Pride and Passion by Charlotte Featherstone

Goodreads Description:

Lucy Ashton had long ago given up her quest for true love. In the rarified society of Victorian England, Lucy plays the game; flirting, dancing and dabbling in the newly fashionable spiritualism. Even marrying when and who she's supposed to. If the stuffy Duke of Sussex cannot spark the passion she craves, he can at least give her a family, a home of her own, and a place to belong. But when her polite marriage reveals a caring and sensual man, Lucy begins to wonder if she can indeed have it all.

But Lord Sussex is not the man the London ton has come to admire. And Lucy has some ghosts of her own, as well. Thus, when a blackmail scheme turns to threats of danger, the newfound peace of the Sussex marriage is cast upon the rocks. Passion has a price, Lucy learns. And not all ghosts stay buried.

My Rating:

My Review:

Lucy's obsession with her 'love' Thomas takes her to spiritualists trying to connect to her dead love who she though burned to death in his studio.  Lord Sussex, who loved Lucy, wants to prove that her 'love' Thomas was really a murderer and an evil man.  Through out the book the romance builds slowly and I was absolutely stunned by Lord Sussex' confession at the end!  The mystery and action in this book rival the first in the series and are FANTASTIC!  A must read!
