A Passion Redeemed

By Julie Lessman


No man can resist her charms. Or so she thought.

Charity O’Connor is a woman who gets what she wants. Her stunning beauty and flirtatious ways have always succeeded with men. That is, until Mitch Dennehy. Brilliant and dangerously handsome, Mitch is a no-nonsense newspaperman who wants nothing to do with her. Charity burned him once, destroying his engagement to the only woman he ever truly loved. He won’t play with matches again. But Charity has a plan to turn up the heat, hoping to ignite the heart of the man she loves. And she always gets what she wants—one way or another.
Or does she? Will her best-laid schemes win his love? Or will her seductive ways drive him away forever?
A Passion Redeemed will captivate your heart and stir your soul with a story of faith and redemption rising from the ashes of temptation, desire, and shame.

Book Takeaway:

The MOST important thing I pray readers take away from this book is the reality of how natural and fulfilling an intimate relationship with God can and SHOULD be. Like breathing. This book may be fiction, but this is NOT a fairy tale here. It is possible to have a living, breathing relationship with the God of the Universe. He’s crazy about us, and if most people really understood that, their lives would turn on a dime and blessings would overtake them. Believe me, I KNOW this firsthand—I used to be a hard, cynical, coarse human being before God pulled me up by the scruff of the neck and said, “Yo, Julie! Get a clue. You’re the apple of my eye!”  He’s been the love of my life ever since.

2009 Inspirational Reader's Choice Contest 2nd Place for A Passion Redeemed

Why the author wrote this book:

I wrote this book because I am an Inspirational Romance author with a passion for God and a passion for romance. Since the age of twelve, I’ve been in love with the idea of being “in love.” It happened the moment Scarlett seared Rhett with a look on the winding staircase of Twelve Oaks. Suddenly I was a goner, spellbound by the emotional ebb and flow of romantic relationships.

As an adult, I quickly learned that true romance is spiritual as well as physical and emotional. And one pass through the “Song of Solomon” in the Bible told me that God was the biggest romantic of them all, deeply passionate in His love for each of us. Through my love affair with Him, I have discovered that romance can transcend to another dimension where romantic passion and spiritual passion merge, creating a 3-D love story: the hero, the heroine, and the God that brings them together. I hope you enjoy my stories ... and may they bring you closer to the Father’s heart.


"2nd in The Daughters of Boston trilogy of the O'Connor family, the story of manipulative Charity O'Connor who redeems herself and had me cheering by book's end. A 5-star masterpiece by Julie Lessman!!"

"There's something deeper than just passion in this amazing story between these two characters... and whatever it is... it all begins with one character--Mitch Dennehy."
- Dawn on December 01, 2011

"This book is magnificent! Charity is not your usual damsel in distress heroine. She is manipulative until she lets God lead her heart."
- Ashley on October 23, 2011

"Charity O'Connor is not your average heroine. Can God redeem her from the depths that she has fallen? A story about redeeming love, set in the 19th century and a taste of Francine Rivers bestseller."
- Casey on September 21, 2010

"A Passion Redeemed is a moving study of the human heart in all it's blackness until the light of God's redeeming love purifies it in unexpected ways."
