A Passion Redeemed by Julie Lessman

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.

My Review
It was so great to see the O'Conner family again. Charity has finally met her match with Mitch, a man who's so attracted to her it drives him mad, but is equally determined not to fall in love with a woman he can't trust. And she's proven to him many times she can't be trusted, beginning with the seduction that spoiled his engagement to her sister a year earlier. Thrown together by consequences from one of Charity's schemes gone wrong, Mitch tries to keep his heart intact while showing Charity her need for God. But that's hard to do when the most beautiful woman in the world won't release him from her clutches. In the end, which will win the battle--his body or his heart? 

A wonderful story of redemption from the consequences of sin with so many twists I couldn't put it down.
I gave this book 5 stars!


  1. CANDICE!!! Thank you SO MUCH for the wonderful review, and THANK YOU for liking Charity (I hope!) because she is one of my favorite characters I've written thus far. By book 5 in this family saga (book 2 of the Winds of Change series, A Heart Revealed), she has changed so much and has me laughing out loud in almost every scene she's in because she is such a hoot!! I would love to see you post this on Amazon, and if you do, please let me know so I can give you an extra point in my contest to have a character named after you in my next book and a signed copy, okay? I am giving you a point now for this blog review, so BLESS YOU!! Hugs, Julie

  2. Julie, I LOVED Charity. She had a Scarlett O'Hara complex that captivated me as much as Scarlett did. I had no idea you were writing more about the O'Conner's, and I'm thrilled. These books will definitely be on my to-read list! You're welcome for the review. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
