Passionate Pursuit is a compelling historical fiction novel that takes place during the 15th century.
Beatriz Gonzalez y Serrano of Andalucia, Spain, didn’t want to marry someone, just because her father told her to do so. Her father had chosen Marquis Larnaz Telles, a cruel and ruthless man to be her betrothed. Her mother was sent to an early grave because of her father’s abuse. Beatrice had no intention of following in her footsteps. No, Beatriz would rather work as a lowly servant, for the rest of her life, than marry a man like her father.
After Beatriz had escaped her childhood home, she secured a job, working as a servant for Don Tomas. Although she worked long hours and was exhausted most of the time, she was grateful to be free.
Although Beatrice realized that a love relationship could never develop, she couldn’t help but to look forward to Don Tomas’s visits. Don Tomas, knew that his life would be a lot less complicated if he could just forget about Beatrice, but he couldn’t. She was unlike any servant he had ever had. It was puzzling to him, though, that Beatriz could read and write. Don Tomas was convinced that she was hiding something, and he was determined to unearth whatever secrets the mysterious woman thought she had safely buried.
This novel is well-written and captivating. If you enjoy reading adult medieval romances, than Passionate Pursuit is the book for you.
