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.


I loved the story that leads up to the erotic parts of this novel! That being said, I really wished this title would have been longer. I would have loved to explore a little more of the story and read less erotic but still spicy scenes! The author has amazing talent and the storyline is so refreshing and unique! I was hooked from the beginning.

The spicy scenes in this book were done well also, though I felt the historical language was slightly lost in these scenes as some of the terminology had a more contemporary feel to it. The characters are obviously attracted to each other and are extremely likable. Each character within the story is unique and lovable, bringing a certain flare to the story that would have been missed if they were not part of it.

The novella was extremely easy to read. I flew through it! It definitely kept my interest. The author has a wonderful writing style and is extremely talented. For those who don’t have an e-reader, I’m sorry; I could only find this book available in e-book format. Overall, it was a satisfying read but left me wanting more. I wanted to read more of the story before it starts and find out what happens next! It has definite series potential. If you love romance this one is worth the read.

**If you don’t like to read anything erotic, this one is considered “spicy erotica” and runs a line between romance and erotica. **
