In A Touch of Passion, we find an unconventional heroine who’s spirited, bold, and not afraid to live life to its fullest. Falling ill at a young age, Lady Portia Flagstaff decided that life must be lived and she’s not about to miss a single moment of adventure. She even runs her own business (I’m not sure which is the bigger scandal – the fact that a woman is intelligent enough to run a business or that Portia dares to do so) Yet, her biggest obstacle is the man she’s loved all her life.
Lord Grayson Devlin, Viscount Blackwood, has good reasons for protecting his heart. He lost his family when he was only twelve. He’s been to war – seen unspeakable things – watched his best friend die. Despite his self-blame, he honors his commitment to Portia’s brother to watch over her. Though he knows she’s the only woman he could ever care for, won’t admit even to himself that he loves her, he refuses to surrender to her charms.
A Touch of Passion is the first book I’ve read by Bronwen Evans, but it won’t be the last. It’s the third book in the Disgraced Lords series, yet it fully reads as a stand-alone. However, I’ll definitely be going back to books #1 and #2 before book #4 comes out this fall. Her characters are full of life, nothing ordinary or ho-hum about them, while maintaining the integrity and limits of the time period. Romantic and sexy,.the story’s fast-paced, making you turn every page with anticipation. A twisting adventure, full of risk and mystery. The plot is filled with wonderful surprises that will have you staying up late to read the final page.
A Touch of Passion gets FIVE Red Pumps!
In the latest Disgraced Lords novel from USA Today bestselling author Bronwen Evans, a vivacious thrill seeker clashes with her dutiful defender—causing irresistible sparks to fly.
Independent and high-spirited, Lady Portia Flagstaff has never been afraid to take a risk, especially if it involves excitement and danger. But this time, being kidnapped and sold into an Arab harem is the outcome of one risk too many. Now, in order to regain her freedom, she has to rely on the deliciously packaged Grayson Devlin, Viscount Blackwood, a man who despises her reckless ways—and stirs in her a thirst for passion.
After losing his mother and two siblings in a carriage accident years ago, Grayson Devlin promised Portia’s dying brother that he’d always watch over his wayward sister. But having to travel to Egypt to rescue the foolhardy girl has made his blood boil. Grayson already has his hands full trying to clear his best friend and fellow Libertine Scholar of a crime he didn’t commit. Worse still, his dashing rescue has unleashed an unforeseen and undesired consequence: marriage. Now it’s more than Portia he has to protect . . . it’s his battered heart.
