It’s I LOVE TO READ MONTH, and Valentine’s Day is coming up, so maybe it’s time to feature something from the Romance Genre. One of our romance readers has enjoyed The Secret Passion of Simon Blackwell by Samantha James.
Due to a cruel twist of fate, Simon Blackwell vows to shut himself off from the world and deny his emotions and desires forever. One day, in a moment of weakness, he gives in and shares a passionate kiss with Annabel McBride. Annabel’s reputation is compromised and the two are married. But – this is a marriage in name only and Simon intends to eventually divorce Annabel. The fiery Annabel eventually melts his cold heart and Simon realizes that this is a second chance at love, happiness and family.
This Victorian romance is well paced, well written, and features lovable lead characters. A great suggestion for Valentines or any cold winter day.
