A Passion Redeemed by Julie Lessman

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing

A Passion Redeemed
Revell (September 1, 2008)

Julie Lessman

Julie Lessman is a debut author who has already garnered writing acclaim, including ten Romance Writers of America awards. She is a commercial writer for Maritz Travel, a published poet and a Golden Heart Finalist. Julie has a heart to write “Mainstream Inspirational,” reaching the 21st-century woman with compelling love stories laced with God’s precepts. She resides in Missouri with her husband and their golden retriever, and has two grown children and a daughter-in-law. A Passion Most Pure, book one in the Daughters of Boston series, was her first novel.

No man can resist her charms. Or so she thought. Charity O'Connor is a woman who gets what she wants. Her stunning beauty and flirtatious ways have always succeeded with men. Until Mitch Dennehy, that is.

Brilliant and dangerously handsome, Mitch is a no-nonsense newspaperman who wants nothing to do with her. Charity burned him once, destroying his engagement to the only woman he ever truly loved. He won't play with matches again. But Charity has a plan to turn up the heat, hoping to ignite the heart of the man she loves. And she always gets what she wants--one way or another.

Or does she? Will her best-laid schemes win his love? Or will her seductive ways drive him away forever? Book 2 in the Daughters of Boston series, A Passion Redeemed will captivate your heart and stir your soul with a story of faith and redemption rising from the ashes of temptation, desire, and shame.

Praise for the first book in the series:
"Full of romance, humor, rivalry, and betrayal, A Passion Most Pure will captivate readers from the first page." --Historical Novels Review "Superb! Incredible!
"I loved Julie Lessman's A Passion Most Pure from the second I picked it up until the very last moment I stopped reading." --Armchair Interviews
"I devoured this book and loved every single page. . . . This is a thick, juicy read, and one I would pick up again in a heartbeat."

Smudge says, YOU HAVE TO READ THIS SERIES! Julie Lessman treads the ground of passion in and outside of love and God's will with such finesse and truth, unlike anything I've read in Christian Fiction to date. I absolutely love these books and I normally don't care for historicals. These books are loaded with awesome characters and timeless struggles.

I love this series so much that one special commenter will not only get A Passion Redeemed, but also A Passion Most Pure. I am buying these books out of my own pocket to share them and support this fabulous author. Anyone who refers a friend will get their name in twice for the drawing, so BE SURE TO COMMENT!

CONGRATULATIONS to Ronie Kendig for winning House of Wolves by Matt Bronleewe!

I would love to read these books. I have actually read the first one, but my mother has not. She would love to read them, too. I would refer her to your site, but she is allergic to computers. LOL!
