Not Only a Steamy Romance, but History Too,
By A Customer
This review is from: Desired (Mass Market Paperback)
"Desired" has something for everybody--fans of steamy loves scenes will find them in plentiful supply; fans of medievals will find tournaments, battles, and plenty of political scullduggery; fans of historicals will find some plausible (if not 100% accurate) information on that great English house, the Plantagenets. The love story, of course, takes precedence, and it has all of the misunderstandings, the longing looks, the fights and reconciliations, and the intimate wranglings anyone could ask for. So why don't I rate it a 10? For one, I found myself laughing during some of the sex scenes (I won't go in to details) and for another, I found the heroine a stubborn brat for most of the book. It's all well and good for a heroine to be stunningly beautiful, extremely talented, and kind to animals, but when she is annoyingly dense and rude about a perfectly good hero, I feel nothing but annoyed.
