Overview

[Siren Classic: Erotic Historical Romance, light BDSM] Darius Rourke has long desired the beautiful and mysterious Marianne, seizing the opportunity to claim her when her family falls on hard times. Darius intuitively understands Marianne's need for direction and is willing to do anything to be the one to give it to her. What he doesn't know is that submission is security for Marianne, helping her to cope with a sin from her past. The wedding night confirms his virgin bride is the passionate woman Darius always dreamed she would be, but the more entangled they become, the harder it is for Darius to play the role of 'master,' for ultimately it will never give him that which he wants most of all-Marianne's love. A confrontation is due for Darius and Marianne who must both face the fears and painful secrets threatening to destroy their fragile love, their future together, and the perfect passion they both crave. ** A Siren Erotic Romance

His Perfect Passion 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 36 reviews.

Don't waste your time or money. I thoroughly enjoyed "Naked" and was hoping for another good story, but this was just a long, boring story about a man who obviously needed counseling for his obsession. I thought the female lead was extremely weak and the entire plot unrealistic. Don't waste your time or money.

At 1st i had my doubts about the depth of this story. The story at 1st the story line seemed weak but the sexual encounters were strong and very well written. Erotic and yet tasteful in their description. As the story went along i felt closer and closer to each character. Darius was truely spectacular. Gentle and dark at the same time. I loved how this story came to it's end. Now i can go to sleep with a smile and a blush on my face. Great read. Worth the money. Will deffinitly check out more by this author.

Woo-wee was this a spicy historical romance! The emotional connection is just as strong as the physical one in this story and I highly recommend reading it.

Bartender Rating: Top Shelf This and more reviews at The Book Bar.co This is a great short read for those who want to see if Historical Romance or even light Erotica/BDSM is something they would like.  Try it!  The hero, Darius Rourke is commanding, but like all Doms, he needs a woman to fulfill his desires.  Not just any woman either; he needs the one he's longed for, tried to forget, and will do what he has to, to make the lovely Marianne his.  Only Darius can't be happy unless the gentle Marianne is happy.  We don't know why Marianne is unhappy, only that she can't forget a horrible event from her past.  She has given up the responsibility to make choices and is more comfortable when Darius tells her what to do, making her the perfect Submissive.   She's a distraught character but not weak.  She is fully aware of Darius's wants and needs and how she can support him with his duties as a landowner.  However, Darius needs to find out why Marianne has nightmares and calls out the name "Jonathan". They both need direction, but Darius can't demand the one thing he wants to hear from Marianne, that she loves him. I read this book so fast I didn't think to highlight any passages or quotes, but I did enjoy it and I love how Raine Miller can take you back hundreds of years to experience daily life, social mores and etiquette.  The historical romances by Raine Miller, such as His Perfect Passion and The Undoing of a Libertine, are connected to each other and The Blackstone Affair books, which take place in modern time.  So if you've read The Blackstone Affair books first, some names may seem familiar.  If you read the historical romance books first, then you will see the characters pop-up again in The Blackstone Affair.  Truly, a wonderful connection with history.

I just needed a book to relax and enjoy, and when I'm in that mood, I love reading a love story! I decided to choose HIS PERFECT PASSION by Raine Miller. She is the author of the popular Blackstone Affair series and the Undoing of a Libertine! She has done it again, I was not disappointed! I am so glad to have read this erotic historical romance. I was charmed by her two characters Darius, a passionate man and Marianne, a beautiful mysterious woman. This story is filled with love and passion, a little bit of bdsm is included, but the scenes are well written by Ms. Miller. A beautiful romance emotionally rich with her characters.I love this author's style of writing. Lots of beautiful emotions that gets you pulled into her story. Sexual chemistry between Darius and Marianne. Ms. Miller is truly a high quality writer for erotic romance as I love them, they are always written with finesse! I highly recommend HIS PERFECT PASSION without hesitation! I will definitely be reading more books written by Raine Miller, she is fabulous!

I am a huge fan of Raine's Blackstone Affair series, but had never read any of these older period pieces by Raine or other authors. I was concerned that it would be boring, slow or not easy to follow, but I was completely wrong. I strongly suggest this book for anyone who has read the Blackstone Affair, especially Eyes Wide Open (the third in the series) since Darius and Marianne (the lead characters in His Perfect Passion) are tied to that book. I suggest reading the Blackstone Affair first though, then this book followed by The Undoing of the Libertine. I love how all her books tie into each other and give you in detail information about the characters. Great job and great book.

Great book. I've got to say the loves scenes in this book was as graphic and well written as 50 shades of grey book.  Very passionate and steamy. Great author!
