Marguerite Spencer is lovely, penniless and very alone. Her father's recent death leaves her homeless, at the mercy of an aunt in Scotland whose own disappointed love has turned to hatred.
David Enderby, the brutal son of her father's dishonest business partner, has set his sights on Marguerite, who refused him while her father was still alive. The day of her father's funeral, his hatred and decision to marry or ruin her nearly results in disaster.
Marguerite looks up to see the man who has saved her: deep blue eyes, a shock of golden hair and a quiet voice that belies his physical strength. His shoulders are broad enough to carry any burden, and his eyes show a steady heart. But he is of another class.
Falling deeply in love, the two cannot make a suitable match. Will love triumph over society's strict rules about who marries whom?
Set in the Scottish moors and the fanciful Regency spa town of Brighton, Impossible Desire holds the reader with danger, wit, adventure and passion.

About the Author
Born in Savannah, Georgia of a French mother and Creole father, Beatrice Bechonne knew from early childhood that she wanted to be a writer. Early heartbreak and the passion for adventure led her to romance writing, but because her father frowned on it, Beatrice renounced her natural tendencies and attempted to write "practical" books on ordinary topics. But things have a way of working out, and when her parents divorced, she learned it was because her fathera pragmatic, down-to-earth personhad fallen deeply in love with a nun from the local convent. Soon after, Sister Angelique left her nunnery and Jean-Paul Bechonne confessed to his wife, who let him go with the gracious sadness of one who believes that love will come again. Beatrice realized then that romance is essential, and her first book, "Impossible Desire" was born.
