[ Review Posted: Oct 15, 2012 ] - See all my reviews
When two young girls flee their childhood home in search of protection, they never thought they would find their heart's desire in the wilds of Scotland.

Isabel Comyn's mother died without telling anyone save her maid Agnes who really fathered Isabel, and now her maid has succumbed to death without telling anyone the long buried secret. Isabel Comyn has no one left in this world. No one save her cousin Daracha Comyn, who has been like a sister to her. But when Daracha overhears her father's—Isobel's uncle—plans to marry his niece, they realize their uncle Lachlan is more evil than they even thought.

In the company of her cousin and the stable hand Rory Macpherson, who happens to be from a warring clan, the three of them concoct a plan to keep Isabel safe. Masquerading as Daracha, Isabel marries the second son of Clan Leslie—Douglas Leslie. When they begin to fall in love immediately after meeting, it just makes it that much harder for Isabel to tell Douglas the truth of who she really is. But how can she tell him something when she does not understand all of it herself? Why on earth would her uncle, who has loathed her since birth, want to marry her?

When Lachlan learns of his daughter's treachery, he fashions a union with a neighboring clan to get his intended bride back. After learning Isabel's true parentage, that she stands to inherit the whole of Scotland, he intends to marry the future Queen of Scotland and have all and more that was ripped away from him years ago.

HEART'S DESIRE is full of warring Scottish clans dating back to Robert the Bruce, dashing clansmen in tartans, and above all a sensual, sweet love story of two people who will stop at nothing to be together again. I thoroughly enjoyed reading these 268 pages, in fact I really couldn't stop. There is nothing like a good old-fashioned Scottish love story. I really did not want it to end; it had the perfect dose of everything a romance story should have.

A heart torn apart. Ethan's vigilante plan for justice just got a sexy wrinkle...

Their little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation.
