Overview

When veteran yoga instructor Mila Mercado was asked to attend a new class and report back to the studio, she had no idea that the over-confident, ruggedly sexy newbie Atlas Powers was going to teach more than just a very controversial and erotic form of yoga.

New instructor Atlas Powers has two passions in life: his music career and steamy by-the-book Mila Mercado. He teaches yoga by day and works at his passion by night until the fiery woman walks into his class and gives the term desire a whole new dimension.

In this wicked hot tale of love and lust, two struggling artists are trying to make their dreams come true. Only one thing gets in the way… until they stop fighting long enough to burn up the sheets and the yoga studio with a divine desire neither of them can avoid.

Divine Desire By: Audrey Carlan 5 Star Review by Kristie K Divine Desire is a decadent escape filled with love, heat, and heavenly sensuality…divine indeed… For Mila Mercado, yoga is a way of life, but her passion is painting. Working toward her dream has been a challenge. Working long hours to make ends meet, and even longer hours in the studio with her paintbrush, doesn’t leave much time for a social life. Determined to follow her dream, Mila will not let anything stand between her and her greatest wish…not even the hot new yoga teacher who heats every one of her nerve endings… For Atlas Powers, yoga keeps him centered, and pays the bills until his true passion comes to fruition. Music is his life…his blood, sweat and tears, and the only thing he has every wanted to do. Working days at the yoga studio, nights in the club, and every other minute on his music, Atlas doesn’t have time for much else…except driving the hot little latina at the yoga studio out of her mind. His determination to make her his is nearly as strong as his desire to follow his dreams…which divine desire will win out? Oh. My. Heavens…Ms. Carlan has outdone herself yet again. Divine is a perfect name for the third installment in the Lotus House Series. I was completely enthralled from the first page to the last. Atlas Powers is an adorably sexy, charming, and unbelievably HOT man with just the right amount of alpha male to take things up a notch in the bedroom…not to mention handling the hot, independent little latina that is Mila Mercado. “Oh, I’m getting it. Taking it. Living and breathing it in until we’re too exhausted to give it anymore.” ~Atlas Powers~ These two burn up the pages, their back and forth banter, jabs, and heated exchanges make for incredibly fun reading. When things get deeper, the way each of them handles those situations holds a realism that is unique to Ms. Carlan. Many authors bring realism, but none quite like she does. I adored both characters, and the integration of other characters from previous (and future) books, is totally awesome. The plot is well thought out, without holes, and expertly executed. I am already jonesing to see a story for Clay and Moe (hint hint, Ms. Carlan). The storyline flowed effortlessly, and was incredible from beginning to end. Thank you, Ms. Carlan for another amazing journey. With each and every one of her books, she creates a Divine Desire all her own… Kristie K.

Divine Desire is in one word, divine. Audrey Carlan works her magic again, and her characters come to life on the page. Mila Mercado is fiercely independent and loyal, with the just the right amount of sass to keep the people around her on their toes. When asked to sit in on a potential new class, Mila is thrown for a loop once she finds out that Atlas Powers is the instructor. Knowing Atlas to be cocky and somewhat egotistical, she is reluctant to agree, but with no other options, she has no other choice. Although her dream is to become an artist, Mila knows that her patience, hard work, and loyalty will one day be worth the wait. I love all of Audrey's characters, but Mila has to be one of my top three. Her free-spirit and sassiness spoke to me and is something I can relate to. I'd also describe Atlas Powers as fiercely independent and hard working. A successful yoga instructor himself, teaching yoga comes naturally, and he loves what he does. When the idea of teaching a new yoga class pops into his head, he won't take no for an answer and will do anything to see his vision come to life. Imagine his surprise when he walks into his first class only to see the fiery readhead who has recently caught his eye sitting in on his class. Knowing Mila has a spunk of her own, I'd say that Atlas throws her world upside down as their story continues. Naked yoga. Do I have your attention now? Mila is appalled when she finds out what kind of class she has been set up to sit in on. Not only is Atlas distracting, but with no clothing involved, Mila knows she's in trouble. The chemistry between Atlas and Mila is off the charts. Mila may act as if she has no feelings for Atlas, but her actions tell another story. Sure, they argue and banter back and forth, but in the end, it's what makes the hot stuff even hotter. Everyone around them can see that they have an undeniable attraction to one another, but it takes both of them some time to finally admit their feelings for one another. Everything is seemingly perfect until past mistakes come back to haunt Mila and Atlas is forced to face his past. Will the two kindred spirits find a way to their happy? Or will their demons force them to walk away from one another. Read Divine Desire to find out! All I can say is that I loved this story. I say that about everything that Audrey Carlan writes, but she has an uncanny ability make each of her stories relatable. I swooned over Atlas, I squealed when things worked out how I pictured they would, and my heart hurt at how much both of these characters had to overcome to find their happiness. If you're looking for a book with quirky characters, a realistic plot, and a happily ever after, Divine Desire is the book for you. You won't be disappointed!

