TBR reviewer: B.H.
As whore for the Duchess of Arundel, Lady Riana Ellis keeps her sister safe from the duke’s lascivious desires. But the duchess now demands that Riana murder the man already sent to her bed.
But the wrong knight arrives.
Time is running out. Riana has set into motion the downfall of the duke and duchess. If she and her sister don’t escape, they’ll be crushed when Arundel falls. To ensure her sister’s freedom, Riana must give the performance of her life and fool the man in her bed...and the woman watching them.
Sir Bryant Cullen determines to have the duchess’ whore. Her land is a prize, but it’s her secrets he wants. Once he knows what she knows, he will control one of the most powerful
houses in Scotland. And she will be his.
But Riana waits for no man to save her, trusts no man-no matter how much he sets her body on fire. When Sir Bryant puts his life on the line for her, how will she stop his sacrifice?
The beginning is a bit of an information dump. That passes, trust me, it is worth reading on. The book unfolds at a perfect pace with Sir Bryant falling in love with Riana. In order to save her and her sister he comes up with the plan to marry her. It’s filled with twists, turns and steamy scenes that really made my toes curl. Passion is the perfect word to describe this book. The relationship that develops between Bryant and Riana is odd but intriguing and
really well written. A Knight of Passion had me reading well into the night as I began to care for the characters and wanted them to find their happy ending.
The only reason this isn’t 5 shiny stars (and it’s a very thin line) is the information dump at the beginning and that she occasionally fell back into telling mode. Overall, this is a very entertaining, steamy read that I will certainly be recommending.
