STORY: Only Her Desire…
After losing his wife in childbirth, Colin Barrett, Duke of Northrop, does not trust healers. So when he discovers Selina White cleansing his home, he is livid. As duke, Colin is accustomed to his charges taking orders from him. But the fiery Selina has the audacity to defy him when he asks her to leave his lands. More infuriating, he cannot stop thinking about the seductive sway of her hips when she walks.
Can Heal His Heart…
The sick tenants of Northrop Park depend on Selina, and she’s not about to let a man tell her she must leave her village—even if he is a duke. And while Selina does not fear Colin’s temper, she is afraid of the secrets she keeps from him and of the desire he sets off in her every time he is near.
REVIEW: This was another story that I had a hard time getting into, so I kept putting it down. The writing didn’t have the feel of a “historical” story. A lot of the writing felt more “contemporary” to me.
Also, like I keep saying, if I’m not connecting with the main characters, you’ve lost me. I was hoping that at least the plot or the setting might save this story, but even there I was let down.
I’d have to say, I read it so you won’t have to.
