Nina Rowan has a talent, her writing is beautiful and smooth. A Passion for Pleasure continues her Daring Hearts series, and captured my attention; I am curious to see how the other Hall siblings get their HEA. I will be going back to read her debut, and I look forward to the future books, Nick's especially (there's not much said about him, which, obviously, makes me even more curious about Sebastian's mysterious younger brother).
4 STARS! Truly an enjoyable historical romance, a real treat for lovers of the genre. Rowan is an author to keep an eye on. I believe we'll see many lovely novels from her in the years to come. It's not just a romance, though there is passion and tension aplenty; there is a story to it, as well as strong characters contained in A Passion for Pleasure. And let's not forget the gorgeous, almost life-like covers on both of Rowan's books—the dresses, and colors, are breathtaking, and I want the dresses for my own! :)
PRELUDE TO A KISS
A brilliant pianist and notorious rake, Sebastian Hall indulges his passion for music and women with equal aplomb. But now that his elder brother has married, his father insists he pursue a more respectable path and find a suitable wife.
MUSIC TO HER EARS
As a girl, Clara Whitmore quietly loved her piano teacher from afar. Yet her youthful crush cannot compare to the powerful desire she feels when she unexpectedly meets Sebastian again. Perhaps the man who once dominated her dreams could be the husband she has hoped for--and save her from the fate she most fears...
LOVE STRIKES A CHORD
Risking scandal, ruin, and their own reputations, Sebastian and Clara enter into a marriage of convenience. But the pair soon discovers that their undeniable attraction is anything but convenient. Swept up in a crescendo of desire, Sebastian and Clara take each other to new heights of ecstasy--until secrets from the past threaten to doom the duet forever. Now Sebastian will have to change his tune-and prove his love is true.