This is the third book in this series however they can be read as standalone books. This is the first book I have read by Audrey and loved it. This book is about two yoga instructors that have dream jobs they are trying to launch. Mila and Atlas both didn’t have the best of childhoods and it has affected how they handle relationships or how they don’t handle them. Atlas and Mila have a love hate sort of relationship. They snap and bite at each other. Atlas knew before he formally met Mila that he was attracted to her. He knew that she would take some convincing to agree to be with him. Mila was instantly attracted to Atlas when she met him however if she isn’t working at the Lotus House than she is working on her painting. She doesn’t have time for a man especially Atlas. She has a feeling that being with him would be more than scratching an itch. This book had me hooked right from the beginning. Mila and Atlas are great characters. They go through such a change in the book. They open themselves up to what might be despite what their past experiences. Atlas is a bit more willing to express his feelings then Mila. I think it is fear that keeps Mila from expressing how she feels. I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this book. I haven’t read the other books in this series but I have put them on my TBR list. I look forward to read more books by Audrey in the future. I was given this book in return for an honest review.

This was an enjoyable read and the Yoga theme once again gives this series a fresh and original theme. I have to say this book was a slow burn for me and it took a little while for me to warm up to the characters and story but in saying that I really liked Audrey's writing style and the writing was fleshed out and mature. The H/h have amazing chemistry from the get go but given their history, neither believes they want or need a relationship. I loved that this couple's chemistry is sizzling and instant and neither is afraid to reveal their feelings but what makes the relationship shine is that we see how they develop and grow into a couple. This was a lovely stand alone read. It is hot as hades, has brilliant supporting characters and relationships, with touching romance and a wee bit of angst thrown in for good measure, I enjoyed this. I was provided with a review copy of this book book from the Publisher; there was no inducement or obligation.

What do you get when two hot-blooded, artistic, people are in the same room? Well, if it's DIVINE DESIRE by author Audrey Carlan, you get Mila Mercado and Atlas Powers, two of the sexiest most well-paired yoga instructors to come out of Lotus House. All that Mila the artist really wants to do is to work on her craft. Seeing a subject in most everyone, she yearns to focus on doing what comes naturally to her full time, to pour out her passion in her painting and share it with the world. In the meantime, though, she's busy as a yoga instructor at Lotus House. Well, that, and fighting her passion for Lotus House's newest yogi, Atlas Powers. When Atlas suggests teaching an, erm, unorthodox form of yoga as part of the Lotus House line-up, Mila is tapped to attend and report back to her bosses. But what Mila mostly gets out of the class is a major case of the hots for him, and a wicked idea that will have them spending lots of time together. Audrey's Lotus House series has so many things going for it. I have come to understand things about yoga that I did not know before, and her inclusion of the practices of yoga make for an earthiness and sensuality that add so much to these books. Mila and Atlas are a fiery mix of artistic temperment that combust to make one heck of a hot couple. Beyond the physical, though, both are working through things from their past, and trying to make their way to their happy despite it. When those ghosts from the past come home to roost, Mila and Atlas have their work cut out for them, and it's an emotional road that the two have to travel to come out on the other side. Audrey has once again written a story that simultaneously grabs you by the heartstrings and heats things up, and it's one that I thoroughly enjoyed. 5 no-question stars for DIVINE DESIRE, as expected. And, based on the little snippet at the end of this book, we're going to love LIMITLESS LOVE, the next book in the series, so if you haven't read the first books, now's the time to get caught up. Fans of Audrey should move these books right to the top of their TBRs, and get reading!

I have been a fan of Audrey's since I read the first chapter of January's calendar girl. From then on I have been hooked!!! The Lotus house series has not disappointed every book in this series pulls you into the crazy lives of each yogi from Trent and Genevieve in resisting roots to Dash and Amber in Sacred Serenity and now Atlas and "wildcat" Mila in Divine Desire. Both characters come from the same kind of upbringing and both have their troubles with commitment and allowing themselves to feel and let loose in a relationship but when brought together they fit perfectly. I loved this book so much along with all of the others!!! I can't wait to read the next one and find out about Mo and clay!!! Thank you Audrey for another amazing read!!!
