APC PUBLISHER: Lyrical Press RELEASED: July 4, 2017 GENRE: HISTORICAL, ROMANCE LENGTH: 231 pages FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
In a pirate’s lair, nothing is as it seems . . .
Shipwrecked! When Royce Hastings is found washed up on the shore of a verdant tropical island, he tells the natives he is a merchant headed for Mozambique. The truth, however, is far more mercenary. Noble by birth, the once favored Royce has lost his fortune and family; now he is a hired henchman on the trail of an elusive pirate. His “shipwreck” was a fake. He’ll stop at nothing to infiltrate the island and capture his prey. His mother and sisters’ lives depend on it.
The last thing Royce expects is to be captured himself. But the lovely young woman who tends to his wounds in the tropics quickly takes hold of his heart. Simone is the island’s healer, and her skilled ministrations not only awaken his soul but disturb his conscience. His path has been predetermined; his identity must remain concealed at all costs. Yet the passion he feels in Simone’s sultry, loving arms cannot be denied. With his loyalties torn, Royce must make an agonizing, unthinkable choice. . . . THREE BOUNDLESS STARS
After reading, First Comes Desire (Pirate's Prize #1), Book 2 interested me immediately. Days of Desire works great as a standalone novel, but I recommend both books! Days of Desire developed “the riches to rags story” and mixes it with villains we already know to create a suspenseful and action-filled romance. I loved the characters, the story, and the writing as much as I did in #1. I rate Days of Desire, by Tina Donahue, with an easy 3 Boundless Star Rating.
