Publisher's Summary

Upon her father's death, beautiful, headstrong Lady Clare knew that she must wed, for the protection of the Isle of Desire now fell to her. Yet when her guardian's choice of prospective husband rode through her castle gates, she felt utterly betrayed. All sinewy muscle and savage steel, Sir Gareth of Wyckmere was not the poet she'd requested but a fearsome knight whose only interest was in war.

Legions of robbers had fallen beneath the Hellhound of Wyckmere's sword, and now this bold warrior was certain that he could tame one willful wife. Yet even Gareth could not deter Lady Clare from trying to mold him into her ideal...until their clash of wills ignited a passion that set them both aflame...and a treacherous plot put their lives in deadly peril.

She's Back!

I used to think no one could write a sizzling love scene the way Amanda Quick did, but had given up on her as her books seemed to be getting quite "tepid". She proved me wrong with this one. The story line is predictable, but isn't that what we want from these types of romance novels? Keep em coming Amanda!

Excellent! Amanda Quick at her best!

I love these stories, it is true to her formula and Anne Flosnik is amazing. The story is sweet and an easy listen. As usual it leaves you waiting for the next book of its style.

Entertaining!

"Desire" is a cute love story about a landless Knight and the Lady of Desire who, not interested in marriage, must marry after her father and brother were killed. Writing to her guardian, Lord Wyckmere , she requested a poet, a man of average size, What she got was Sir Gareth Wyckmere, the bastard son of her guardian; a huge man of sinewy muscle and savage steel.

It was a humorous tale of a headstrong Lady and a fearsome Knight known as the :Hellhound of Wyckmere".

It's a light, enjoyable story, well narrated by Anne Flosnik.

All time favorite

I read this book at least 3 times a year. I love it so much. I treasure this audio recording, and I look forward to listening to it as many time as I read this book every year.

My favorite Amanda Quick book!

I have read/listened to several Amanda Quick books and always enjoy them. This is is my favorite so far. I love both of the characters and the position they find themselves in. The story line was great and kept my attention. I didn't want to stop listening and finished the book in a day and a half.

The narration was good. Flosnik has done several books I have listened too and generally does a very good job. Sometimes she lays on the drama a little heavy, but I would much rather have that than a flat performance. This was one of her best performances.

the lady and the knight

Independently minded lady is being sold off to an unknown knight with a dangerous reputation who really wants what's being offered. Good breezy read.

Not one of her best...

I have almost all of Amanda Quick's earlier books from several of her different series. That being said I didn't understand why I didn't already have this book. So, I used a credit to purchase this and just couldn't finish it. I fell asleep twice trying to listen to it. The female lead character was suppose to be intelligent but she was so irritating and wouldn't listen to anyone's advice. The storyline started out promising and the narrator was good, but it was so slow. There was not much romance, intrigue or action as with a typical AQ book. Not worth a credit!

looking back 20 years - my how the author has grow

While there were a few surprises. this story followed the tried and true formula. i love Amanda Quick and probably read this when it first came out but it wasn't satisfying this time. i didn't care fir the reader. nade a melodrama even more melodramatic
