Illicit Passion (Royal Command Book 2) by Sarah Stuart is the story of a family on the edge of destruction by its own immoral secrets. What happens when a woman loves her own father, passionately, intimately, sexually? The booming voice of the world will be rising, saying it is taboo, but to the elegant and successful television personality, Lisette, it is a completely different story. Lisette loved her father, and had his child, and now, what has been a closely guarded secret may be revealed. The media want nothing more than to feed on the scandal that could rock the world. The family has to do something and they have to do it fast or their already shaky bonds might be shattered forever. The question is: how much time do they have to contain this secret and who might have known about it?
Sarah Stuart's Illicit Passion is a riveting family saga built around incest, blackmail, and the stabbings-in-the-back that take place when someone knows something that shouldn't be known. Stuart is a storyteller who will please readers with her elegance of style. Her prose is sensual and exquisitely beautiful, and she creates characters that are as compelling as they are memorable. The story is interestingly unnerving, with enough suspense to keep readers turning the pages until the very last, and then they will want more. It will keep you glued to your chair until you finish it, and you'll think about the characters for a long time.
From the Author
The same thing happened in a Goodreads discussion of Illicit Passion. Michael polled the most votes as the favourite character, but there was enormous interest in the ongoing relationship between "the twins", Harriet and Kit, and in young Greta. Their stories continue in Dynasty of Deceit, which I hope to publish later this year.
Margaret Tudor's Book of Hours continues to hold interest, which is a treat for me as I love history almost as much as showbiz and the research into life in the 16th century is fascinating. My other passion, the protection of wildlife, and concern for unwanted pets, means the royalties from every sale of my books goes to animal charities.
