Knight of Passion is a wonderful historical romance. Lady Linnet is not your typical heroine. She takes control of her fate and take it where she wanted it to go. If she happens to break some hearts along the way, then it’s just casualty of war. Jamie Rayburn’s heart is one of those she broke. Unfortunately for Jamie, he genuinely loves her.

Lady Linnet might come off as callous sometimes, but she cares. She’s a strong lady for her times. When her father arranges a marriage for her to a loathsome man, she took care that it never happens. Now, she has another chance with Jamie. But it looks like she might mess that up, too.

I have a great time reading this book. I took it everywhere with me…especially to waiting rooms at the pool, karate class and other kid’s activities.

About the book:

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.

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.


I saw this building when I was leaving downtown area last Sunday. I think this was a door of a Baptist Church.

Thank you for your comments on my panic. We’re waiting for Opthalmologist consult on my daughter, but it seems like it’s nothing quite scary. She seem to be doing fine, she skated for 4 hours on Sunday. I spent almost all day Monday sleeping.

Winners, please contact me with your address and the book title you won. Also, if you have won this book from another site (publisher’s rule), let me know so I may pick alternate winner.

My Take:
On the night before her wedding to an odious man, Lady Kate steal into the night and by accident met William in the stable. She’s headstrong and brave, and the least this knight could do was go with her for a ride to make sure she’s safe.

Years later, William defeated and killed a treator and travelled to secure that traitor’s land. Kate and William met again. But Kate does not know who William is. Kate’s late husband abused her physically, so she’s slow to trust. William, who recognized her right away is also suspiciouis why a wife would betray her husband.

This book is a satisfying journey into love, and marriage. It makes me realized how marriage is a careful dance of trust, giving, and honesty. A good marriage makes all these things so easy. Margaret Mallory’s first book is poignant and good to read. She reminds me of Lorraine Heath’s stories. I feel the heroine’s emotions. A great book will do this, and this one’s no exception.

Warning: You can’t start this book and not finish it. The story is that compelling. I had to turn my room and house upside down every time I lost track of this book. I just love it!

About the author: (from Hachette site)

MARGARET MALLORY recently surprised her friends and family by abandoning her legal career-and her steady job-to write tales of romance and adventure. At long last, she can satisfy her passion for justice by punishing the bad and rewarding the worthy-in the pages of her novels, of course. She lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband and their two college-age children. KNIGHT OF DESIRE is her first book so she would dearly love to hear from readers.
