I like the cover to this, thought I'd point that out. I like that Lucinda's hair is a brilliant contrast to the sheets and her skin. The red hair is a fairly important attribute since its not an 'ordinary' color paired with her eyes in the story.

The synopsis is what caught my attention. It doesn't mention a few pertinent details (she's married), and some of what it talks about is glossed over in the novella itself (there's really no indication of her dislike or interest in the ton). Where the story really shined was in portraying the seductive dance that Lucien and Lucinda engage in. They're powerfully attracted to each other from the first, there's no doubt on that. Even while being abducted Lucien had control over how quickly lust hit him and Lucinda was oggling him quite a bit.

Wolffe draws out Lucinda's reasons and story, which frustrated me at times as much as it did Lucien. She'd let little tidbits fall, but other then vague indications of what was happening there was nothing until around the middle of the story. Truth be told the excuse Lucinda uses is rather flimsy and Lucien cuts through that logic pretty quickly. As far as plot device needed to keep them in bed as often as possible, it worked quite well, but logically it was ridiculously flawed.

I was also rather skeptical about several plot turns. Maybe I'm just too naive and innocent in the ways of the bedroom, but can you honestly go a couple days without remembering to eat or drink and do nothing but make love? And later Lucinda's husband seems to go from 'this is what I want' to 'jealous rage' (which is acceptable and understandable all things given) but then...the ending. Wolffe didn't show us, or even hint to us, how Lucien and the husband finally came to some arrangement.

Lady Lucinda Davenport has come up with a brilliant plan to save her husband's family from taking her estate after his death - get pregnant and produce an heir. This is a great plan and would work except her husband is not well and unable to provide her with what she needs to make this happen. The backup idea is even better, kidnap a man who has no interest in a relationship and have him impregnate her. Wait that is the best backup plan you have?

Lucinda handpicked Lucien Brandford, fourth Duke of Carlsborough to help her with her goal and his past should make this easy to accomplish. He has a reputation about London for only having an interest in what money can be produced not heirs. Lucinda plotted and executed the perfect plan and before Lucien recovered from the drugs he had been given he finds himself shackled to a bed and a woman trying to seduce him. Lucien did not like Lucinda's idea when she told him what was going on but Lucy presented a really convincing case to him and it helped that at the time she was naked.

The affair they begin is racy, hot and over the top passionate with one man determined to show one woman every bit of life's pleasure that she has missed. They begin to trust, learn to whisper secrets in the dark and once freed from his restraints Lucien shows Lucinda how much a man can give to a woman who is yearning for carnal knowledge.

This book is about discovering who you are deep down inside where you keep your thoughts private and your desires to yourself. When Lucien and Lucinda get together they realize that there are not enough nights to quench their need for one another. Their story while not conventional is extremely enjoyable.

This sweet and spicy romance was a very pleasant story to read. I liked the Lucinda's determination as she does what she feels necessary to save her home. Also, I don't think there could possibly be a hotter romantic hero than Lucien Brandford.

Their relationship gets off to a very rocky start when she kidnaps him. She wants to seduce him and have his baby. Her husband is old and ill and in danger from his greedy relatives. A baby will provide her husband an heir and will protect the estate that they both love. Her husband saved her when she was a needy child and she will do anything to protect him.

Lucinda is surprised by her feelings for Lucian. She hadn't thought that her emotions would become involved. Her plan didn't allow for any emotional involvement. The passion between them immediately ruins her well-planned scheme.

Lucian is reluctant at first to go along with her plans. However, he is soon convinced to do anything to help her. The love scenes are very hot. Readers will need the air conditioning on and an icy beverage to sip while reading them.

Fans of erotic romances will be very satisfied by this novella.

Rush into the breathless erotic Regency world in romance author Terri Wolfe's contagiously enticing novella, DESPERATE DESIRES which take readers on a scandalous peril of kidnapping intrigue and the desperate desires of an untamable love.

There is nothing like a strung conning unconventional female lead in a romance book. Lady Lucinda Davenport is that in spades. She is more comfortable running her estate manner and dealing with numbers than to be bothered with the ton. There is only one thing she needs desperately and Lucien Brandford, fourth Duke of Carlsborough is just the sort of man she needs. Her and her feisty band of hooligans set out to entrap, kidnap and persuade him to Lucinda's way of thinking.

All right I confess, the kidnapping scene had me giggling. Even though the Duke was severely outraged he was more than a little excited to be in this Lady of Deceptions presence.
Lady Lucinda was a wonderfully entertaining character to read because she is unique in knowing what she goes for what she wants without apologizing for her tactics in achieving her goal. She is a well-rounded character that had me laughing at her antics. There were moments that I felt for her plight being married to a lord on the cusp of dying with known heir in sight. If she didn't succeed in seducing Lucien and bearing an heir the estate would slip through her fingers.
Lucien Brandford, the fourth Duke of Carlsborough is exceedingly dashing and is quite swoon worthy. He is a damaged and tortured soul(my favorite kind) who loved and lost abysmally. Now he finds himself a prisoner to a red haired beauty that not only stirs his blood like no other but his heart as well.

I adored the fact that Lucinda and Lucien succumb so fast to the mutual desires so fast.
