I read Ms. Montgomery's first novel, Rules of Engagement, with great enjoyment. I didn't want Art of Desire to end. The Art of Desire is an out and out winner. I've been away from the romance genre for a while, but Selena Montgomery's work encourages me to revist that missed section of the bookstore. This was a well written, engaging read from front to back. I was able to see the characters and the action vividly and convincingly. Alex Walton is no simpering, mindless wall flower; instead, she's an alive, vibrant, intelligent woman. And Phillip Turman does more than play the stereotypical tall, dark, and handome hero who saves the day. I cheered for the love that Alex and Phillip found in one another. I wanted to see more of the couple and share in their further adventures. What better way to leave your readers than wanting more? Selena Montgomery delivers, and how.Was this review helpful?

Selena Montgomery artfully weaves together romance with suspense in her book The Art of Desire. The beautiful Alex Walton is an artist/aspiring writer who has sworn off men after numerous of failed relationships. She excitedly begins her new journey and does not expect to get sidetracked. Then enters the handsome Phillip Thurman. Phillip Thurman is an agent who was semi-retired until hired to protect the intriguing Alex Walton. Phillip and Alex are both battling old wounds, but their attraction sparks from the moment they meet at the airport. Not only is Phillip struggling to protect her from possible terrorists, but he also struggles to protect his heart. Alex is unaware of her immediate danger and the suspense starts before they leave the airport grounds. One event after another finally lands them overseas, where Phillip and Alex battle over the truth. Phillip hones in on all of his agent skills in his attempt to save Alex¿s life. His greatest fear is losing her, like he lost his ex-fiance. This romantic suspense is craftily written. Some of these characters overlap from a previous Montgomery novel, Rules of Engagement and the reader is not left disappointed. If the next book is as good as these two were, then she will have another hit on her hands.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Selena Montgomery is a prolific writer. The Art of Desire was like watching a movie that you do not want to end. Ms. Montgomery writes a very realistic story of two potential lovers, playing cat and mouse. I loved Alex, she was my favorite character. Alex was strong, but not to strong and I truly look forward to reading more of Ms Montgomery's work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
