Description: A Sweet and Spicy Novella
The cunningly audacious Lady Lucinda Davenport is by no means a conventional woman. Smart and fiercely determined, she’s more comfortable adding numbers than she’ll ever be socializing with highfalutin members of the ton. When desperate straits force her into action to save her home and lands, she finds herself faced with only one option. Summoning every ounce of her courage, she sets in motion a wild and raunchy scheme that would set the ton on fire if they ever caught wind of her actions.
Lucien Brandford, fourth Duke of Carlsborough, is a dangerous man. Wealthy beyond imagination and handsome to a fault, the Duke is sought after by nearly every woman of the ton. Single, widowed, or married, ladies vie for his attention with cutthroat precision. But the Duke has no tolerance for the machinations of his title and fortune-hungry peers. He seeks his pleasure from women who require no commitment.
That attitude ensnares the Duke in Lady Lucinda’s plan. Caught unawares, Lucien finds himself at the mercy of a bold and luscious woman whom he cannot decide if he wants to strangle or bed.
The sensual dance that follows between captor and captive as they engage in a volatile battle for control, culminates in a seismic eruption—both psychological and sensual. As tempers flare and sparks fly, an intense and erotic interlude of passion ensues.
The temperamental lovers soon discover what all the world knows: that in order to possess the love of a lifetime, they must submit to one another to conquer their own Desperate Desires.
Sensually spiced with a heavy dose of passion, this romantic bestseller comes complete with a memorable cast of characters. You won’t want to put this one down!
My Thoughts: This sweet and spicy romance was a very pleasant story to read. I liked the Lucinda's determination as she does what she feels necessary to save her home. Also, I don't think there could possibly be a hotter romantic hero than Lucien Brandford.
Their relationship gets off to a very rocky start when she kidnaps him. She wants to seduce him and have his baby. Her husband is old and ill and in danger from his greedy relatives. A baby will provide her husband an heir and will protect the estate that they both love. Her husband saved her when she was a needy child and she will do anything to protect him.
Lucinda is surprised by her feelings for Lucian. She hadn't thought that her emotions would become involved. Her plan didn't allow for any emotional involvement. The passion between them immediately ruins her well-planned scheme.
Lucian is reluctant at first to go along with her plans. However, he is soon convinced to do anything to help her. The love scenes are very hot. Readers will need the air conditioning on and an icy beverage to sip while reading them.
Fans of erotic romances will be very satisfied by this novella.
When Lucinda finally sat up, she raised both her knees to her chest. Her hair trailed down her back. "Milord, I'm so sorry. I fear I am being disloyal to you. "Tis just that I've never felt this way before. I didn't think I could feel such wanton things as this. I didn't expect to enjoy the Duke so very much. I find myself embarrassed because you have been nothing but exceedingly kind to me."I received this ebook book for review from the author as a part of her blog tour. It is available at Amazon here.
