Master of Desire (Brotherhood/MacAllister #1)

A Dream of Desire Awakened . . .
Beautiful Lady Emily dreams of the rapture of love and the joys of marriage. The youngest daughter of an English lord at war, she is shaken by the arriva...more
Oh how I enjoyed this one! Yes, it’s got the tried and true romance cliché of a brooding, tortured hero who doesn’t believe himself worthy of happiness or love fighting his intense lust for the spirited maiden who’s determined to convince him otherwise. But Master of Desire manages to standout splendidly with its endearing, unforgettable characters, witty dialogue, and the perfect mix of angst, humor, sweetness, and heat.
Draven is such a sigh-worthy hero. I ...more
I loved Draven! I thought he was an honourable hero who could park his shoes under my bed any time! His tortu ...more
I loved everything about it: Draven (a tortured hero I just wanted to hold and never let go), Emily (a spunky heroine determined to win the hero´s heart), Simon (the most adorable second character I´ve met) and, last but not least, the story (it made me laugh and it made me cry, what more could I ask for?)
It's a must read to those who loved Highlander and medieval story.
** SK, I love you but I love you more as Kinley MacGregor **

The basic set up is that Emily, the female protagonist, is forced to live with Draven (Yes, I know, the names scream 1990’s, but go with it) to stop the fighting between their two families. It’s a cliché, but Kinley Macgregor aka Sherrily ...more
Draven, Earl of Ravenswood has had an extraordinarily difficult childhood and carries the emotional and physical scars. He believes himself cursed and, with the exception of his brother Simon, does not allow anyone to get close to him.

Draven and Emily's father are enemies, and by decree from the king, Emily is to live under Draven's roof for in one year in order to stop the fighting between the two lords. Draven is not to touch her (in violence or lust). It is Draven's belief that he will have no problem keeping his hands to himself until he meets Emily!
Emily wants Draven, (in the biblical sense), from the first moment they meet. I love this twist because so ofte ...more
“Milord?” she asked Draven. “Know you how many Byzantines it takes to light a fire?” His look hovered between boredom and skepticism as he reached for his goblet. “I cannot imagine.” “Two,” she said simply. “One to start the fire and one to confuse the issue.”
“How many Norsemen does it take to light a fire?” “ ...more
Emily was sent to Draven for a year to build peace. She wanted to get away from her father’s strictness that she desired Draven to fall in love with her. Her goal from the start was to seduce him and she did it with grace. She was not overbearing and manipulative. Her banters with Draven were light and humorous th ...more
