The Passion Of A Marquess by Linda Rae Sande is a historical romance set in early nineteenth century England. After several seasons without a proposal, Lady Samantha Fitzsimmons is almost on the shelf. She embarks on a tour of Italy, hoping that she will catch the eye of a foreign noble. Ethan Range, Marquess of Plymouth, is on a mission to save his mines, but is instead swept off the deck of a ship during a violent storm, plunging into the sea with Lady Samantha Fitzsimmons, no less. Sent adrift by the waves, they land on a deserted island. Chemistry sparks and soon the marooned couple finds themselves in a sizzling hot affair. In the Marquess’ arms, Lady Samantha knows unprecedented passion. But a misunderstanding sends Ethan running to his dreary Yorkshire castle. Will he stay there when he learns that the love of his life is about to be claimed by another?
The Passion Of A Marquess has two lovely side stories that are as interesting as the main storyline. The secondary characters are as important as the main couple and make for many hilarious situations. It is funny and filled with delightful romantic scenes. Linda Rae Sande’s heroine has an interesting mix of innocence and independence that drives the story. There is a hint of mystery as the heroine tries to work out who she truly is and work out her future. There is no boring moment in this book and lots of sexy scenes between the hero and heroine.
