Publisher's Summary

Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game—flirting, dancing, and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when—and who—she’s supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family, a home of her own, and a place to belong. But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy begins to wonder if she can indeed have it all.
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.

Ack!!! Cliffhanger

Would you listen to Pride & Passion again? Why?

Yes, it was seductive and dark and gritty. No one writes a love scene like Featherstone.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pride & Passion?

All the love scenes are memorable. There enticing and exciting.

Which character ??? as performed by Rebecca de Leeuw ??? was your favorite?

Lord Sussex. I loved the readers smooth rich voice. Her different accents were intriguing and even though she is a women she did a pretty descent job as a man.

Any additional comments?

I wish books that were cliffhangers came with warnings. I like to read them in succession instead of having to wait months for the next book to come out. So be forewarned, if you don't like to wait either, the end is the beginning of another book.

Where does Pride & Passion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very intriguing and gripping. One of the better audio books I have read.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the plot, the mystery, the true passion and love described, and how you can truly love another and share your soul with them.

What does Rebecca de Leeuw bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

the drama in her reading was exceptional. you could really FEEL the characters, their emotions and passions. The voiceovers were great!!!

Any additional comments?

Although I enjoyed this book immensely. It is a cliffhanger. You know who Orpheus is; or at least one thinks they do. I wanted more. I wanted a true conclusion. I was looking to see if it was part of a series because it ended slightly abruptly. Still....a very enjoying book. Loved the story, the plot, Ms. de Leeuw was simply fantastic. Thanks for such a great book.
