Review: A Knight of Passion By: Tarah Scott

Lady Riana Ellis will risk the fires of Hell for those she loves. Can she let a man do the same for her?

As whore for the Duchess of Arundel, Lady Riana Ellis keeps her sister safe from the duke’s lascivious desires. But the duchess now demands that Riana murder the man already sent to her bed.

But the wrong knight arrives.

Time is running out. Riana has set into motion the downfall of the duke and duchess. If she and her sister don’t escape, they’ll be crushed when Arundel falls. To ensure her sister’s freedom, Riana must give the performance of her life and fool the man in her bed...and the woman watching them.

Sir Bryant Cullen determines to have the duchess’ whore. Her land is a prize, but it’s her secrets he wants. Once he knows what she knows, he will control one of the most powerful houses in Scotland. And she will be his.

But Riana waits for no man to save her, trusts no man-no matter how much he sets her body on fire. When Sir Bryant puts his life on the line for her, how will she stop his sacrifice?

My Review:
It's no secret that I have enjoyed Tarah Scott's books and this one has earned a place in my favorites section.   This was an erotic and decadent little short that had some extremely hot sex scenes.  Riana was left at the mercy of a cruel Duke and Duchess after her husband and father were both killed.  The Duke quickly marries Riana's mother off and keeps both her and her sister as his wards.  But being the "ward" of this Duke takes on a different meaning altogether.  After she was raped and passed around Riana was given into the care of the Duchess who turned her into the castle whore.  Riana embraced this new role in order to keep her sister safe and pure.  As long as she did what she was told her sister remained untouched.  But when the Duchess tries to make her a murderess, Riana realizes her time to try and make a run for it was close at hand.  The man she was supposed to kill, will be the last man she services for that disgusting pair.  But something happens and the wrong knight ends up in her bed.  And this knight brings out a passion in her that she didn't know existed.
Bedazzled by this beautiful temptress in his bed, Sir Bryant is powerless to brush away the urge to taste her.  But Bryant has never taken an unwilling woman, whore or no.  His is well aware that if she is being sent to him, the Duchess definitely had plans.  But what man could resist this beauty?  And after having a taste of  her charms, he knew that it would never be enough.  But could he win her love?
This book really hits it on the hotness scale, as well as having quite a unique story.  Tarah definitely would have hooked me with this one, if she hadn't already!!  Excellent Read!!

I have been wanting to read this book for quite a while now. It sounds great, I love that Riana is doing all she can to protect her sister and hope that Sir Bryant is the man to save both she & her sister, and make sue that the guilty persons are punished.
