"If one is not marrying for love, one may as well marry
for something else. My future countess has to be sufficiently
docile and endowed with at least passable grace of form, deportment
has made Gyles Rawlings a man determined to control his destiny.
He has decided to wed a well-bred lady who will dutifully
bear him sons, yet turn a blind eye while he takes his pleasure
elsewhere. By all good accounts, Francesca will fit his bill.
As for the "elsewhere," he's recently encountered
a beautiful, brazen siren who will make a fine mistress, one
with a fiery nature to match his own.
at the altar, Gyles discovers his bride is the bold enchantress
who has inspired his deepest fantasies. Finding passion and
love in the same woman has long been a secret fear. But as
his world is rocked on its axis, Gyles becomes obsessed with
possessing the one thing he'd thought he would never want...
his wife's heart.

"Appealing characters and red-hot chemistry breathe new
life into a familiar story line. Laurens's twist on the bride-switch,
arranged marriage formula is fun, spicy and sure to please."
STARS & A TOP PICK!! Laurens gifts readers with a highly
sensual romance and wonderful storytelling. Add a hint of
danger and sizzling passion, and readers are in for one wild
ride--air conditioning required!"
Kathe Robin, Romantic Times
"How delightful that the Cynster Saga didn't end with
the brothers and cousins. I know I wasn't the only one who
let out a whoop of joy when Devil made Chillingworth an honorary
Cynster. His story is a very worthy chapter in the ongoing
story of the Cynster family."
Sue Burke, Reviewer, The Old Book Barn Gazette
ABOUT PASSION is a remarkable example of Stephanie Laurens
at her absolute best."
