If You Desire
He tried to run....

This book was one of the very few ventures I've made into the realm of erotica and it book epitomised exactly why.
Who doesn't enjoy a good sex scene? Certainly not me. In fact I can't stand it when there is no sexual intimacy in a book.
But do you know what? Sex is not the only thi ...more
OMG! This series ... GAH! It is SOOOO GOOD! Kresley Cole's writing is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS and her characters are BEYOND LOVABLE! I don't think she can write a bad book even if she tried. From the story to the banter to the supporting cast ... I can't rave enough about this author's work!
I loved book one. I mean LOVED! Courtland MacCarrick & Lady Annalía Tristán stole my heart from the minute I met them and, just when I thought I couldn't love a couple any more, we got introduced to Hugh MacCarr ...more
I have simply come to love this trilogy to the bits, and the feverish Romance between Hugh and Jane was simply burning with unleashed deire, and WOW how Kresley Cole made the wait worth ...more
Otherwise than Hugh's and Jane's story was enjoyable, I liked it. Looking forward to Ethan's book. ...more

Hugh is summonsed to London to ultimately protect Jane, a woman who he aches for but hasn't seen in ten years, from a man who want ...more
I am downgrading my original 5 stars rating. I like Jane and Hugh but their story isn't as emotionally charged as I would like for 5 stars ratings.
This is a highly entertaining book which requires minimal emotional investment. I enjoyed the read immensely for its tension and fast pace. I also enjoy Ms. Cole's writing a lot. She is not that kind of writers who show and tell you everything about the characters. She is on the other side of the spectru ...more
I really liked both Hugh and Jane, the hero and the heroine in this book, even th ...more
The suspense subplot is the saving grace of this one, with the villain much more interesting than the leading couple. I wished there'd be more of him throughout the story and his demise was a bit too abrupt and swift, pro ...more

The three brothers all walked with death, just as had been predicted.
The Carrick curse is alive and well, rearing its ugly head in "If You Desire" the second book in the MacCarrick Brothers series
Dang! This book was better than the first!
Finished this in about 24 hours because seriously, could not put this down! I loved it all from start to finish.
This tale about middle brother Hugh and his lady Jane Weyland was absolutely swoon worthy and much more emotionall ...more
The thing that just put a nail in the coffin was the damn h running after the H to convince his minuscule brain to go the logical way.
The plot of If You Dare was rather silly and so I was pleasantly surprised by the villain plot in the beginning of this book. But Cole didn’t really do anything with it and the subplots and devices she came up with felt rather random to me. Plus the villain’s demise was rather anticlimactic.
I like Cole’s overbearing and gruffy men but Hugh was almost too much. There’s one thing being quiet and brood ...more
ITS NOT THAT SATTISFYING
Thought the prequel was a little bit better, a little more mysterious. This one was full of anticipation of things that were clearly known as having read the first novel. Least, the story was sweet. Not to mention, how the erotica wasn't told almost more than three forth of the book despite so many erotics scene in the first book. ...more

Hmm… What to say? Well I can start by saying this, the love between Jane and Hugh just emanated out of this book. Hugh loved Jane so passionately, deeply, and strongly. It was heart breaking to read about what torture he was enduring. Before I get deeper…
Hugh MacCarrick is a big, hot, sexy highlander…Who just so happens to be an assassin. Oh! And he’s also cursed. Anyone who has read the first book knows that because of this curse none of the three MacCarrick brothers will be able...more
