Overview

A BARNES AND NOBLE OVERALL TOP 15 AND AN AMAZON TOP 50 EROTICA BESTSELLER!

Shy and innocent Liz Turner is trying to pay for college, and moonlights as a maid in a swanky hotel. But when a devastatingly handsome stranger barges into the men’s restroom she’s trying to clean – despite the NO ENTRY sign she has put at the door – it’s like kismet.

Violent sparks ignite the libido she never knew she had, and suddenly, he’s seducing her against the wall. Breathless and guilty, he leaves. She never expects to see him again, until she finds out that he is Alexander Vassar – half-American entrepreneur, Harvard graduate . . . and a European crown prince who is engaged to be married to someone else.

But Alex seems to mysteriously desire her and only her. Liz cannot understand it. Does he truly want her or is there an ulterior motive behind it all that will shatter her confidence and rapidly succumbing heart?

MYSTERIOUS DESIRE is a 16,000-word erotic romance novelette.

READ AN EXCERPT


No one can fall in love at first sight. It's always lust. Some animal attraction that implodes you. But here it is. And I don't want to think it's just lust. I can't seem to get up. My knees have turned to shaky pudding. My insides have melted.

No, not lust. It's kismet.

Like I've just met my karmic soul-mate.

With a couple of steps, he's at my side.

"Hey, you all right?"

His warm hands are touching my arm, my shoulders, buoying me up. His touch on my skin is electric. I feel flushed all of a sudden, and I definitely feel faint.

I rise shakily to my feet, his arms holding mine. Up close, his face is breathtaking. His skin is incredibly clear and soft, and my lungs are completely depleted of air. The air between us is as thick as molasses.

We are facing one another - very close. His beautiful face swims in my vision, and his warmth seeps into me. Those wonderful lips curl in a knowing smile, and before I can tell what is happening - they close in onto mine.

Oh my God.

I think I've just spontaneously combusted.

Air is stoppered in my throat as his lips meld against mine. His lips are pliant and oh-so-nuanced. I can't even believe this kiss is happening (and why oh why would he be kissing me?) and for a stretched moment, I'm too terrified to kiss back. Not that I remember how to kiss in this petrified moment. My brain is so hollow and numb that I can only be but a receptacle.

The pressure of his lips intensifies, and I can feel his hands going round to my back, and he's oh-so-warm, and he's groping for something on my back.

(it's my uniform's zipper.)

(Oh my G - )

Without missing a beat, he unzips my maid's uniform - a plain black dress with white trimmings. And all this while, he doesn't stop kissing me. And he's parting his lips and his tongue is darting out, and they are parting mine, and I'm letting him roam inside my mouth - that lovely warm wet sweetness of his mouth - and he smells like mints and aftershave and expensive everything. And oh, oh, he's removing his mouth from my lips and placing little wet kisses on my chin, and neck, and down my neck . . . and throat . . . and his hands are parting the two halves of my dress at the back -

And he's pushing me into the stall I just cleaned

(why is he doing this? What can he possibly want with me?)

But now I'm fully engaged. My hormones are running berserk and I'm really into this now. I'm lusting as I've never lusted before, and by all accounts, so is he. He's rougher now with my clothes, and he tears my dress off, and it catches on my hips, but he rips it down anyway.

Editorial Reviews

Desuvius Amazon
Artemis Hunt has managed to dramatically re-tell every girl's fantasy in a modern setting. Mysterious Desire is a beautifully written piece of erotic romance with feelings that gush out the pages, just as powerfully as the tasteful lust that's bound up in this tale. Five stars.
Ellen Beaucoup
Let me tell you, if you loved 50 Shades you will fall heads over heals in love with Mysterious Desire. Dashing prince, Alexander Vassar and college student/hotel maid Elizabeth Turner are every bit as hot as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. The big difference with this book is that Ms. Hunt is actually a superb writer. You will not find the after-a-while-annoying repetitions that prevailed across the Fifty Shades trilogy. The sex scenes are hot, hot, hot.

    This story is an absolute delight. I loved the way Hunt took the billionaire fad and added her own unique twist. This is a Princely story for the modern age with realistic characters and a strong voice.

    It's part of a series, but you'll be hungry for more after the first installment.

    Actually pretty good

    A slightly different spin than the usual, and despite the author's moment of attempting to steer you down the path of not judging others, it is a pretty good book. She doesn't give you a solid ending, and could pick it up pretty easily in another book.

    An ok Trashy romance novel

    I picked this book after reading the Fifty shades series , do not buy this if you are looking for something like that. This book is alright if your into trashy erotica novels, the love story was like "maid in manhattan" movie. I would not read it again . If you enjoy short books and are looking for something to read when you have nothing to do then this is the book for it if you like these shorts of books. I will say though after you read this you might be left wanting to read the 2nd book of the series just out of curiosity .

    Very Good

    The story was very good, just didn't care for how it ended, I would've like to know how things developed between them. Maybe she will write another book to continue their romance.

    Too Fanciful

    I couldn't get into the story, plus it is one of those installment books. These are basically a rip off in my opinion.

    129 pgs?

    I get the desire to have a series...but seriously, I was not hooked into this storyline in a 129 pgs, when a good 3rd of it was s.e.x.. If the other 3 books are this short, not fully understanding why they can't be one book. I didn't get a good enough feel for the story or the people to make me want to continue. Glad it was only 99 cents!

    At least it was short

    Rather a strange interlude with an unknown person, and thankfully a quick, short read. Won't waste another dollar on this author.
