3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story sunk under too much sex 7 Jun 2007
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Sylvia Day's "Passion For The Game" is historical romance of the more earthy kind - there are more sex scenes in this story than anything else and, for this reader at least, it was a disappointment. The underlying plot and story of this book had potential: two very singular people, a smuggler pirate who is on his way to the gallows and a society Widow who is generally suspected of killing her two husbands, clash as they both try to use each other for their own ends. Both Christopher St John and Maria, Lady Winter, are interesting and lively characters whose strength of nature has been forged through their difficult histories.

Christopher St John has been released from Newgate so that he can get evidence against Lady Winter for the deaths of her two husbands who were actually agents of the crown. Lady Winter has been blackmailed by her murderous stepfather Viscount Welton to spy on Christopher St John. These two people therefore meet under the circumstances where they cannot trust each other as their lives, or those they love, are at stake. But as they spend more time in each others' company (usually horizontally in this book!) they begin to unravel the different layers of each others' personalities and find something rather more important together. There is also a subplot of Amelia, Maria's sister, and her blossoming into womanhood whilst under house arrest by her father - she is used as a bargaining chip to make Maria do Viscount Welton's bidding.

The plot is fairly good in this story but the disappointment for me was the ubiquitous sex scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Historical romance 21 Jun 2013
By Hintond
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sylvia Day you rock my boat, I have read all of the Historical romances that she has written and they are all so steamy I can't get enough of them, once I start on these books I really can't put the kindle down, the stories are all intertwined the same characters pop up time and time again you begin to feel apart of the history. Well done Sylvia, your number one fan.
