Wonderfully HOT. A young widow Passion Elizabeth Dare meets a compete stranger, Mark Randolph Hawkmore, Earl of Langley in the Great Exhibition of Crystal Palace in London. Ms Valdez starts the story with no mucking around straight to business "sex with the stranger" in public and continue to BURN the pages with ultra-hot sex scenes throughout the book with various rapturous renedezvoux. With all the "actions" that happened in public and in private, Ms Valdez manages to draw a surprisingly well developed characters. It is the best erotic romance I had read for a long time. The brillant setting of the repressed Victorian time creates a wonderful contrast with the storyline and helps to stand out from all the Regency books. It has a good balance of story and hot erotic moments. This book reminds me of the early Susan Johnson books and the few good Cherly Holt ones. The language is a bit OTT, but all in all a keeper.

The book is erotic; have plenty of ice at the ready when reading !!-but it isn't all just panting & sighing- there is a plot- the hero is an honourable one who is caught in a dilema that is seemingly without resolution- he genuinely loves the heroine but is torn between doing his duty & his love for her.There are very interesting secondary characters, although some of those appear a little too late in the book-there is also an obvious opening for a sequel-which I shall get as soon as it becomes available.All in all, a brilliant debut- well done! Ms Valdez

When they meet at the Crystal palace it is passion at first sight. Passion and Mark indulge themselves with each other, igniting a heat that scorches them to the core. Just for once Passion wants to answer the call of her body, Mark is just fascinated by this lady whom holds his interest with her sensual nature. They embrace this erotic adventure and each time they meet it is the heart that answers to the call of their bodies.

Still evil lurks on the horizon with blackmail and the threat of a scandal. Mark and Passion stand divided by their heart and their duty which may very well destroy the blossoming feelings of a true love not easily found in their world.

Literally from the first page Lisa Valdez captured my attention as Mark Rudolph Hawkmore seduces Passion Elizabeth Dare behind a screen with his voice whispering words of passion and his body that acts upon them. It is a raw and wild need that drives Mark and Passion together and the intensity never wavers for one second and made me want to finish this story within one sitting. Regardless whom called, rang the doorbell or needed me in any shape, form or fashion, I wasn't going to answer. Mark is a man whom is brutally honest, on the brink of being a crude, but it still makes Mark all the more appealing and I just had to find out what kind of woman could lay such a claim to a man and if Passion would be that woman. All of this pulled me into their world and page after page I devoured this story like Mark devoured Passion, with utter want and need, focusing on the one person that brought pleasure.

And that it did bring for me....

I hope that this book is read with an open mind, because what first appears as almost pornagraphic sex in the opening chapter actually grows into a deeply moving romance. As this story of passion, maternal neglect and spite,compicated by blackmail, sibling loyalty and self sacrifice unfolds. It becomes clear how clever the author has been, she has introduced sex with stranger to set up her characters for the denoument later in the story and as our hero becomes more emotionally involved we wait with appaled, baited breath for the axe to fall. Fortunately this story terminates in a satisfying ending where the hero and heroine are reunited in happiness I got hot and flustered reading this tale but I also cried and went to sleep with a warm fuzzy feeling, actualy I lie, I pounced on my husband demanding how much do you love me!

Heres the gist, Passion's a widow who meets Mark a peer of the realm at the Crystal Palace during the great exhibition where he saves her from a falling palm they then have GREAT SEX behind a gothic screen. This one time never to be repeated event gets repeated again and again Mark can't fall in love, information about his brothers parentage is being used to blackmail him into marraige with the daughter of one of his mother old friends, guess what? the daughter is related to Passion. Neither Passion or Mark know this as they are on first name basis only. Passion finds out breaks of with Mark, the betrothal goes ahead but on the day of the wedding all is revealed and Passion's cousin release's Mark from his obligation to her. Mark finds Passion and all ends happily ever after. Pretty straight forward for a novel of this genre apart from the sex one could almost say gothic there is certainly plenty of melodrama.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Valdez's debut effort is beyond steamy but will plenty of heart and emotion to back the sensual bent of the read. As a result this is a very well rounded read that will appeal to most fans of historic romance.
Passion is saved from certain injury while touring the magnificent Crystal Palace by a very handsome man. She is immediately attracted to this handsome stranger and together they act on their passion not realizing that their paths are going to cross sooner rather than later and will the price of passion be more than they can pay. And will Passion have to walk away from a love she has been looking for all her life?
Mark Randolph Hawksmore is Earl of Langley. He doesn't believe in love and when his mothers past indiscretion comes back to haunt him...with Mark having to pay the ultimate price to keep a family secret he is honor bound to keep. Then he meets Passion and she brings his fuzzy life into great focus. She speaks to a part of him he never thought existed. He feels good when he's with her and everything is right when they are together. But, honor and desire don't go hand in hand. Will this powerful Earl be able to keep the family secret while keeping the woman that has won his heart against all odds or will on person's sin become his?
This story is very erotic read. The romance between the two protagonists is emotional and sensual. The reader will not be able to help falling a little in love with Mark. He is a very strong hero and Passion is his equal in every way. This was a very strong beginning to Ms. Valdez's writing career and I eagerly look forward to her next story "Patience."
