Secret Desires is the absolutely perfect romance novel to bring to the beach, read on a rainy spring day, or cuddle up with during a blizzard. Margo and Edward are beautifully drawn through J.L.Regen's simple, yet strong, prose. Margo, a giving, yet ambitious young woman; Edward, a successful, yet sensitive widower. Can Margo balance her desire for a career with her passion for Edward? Will Edward be able to accept that Margo desires more than him and his money? Indeed, does his wealth play into her needs at all? The novel's romantic scenes are titillating, true to life and not the least bit overdone. Sexy and subtle, not salacious. The supporting characters are nicely portrayed, too, especially Margo's mother, and even Edward's deceased wife. I look forward to reading more from this author.
