Praise for Engaged in Passion
5 stars — Engaged in Passion is a sexy Regency romance with a plus size unlikely heroine. The entertaining quick read is loads of fun. – Holly Lenz’s Reviews
I really enjoyed this cute and steamy romp by Jade Lee I found it refreshing that Francine and Anthony are not from the aristocracy, but from the wealthy tradesman class. As the old saying goes, “folks are folks” which is very true where human behavior is concerned. Both of the lead characters in this entertaining read are likable and complex, and their seemingly hopeless situation is resolved in a humorously interesting way. – Martha B, Goodreads Review
5.0 out of 5 stars Love Jade Lees Sexy Stories!! This was an enjoyable read, it grabbed my attention and kept me engaged till the end. I loved the fact that the two were not part of the aristocracy but just regular folk. – Amazon reviewer
