Review: Desperate Desires by Terri Wolffe

Page Count: 216

Book Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

The cunningly audacious Lady Lucinda Davenport is by no means a conventional woman. Smart and fiercely determined, she’s more comfortable adding numbers than she’ll ever be socializing with highfalutin members of the ton. When desperate straits force her into action to save her home and lands, she finds herself faced with only one option. Summoning every ounce of her courage, she sets in motion a wild and raunchy scheme that would set the ton on fire if they ever caught wind of her actions.

Lucien Brandford, fourth Duke of Carlsborough, is a dangerous man. Wealthy beyond imagination and handsome to a fault, the Duke is sought after by nearly every woman of the ton. Single, widowed, or married, ladies vie for his attention with cutthroat precision. But the Duke has no tolerance for the machinations of his title and fortune-hungry peers. He seeks his pleasure from women who require no commitment.

That attitude ensnares the Duke in Lady Lucinda’s plan. Caught unawares, Lucien finds himself at the mercy of a bold and luscious woman whom he cannot decide if he wants to strangle or bed.

The sensual dance that follows between captor and captive as they engage in a volatile battle for control, culminates in a seismic eruption—both psychological and sensual. As tempers flare and sparks fly, an intense and erotic interlude of passion ensues.

The temperamental lovers soon discover what all the world knows: that in order to possess the love of a lifetime, they must submit to one another to conquer their own Desperate Desires.

Sensually spiced with a heavy dose of passion, this romantic bestseller comes complete with a memorable cast of characters. You won’t want to put this one down!

Mandy's Review:

Warning:  Adults Only, Please!!!


The cover is a standard portrayal of a romance novel.  You know ... sexy, muscular man in a romantic embrace with a voluptuous, half-dressed woman.  I'm a fan of the red on the cover, though.  =)


The story started off uniquely enough with the abduction of a Duke.  It didn't take long for the storyline to sizzle.  Every time you flip a page, the two main characters are having a go.  Speaking of which ... I had never heard sexual intercourse be referred to as a "tup," being "tupped" or "tupping."  I rather enjoyed learning a new word for the act itself.  I get tired of seeing "making love," "fucking" (sorry, but I did warn you this was for adults only) or "sex."

I am getting a little bored with all the main male characters in romance/erotica being well-endowed.  Think about it ladies ... how many well-endowed men do you really know?  I've ... "met" ... a few in my day, but the majority of the men are average or below average with a rare few being extremely below average (poor things). 

I do understand why all the main male characters in romance novels are this way, though.  I mean, this is a fantasy.  What woman doesn't want a well-endowed man thoroughly "tupping" her while telling her what to do and what he's going to do to her?  ...   ...  hhmmm ... ... (*shaking head*) ... anyhow, back to the review ... =)

Main Characters

Lucien - A rich, well-endowed, muscular, single, domineering man who rather enjoys "servicing" and being "serviced" on occasion ... yeah ... I think that about covers it =)

Lucinda - One of the co-conspirators behind the Duke's abduction.  She is amazingly inexperienced and is an apt pupil for the Duke's teachings.


If you like spice, this short spicy novella is just for you.  Just be forewarned ... have your lover near by.  You're going to want to either act out what you read or create your own spice!  =)  Muy Caliente!
