The real emotion that Clara showed for the loss of her son resonated more strong than the romance between Sebastian and Clara...Finally, the issue of Sebastian’s mother comes into play and while I appreciate the thematic issues of parenthood from Rushton to Sebastian and Clara to her son, I felt the ending was rather hamfisted.

Synopsis

PRELUDE TO A KISS

A brilliant pianist and notorious rake, Sebastian Hall indulges his passion for music and women with equal aplomb. But now that his elder brother has married, his father insists he pursue a more respectable path and find a suitable wife.

MUSIC TO HER EARS

As a girl, Clara Whitmore quietly loved her piano teacher from afar. Yet her youthful crush cannot compare to the powerful desire she feels when she unexpectedly meets Sebastian again. Perhaps the man who once dominated her dreams could be the husband she has hoped for--and save her from the fate she most fears...

LOVE STRIKES A CHORD

Risking scandal, ruin, and their own reputations, Sebastian and Clara enter into a marriage of convenience. But the pair soon discovers that their undeniable attraction is anything but convenient. Swept up in a crescendo of desire, Sebastian and Clara take each other to new heights of ecstasy--until secrets from the past threaten to doom the duet forever. Now Sebastian will have to change his tune-and prove his love is true.

Reviewed by Caz Owens on Oct 04 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Passion for Pleasure and would certainly consider reading more by this author. The story is well-paced and unusual for the genre; and the romance, while it does develop quickly, feels genuine and surprisingly unhurried.
