Meet the unforgettable men of London’s most notorious tavern, The Wicked Duke. Seductively handsome, with charm and wit to spare, one night with these rakes and rogues will never be enough…

Lifelong romantic Thaddeus Middleton is on the hunt for a wife. He hopes to find a woman more attracted to him than to money. Instead, he finds himself drawn to a spitfire who isn’t interested in him at all! At least, that’s what she says when she’s not kissing him beneath the stars…

Miss Priscilla Weatherby will inherit a fortune… provided she remains unwed and scandal-free. Easy enough, until she meets a man more dangerous than haughty lords and heartless rakes. Thad is a sweet, sexy delight, whose passionate embrace will ruin everything—including her! She’ll sacrifice anything for independence. Even love.

My Rating:  4.5 stars

I will freely admit that I fall just a touch in love with every hero in the stories that I’ve enjoyed over the years.  I flat out tumbled in love with Thad.  He is a romantic who simply wants to find his one true love.  He is kind, even to small helpless animals, a gentleman in every sense of the word and simply a gentle giant of a man with a heart that could so easily be broken.

Priscilla is an independent lady with a grand plan, to remain unwed, avoid scandal at all cost and never fall into the trap of love for everything she holds dear is on the line should she stumble one little bit.  She has the chance for complete independence, to travel on adventures beyond her wildest imagination — but should she be tempted to fall in love and marry she will lose all that she has worked toward.  Love.  Independence.  The two become a war in her heart and mind when she encounters Thad.  Now she has to make a choice or take the chance of losing the one man who would fulfill all her dreams and beyond.

ONE NIGHT OF PASSION has to be my favorite Regency Romance of 2019 (so far).  This is pure romance, decisions that will change futures and a love that is worth the risk.  I’m not going to spoil it for you – but, if you love a romance that will touch your heart and linger in your mind long after the final page then you need to pick up this book right now.  I’ve enjoyed this entire series, and expect to continue doing so – but Thad and Priscilla are a very special couple and I hope you’ll want to discover their story for yourself.
