A Passion Redeemed by Julie Lessman
From Amazon: Graced with physical beauty, though shallow of heart, Charity O'Connor is a woman who knows what she wants. She sets her sights on the cantankerous Mitch Dennehy, editor at the Irish Times, who has unwittingly stolen her heart. And although the sparks are there, Mitch refuses to fan the coals of a potential relationship with his ex-fiancée's sister. But Charity has a plan to turn up the heat and she always gets what she wants--one way or another. Is revenge so sweet after all? Or will Charity get burned? Full of intense passion, betrayal, and forgiveness, A Passion Redeemed will delight Lessman's fans and draw new ones.
My Review: Julie's 2nd novel Passion Redeemed is filled with vibrant characters that we came to love as well as a few new faces, wonderful story telling and important messages. We follow Charity, Faith's younger sister as she uses all her wit and charms to get what she wants. Along the way she learns that what she wants is'nt always what she needs. Sometimes you have to make others happy, to truly realize what you want. Sometimes you have to hit bottom to before you can know who you really are.
This book resonated so much more then the first as I saw myself in the pages, and found it difficult to move on without shedding tears. This book, like the first is a class act. Thank you Julie, you did it again!!!!!!
