Book Description


Emotional sensuality...Regency style.

Three very different siblings. Three powerful secrets. Three stories of love, passion and betrayal that will span the seas from the West Indies to Regency Era England.


Thea might have been born a lady, but she's lived a life of freedom as a simple miss in the West Indies, unbound by the strictures of her title or straight-laced Regency England. She's unlike any woman Pierson Drake has ever met, but he finds her innocent sensuality irresistible.
The illegitimate son of a duke with no claim on the title, Pierson Drake maintains a level of honor most in the ton only give lip-service to. He is determined to make a name for himself and will stop at nothing to keep what he claims for his own.

Thrown together on a voyage back to England, Drake finds Thea's innocent sensuality irresistible. She's unlike any woman he's ever known. Passion flares between them with enough heat to burn the best of intentions to ash, and once they share a bed for the first time, there's no going back.

But Thea's secrets are a heavy burden. With her life hanging in the balance after a devastating betrayal, Drake must take any risk to protect her, and the hope for their future. They have one chance to get it right. . .

Editorial Reviews


The story was immaculately presented, true to the period and well edited. The characters were fascinating and make the reader want to know more of their story. The plot was well constructed, with nothing to jar the reader out of the story. The conflict and resolution was handled well and there were no loose ends. 5 Stars - Loves Romance

Lucy Monroe has once again captured the essence of love and put that into a book that will keep you glued to your seat. Touch Me is the perfect title for this tender romance. 5 Stars ~ A Romance Review
~ ~ ~ 
TOUCH ME is an extremely romantic story. Drake is a manly man who knows what he wants and takes it. Thea is a headstrong woman who fights for what she believes in. Their journey to the altar is a passionate one and with every breakthrough Drake makes, you'll cheer his success. I really liked this story a lot. - Fresh Fiction
~ ~ ~ 
The story line is character driven as the cast especially the support players vividly brings out England, the West Indies, and to a lesser degree sailing the Atlantic in 1820. Fans of historical tales will want to journey with Lucy Monroe as her wonderful tale will touch readers hearts, making them look forward to future passages starring the heroine's half-sister and twin. 9 out of 10 - Harriet Klausner
~ ~ ~ 
Thea and Drake are compelling characters. The resolution of the embezzling plot had a great twist that I enjoyed, as did Thea's confrontation with her father. There are two more Regency-set novels to follow about Thea's brother and sister. I'm looking forward to them. - Rakehell Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars a powerhouse of emotion and sensuality October 2, 2005
By D. Lane
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Thea and Pierson were both wounded, intriguing, complex, wonderful characters. The action/suspense was fast-paced and thrilling. The sex was HOT and perfect for the story. Not only it offers sufficient romance to the end of the book, the characterization, humour, suspense are perfectly blended in a page turner. It is sometimes shock, sometimes hilarious and sometimes sexy. Absolutely highly recommended and one of the best in the genre. I absolutely loved this book. The author has a great gift in her ability to develop characters. Lucy Monroe writing instantly puts you into the scene. She has a good feel for the period, strong, engaging characters. This was just the kind of romance novel I love. Wonderful characters. Characters that seems real because they are not perfect-something most novels like this lack. The relationship between the leads is endearing. I found the characters to be multi-dimensional and the author weaves a mystery into the story without slowing it down or interrupting the romantic flow. The love scenes are ample & steamy, and the plot is a good one. A fast paced book with an intricate plot that I cannot help but enjoy. The interaction between the leads was great. I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series.

Thea is my kinda girl - outspoken, unafraid to speak her piece, even if it's not the most popular opinion, and willing to take care of herself. She doesn't need a man to protect her. Her relatives have already taught her all she needs to know, maybe even more than they realized. But she eventually finds out that a girl sometimes needs a man, for reasons other than protection. And she finds out that even tough girls like her, need a little tender care.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Romance September 27, 2005
By Judy
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lucy Monroe takes the reader back to 1797 England in the beautiful story called Touch Me.

Thea Selwyn was raised in the exotic West Indies. Her mother had fled England with her when Thea was a small child. She has enjoyed vast freedoms there that her counterparts in England did not. Thea's openness, love of life and beauty cause a stir in Pierson Drake.

Pierson offers Thea and her maid passage back to England on his ship. There Thea is determined to get to the bottom of who is stealing from her uncles and her shipping company. When someone tries to harm Thea, Drake refuses to leave her side and aids in her quest. During the voyage and in England Thea and Drake succumb to the all-consuming passion they share.

Thea learned on her mother's knee how men and marriage are not for her. Drake has his work cut out for him to convince Thea to take a chance and risk her heart.

Touch Me is an exceptional novel. The emotions are deep and compelling, its sexy and wonderfully romantic. It's a gem. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Read!!! September 20, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ms. Monroe has created a very good read with the first in a series titled "Touch Me." Exotic locations, unusual characters, and great chemistry combined into a read that will entertain.

Thea is not your typical woman. She thinks for herself, does for herself, and can't be bothered with what others think of her. A trust issue tore her family apart and now she finds that she must go back to England to investigate a possible theft from her shipping company. Her chance to sail for England come at the hands of handsome Pierson Drake. From the get go these two spark energy off of each other. It's only a matter of time before the spark kindles a flame. Now neither of them can deny the attraction, but each has a well protected heart and is shy about laying that heart open. Will these two wounded people find the love that they each doesn't think exist with each other?

This was a good book. Thea is a modern day woman in many of her thought processs' but Ms. Monroe still manages to keep to the time period despite this. The fact that both Thea and Pierson have issues does prevent this story from reaching a natural conclusion any earlier than it already does. This despite being a tad frustrated a few times this read did manage to entertain. I look forward to the next in the series which is titled "Tempt Me."

3.0 out of 5 stars Touch Me September 12, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
False accusations of infidelity tore a family apart three years ago. When Anna Selwyn gives birth to twins, her husband angrily takes the boy away from her, but does not realize a daughter was also born. To save the girl from growing up under his heavy rule, Anna sends little Thea away. She grows up to be a strong and independent woman who longs to know more about her English family. When the chance to go back to England arises in the form of Pierson Drake, she takes it. The sea captain can only repair his ship if Thea will allow it, and she will only allow it if he takes her to England from her home in the West Indies. Grudging agreement blossoms into passion on the high seas, but Thea refuses to marry him, even to save her reputation. Drake will have to overcome her fear of strong men to win her heart. But first, Thea must make peace with the past.

*** Placing a slightly different spin on standard concepts and weaving them all together into an engaging, yet lightweight read, Ms. Monroe has created a story her fans will love. ***
