    WoW!

    The romance between Passion and Mark is touching and heart wrenching and with the love scenes being over the top steamy, it was a wonderful book!

    Wonderful, endearing book. Loved it!

    Passion by Lisa Valdez came out in 2005, and 2 years ago I went looking for it after I read several reviews that this book was a classic and had won awards. At that time, it was no where to be found, but recently I ordered it online when her second book came out. Passion is a wonderful, endearing book and I loved it! Very few romance books will make me cry so much that tears are streaming down and I can't read because my eyes are so watery, but this book curled around my heart and it is a book I will re-read again.

    It begins in a very heated meeting between the two characters and I didn't know it then, but their sexual connection was going to take a back seat to the connection between their hearts and their courages spirits. I cried when Mark was brave enough to tell Passion he loved her. After you know about his history, you will understand what a courages step it was for him to tell her he loved her. At first, I thought this was the worse time for him to say anything, but after they talk, it became the only thing that kept them from falling apart due to the awful circumstances around them.

    There were many favorite scenes written so well by the author, and one of them is the "hair pin" scene. I won't give it away, but it was so heart wrenching for me that I was sobbing and reading.

    As the plot unvailed, I could not think how everything would be resolved and a happy ending was to occur! But the wonderful author gave us the solution and all seemed reasonable and not contrived.
    I highly recommend this book! It is a keeper!

    WOWEE!!!

    This is THE STEAMIEST novel I have EVER read. I picked up this book because of the reviews and I was not disappointed. I had read reviews on Nicole Jordan books but even though there were steamy scenes the plot themselves were so boring that after reading two of her novels I doubt I'll read another. But LV's Passion was great because there was a real story behind all the heavy panting and trust me when I say HEAVY!! There was a little too much 'I love yous' toward the end but other than that AWESOME BOOK! Can't wait to read the story on Patience - I'll be ordering that today:0'

    A reviewer

    Very well written, nicely paced, and pulls you into the action from the first page. Not for the timid, there is graphic language almost immediately, but in this novel's context it works perfectly. While there is a certain element of submission that is not usually found in current romance novels, the heroine is still very strong, and that's what makes the book. I loved it and can't wait for the next two novels in the series--when are they coming out??

    Erotic Victorian romance

    Passion has to be the hottest book to hit bookshelves in a long time. Lisa Valdez has surpassed Cheryl Holt in eroticism. It's not every body's cup of tea. It's highly erotic. I can't wait for Patience to come out.

    It's a keeper!

    The book started off so good straight from the start since the first time the heroes met as strangers they had sex. If executely correctly, it can be a very good thing to get sex out of the way from the get-go and this is one of those books were it was well done. I felt that the heroes really loved each other and i love how the book ended. There really wasnt much character development as I felt the characters stay true to what they believe in from the start. The only change I saw was in how Mark was willing to marry Charlotte anyway due to his love for Passion, something he wouldnt have done before. But there was real emotional depth! No denying that these two people loved each other.
    There was some things I didnt like, mainly the size of his penis. I felt it was unrealistic to be that large and not scare the poor girl! Also annoyed that they were willing to sacrifice their happiness but i knew in the end it would work out (SPOILER: still annoyed though that Passion didnt want to tell him about her pregnancy) .
    Overall very good book, I loved it and am looking foward to reading the next book in this series. Hope that in the next book I can found out more about John and Charlotte, two secondary characters that really caught my interest. 4.5 stars for "Passion."

    Wonderful Read, Hope she writes more of this!!!

    Having been an avid romance reader since the age of fifteen, I've seen it all:the good, the bad & the ugly! This book 'Passion' I would put in a new category : the great! I like my love stories simple: they should be about romance (strictly romance, so no phoney spies or boring highwaymen(oh! please grow up!)), love, broken hearts. The main characters in the story must be engaging and likeable and 'no frigid' Barbara Cartland plots where Boy meets Girl at p. 132 of a 200pp novel. THis story is honest, true to the point, hot (oh,yes!) but very emotional...You rant and rave at their 'bullheadedness'(Passion & Mark) but you can't help but feel for them cos they're not only likeable but lovable as well. I think that Ms Valdez is a dream weaver...to create such emotion from a fairly simple and unoriginal story line is a feat. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE SEQUEL 'PATIENCE'!!! So yes, 2 thumbs up for Lisa Valdez...

    Very hot AND emotional

    Compared to some romance readers, I`m quite young (19) but I read over 200 novels and there is no book I loved (and still love) more than PASSION. This book is very hot in the first part of it but in the second part towards the end it becomes so emotional like no other book I know. Usually, a hot book is just a series of encounters with no plot. In PASSION we don`t find an action plot like in most books but we do find a plot about development of characters, a plot about desperation, about inner conflicts and about soul-damaged characters. There are so many great sentences that are very profound and they really touched me (they will always stay in my mind). I don`t like it when someone says about a book that it was fun, because that means to me that the person found the book entertaining and she/he will forget it soon. However, PASSION isn`t fun in sense of being here just to entertain. Give this author and this book a chance and I`m sure that once you read it, you won`t be able to get it out of your head. I highly recommend you this book if you want an exceptional read because you get so much more than you pay for.
