is introducing

A Passion Most Pure

(Revell January 1, 2008)


Julie Lessman


Julie Lessman is a debut author who has already garnered writing acclaim, including ten Romance Writers of America awards. She is a commercial writer for Maritz Travel, a published poet and a Golden Heart Finalist. Julie has a heart to write “Mainstream Inspirational,” reaching the 21st-century woman with compelling love stories laced with God’s precepts. She resides in Missouri with her husband and their golden retriever, and has two grown children and a daughter-in-law. A Passion Most Pure is her first novel.


She's found the love of her life. Unfortunately, he loves her sister ...

As World War I rages across the Atlantic in 1916, a smaller war is brewing in Boston. Faith O’Connor finds herself drawn to an Irish rogue who is anything but right for her. Collin McGuire is brash, cocky, and from the wrong side of the tracks, not to mention forbidden by her father. And then there’s the small matter that he is secretly courting her younger sister. But when Collin’s affections suddenly shift her way, it threatens to tear Faith's proper Boston family apart.

Refusing to settle for anything less than a romantic relationship that pleases God, Faith O'Connor steels her heart against her desire for the roguish Collin McGuire. Collin is trying to win her sister Charity's hand, and Faith isn't sure she can handle the jealousy she feels. Full of passion, romance, rivalry, and betrayal, A Passion Most Pure is Book 1 of the Daughters of Boston series.

Pop me in the draw please?

What I like in a leading man? Ya know, I never really thought about it too deeply.

I think I like to see a man who treats the leading lady like a lady. With care, respect, etc etc. An example, in 'Sarah My Beloved' Rocky Callahan was a perfect leading man, despite his inner turmoil.

The qualities I admire in the leading man in a novel is when he's really respectful towards women.
I'd love to be entered.

This book is on the way to me so i wont be entering
im not sure what qualities i like
but honesty, strength, a man who will stand up for and be there to support the heroine if she needs it.

This one willbe interesting after our recent discussion so count me in.My idea of a leading man is someone funny honest that I could trust tolook after me.

Naomi said...

Definitely a man who is strong in the Lord and not afraid to lead the heroine in that. That is very very attractive to me. If he has that all the rest of the qualities seem to fall into place.

Jen said...

Now you have me thinking! Honesty, strength of character and passion in all areas of his life. Please pop me in as I need some escape from reality into fiction.
