Review for Lord Of Desire

Reviewer Comments: Ms. Quinn's debut effort is amazing!!! This story is perfect blending of historical detail, suspense, and romance. The end result...an enthralling read with larger than life characters and a very sweet romance.

Lord Brand Risande is known as "The Passionate" he loves life, and revels in it. But, a betrayal cuts him deep. The woman that he loved is caught with another man, but not just any man, a man that Brand calls friend. He gave his heart away once, he won't do it again. Even when he is commanded to marry Lady Brynna in order to avoid more bloodshed. But, what this tough knight doesn't realize is that Brynna knows him, and has loved him since she first set eyes upon him swimming in a lake a year earlier. Will this tough lady be able to scale the walls around his heart?

Brynna can't believe that her father lost a battle and that her home is going to the winner. She is shocked when her merman shows up with his brother and Duke William of Normandy. Despite her plans on avoiding marriage to the barbarian she can't help but be drawn to this wounded knight. She has feelings for him that she can't ignore. She has decided that anything worth having is worth fighting for. Brand is worth the pain...even when Colette the lady that hurt Brand shows up looking for a safe haven. Will they find a happy ending or will the plottings of royality conspire to keep these lovers apart?

This was a well written romance with amazing chemistry between our main characters. Secondary characters such as Dante, Brand's brother and Duke William of Normandy are wonderful additions to this romance. I truly look forward with great anticipation for the next book "Lord of Temptation" which, is Dante's story. In the meantime I highly recommend this debut effort. Ms. Quinn is going to be a shining star in the future I'm sure.

Review for Lord Of Desire

Reviewer Comments: Setting – England, 1065 A.D. --- A year ago Lady Brynnafar Dumont had fallen in love. She had come upon a man cavorting in the water, so enjoying himself and whose beauty and zest for life and living was so miraculous to her eyes, she could only think of him as a merman. Watching him she also saw a woman join him and how he adored the beautiful blonde angel he welcomed and wished that someday she would would be the object of such love and devotion. Instead, today she waited for the reputed cold-blooded Norman beast that had defeated her father in battle and was coming to wrest her beloved home from them. It was said he had no heart - a betrayal had sealed his heart and encased it in ice – leaving only a savage warrior who gloried in the kill. It shocked Brynna to discover, that the beast was he - the merman that had haunted her dreams all this time.

That beautiful sensually handsome man was Lord Brand Risande – known as “The Passionate”. Brand’s ability on the battlefield and bedchamber alike was of a savage intensity that masked the bitterness of a betrayal that had ripped the heart from his chest. Now a victim himself, Brand would be forced by his friend the Duke of Normandy and the King of England to marry the Saxon daughter of the man he’d defeated. As beautiful and comely as she was, he vowed he would never love her – but as Brynna’s honesty and unselfish love was given to him, he would find that she would prove to be a warrior to he might gladly lose the battle to.

___ This was an amazing and thoroughly enjoyable Medieval read encompassing all the grandeur, and the political intrigues of that era that lovers of historical romances are bound to take pleasure in. I was totally captivated by this author’s well-researched writing, the emotion, and the sensual imagery of lovemaking scenes that took my breath away. The romance was SUPERB and I loved the author’s characterization of the lead protagonists as well as the humor and loving friendships that existed between Brand and William, Duke of Normandy (later William the Conquerer) and his brother. Brynna and Brand were both wonderful leads and the author shined in making the reader feel all their emotions of the love, hurt, betrayals, and especially the passion that neither was able to hide for one another. This is a STELLAR Medieval romance that sparkles with with wit, humor and sensual passion that will put this newer author on the road to stardom! I will be anxiously awaiting the next book featuring Brand’s brother Dante in LORD OF TEMPTATION.
