This is a lovely vintage romance released under a new cover. I really enjoyed this sweet romance between gorgeous Joshua Kent and Holly Carpenter. His eruption into her life changes everything, challenging her in every way and shaking up everything she believed about her life and her family.

As her executor Joshua had to stick close, to make sure Holly's birth mother's wishes were followed. Although they started badly with Joshua pre-judging her and Holly resenting him, it didn't take long for other feelings to emerge.

The is a feel good read with plenty of emotion and chemistry between the hero and heroine.

Imagine opening your door to a sexy stranger coming to deliver news of a death in the family. Or worse you attend the will reading of the deceased and major shock follows ...she was not your aunt by your mother!

This is the start to the fabulous book by one of the best authors of all time. The chemistry and rough moments of some very delightful dialogue between Joshua and Holly was splendid and so much fun to read.

I loved how the author used little tricks here and there to bring these two characters to a fiery duel of romance.

What I especially loved was the mystery behind the identity of Holly's father. It added to the allure of the book and in the end brought it all together for me as reader.

This is one of Liz's earlier books re-released with a new cover. But the book was certainly not old fashioned in any manner, the author still delivered a stunning romance. I was left with a everlasting impression of love found in unexpected places under rather suspenseful and unnerving circumstances bringing forth a revelation of another kind.

The author achieved her goal of awakening desires with a explosive flame !
Nicely done Liz!

4/5 star review

Quite an unexpected book.
Nothing like I have ever read before.
Holly gets an unexpected visit by a very rude man.
This rude man changes the course of her life.
She goes through a series of life changing events and ends up again in a quite unexpected state.
So good!

I really enjoyed this book. You never find out who the father is until the end. I will be reading more of her books.

I loved this book. It was a combination of a romance and hardship between two people. Can't wait to read more books to come.

A vintage Liz Fielding novel which made me realize something interesting. Since returning to reading romance novels several years ago, I've come to understand that Liz Fielding is a romance novelist on top of her craft. Reading this one has made me understand that she's been on top of her craft for a very long time indeed. She knows how to give a reader a good time - to make you laugh, cry and make your heart leap with the very intimate and tender emotions that only new love can bring.

The two main characters, Holly and Joshua quickly become familiar - Holly, a loving, vulnerable young woman who lost her beloved mother in recent years and who has been struggling along as an art teacher and Joshua, cold, forbidding and judgmental. Prejudiced against poor Holly really. Holly's struggle to come to terms with her parentage and the gradual melting of Joshua's prejudice. As the story gradually moves towards the realization of the truth, the reader is right there with her.

Interestingly, the point of view is all Holly's. Unlike many of the romance novels of today, we don't get the male POV. And do you know what? We don't want to either. It's very much Holly's story, and the story of her engagement with the reader.

Highly recommended. A warm, lovely read.

There were several twists in this story that I enjoyed. It was a bit of a slow read that is why I gave a 4 out of 5. But overall a very good Romance novel.

It was a pretty good book,but it just didn't hold my interest. Half way through I got bored. The first part and last part were good, middle not so much.

Old desires is a very beautiful book. Very sensual and smooth and has a wonderful flow and only because it was beautifully written. I commend the author. This was a story about a girl who finds out that her mother is not her mother and her real mother just left her a huge amount of money. It was painful to watch Holly deal with her confusion but wonderful to see Joshua step up and help her through it, going as far as using questionable tactics.

Wonderful characters, fabulous writing, what more do you need. I hate her book covers, because they make the books look like they are taudry, when in fact they are wonderful stories about great characters. I highly recommend it.
