PASSION'S DESTINY, set in the ambiance of New Orleans, is the perfect
backdrop for a tingling story about spirited Jakarta Raven, never one
to back down from scandal, and straight-laced New Orleans District
Attorney and senatorial candidate, Zane Reeves.
Jakarta had been on the run for too many years, and finally comes home
when unjust charges are filed against her sister. She now realizes how
much she misses her family and how important it is to have caring people
around her. However, once her sister is cleared, Jakarta becomes
restless. Her plans to leave again are not welcomed by her family. But
what is more alarming is the fact that her restlessness will send her
to visit the man who prosecuted her sister, District Attorney Reeves.
Zane has had little time for romance, politics is his life, but
something about Jakarta arrests his attention, not to mention his
libido. The sensual attraction between them gets their full attention
until Zane's political aspirations become a major player. But Jakarta
has a past and with his political future hinging on scandal she does
not want her past to complicate his campaign. She finds a way to
distance herself from Zane. But will Zane, who has been awakened from
an emotional hibernation, forfeit a romance with a woman who has made
him see what is missing in his life, even for politics?
Ms. Wilson-Harris loves to take rebellious but empathetic heroines who
live life to the fullest, and align them with down-to-earth traditional
men. This story reminds me of my personal favorite, The Art Of Love,
in that I found myself again cheering for the independent,
effervescent heroine. This is a very entertaining read.
