Sensually spiced with a heavy dose of passion, "Desperate Desires" by Terri Wolffe comes complete with a memorable cast of characters. You won’t want to put this one down! The cunningly audaciousLady Lucinda Davenport is by no means a conventional woman. Smart and fiercely determined, she’s more comfortable adding numbers than she’ll ever be socializing with highfalutin members of the ton. When desperate straits force her into action to save her home and lands, she finds herself faced with only one option. Summoning every ounce of her courage, she sets in motion a wild and raunchy scheme that would set the ton on fire if they ever caught wind of her actions.

Lucien Brandford, fourth Duke of Carlsborough, is a dangerous man. Wealthy beyond imagination and handsome to a fault, the Duke is sought after by nearly every woman of the ton. Single, widowed, or married, ladies vie for his attention with cutthroat precision. But the Duke has no tolerance for the machinations of his title and fortune-hungry peers. He seeks his pleasure from women who require no commitment. The sensual dance that follows between captor and captive as they engage in a volatile battle for control, culminates in a seismic eruption—both psychological and sensual. As tempers flare and sparks fly, an intense and erotic interlude of passion ensues.

Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views (2/11)

In London, England, in 1796, beautiful and feisty Lucinda is about to become a widow. Her much older wealthy husband is in ill health.  Fearing that his devious relatives will try to step in and take everything from her, because there is no heir, Lucinda has hatched a plan to solve this dilemma.  Enlisting the aid of her loyal servants and her giant brother, she sets out to kidnap the Duke Lucien Douglas IV.  The success of this mission is critical to all who are involved because the estate of the Lucinda’s husband is home to all of them. 

Wise to the ways of the world, Lucien is extremely surprised to discover himself so easily kidnapped.  Initially he is angry and resistant to the idea of helping Lucinda, especially when he learns her criteria for choosing him.  When he finds himself unable to resist her charms, he quickly changes his mind.  Caught up in their desire for each other, they seem to forget all else.  When Lucinda’s allies step in to help bring them back to reality, they find themselves lost to each other.  It is now Lucien’s mission to find Lucinda.

“Desperate Desires” perfectly blends erotica, romance and humor.  I found the whole eccentric cast of characters to be endearing.  The sensual scenes are beautifully written and extremely erotic.  I think most readers will find themselves wishing that they could be in Lucinda’s shoes.  I guess I shouldn’t say “shoes” because she certainly wasn’t wearing any in the most intense scenes.  Terri Wolffe definitely managed to capture my attention with this tale.  I highly recommend "Desperate Desires" to readers who enjoy erotic romances.
