Rating: 4 Cups
When Lady Amelia Bertram was very young she lost her mother. At the tender age of thirteen, she learned firsthand that she could not even depend on her father in her time of need, and has since then turned into a hellion determined to shock everyone.
Thomas Armstrong is known far and wide for his eligibility, as well as for his hunger in the bedroom. When his business partner asks Thomas for help in controlling Amelia he turns him down, until she publicly slanders him.
Amelia is shocked when she learns that her father has turned her over to Thomas, who in turn gives her a job not fit for a woman of her station. As their days together grow in number, so does their desire and passion for one another. But Amelia is not known for her gentle and kind side, and Thomas must continue to fight the hellion even as his baser needs seek to be satisfied by the beauty. Will Amelia be able to withstand the sensual promise that is shown in Thomas’ eyes? What will happen when Thomas’ and Amelia’s pasts catch up to them at the most inopportune time?
I love a good historical romance, and Ms. Kendall has written one that definitely left me satisfied. The heartache that Amelia feels when watching the way her father interacts with Thomas gave the tale an air of sadness and loneliness. Thomas’ character was strongly developed and allowed me to see the change that slowly came about as he gets to know the real Amelia. The passion and love that occurs throughout the tale made me sigh and hope for the best for these two hard-headed lovers. A Taste of Desire not only gives you a taste, it gives you a full course meal that leaves you wanting more from this talented author.
