This novella was previously released under the title of "His Perfect Passion", in case you already bought that one. If you've read the Blackstone books by this author, you'll recognize the setting. It seems this manor house has a history of sheltering passionate lovers who like a little kink.
It's on the Somerset coast & in 1837 was the ancestral home of Darius Rourke, a rich handsome man recently returned to England. He's back to finally claim Marianne, the beautiful woman he's never been able to forget. She's all grown up now & with her father gambling/drinking away her future, he sees a way to make her his.
Marianne is properly demure as befits the time. She also has a dark secret that makes her feel unworthy of being anyone's wife. But Darius is a man used to getting what he wants.
This is a quick, easy read where the ending is never really in doubt. There is a sweetness to balance the VERY mild D/s element between our couple as the story follows the first year of their relationship. Darius is appropriately hunky, more than a tad possessive & bewitched. And with a little instruction, Marianne goes from blushing virgin to one very satisfied woman.
It's sexy, pure escapism as one would expect from this author, this time with a historical twist. ( )

Erotic, unrelenting, passionate, and unforgettable.

Those are but a few words to describe this novella by Raine Miller. let's face it, it has been years since I have read historical romances. After reading my fill of Victoria Holt, I moved away from the genre because I wanted a taste of modern life. I will have to reconsider this decision after reading Raine Miller's Passion.

There was nothing about this novella that is not relevant today. I would strongly advice readers to make this part of your reading as you pick up the latest in The Blackstone Affair Series - Rare and Precious Things.
Although not directly involved or needed in order to read Rare and Precious Things, it definitely adds to the experience and will make your enjoyment two-fold.

In Passion, we find Marianne agreeing to marry Darius to save her father from prison. Darius has been in love with her for years; just waiting for her to grow up to make his move. Little they know to what extent this marriage would consume them both.

I will be on the lookout for more historical romances of this caliber in the future. I am amazed at what I have been missing! ( )

HIS PERFECT PASSION by Raine Miller is an exciting Erotic Historical Romance. From the very first page I was captured by Darius Rourke,a passionate hero who just so happened to desire Marianne for a very long time. I was also captured by Marianne's determination to save her family at a possible cost to heart and herself. When Marianne's family falls on hard times,Darius makes his move and offers her a proposition she can't refuse in order to save her family. Filled with passion,secrets,submission,with light BDSM and love. But can or will Darius gain Marianne's love,that is the question and one he is desperate to gain. A quick,sexy,fast paced story that will have you sweating uncontrollably. If you enjoy hot,sexy,erotic romance,with a bit of BDSM, Dominance and submission than you are sure to enjoy "His Perfect Passion". Received for an honest review from the author.

RATING: 4.5

HEAT RATING:EXTREMELY SCORCHING:
Frequent love scenes are extremely explicit,using graphic and direct language. May contain subject matter some readers may consider objectionable.(No holds bar,BDSM, D/s, homoerotic sex acts,and/or group sex)
