5.0 out of 5 stars Set in 1799 England and Italy 8 Nov 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The heroine is Georgiana Escott she finds out that her Uncle Phineas and her guardian Lord Danvers have arranged a marriage for her to Lord Harris. Georgiana is horrified as Lord Harris has buried many wives and is considered a despicable roué. Lord Harris insists that his wife be a virgin and to that end a doctor will examine Georgiana the next day. Realizing that she has one night to find the perfect man to ruin her she sneaks out(with the help of her young sister) and goes to the Cyprian ball.
The hero is Captain Colin Danvers he has just been cashiered out of the navy and his fiancé has given him the push. His cousin the Marquis of Templeton takes him to the Cyprian ball to cheer him up.
Some of the best lines come as Georgiana tries to get Colin to take her to bed, whilst Colin is playing the gentleman. However Georgiana wins and come the morning sneaks back home, but her Uncle offers her sister to Lord Harris when Georgiana fails the test, so they flee to Italy.
When they meet a year later Colin thinks she maybe the traitor he seeks and she realises he is Lord Danvers her guardian who was willing to marry her off to the despicable Lord Harris. Just when they might resolve things their ship is captured by the French and then the action and adventure really begins.
With lots of adventure, humour and steamy scenes coupled with brilliant writing good motivations and great characters both good and evil, this is a book I loved.

My first Elizabeth Boyle book, but not the last. Really enjoyable and entertaining read. The heroine needs to relieve herself of her virginity to escape an arranged marriage to an aging despicable lord. She has one night in which to accomplish this as the following day her prospective husband has stipulated that his physician examines her to verify her virginity. She makes plans accordingly and goes to a Cyprians Ball that night.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feisty characters 17 May 2003
By Tara A. Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Georgiana Escott has one night to find a man to ruin her in order to avoid marriage to the old and despicable Lord Harris her Uncle Phinas has arranged a marriage with for her. Knowing she will be subjected to a test to confirm her virginity Georgiana doesn't have much time. She decides to attend the Cyprian's ball where England's most notable rogues are sure to attend. Here Georgie meets the dashing Lord Colin Danvers, who has just been dishonorly charged from his station. Though resistant at first Colin, eventually succumbs to Georgie's aggressive advances. The next morning Colin finds Georgiana gone...
Finding out that her guardian and Lord Danvers is one and the same, makes the reunion of the stormy lovers filled with animosity and suspicion. Finding themselves on the same ship with Georginna's baby in tow, their reunion is stormy. Colin suspects Georgiana of being a French spy. Georgina resents Colin for being the mastermind behind her marriage betrothal to Lord Phineas. Their wonderful night of passion remains in their minds however and they find themselves drawn to each other. The book actually has two parts to it, the first being quite light and erotic as the seduction comes to play and the second being more serious once they meet again. The change in Georgina from seductress in the first part to angry and resentful woman in the second part is a hard switch to accept as a reader. I would have enjoyed one or the other, as I had quickly grown quite attached to Georgina in the first section.
Overall, this story is a wonderful read, and Elizabeth Boyle introduces feisty characters and an interesting plot.

4.0 out of 5 stars engaging Regency romance 6 July 2002
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Her guardian whom she has never met signs the document that forces his ward Georgiana Escott to marry a vile old geezer. However, before they wed, her fiancé requires proof that he is marrying a virgin so he hires a physician to examine Georgiana. The night before her nuptial physical, Georgie visits the infamous Cyprian's Ball to insure she fails the test.

Branded a traitor, former navy hero Colin Danvers is a man without a country. Needing to escape his troubles, Colin goes to the Cyprian's Ball where he meets Georgie. Both share an incredible night unaware that he is her guardian. Georgie's ploy works in terms of marrying the geriatric, but fails because she cares deeply for her one night stand lover with no hope for a future with him.

ONE NIGHT OF PASSION is an engaging Regency romance that picks up steam from the moment Georgie and Colin meet at the ball. From that point on Georgie comes out of her virginity in several ways that make her into a mature individual that the audience will like. Colin is an interesting hero because his disinterest in what happens to his ward fits a person with the weight of the world on his shoulders. Though the story line depends on the coincidence of a rather petite sized world, fans will enjoy Elizabeth Boyle's entertaining historical.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Romance 14 July 2002
By "joojoomo" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was my first book by this author and I liked it very much! It's a great fantasy to meet up with a handsome rake at the Cyprian's Ball and Miss Boyle takes that fantasy to the max! I knew Georgie wanted to lose her "virtue" to be spared from an arranged marriage but I wasn't sure if she really would go through with her plan to seduce the first scoundrel she found. It was cute how Colin and Georgie met up at the ball, and the sex scenes steamed up right away! There is plenty of adventures to keep things moving in the second half of the book and now I am very interested in seeing what Colin's rascal cousin (Temple) is going to get into in the next book. I also really liked Georgie's sister Kit and hope that she gets her turn sometime too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A romantic and enchanting read 23 Feb 2003
By K. Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
One Night of Passion is the story of Georgie Escott. Her sister Kit has stolen a letter off the desk of their uncle that says Georgie is to be married the next day to Lord Harris. This is shocking news to Georgie. She confronts her aunt and uncle and learns that indeed she is to be married to Lord Harris. But, there's one stipulation, Georgie must be untouched. She is due to have an exam the next day to prove she is. She and her sister come up with a plan that is sure to get Georgie out of the marriage. She'll go to the Cyprian Ball and seduce someone to get her out of her marriage. At the ball she meets Colin, who is Lord Danvers, who is her guardian, who signed the papers saying she would marry Lord Harris. Georgie and Colin don't know who each other are but fall in love with each other at first sight. Will her plan to get out of her marrige work? You'll have to read the book to find out!
This was such a good book. The story was well written and was easy to read and quick to read. The characters were well written and the plot developed at just the right pace. Everything came together for just the right read for a day spent inside or even a day outside relaxing with a good book. A book to read again and again!

3.0 out of 5 stars I was hoping for more.... 8 July 2002
By the Peripatetic Gardener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I usually enjoy Elizabeth Boyle's books, but ONE NIGHT OF PASSION contains so many inconsistencies, coincidences, and unbelievable events that it detracts from the story. It's not just that the characters do not behave true to their time period, sometimes their actions make no sense at all. It seems to be too hurriedly written and not edited at all!
