Book Description

"...a winning combination of sex, sweetness, and bite." - Dear Author

Keith Logan has something that Sarah Harper wants, and he's going to use it to get what he wants.

Her.

All his life, Keith's money and good looks were enough to charm anyone--except for shy, beautiful Sarah. Back in high school she was the one girl he couldn't have, and the one girl who haunted his dreams. When he sees her again for the first time in ten years, he knows he'll do anything to make her his--even if it's just for one week.

There's only one flaw in his plan. With a woman like Sarah, one week will never be enough.

By His Desire is a steamy romance novella of 20,000 words.

EXCERPT

Keith shook his head. "Whatever good opinion you might have about me, I'm about to destroy it."

Sarah stared at him. "What are you talking about? How?"

"With the offer I'm about to make you."

"What offer?"

He leaned forward across the table. "The museum has the portrait for one more week. When the week is up, I'll have the painting delivered to you. It will be yours."

"No, Keith. I told you I don't want your charity."

"This isn't charity. Don't you want to hear my price?"

She sat back in her chair and folded her arms. "Fine."

"In exchange, for one week, you'll live with me in my house. During the day, you can do whatever you want. There's a gym, an indoor pool, a library, a home theater. There's a study where you can write, and I have a chef who'll cook you anything you want to eat. But at night..." he paused for a moment. "At night, you have to do whatever I want."


Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Kate Grey believes a good love story should make you sigh and a good love scene should make you squirm--in the best possible way. Her dream is to find the perfect balance between romantic and sexy, and since she's fairly certain she'll never reach that goal, she's probably going to be writing for a long, long time. She's currently working on her fourth book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done erotic romance short story June 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"By His Desire" is a short story about a man and a woman who went to HS together and had a secret crush on one another, though neither one knew that the other shared their feelings. Sarah believed that she was "invisible" to Keith, who was the rich, popular guy, and Keith believed Sarah hated his guts. Of course, none of that was true, and that was more than proven when they reconnect several years later, when a portrait of Sarah that her father did was sold and the buyer turned out to be Keith.

Though some may complain that this short story was "too short" (I always find that complaint about short stories rather amusing, though it does bother me when people "penalize" a short story for being short), I think that Ms. Grey did a very good job. For me, characters are the first element that I absolutely have to appreciate in any story, in order for me to be able to say "this is a good read" of whatever it is that I am reading at any given time, irrespective of length. I found myself truly liking both Keith and Sarah, so off the bat, I knew I was going to likely enjoy the book.

Regarding the love story itself, I didn't think that their falling in love was "forced" in any way, since they both had been halfway there after all, during their high school years, and despite the fact that their lives had taken completely separate turns... until they met again because of a portrait and the striking of a "deal" that would bring them together.

I found the pacing adequate for a short story, and of course, the ending was sweet, so that is a big bonus for me, as I do read to escape reality, and this short story definitely proved to be a nice contemporary-set fantasy ideal for that purpose. The sex scenes, as I see it, were well written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful short story! June 16, 2012
By Delilah

This short story was filled with romance, as well as anticipation. I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen each evening between Sarah and Keith. Like others, I only wish the story was LONGER.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, not enough to it June 23, 2012
By t
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a good story and I think had the possibility of being a great story. It just never made it for me. I liked Keith, but felt his character could have been flushed out a bit more. Plus, if he was that dominant, I had a hard time imagining him falling to pieces just because of a good BJ. Sarah seemed almost personality-less. I could never truly get a read on her.

I think it it had been lengthened, if we had truly gotten to know each of the characters a bit more, it would have gone up to 4 stars. If the sex scenes would have been more intense, then 5 stars.

The only character to me that really popped was Keith's secretary. I could imagine her clearly.

There seemed to be a lot of telling and not enough showing. Showing will help your reader get more in touch with the characters.

Will keep an eye on this author though - definitely has potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy billionaire. July 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is one of the better billionaire stories that have been circulating since the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon. It's about unrequited young love and that always makes a good read. The puppy moment was the cutest, but you will have to read it to find out.

Another high recommendation.

4.0 out of 5 stars good short story April 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This one is really pretty short...it's like a morsel of a story. The writing is good, the characters are just enough, and the sex is steamy. I just wish it was longer and more developed.
