A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.\nWith the smashing success of Lord of Fire and Lord of Ice, Gaelen Foley has confirmed her place as one of historical romance's hottest talents. Now with Lady of Desire, a sizzling tale in which a fiery young temptress tames the king of thieves, she delivers her most enthralling-and smoldering-novel yet. . . .\n\nImpetuous Lady Jacinda Knight is the daughter of a scandalous woman. Though society predicts she'll follow in her mother's footsteps, the spirited beauty stands unashamed of her passionate nature. Then one night, in flight from a safe but loveless marriage arranged by her strict older brother, Jacinda finds herself alone on a dark and dangerous street face-to-face with Billy Blade, the notorious leader of a band of thieves. His stolen kisses awaken in her a longing for a man she can never possess. \n\nA handsome scoundrel running from a secret past, Billy Blade has never met a woman like Jacinda-her fiery innocence and blossoming sensuality set his rebel's heart ablaze. Having turned his back on the privilege and power of his tyrannical father's house years before, he vows to return to his rightful place and reclaim his title, Earl of Rackford-to win the love of the ravishing beauty who has stolen his heart . . .

Jacinda's family are busy trying to arrange a marriage for her, but she has her own opinions on the matter. Her deceased mother caused scandals by taking many lovers in her life, and there are those around Jacinda who aren't always forgiving and willing to taint her with the same brush. Jacinda ignores them, and sneaks out to flee, only to be kidnapped. Luckily, she is saved by a handsome rogue pirate, going by the name of 'Billy Blade.' He is unlike the men of her acquaintance, who are usually dressed as gentlemen do. Billy looks the pirate, and acts it too. She is especially drawn to his tattoos.
After her rescue, the duo get closer, until he realises who she is, and decides to return her to her family. She tries to move on, but 'Billy' is still in her head...
The presumed dead William Albright, the Earl Of Rackford is in fact Billy Blade. Having ran away from his abusive father and home as a teenager, William ended up as a pickpocket and working for Cullen O'Dell. But when he realised Cullen wasn't treating him and his fellow thieves/friends as well as they should, he decided to make a stand. Fast forward fifteen years, and Billy is trying to deal with O'Dell, who is out to kill him, whilst trying to help save his friends. But then something happens, which makes Billy realise he must ensure Billy dies, and it is time to bring Rackford back from the dead. He's also determined to claim Jacinda as his bride, and sets out to reclaim his birthright, and learn how to be a gentleman again.
Despite Rackford trying to move on, he cannot forget O'Dell, and decides to become Billy again...
Overall, the book was ok. It started well, but after about 300 pages, I felt the author could have ended it sooner. The rest seemed drawn out, and didn't add anything that was useful.
