BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Knight of Passion by Margaret Mallory (Book Review 2010-91)

Product Description

HOW CAN THIS PASSIONATE KNIGHT...
Renowned beauty Lady Linnet is torn between two desires: revenge on those who destroyed her family or marriage to her childhood sweetheart Sir James Rayburn. One fateful night, she makes a misguided choice: she sacrifices Jamie's love for a chance at vengeance.

TRUST A BEAUTY WITH A PAST?
Jamie Rayburn returns to England in search of a virtuous wife-only to find the lovely Linnet as bewitching as ever. Their reckless affair ignites anew, even hotter than before, although Jamie vows to never again trust her with his heart. Then just as Linnet begins to make amends, she's tempted by one last opportunity to settle old scores. But a final retribution could cost her Jamie's love - this time forever.

About the Author

Margaret Mallory surprised her friends and family by abandoning her legal career to spend her days writing stories of romance and adventure. Finally, she can satisfy her passion for justice by writing stories that punish the bad and reward the worthy--after a struggle, of course. She grew up in Northern Michigan and now lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband, two children, fierce cat and silly dog.

LOVED IT

What can I say?  This book is a gem!    The characters jump off the page, there is intrigue, paranormal elements, witty dialogue, do I need to continue?   Of course!  I am really getting back into romance novels and I wish there was a better term to describe them since I don't think the term really suffices.  Knight of Passion is my first book by Margaret Mallory and I am incredibly impressed.  I am going to go have to get the other two books in this series.  I can only imagine that the debut of this series is equally as wonderful as this one.
This book works on so many levels:  excellent plot that keeps you guessing until the end with several twists and turns and believable characters that make the plot come alive.  You can just feel the fabric that Linnet markets and feel every emotion that she has.  Jamie is the perfect foil for Linnet and I now wish that I had started at the beginning of this series, but there was no problem in getting involved and caring for these characters. YAY!!

  7. Thanks for the wonderful review, Mary! After working away for months alone on my laptop, it is just lovely to read an enthusiastic review. I do hope you go back and read the other 2 in the series. ;)

    Someone asked about my 2 years in Africa. My dad was an aggie & worked for USAID training guys over there to do what county extension agents do here for farmers. I was in 7th & 8th grades & had to go to boarding school in the country.

    Good luck to the commenters!
