Sebastian and Clara work their way toward love.

I truly enjoyed reading A Passion for Pleasure. The characters were authentic and had a great deal of depth. Issues of forgiveness, family loyalty, and finding a new purpose in life were intertwined with intrigue and mystery. The story line was a bit complicated, but not overly so. Some of the characters were introduced in the first book, but it is not necessary to have read it to understand this one. I look forward to reading the upcoming books about the Hall family. A very solid, well written historical romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm and sexy love story with a great story line! 14 Jun 2013
By bettysunflower - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Sebastian Hall is a gifted pianist and a well know rake. He has a zest for life and a vitality that draws people to him. Unfortunately Sebastian is suffering from a disability that makes playing the piano impossible. He has agreed to help his brother find the plans for a machine that he wants to build and perhaps sell.
Clara Whitmore knows Sebastian from her early teen years when she and her brother took piano lessons from him. The plans for the machine that Sebastian's brother has asked him to find could be in the possession of Clara who helps her Uncle build some machines. When Sebastian approaches Clara and asks for her help, Clara sees a way that they can help each other. Clara proposes marriage to Sebastian.
I found the characters very likable and loved that they were having a nice love story. There was a lot of sexual tension between the two main characters. There were enough supporting characters to keep the story interesting and moving nicely. I enjopyed it and will watch for more from this author.
