one of Harlequin Presents most talented authors and one of my
personal favorites, Jane Porter...
Also, see what readers and fellow authors have to say.
"I love that Ms. Porter always
writes strong males who are softies where their families and
the women they love are concerned. Lon is definitely one of
those men and then some.
"The sexual tension between Lon and Sophie could be felt
from the moment I cracked open The Spaniard's
Passion and started
reading the prologue. I've only come across a handful of
Harlequin Presents authors who are consistently able to deliver
compelling must-read romances. Jane Porter is one of them. Original
and well plotted with two larger than life characters, The
Spaniard's Passion sparkles with undeniable brilliance. It's a true deep-sigh

Jane Porter's fourth entry in the Galvan Brides series, is an
exciting ride into the South American jungle, filled with many
twists, turns, and surprises. The characters are passionate and
believable. Quite simply, The Spaniard's Passion is
a wonderful book that you will not be able to put down until
the very last page is finished."

is still terrified of the intense feelings she has for Lon, even
after years apart. She knows that she must ... escape Lon before
he makes her lose control...
"Heated, explosive and intense is Jane
Porter's latest tale, The Spaniard's Passion.
Lon is an Alpha male who can work one up to frustration with
his stubbornness and make one burn with his sensuality. Sophie
learns so much about herself in this tale. She learns that it
is okay to lose control sometimes, she discovers her own needs
and desires and learns to grab happiness when she finds it. Ms.
Porter does a wonderful job of keeping the reader on the edge
of their seat, biting their nails and yelling at Sophie to take
what is right in front of her...her perfect soulmate. This tale
literally takes one's breath away with a roller-coaster of emotions,
danger, intrigue and the bonds of love and family. Jane Porter
is an author to read when looking for action and adventure, sensual
characters, an Alpha male who is sexy as sin and for love that
transcends time. The Spaniard's Passion is definitely a must

Porter delivers a powerful entry to the Presents line and her
Galvan family series. The
Spaniard's Passion will knock your socks off

favorite Galvan. "

is the perfect heroine for Lon even though she has been fighting
her attraction for the man ever since she first met him. She
is so afraid of losing control. It is such fun to watch these
two spar -- the sparks fly sky high.
"Porter's trademark alpha male characters are strong, capable,
intelligent, and well... alpha with a capital "A".
They take your breath away. The Spaniard's Passion is a rich,
passionate, emotional read that deals with more than just the
usual romantic love. "

Clive and Alonso were the best of friends until Sophie had to
choose between them. Scared of Alonso's intensity and feelings,
Sophie chose Clive and the tranquility of his affection. Years
later, Sophie is widowed, and Alonso comes back to England to
reclaim the woman who has always been destined to be his. But
before Sophie can do anything, she is determined to go to Brazil
to discover the secrets of her husband's death. But what she
discovers is more than she wants to know. The Spaniard's
by Jane Porter is an intense read that blends action, adventure,
romance and passion into a well-crafted story. Alonso is arrogant,
sexy as hell and protective. He's a perfect alpha hero -- nothing
will get between him and his woman again."

»"If you've been holding out for the perfect hero, the wait is over. I found him in The Spaniard's Passion by Jane Porter. Alonso Galvan represents everything I love about men. He has gone to hell and back for his woman and I know he would do it again without hesitation. I am just as mesmerized by his fierce emotions as the heroine Sophie is. Although I've been reading romances for over twenty years, The Spaniard's Passion is now the standard for what I expect and need in a love story."
