Overview

Behind their passion lurks a dark truth that could destroy their love.

Mistress Matchmaker, Book 2

A mistress should never be foolish enough to fall in love with her protector, nor trust him with her financial future. Mariah Desmond did both, and now her dearly departed protector has left her with nothing.

Forced to seek another protector, she’s determined that this time, she’ll lead with her survival instinct—not her heart. But when she attends one of Vivien Manning’s infamous parties, the familiar face of her late lover’s best friend throws her for a loop.

A painful past taught John Rycroft that he’s not fit to be anyone’s knight in shining armor. His soft spot—make that a hard spot—for Mariah is precisely why he’s kept his distance. Yet the sight of her flirting with a bevy of men vying to become her next lover makes something inside him snap.

As John hauls her bodily away from her suitors, Mariah’s indignation melts away in the heat of the sizzling sexual chemistry. She quickly finds it isn’t easy to navigate John’s stormy emotional waters. Especially when his abusive father’s quest to get his son back under his thumb puts her life in danger.

Warning: Contains intensely sexy scenes of two people falling into bed (a lot) and in love.

Passion and sneaking around the rules of the Regency society never was as hot as this! For Desire Alone is one hot erotic romance! And this being book 2 did absolutely nothing to stop me from enjoying the story, it's a stand alone one. Now, what makes this story extremely entertaining reading is not just all the yummyness, but the characters and how they fit! John and Mariah made the romance great, I loved her bold attitude and her desire to not get comfortable with John even if they spend days and nights together - which is what John was drawn to. John was a great hero, not a much of a one to begin with but like in all great romances our heroine heals something broken and they can spend the rest of their lives together. So sue me I love love love happy endings. ;)
