Anna Markland's historical romance of Robert and Dorianne during the upheaval between England and Normandie is sheer genius! History comes alive when one reads their story. The details are woven seamlessly into this story of true love and passion.

It is turbulent times when Robert de Montbryce decides he wants a love like his parents have shared for many years. Dorianne de Giroux's is the total opposite as hate, vengeance and the need for power are their only friends. When her family arranges marriage to a boy of only twelve, she can't wonder what her life will hold. But when she unwittingly falls in love with her family's enemy, a Montbryce, all is turned upside down.

This is a rousing story of a true, abiding love, told on the backdrop of medieval history and a must for everyone! Don't miss out...this is a great story...by an equally great story teller.

This story is about Robert Montbryce. Eldest son in line to be the Compte on his father's death desires a love for himself that his parents Ram and Maybell have always enjoyed.

In the midst of an upheaval when Norman interests were in jeopardy, Robert's family decide to support Henry, son of William the Conqueror, for the English throne. Everyone had to make a similar choice and some chose to lift their swords for Curthose his brother. One such family, old enemies of Ram Montbryce were Pierre de Giroux and his father. A meeting where everyone attended was called and Robert met and fell in love with Pierre's sister Dorianne. From this point on the tale carries the reader from happiness to heartbreak, jealousy to betrayal, and from terrible suffering to the heights of joy. I loved following this story and enjoyed every page because it seemed that something continuously happened to keep me involved. And the romance the author wove into each page? Well it was beautiful!

I grew up reading historical romances, especially medievals, where the history was not much more than a colorful backdrop for the romance. In Passion In the Blood, the historical detail is impressive, the events helping drive the story, intertwined with a very strong romance. It is masterfully done. The reader is sucked into the 12th century, right into the middle of politics, intrigue, and the trappings of life in that era. My only regret is that I started with this book, which I believe is the fourth in the series. While Ms. Markland did an excellent job of catching me up to date on the family members and important past events that informed their current situation, it was a lot of information to take in at the beginning. So, it can stand alone, but I would recommend starting with the beginning of the series and reading all of them.

This book started off quite well but then loses steam about 2 thirds of the way through. I quite liked the way the main characters fell head over heels in love but later on in the book, where we jump ahead several years, I could have happily closed the book.

+++Spoilers+++
The h and H were the children of sworn enemies but meet and fall in love anyway. Later in the book after getting married and having 2 children with a third on the way, the h's brother betrays the H and he's captured for a long time. He missed out on the birth of his son and then takes 1 year to get over what happened to him. By that I mean he doesn't feel worthy to make love to his wife and so even though he's home, he rejects her emotionally. This was all a bit tedious and drawn out.

I cried. Because along with an engaging romance this book told of the death of a much beloved character in the family. Like his brothers and the rest of the family that came before them Robert Montbryce believes in both destiny and true love so when he meets the woman he knows is meant for him he quickly and boldly pursues her even though they should be enemies. While the young and trusting Dorianne is able to set aside old hatred, her family is not and let me tell you they cause trouble. I think Dorianne is the first Montbryce Heroine that I've not completely loved, she's so naive and trusting that she brings about a lot of their problems with her blind innocence. It took a lot for me to find her worthy of Robert but in the end she redeems herself. This installment of the family saga will not disappoint. It is well written with lots of action and even a cat -- how can you not love a cat named "Hope" just when things are looking their darkest?

Great continuation. Rams sons are grown with responsibilities of their own and futures to secure. Enemies become family, more grand children for Ram and Mabelle. More war, more pain, more sorrow, more loss. All encompassed with undying love and compassion that brings healing and happiness. Another great read. Can't wait to read the next one.

This book in the Montbryce family saga follows Ram and Mabelle's son, Robert. Set against the tumultous politics and wars of the early 12th century, Robert is torn. As a Norman with property in England, should he follow Curthose or the newly-crowned Henry, who as Henry II who will establish the Plantagenet dynasty in England. While in Normandy, he meets Dorianne de Giroux and falls in love, not an appropirate match as Dorianne's family carries a hatred for the Montbyces.
Dorianne's brother, Pierre, locks her up in a nunnery on Mont St. Michael, but she's rescued by Robert and they marry. Love wins out, even though Pierre continues his attacks on the pair.
A fast, sexy read of medieval romance with treachery, envy, lust and love all playing a part.
