The Pleasures of Passion - Sabrina Jeffries

Reading a Sabrina Jeffries' book is a pure joy. Not only does she write such poetic words, she creates such fun and interesting characters.

In this book, we finally get Niall Lindsey's story. Ten years ago, Niall, who was in line to be the Earl of Margrave, was in love with 17 year old Brilliana "Bree" Payne. Since Brilliana hadn't officially come out yet, they had to keep things quiet.

When an unfortunate act is brought upon Niall's sister, Clarissa, Niall ends up in a duel, killing a man and must quickly leave the country. Niall begs Bree to go with him. When Niall won't tell Bree of the reason for the duel, she refuses to go, plus she can't leave her sick mom. Niall promises that he will be waiting for her and that she should go to his dad if she would want to get in touch with him. When Niall hears from his dad that Bree married someone else shortly after he left, he is heartbroken, and has sworn off women.

Fast forward 10 years. Niall has been pardoned and is able to return to London. He is also delighted to hear that Bree is now widowed with a young son. He may be heartbroken, but he still has strong feelings for Bree, which are proven when he sees her at Edwin and Clarissa's house.

When Lord Fulkham tells Niall that he has one last job for him, Niall is hesitant but it may be just what he needs to be with Bree again. There is money counterfeiting going on and Bree's dad may be involved. Niall convinces Bree that they must "pretend" to be courting for Niall to get close to her dad to see if he is involved....and that is when the fun begins! Since these two have such a fun history, the sparks were flying when they were just in the same room. Once the two of them started talking....all bets were off! Bree isn't the little, timid female he left behind 10 years ago. She is truly a little firecracker. I just loved their sparring together....it really built up the sexual tension between these two. Of course, over time, as Bree and Niall spend more time together, their pretending quickly turns into something else. Both of them are hesitant because of things they misunderstood from the past, but they eventually work through things to get to their happy ending. These two were destined to be with each other, it just took 10 years to finally get there!

Book Review For: The Pleasures of Passion' by Sabrina Jeffries
The Pleasures of Passion - Sabrina Jeffries
The Pleasures of Passion (Sinful Suitors, #4)The Pleasures of Passion by Sabrina Jeffries
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

'The Pleasures of Passion' by Sabrina Jeffries is book Four in the "Sinful Suitors" series. This is the story of Niall Lindsey, the Earl of Margrave and Brilliana Trevor. I have read the other books in this series but feel this can be a standalone book.
Niall and Brilliana have been sneaking around meeting each other...they are young and in love. But Niall hasn't worked up the nerve to tell his father that he is in love with Brillian whose father is of a lower Title and has a gambling issue...so he hasn't yet asked her father for her hand. When she gets a note from Niall to meet him she quickly goes to the meeting. There he tells her that he killed a man in a dual and has to leave immediately. Niall ask that Brilliana comes with him and they can marry in Spain. But Brilliana doesn't want to leave her sick mother nor is she sure he will actually marry her because he isn't trusting her enough to tell her why he dueled. So at first she tells him no but then goes on to say that she will plan on getting things in order and meet him later once he settles. They are to communicate through his father. Now several years later there are angry feelings between the two because the other thinks that the other person let them down. But they are forced to work together so that they both can what each thinks they want.
I have enjoyed this series and this book just added to the entertainment of this series.

Review: The Pleasures of Passion by Sabrina Jeffries
The Pleasures of Passion - Sabrina Jeffries

4.25 stars

There’s nothing I love more than a well-written reunion romance, and with The Pleasures of Passion Sabrina Jeffries has delivered an excellent one. Niall and Brilliana’s story is lively, engaging, passionate, and so addictive that I read it in one sitting.

At seventeen and twenty-three respectively, Brilliana and Niall were hopeful, naïve, and in love. But when Niall was forced to flee England after a duel, Brilliana refused to run away with him. It’s easy to see why the two of them were first torn apart: they were young, unprepared for what happened, and easily manipulated by those they trusted. Seven years later, Niall has been pardoned and is allowed to return to England while Brilliana is a widow determined to build a good life for her son. Sparks flew between them when they met again for the first time in the previous Sinful Suitors book, The Danger of Desire, but with so much hurt and misunderstanding between them, both are content to merely avoid one another. Fate has different plans for them. Both of them are forced to work together to try and learn if Brilliana’s father is involved in a counterfeiting scheme, and close quarters mean old feelings are sure to surface. Normally I’m not a fan of big misunderstandings or secrets, but surprisingly it didn’t bother me in The Pleasures of Passion. Even though I wanted Niall and Brilliana to open up right away, it was logical why they had trouble trusting one another and why they kept their secrets close to their hearts.

As individuals, Brilliana and Niall are likeable characters; they’re smart, loyal, have good hearts, and they care deeply for their loved ones. As a couple, their chemistry is fantastic. It’s clear that – old wounds aside – the two of them have never stopped loving each other. Because of this, there’s emotion running through every scene, making the pages fairly crackle with energy. I couldn’t put The Pleasures of Passion down because I wanted to see them find the happily ever after that was so long overdue for them. Add in a web of lies and deception the two of them must untangle in order to crack a counterfeiting case, and it’s easy to see why there’s never a dull moment in this book. I absolutely adored Niall and Brilliana’s story and I cannot wait to see what Ms. Jeffries has in store for the intriguing spymaster Baron Fulkham in the next Sinful Suitors book!

The Danger of Desire
The Danger of Desire (The Sinful Suitors Book 3) - Sabrina Jeffries

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

The Danger of Desire is book 3 of Sabrina Jeffries’s Sinful Suitors series. Can’t say I was too impressed with this one. This series, as a whole, has been a downer for me, both story and character-wise. But I am giving it a try, hoping that things will improve. *sigh*

I wasn’t surprised to find that The Sinful Suitors is connected to The Duke’s Men. Most of SJ’s series are interlinked thru characters; secondary characters of one series having their own books in a new one. I don’t think you must read The Duke’s Men to enjoy Sinful Suitors, however, the characters have links to the previous series so things may make more sense if you have already read the former.

The first book of the series, The Art of Sinning, is the story of a character appeared shortly in The Duke’s Men series; an American artist named Jeremy Keane. He was the cousin of one of the central characters there. I never thought him important enough to have his own book so this was a surprise! The heroine, Yvette, was never introduced before. Keane was running from a sad secret of his past eschewing his own responsibilities back in America, and his artistic whimsies gave him the perfect escape route to do so. He travelled extensively for the sake of his vocation and their vast family run empire is now managed by his elder sister Amanda. When Keane arrived in England, he was set to have a title from one of his English relatives as the next living male heir. However, due to some twists and turns and Keane’s own disinclination to take on added responsibilities makes him decline this in the end.
