 Is their passion strong enough to break her chains?

Andalucía Spain, 1489: Innocent Beatriz is desperate to escape the threat of a miserable marriage to a cruel Marquis. Forced into the betrothal by her ruthless merchant papá, her only hope is to conceal her identity and become a servant in a nearby castle—a life drastically different from her comfortable upbringing.

Tomás doesn’t know what to make of his well-spoken new servant girl. Her beauty and charm captivates the military hero; her mysterious nature intrigues him. And the desire she ignites burns brighter with each glance, as does his longing to claim her for his own.

Beatriz can’t resist Tomás’ passion nor deny the heat of her own. But neither the lush countryside nor the walls of the opulent Moorish castle can entirely protect her—and if he were to discover her secret, she could be torn away from him forever. Yet how can she sustain his love if she’s living a lie?

Passionate Pursuit (Dangerous Desires #3)She was a surprise to her new master. Tomas, master of the house, war hero and very single man was captivated by the beautiful servant girl with the bearing, training and intelligence of one far above her station. Beatriz refused to speak of her past, but the secrets she held close were dark and dangerous.

Their mutual passion ignites a fiery affair where Tomas realizes he may have met his match, a goddess with the sexual appetites of a man and the power to bring him to his knees. But one’s station in life is not to be crossed, what would this feisty servant know of conduct in the higher circles? The gossip mongers would have her for lunch and any hope of gaining their respect would be almost impossible.

It is only when faced with her past and her dreadful secrets that Tomas knows he will fight to the death for the woman he wants to wed.

Treachery, deceit, danger and a monster beyond measure will haunt their happiness and he must be stopped. Will he impart even more lies to save his slithery hide?

Passionate Pursuit by Tina Donahue is a tale of love, the heat of erotic passion and two lovers who have found their perfect match in a time when wealth, titles and power were the main criteria for marriage. Definitely sizzling scenes pepper this tale along with family loyalty and the hope for finding a new life. An adult read for those who like caring men and strong women who seem to be far ahead of their times in sexual freedom.

I received an ARC edition from Lyrical Press in exchange for my honest review.
