Fate’s Sweet Passion

Fate's Sweet Passion by [Patricia Crumpler]

Fate’s Sweet Passion had my attention from page one. The year is 1838, and Queen Victoria has just been coronated. Crumpler’s unique style wove an intriguing web for the reader to meander through. The conflict between Alexina Poole and her cousin, the despicable and conniving lawyer, begins when he tries to force her to marry Peyton Woodleigh, the man she supposedly had been betrothed to since she was three years old. Peyton is the brutish yet handsome owner of Applewood Estate. Alexina must now decide if she will remain teaching at Greenfield School for Young Girls or marry a man she hasn’t seen since early childhood.

Crumpler writes in a captivating style, with interesting characters, riveting cliffhangers, and constant dramatic conflicts that left me desperate to know what happens next. The author spares us the extravagant language and instead smartly uses a more direct narrative and easy to understand language that ensures readers always know what is going on.

This is a romance novel, but it breaks the standard tropes and common romantic setups. Instead, I found myself captivated by the characters actions as well as their underlying motives. Taking place in Northern England, I was given a glimpse of England’s breathtaking countryside, and it all felt authentic and exotic due to the authors superb ability to describe scenes.

Fate’s Sweet Passion has some long chapters, however, Crumpler keeps the action moving and the flow of the story brings each chapter to a stimulating end. Consistent conflicts are presented, seeming unsolvable, yet one by one Alexina and Peyton’s bond grows stronger as they overcome each obstacle.

The blooming relationship between the well-bred Alexina and the obstinate Peyton grows in a convincing and alluring way as they learn what each other brings to the relationship. Despite the many conflicts they must overcome, theirs is a true diamond-in-the-rough marriage.

Fate’s Sweet Passion is a riveting romance novel with an unconventional setup to a romance that is absolutely captivating. With compelling characters and a spellbinding story, fans of historical romance novels will be begging for more.
