She's also a lawyer and mom, and at age forty, with two babies at home, she started a new career as a commercial fiction writer. She'd hoped to be a suspense novelist, but couldn't sell any of her manuscripts, so she took a detour into romance, where she was stunned to discover that she has a knack for writing some of the world's greatest love stories. I was stunned that I liked it. There was no & in this historical; what I did feel was chemistry between all the players.

When I’m with you? Never. Lily clasped John’s hand a bit tighter, wanting to seem very brave, but she was a tad frightened-despite how fervidly she claimed otherwise. They were descending into the. cavern under the castle, headed for the ancient hot springs where she’d suffered the twins’ foul play. She’d assumed she would never again visit the isolated place, but he’d begged her to accompany him, and she’d been unable to refuse. Though he had no clue of her intentions, she was leaving in the morning. Her small assortment of clothes was folded in her portmanteau.

This book is just as good as the first book can't wait to read the third one. Well I'm getting ready to read the last one.

One of my favorite writers so I try to read her when available. True to form heroine finds lust/love with anchorless hero; evil relations (twin wards) put her in peril along with evil maternal relative. Edward, John's half-brother is unscrupulous but not totally evil or as mad as the rest. Madhouse is too good for step-mamma; Edward got the worst punishment; and the twins off too lightly. I honestly felt Edward deserved a lighter sentence than the deathly peril presented to him by banishing him with the twins. Then again, he did 'play' and manipulate the females gleefully. John, the hero - hmm, lead by his...., fails to recognizes love when it happens but loves Miranda blindly and is frightfully bombarded with female relatives of evil intent. Takes a while, but John finally shakes the webs from him. John saves Miranda and the day, but then again, he did place her there. All she did was fall in love with him and be unenlightened on his shortsighted views of long-range plans. I did like Miranda and she started out spunky and strong but fell in love/lust, then pffft! I was hoping for the super-heroine who nobody could get the drop on, but then how could John save her. Got to keep to the story line. The word evil was overly used in this review but there was a liberal dose of it spread through the characters. As always, love the racy romance.

I reviewed this book for Romance Reader At Heart website.

RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS:

I'm perplexed as to where to start with my review of DREAMS OF DESIRE. I was stunned that I liked it. There was no `history' in this historical; what I did feel was chemistry between all the players. Secondary players and sexual tension abound in this tale of passion and love, sprinkled with a dose of magic. I laughed, I yelled, and the ending brought me to tears.

Our heroine is Lily Lambert, an orphaned spinster that has dreams and expectations like any other woman of her time. She wants a steady home, someone to love, and children to rear. But Lily is also a very astute and realistic female of her time. She comes to accept the fact that Prince Charming is just not in the cards for her. Working for a living is something she is meant to do for the rest of her life, so she takes a position of companion to eighteen-year-old twins, who are the wards of John Middleton, the Earl of Penworth.

Our hero is John Middleton, the Earl of Penworth, a man who was abandoned by his mother at the age of two and brought up by his stepmother. He is always cool, calm, and collected, and by most the word `boor' would describe him best. His father brought him up to respect his position in life and to adhere to its principles and protocols. There was no room for play or laughter in his life, let alone love. Attending to his duties is all he knows about, and one of those is to make sure he chooses a suitable bride. Lady Violet Howard, a Duke's daughter of eighteen years of age, is the best candidate John picked himself, thinking she'd suite him best.

Then we have Phillip Dubois, or Phillip Dudley, our Gypsy extraordinaire, who apparently is the glue to all three books. He's a restless young man that's been traveling all his life with his sister throughout rural England, selling his remedies and potions, and that's something our heroine, smart as she is, practical as she is, ends up buying--hoping against hope that maybe, just maybe, it might work and bring her love.

As much as our hero was arrogant and selfish at times, I came to like his charm and wit. I enjoyed his interaction with everyone, especially with Lily, who was strong, clever, and quick with her retorts. Her common sense and wit come in handy when she has to deal with not just her employee, but also with his crazy stepmother and her spoiled son Edward, the twins from Hell, Melanie and Miranda, and his 'meek' and suitable fiancée. The only sane person in this menagerie was his real mother, Barbara, who `infiltrates' the group and makes the `bedlamites' squirm.

In order for you to like this story, you need to accept it for what it is and not for what you expected it to be. This is a lighthearted, fast-paced, silly romantic comedy, and I, for one, was ready for it. It was kind of refreshing to read something like it after so many romances that pulled at my heartstrings.

So, if you want your funny bone tickled and your passions stirred, head to the nearest bookstore and get yourself all three `Spinster's Curse Regency' novels. TASTE OF TEMPTATION and PROMISE OF PLEASURE just joined my TBR shelf.

Having read two of Ms. Holt's most recent trilogies, I thought I would try this older one to see if those reviewers who said her earlier books were better were right. I guess I haven't moved early enough! This trilogy was not quite as repetitious in its phrasing as the newer ones, but the Spinster's Cure series was more repetitious in the actual story part.

In all three a woman is hired to work for a lord in some capacity. They have an affair, she expects marriage, he says there's no way. Some evil woman (stepmother, cousin) sends her away, supposedly at the hero's urging, supposedly providing for heroine, but actually sending her away into a dire situation. He finds out, realizes that he loves her and rides to the rescue. I almost didn't finish this third one, but there was just a enough difference for me to want to find out how it all works out.

I don't know how Holt got labled "the queen of erotic romance." I found the love scenes between hero and heroine to be fairly boring (in each book of the series, the heroine is a naive virgin, yet hero eventually blames her for causing him to have relations with him). And in this book, the relationship between the hero's evil twin wards and his half-brother Edward was more salacious than erotic - with a large measure of S&M.

Glad I got this from the library and didn't spend any money on it!
