Book Description

Geoffrey Kane, Earl of Kanewood refuses to feel anything more than passion. Four years ago, his fiancée betrayed him and he has no desire to experience that again so when he meets the beautiful Rebecca Kingsley, it’s passion at first sight. And only passion.

Rebecca has led a very quiet life working for her father at a small country inn. When she meets Geoffrey she falls in love with him right away. But she’s only the daughter of a baronet and men like Geoffrey never marry country girls like her. Do they?

When Rebecca’s father tries to marry her off to a wealthy old man, Geoffrey intervenes and marries her himself. He wants her very much but he couldn’t possibly love her. Love is for fools. At least that’s what he tells himself. But a sinister enemy soon threatens to destroy all that Geoffrey holds dear, forcing him to face the truth. His marriage depends on it . . . And maybe even Rebecca’s very life.

2.0 out of 5 stars It had its moments... June 12, 2013
By Dejavu
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
That's all the good I could come up with. This book is not a great read. isn't even a good read. It had its moments, but they were very few. There were so many unbelievable parts that it became extremely hard to keep going. There were so many stories and just too much of everything. I think the author tried to incorporate everything that a good story should have, but she fell very short because she tried too hard to make it all fit. It just seemed rush and unbelievable. Not just the part about an Earl marrying an inn keepers daughter. I've read romances like that before. This author has potential I think, but this book could have been so much better. I was all set to give it 2.5 stars, but then I got to a section that just made me want to throw the book out a window.

I'm so glad it only cost 99 cents.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money!! Do not buy! February 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do not like giving bad reviews. In fact, I admire this author for even writing a book, something that is no easy feat. However, reading this book felt like reading something a high schooler wrote. The story did not flow through smoothy, and there were times I was a little confused as to what was taking place. The whole book could've used some enhancement and development. Other things in this book were just too unbelievable.

***SPOILERS**** The H/H ended up getting physical before they barely spoke 10 sentences together at the beginning of the book. I understand it was portrayed to be love at first sight, but back then, it was hounded into every unmarried girl's head to not just do away with their virginity, especially to basically a stranger. But 'Becca' sure didn't think twice about resisting. She just fell in bed with the first man who stirred feelings in her? Not likely! There was not a lot of dialogue between them and even when there was, it was boring and lacking.

Then, there was the whole plot that surrounded Rebecca and her mother, etc. That was poorly written and shouldn't have even been written in the book. She gets one comment at a ball saying that she looks like a lady in Scotland who has the same name as her dead mother. The reader forgets all about that, until Rebecca is upset and wants to leave Geoffrey. So on a whim she decides to head to Scotland to see this lady for herself. Then, it just so happens that this lady is indeed her long lost mother who abandoned her daughter for the man she loves, and then Rebecca immediately forgives her mother. Really???? Does not sound plausible.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much passion! November 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Sometimes you come across a romance that not only has a great love story but is also sweet, funny and super sexy. And More Than Passion (Book 1 Dashing Nobles Series) has all of those qualities and more. I loved it. I can't wait to gobble up Pride and Fire the second book in this wonderful series. Definitely a keeper!

1.0 out of 5 stars I'm sorry but....terrible! January 16, 2013
By Sar_C
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For only the second time in my life I have found a book that was so absurdly bad I could not finish it, More Than Passion, was it. The writing was incredibly immature, containing very little of substance and largely slabs of dialogue followed by 'she said' or 'he said'. The author failed to explain the motives, desires or thoughts of the characters, instead attempting to allow the dialogue to do this for her and unfortunately failing miserable. I truly fail to understand how this was published. The one positive I could find was that the pretence of the story was quite cute, but even then, I just couldn't escape the atrocious writing. I'm sorry, but I truly would not recommend the purchase or reading of this novel.

2.0 out of 5 stars Modern romance disguised as a regency January 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author doesn't write too badly but aside from throwing in a few titles and words like 'ton', ball etc, the book is very modern in attitude. The story wasn't bad but unfortunately not very credible in parts. Very light entertainment.

I was swept away by More Than Passion. I couldn't put it down. The lively characters captured my attention and left me wanting more. This was the first book I read by this author and I will be reading more of her work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has a Few Issues, but still Good **3 1/2 Stars** March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. Yes it has a few problems, but in my mind the plot is so engaging, that it outweighs any deficiencies within the story. Rebecca and Geoffrey are both likeable, relatable characters...Becca is a bit too good, too naïve, and too timid for my taste, but not so extreme as to be TSTL. On the other hand, Geoffrey's character is quite well drawn, and more realistic. The "bad" characters, Geoffrey's brother and sister-in-law, were also, IMO, quite well developed. I see from a number of the reviews that some readers found the writing lacking; this surprised me because, IMHO quite the opposite is true. The story that unfolds does have some unrealistic aspects, but I was more than happy to overlook those issues, because in my view, they are minor.

Becca is the daughter of an innkeeper, her father, Thomas, is a younger son of a baronet, thus Becca is a member of the gentry. When Geoffrey's coach loses a wheel, he gets stranded in Becca's home village and spends several days at the inn. During that time Becca and Geoffrey get to know one another. Becca is very beautiful, and from the very first, takes Geoffrey's breath away. As for Becca, she feels an instant, unexplainable connect to Geoffrey...for her it was very like love at first sight. Geoffrey's feelings take a while longer to develop, but this is not one of those stories where you have to wait until the very end for confessions of love. Very quickly Becca and Geoffrey find themselves in bed together. When Geoffrey proposes marriage, Becca refuses...she thinks Geoffrey is a man of simple means and doesn't want to be a burden to him. Her belief stems from the fact that all her life her father has made Becca feel like a burden. Thomas is a gruff, somewhat unfeeling parent.
