By stealth and cunning, the daughter of the Lord High Executioner has undone her father's cruel work, compelled to save the innocent man with her.

Put this book on the top of your TBR pile! Kimberly Killion has brought 15th century England to life in her debut novel, Her One Desire, due out in July from Zebra Books. She writes a splendid romance, imparting factual details with a deft hand. Lizbeth Ives, daughter of King Edward¿s Lord High Executioner, saves a Scottish spy, Broc Maxwell, from certain death at her father¿s hands. They flee across England, pursued by a truly evil villain who conspires to kill the King. Broc must reach the protection of his homeland and take his place as laird of his clan, as well as honor the betrothal plans his father negotiated. Lizbeth seeks to bargain her father¿s soul for the proof she possesses of the conspiracy against the King, knowing she will eventually live within the protection of the church. Ms. Killion makes a fascinating time in history more accessible to the casual reader without overwhelming us with her research. The sexual tension sizzles, while Lizzy and Broc find their way to each other. This book is highly recommended, and the author is one whose future work I eagerly await.

Broderick Maxwell a Scottish Spy is in The Tower being tortured when Lady Lizbeth Ives ¿ the executioner¿s daughter comes bursting through seeking help from her father. A man ¿ Lord Hollister is seeking a document she stole exposing him as an accomplice to treason and murder of King Edward IV. When guards start breaking down the door, Lisbeth escapes with the prisoner into a secret tunnel and away from The Tower. Running for their lives, each with a different agenda. Lisbeth wants to get the document to the Duke Of Gloucester ¿ Broderick¿s nemesis. Broderick wants to get the document to King James so he might align Scotland with France. However, Broderick promises Lizbeth that he will escort to his nemesis and they form a strong and protective bond as they flee England toward Scotland, with Lord Hollister and his guards chasing and tracking their every move. HER ONE DESIRE by debut author Kimberly Killion is what I¿ve been looking for in a medieval novel for a long time. Is it steamy and sensual the fact that they are both engaging and intelligent characters enhances the passion between Broderick and Lizbeth. The secondary characters were also enlightening and often times providing humorous and eye-opening statements that made for a witty trek into Scotland amidst the danger and betrayal surrounding them. I like the fact that Kimberly Killion took a mysterious piece of actual history and wrote a powerful plot while not overpowering the love story or characters with facts and data. There are not many Medieval¿s set in this era anymore and it was refreshing and a nice change of pace that perfectly balanced the good and evil in this story. HER ONE DESIRE went automatically on my keeper shelf, it¿s a novel I¿m sure every Medieval romance fan will devour and cherish for years to come. I also hope the author plans to continue writing about these characters and time period, as I miss them already.

Handsome and strong Broderick Maxwell is held captive in the Tower of London, now Laird to the Maxwell clan, due to his brother¿s death while they both experience the intense torture endured in order to discover important, life-threatening information about their King. In the midst of Broc¿s torture an angel appears that relieves him of his pain, saves his life, and plans his escape. He discovers this beautiful and kind savior to be none other than Lisbeth Ives, the daughter of England¿s Lord High Executioner, the very man responsible for his torture! She pleads for Broc to take her along in the escape, as she has proof that she is keeping to herself about the King being in danger from a powerful Lord close to the King that will also exonerate her father, who has been forced to do his cruel work for many years. Broc is reluctant to take this beauty along for several reasons. The obvious is that she is the executioner¿s daughter whom he blames for his brother¿s death, but also because he is strangely sensually drawn to the kindness and beauty of Lisbeth. When he agrees, they must escape the evil forces chasing them both. Lisbeth and Broc¿s attraction strengthens and grows as their escape plan twists and turns physically and emotionally. Broc is confused about his growing desire and passion for Lisbeth as the new Laid of the Maxwell clan because he knows he must not only honor the betrothal to another lady arranged by his family for his brother and to cling to his clan and brother¿s honor, but he will have to face the clan¿s disapproval for making the High Executioner¿s daughter their laird¿s wife. During their personal struggles and the many evil forces chasing them, Lisbeth, who has grown to deeply love Broc, holds her secrets from him in order to keep him and his clan safe when he returns to Scotland. The story is enticing and grips the reader from the first all the way to the end with secrets, passion and action making this book difficult to put down. Kimberly Killion is a talented debut author to look forward to for many more exciting in-depth stories. She has a keen talent for holding the reader to the story and creating interesting characters of depth, mystery and action like a writer who has written for years. This is a debut writer that has already written a keeper with this debut!

This was a very enjoyable book. I fell in love with the characters right away and I always love a book where the characters meet in the first few pages of the book. You get drawn into Broc and Lizzy's romance right from beginning. Loved this book!
