The Passion by Nicole Jordan

To escape marriage to a despised man twice her age, Lady Aurora Demming makes a scandalous arrangement with Nicholas Sabine, a dangerously handsome American facing execution for murder and piracy. She agrees to become his wife for one day . . . and one glorious, intoxicating night. Widowed, Aurora returns to London society with Nicholas's orphaned sister at her side to face a lifetime without love—until her "dead" husband returns, insisting that she honor their vows and haunting her dreams with promises of forbidden desire. . . .

Passion was the first book by Nicole Jordan that I read, and I loved it so much that since then I have read all of the books in this series. They are all great. She is definitively one of my favorite authors.
Since the very beginning the book sizzles with passion. The fist time they made love was so beautiful and so charged with emotions. The fact he was sentenced to die the next morning, was what held me enthralled. The next morning when Aurora tries to save him and is told that the sentence is being carried out and Nick is already dead, I actually cried! Even though I knew he must had somehow escaped or there wouldn't be a story to tell, the thought of him dying was enough to make me weep.
Nick is an incredible character. He is sensual, corageous, passionate, confident and so masculine. There was not a moment in this book when I found fault with the way he acts (unlike other heroes that at the beginnig are real jerks and it is not until later that they reform). He is not the kind of man that tries to deny his need for the woman he loves, he knows what he wants and he is determined to get it, even if he has to risk his life. His relentless pursuit of Aurora made me fall in love with him, and the intense chemistry beween them keeps the love scenes sizzling hot. Every time they meet is intense, passionate, carnal and erotic and I would be hard pressed to choose one favorite scene from this book. There are so many!
An incredible book. I have read it twice and from time to time, I like to re-read my favorite scenes. An all time favorite.

Miss Jordan has once again captured the heart of her readers with her new book, The Passion. From the get-go I was caught by the eroticly spun tale of romance and adventure. You could just feel the emotions flowing from the pages; Aurora's pain, her frustration, and the passion towards Nicholas that she denies. Just as great as the previous book, The Seduction, I recommend to all those who are interested in a great read. Once you pick it up you won't put it down! I can't wait for her next book, The Enchantment!

In 1813 in St. Kitts, British West Indies, English visitor Lady Aurora Demming objects to the military's treatment of condemned prisoner Nicholas Sabine. The English know him as the pirate Captain Saber while the Americans consider the merchant fleet owner a privateer.

Nicholas worries about what will happen to his half-sister Raven. He persuades Aurora to marry him, consummate their vows, and serve as Raven's guardian as the latter makes her London debut. With the urging of her cousin and his wife, Aurora agrees to this one-day marriage of convenience as opposed to marrying her father's choice of spouse, the arrogant, odious Duke of Halford. However, neither Nicholas nor Aurora expected him to survive the gallows and come to England to claim his bride.

With over a dozen best-selling historical romances, readers know Nicole Jordan is a sure winner for readers who like their romances a little spicy. THE PASSION is a seductive tale that contains all the fire and conflict the audience expects from a novel written by this talented author. The story line centers on two strong charcaters struggling between their love for one another and the War of 1812 interfering with their relationship. Ms. Jordan has written one of the best romances of her career.
