Pride and Passion
by Charlotte Featherstone
Published November 15, 2011 by HQN Books
But Lord Sussex is not the man the London ton has come to admire. And Lucy has some ghosts of her own, as well. Thus, when a blackmail scheme turns to threats of danger, the newfound peace of the Sussex marriage is cast upon the rocks. Passion has a price, Lucy learns. And not all ghosts stay buried.

Adrian and Lucy's road to everlasting love was quite a rocky one. Adrian has been smitten ever since first sight while Lucy believes her heart lies elsewhere and certainly not with a man she feels is a cold-hearted prig. Deadly secrets are revealed and evil enemies hatch nefarious schemes. Will danger bring them closer together or separate them forever?
Adrian and Lucy are so similar it is easy to see why they are so drawn to one another. Both suffer from feelings of worthlessness and loneliness and are deeply passionate, though they keep it hidden well.
The end of Pride and Passion left me gasping and clamoring for more. I eagerly anticipate Temptation and Twilight, the next book which releases sometime in July 2012.
