He charged out of the darkness to her rescue . . .
Amelia Grant has just escaped her lecherous employer with nothing but the clothes on her back. In the predawn hours of London, a horse and carriage come barreling down on her, and a stranger rushes to her aid, sweeping her off her feet . . .
There is something dark and dangerous about Nicholas Riley. With eyes gray like flint and hard as steel, he’s unusual … beautiful. The intensity behind his gaze makes her feel like the only person in the world. And then he whispers . . .
“I want your complete surrender.”
When I decided to read Desire Me Now I was expecting something more…errr…different (ok, kinky). Something that would go beyond the boundaries of the classic historical romance book. The cover made me think it would be more daring, an erotic romance with, maybe, some BDSM in the mix. Instead I found a classic historical romance set in 1881. I’m not saying that it’s boring or bad written or insipid. Desire Me Now is a well written, interesting and probably more sexy than the average story but there isn’t really much difference from other books of the same genre. That said, in the whole I really enjoied the book.
Speaking of the MCs. I liked Nick, he is a very good male character for a romance book. He is sexy and with that bit of dark past and rough appearance that makes your heart bit faster. However, sometimes I felt like he went from rascal to committed too fast. Amelia too is a good character, she was more in line with her behavior but for me she too surrendered to his seduction without putting up much of a fight (ok, I wouldn’t make him work too much for it too…he could well be everyones dream man, you know). Anyway.
The book ends with a bit of a cliffhanger because Amelia and Nick story is far from closed. Many things are still open and if you don’t like to read a book without a proper ending maybe it is better if you wait november when the third and (I hope…because I want to know how it ends not because it’s not good) last part of this series will be out.
