Overview

He tried to run....

In his youth, Hugh MacCarrick foolishly fell in love with a beautiful English lass who delighted in teasing him with her flirtatious ways. Yet he knew he could never marry her because he was shadowed by an accursed family legacy. To avoid temptation, Hugh left home, ultimately becoming an assassin.

She tried to forget him....

Jane Weyland was devastated when the Highlander she believed would marry her abandoned her instead. Years later, when Hugh MacCarrick is summoned to protect her from her father's enemies, her heartache has turned to fury -- but her desire for him has not waned.

Will passion overwhelm them?

In hiding, Jane torments Hugh with seductive play. He struggles to resist her because of deadly secrets that could endanger her further. But Hugh is no longer a gentle young man -- and toying with the fever-pitched desires of a hardened warrior will either get Jane burned...or enflame a love that never died.

I love the MacCarrick brothers! This book was as good as the first one. I'm working on the third one right now. I could not put Desire down (same as the first one)! They are just so exciting and sexy and steamy and everything you want in a romance book.

This is my first ever romance novel..and I have to say I am glad I chose this as my first! I got into it and could not put it down. Kresley cole wrote in a way that makes the reader feel what the characters are feeling. Some of the parts even made me have the shivers on the back of my neck just as she described in the book! Thats how good it was! I truly recommend it! I can't wait to read more of her writings!

This is the second book in this series, after I read the first I had to get the next two. This is a smooth read, with steamy relationships, steady action, interesting characters and exotic locations. I liked the mystical element woven in too. I found the brothers interesting and I really enjoyed how she wrote the books to blend with each other so that you thought everything happen with months as you read each book. I originally discovered this author when I read her Immortals After Dark series, (which are good reads too). It made me hungry for more of her work. I appreciate an author who writes books that are hard to put down and very enjoyable reading.

I really, really enjoyed this one. I thought it was overall steamier than If You Dare. Kresley writes the best sex scenes in romance today. She also has a great talent for making the reader feel as if part of the story. If you haven't tried her earlier historicals and the new paranormals you have to give them a try. Hugh is simply irresistible and he complements Jane perfectly. The chemistry between these two will grab you right from the start. I finished this book in one night, something that rarely happens. I can't wait to see what Kresley has in store for us in If You Deceive. I only wish I could get it today. Great book, great romance, great author!

Wonderful So well written. Kresley Cole is amazing. The MacCarrick Carothers are swoon worthy. Strong female leads, stronger sexy men. Mystery, adventure, danger, passion and a silly curse . Great details, great story, love the series, can't wait to read the next one.

I really love this series but this book was not my favorite. Hugh and Jane were not my favorite characters but it's still a good read and blends well with Ethan's book

Loved the 1st.... loved the 2nd.... on to the third!!! What i like most about this series is... yeah, ok, theres some low racy sex scenes... but u fall for the characters and WANT them to be together.... and feel the desperation they do when they are not. Good job!!!

I was looking for a new book and happened upon this writer by accident...A happy accident....I have in 2 weeks read everything that she has written. Love her style and the male characters are all delicious...This book in particular was such a fun fast read...sucks you in right away, and makes you sorry to flip the last screen....All of her books are Nook worthy.

I've seen her write much better books. I liked the characters but the story kinda skipped around. This story should have flowed much better.

I was hooked on this book within a few pages. As soon as I finished it I moved on to the next in the series. I will definately be looking for others by this author.

I thought this book was disappointing. I loved 'If you Dare' and was looking forward to the next book in this series.... What happened??? I have to say I too felt like I was reading a modern day romance novel. Weak story line and all over the place, I hope the next one is better.

I was disappointed with this novel. Too repetitive. The whole thing didn't work, I thought I was reading something more contemporary than historical.

If You Desire Kresley Cole Pocket, May 2007, $6.99 ISBN: 1416503609 --- After a decade on the job by 1856 Hugh MacCarrick is considered by his superior Lord Weyland as the perfect assassin dangerous situations do not faze him because he has been cursed his affliction is compounded because he loves Jane, the daughter of his boss unattainable to a MacCarrick, who are cursed ¿to walk with death or walk alone¿. Thus he expects something bad to eventually happen to him anyway so he takes risks that no one else would contemplate. --- However, daring Hugh is not prepared for his latest assignment. Lord Weyland asks Hugh to come home from the continent to keep his daughter Jane safe as he believes a former agent turned rogue Davis Grey plans to kill her. Although he has always loved her, Hugh knows she and the other Weyland eight are women he can never have especially now that he is a hardened killer. Once the threat is neutralized, he will leave. However, Jane will not let him go this time her plan is to seduce her beloved so that he will never leave her again as she believes together they can prevent the curse from happening. --- The second MacCarrick Victorian romantic suspense (see IF YOU DARE) is a fabulous thriller that grips readers from the onset as the hero lives life over the edge because he expects the ancient curse to destroy him he believes. Jane is a terrific counterpart to Hugh because she refuses to back down when she must choose between transferring the curse to her and giving up on her beloved. Without love, she feels she has nothing at all (hopefully Tom Jones the singer will not mind my paraphrasing). --- Harriet Klausner

Love Kresley Coles' Immortals After Dark series, and decided to give this series a try. Not nearly as good, and tedious at times. Ended up skipping to the predictable ending.
