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.

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.
