Hi Elaine-

So sorry it took me a while to respond! I couldn't find the link to give a proper answer.

Deeper Than Desire was never for sale anywhere--it was a free short story I wrote as a bonus feature to FOR YOUR ARMS ONLY. It's not an independent story by any means. However, I did finally locate a link where you can read it online:

I hope you enjoy it!

Best wishes,

That's why I've got a number of novellas--they are generally stories about secondary characters (and in a couple of cases I wrote them at readers' request). But Francis, from the start, was meant to have a rather sad story, romantically, so I kind of burned my bridges in terms of writing his story. But I am so happy you cared about him enough to wonder and want more.

Thank you for the great question!(less)

An absolutely brilliant book. Every character has such depth and serves a purpose. It's been a while since I read it, but it's just as good the second and third time around.
More of Caroline's books…
“Would you like me to court you?” the earl finally asked.
YES. She smoothed her hands over her skirts to keep from confessing it aloud. “I would like to know if you are,” she replied. “Or what your intentions are, if you aren’t.”
“My intentions . . .” His slow smile acted like a torch held to her skin. She felt prickly with heat and yet transfixed by the glowing allure of it. “I intend to have you, Maggie, in every way a man can have a woman. I want your hand in mine while we dance. I want you laughing beside me in the theater. I want you lying naked in my arms at night. And I want you standing beside me in church, saying ‘I will.’ ”
Caroline Linden

“Men can bed any woman,” she said stiffly. “It means nothing.”
He paused. “Nothing,” he repeated thoughtfully. “It rarely means nothing. And sometimes, in very particular circumstances, it means a great deal.”
Caroline Linden, Blame It on Bath

“What the devil was this story? Douglas pushed open the door to his sitting room, propped one shoulder against the window frame as he opened the plain, prudish cover, and began to read.

By the end of the first page his eyebrows started to rise. By the end of the second, his mouth was hanging open. And when he reached the last page, he no longer cared about Spence's wager or the bounty on Lady Constance's head or what Burke was thinking to let Joan read this.

If Madeline Wilde had written this--even if every word sprang solely out of her imagination and not from her experience--he wanted to get to know her much, much better.”
Caroline Linden, All's Fair In Love and Scandal
