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.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
'Days of Desire' by Tina Donahue is Book Two in the "Pirate's Prize" series. This is the story of Royce and Simone. I have read the previous book but feel this can be a standalone book...but it does have the villain Benedict Bishop in this book. Bishop has been blackmailing the Noble Royce to do his bidding else he will hurt Royce's sister and mother. Royce seems to have not choice but to do as Bishop asked. Bishop has asked that Royce bring back Diana Fletcher and Tristan Kent whom we meet in t ...more

Royce Hastings came from an Aristocrat household. He shouldn’t have had to make a deal with the devil. But, his father had left his family destitute, and Royce needed money to free his mother and sisters who were now indentured slaves. Bishop was a greedy, evil man and Royce should have known better than to have anything to do with him. But he didn’t, and now Bishop was blackmailing him. Royce was charged with finding the Island where Tristan, a famous pirate, and his wife, Diane, were hiding. R ...more

Boundless Book Reviews
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.

I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review. The story contains pirates, kidnapping, betrayal and love. Royce is forced to save his family at the expense of an ex-pirate and his now wife. As Royce comes to know Tristan, Diane and the other islanders he admits to his betrayal and a plan is devised to save his family and the islanders. Simone comes into Royce's life and they fall in love. The book is interesting and keeps your attention. I wish more was known about Royce's moth ...more

The adventure part of this story is very well-written, with well- developed characters, plenty of action, suspense, and a breath-taking ending. The explicit sex scenes are an important part of the story, but seemed to be a page-filler early on.

For those who love drawn-out intimate love scenes between two people who are basically very good at heart, and want only the best for their loved one, even if it means parting, this an excellent example of that genre.

This is a fast-paced read with lots of suspense and drama. It is the second in the series but can be read as a stand-alone. Royce is being black-mailed into doing another’s bidding. He pretends to get shipwrecked to find the people he is looking for and falls for the woman helping him heal from his injuries. Will he be able to turn against the people who have trusted him to save his family? I really liked this historical read. Great characters and an entertaining story.

3 Stars........Royce finds himself forced to work for the awful Bishop. His task, bring Diana back to him from the island she is in hiding with Tristan. Not an easy task.

Faking a shipwreck, he is found and gets cared for by the island healer, Simone. He must win the trust of Tristan and his men so that his plan will work. He didn't count on falling for Simone. Now he must decide if he can go through with his betrayal.

Good quick read for the historical romance lovers.
