Ah, The Power the Passion What can I say DIt s a bodice ripper in every sense of the word The plot is wall to wall WTFery the Dude Author style comes through loud clear, particularly in terms of the sexy times Speaking of whichthere are lots of those While not enough to label the book erotica per se, the lusty scenes are matter of fact lack flowery euphemisms But is it a cheesy book No It s violent It s gritty It s un PC It s a torrid, improbable, irreverent novel about the heroine s adventures across Restoration era Europe, I was hooked from beginning to end.The MC is Lorna MacMahon In the first few pages she s the doted upon daughter of a Maryland landowner fruit of an exiled branch of Irish aristocracy By the end of the second chapter, her family is murdered she s been forced into marriage with the same villain, who proceeds to rape her repeatedly lock her in his ship for a triumphant return to Ireland She manages to escape beg sanctuary, but the marriage can t be annulled Instead she s rescued by a Swedish soldier, Lennart, who happened to meet her family a few days earlier Lennart kills the murderer in a duel allows Lorna to seduce him later that night But her benefactors won t let them marry he s Lutheran, oh noes pack Lorna off to England, there to claim her inheritance from King William Queen Mary.By now Lorna has become a rich widow with a baby daughter Kathleen Still pining for Lennart, she has no idea that they ve been sabotaged by William Mary, who see a beautiful heiress as bargaining chip for future alliances After languishing at court for several years, our heroine is sold to Peter the Tsar through a sham marriage to his ambiguously gay lackey Zoinks Suddenly Lorna is trying to survive ecstatic orgasms from Peter s masterly lovemaking, the whims of a mad Tsar s insanity, the treachery of an unpleasant royal entourage She manages to spend several years in Russia she s 32 by the end of the book during which she s had threesomes with Peter Catherine, coaxed her husband into a sex life, been mauled, manhandled, threatened with torture, finally popped out a son, whom she uses as pawn for her Kathleen s survival Sounds cruel, yes But totally understandable under the circumstances And there it is As a whole, this was a great read Despite some awkward passages time jumps, the historical backdrop was strong throughout So much WTFery unashamed female sexuality made a delightfully wacky time Lorna tended toward the bitchy end of the spectrum, but I liked her a lot she had a strong survivor type of bitchiness, not the shrill foot stomping variety The last 60 pages dragged as the plot stagnated in a repetitive description of life with Charles XII s campaign across Russia, the conclusion needed a bitfleshing out, so I m rounding down to a solid 4 stars But still great fun a keeper I ll definitely pick upbooks by this author The Power the Passion squick list very young heroine to begin 15 graphic rape scenes strong violence

Christina Nicholson and she used Coconis as the artist again, his style is unmistakeable The model he used was actually his girlfriend in real life I picked this out of the bargain bin at a Catholic church fund raising, when I was 12 It made the rounds in my school, before being mysteriously lost i.e stolen by someone s mum, no doubt I remember it as being really good a page turner and a bodice ripper I ve never read anything better in the genre since It s like history meets sex and submission Nice Now if only they d put it out in e format AND if Nicholson would write .FREE DOWNLOAD ☹ The
