Review of The Pleasures of Passion by Sabrina Jeffries


This is the sixth story in The Sinful Suitors Series,  four full length novels and two novellas.  I have read them all and recommend them highly.  

This story is about Niall Lindsey The Earl of Margrave and Brilliana Trevor.  Young and in love they thought nothing could come between them.  Then Niall is forced to fight a duel to protect his sister and is exiled to the Continent.  Briliana is devastated but she cannot go with him because if she left there would be no one to take care of her ill mother.  

Seven years later Niall is back in England given a full pardon and is determined to avoid Brilliana.  She is now a widow with a young son.  He doesn't understand why she married another man just a few months after he left England.  She betrayed their love and he cannot forgive her.

Brilliana was broken hearted when Niall left London, but she was only 17 years old. When pressured to marry another man to rescue her Mother and Father from Debtor's prison she relents and marries. But she has never stopped loving Niall and her marriage was a mistake from the beginning. The only good that came out of her marriage was her son Silas.  Now Niall is back in England and she is desperate to avoid him.  She cannot go through that kind of heartache again.

This is a tale of young love, betrayal and redemption.  Niall and Brilliana have secrets that have to come out if they have any chance of a happy ending.  Niall is ready but Brilliana is not so sure.  She cannot trust her judgement anymore when it comes to men and what her heart feels.  Add in a family mystery that includes illegal activities.

This book will surprise and delight.  Sabrina is a truly talented romance author who writes wonderful characters and surprising plots that are of the highest standards in Historical Romance. Her stories are wonderfully original.  Witty dialogue, laugh out loud moments make her books must reads.  I have been reading her stories since her first book was published "A Dangerous Love" which made me a lifelong fan.  I will buy, read and keep her books, including her all of the Deborah Martin novels.
