Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game; flirting, dancing and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when and who she’s supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family, a home of her own, and a place to belong. But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy begins to wonder if she can indeed have it all.

But Lord Sussex is not the man the London ton has come to admire. And Lucy has some ghosts of her own, as well. Thus, when a blackmail scheme turns to threats of danger, the newfound peace of the Sussex marriage is cast upon the rocks. Passion has a price, Lucy learns. And not all ghosts stay buried.

Why Pride and Passion?

This is such a sensual romantic tale with some gothic hints and paranormal elements a bit as well. Great thrilling moments and very sexy!! But the cover is GORGEOUS! I love this pose and how he is holding her against the wall.

About Charlotte Featherstone

Charlotte is an erotic-romance writer who pens sexy and sensual tales for Harlequin SPICE. Charlotte loves learning about different cultures, and frequently likes to add exotic locales in her stories, using her research as "armchair" vacations.

Amongst her vices are good chocolate, her husband's coffee, her DVD of North and South with the ultrayummy Richard Armitage, and a really good book with a dark, brooding alpha male and hot love scenes! She also has a tendency to develop terribly naughty crushes on her heroes, much to her husband's chagrin!

Charlotte loves the classics—Austen, the Brontës and Dickens. In romance, she devours anything written by Lisa Kleypas and J.R. Ward—gotta love Phury, Rhage and V!

She's an avid music lover and listens to anything from Beethoven to Zeppelin. She also has a very large collection of high heels, evening bags and glitzy costume jewelry, although she can mostly be found wearing sweatpants and T-shirts while toting around a coffee mug!

Charlotte lives in Ontario, Canada, with her husband and daughter and very ill-behaved golden retriever. Please feel free to drop Charlotte a line at her Web site. She always loves to hear from her readers.
