    After her true loves died, Amelia settles for marrying her frien

    After her true loves died, Amelia settles for marrying her friend the Earl of Ware. During a dance, she feels that she is being watched and followed. However, her first instinct is not to flee but to find out who this stranger is behind the mask. The masked man turn out to be the same man Amelia thought dead. The man that haunts her dreams, Colin.

    I liked Amelia's strong, independent side, it was this aspect of her personality that helped me connect to her. Because even after all the things she has been through she's still her own person. I loved Colin. He has been enamored with Amelia ever since he saved her life and returned to be with her only to find other obstacles in his way. But he continues with his plan of keeping her safe and then making her his. I especially enjoyed the Earl's attitude towards his relationship with Amelia. He knew she didn't love him, but he didn't care but assured her nonetheless that she would enjoy sex with him. And anyway, he was getting his from his mistress, so all was good on that account.

    The author, Sylvia Day, does a great job of keeping the reader engaged in the story by adding twist and turns into this emotionally charged tale. This in turn helped me understand where each character was coming from in this love triangle between Colin, Amelia and the Earl. From the betrayal Amelia felt to Colin's need to make things right with Amelia, Sylvia Day managed to bring a great range of emotions to the page.

    Although A Passion for Him is the third book in the Georgian series, it could be read as a stand alone. This is the first book by Sylvia Day that I have read, but I'm fairly sure that it won't be the last. I enjoyed the chemistry between the characters, the dialogue and the overall story. I'm usually not a fan of historical fiction but the author managed to keep me entertained and my attention focused on the outcome of the story so kudos to her.

    I received this title from Kensington Books through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.
