|Plot Summary of All My Desire|
Avon, Oct 2002, 5.99, 384 pp.
Sir Alexander DeFrouchette lives for revenge against Connor of Bellevoire who killed Alexander's father and took his family's land as his own. Alexander and his mother were left with nothing but a destroyed life filled with scorn from those who were their alleged friends. Alexander's plan is quite simplistic. He is going to kidnap the woman he was to marry until the pivotal incident changed his life and gave her to his enemy.
However, Alexander abducts the wrong woman as he takes the sister in law of his foe, Lady Isabelle who was accompanying Connor at the marketplace. As Alexander and his prisoner become better acquainted, they begin to fall in love. However, the shadow of Connor remains overwhelming to both them to the point of distrust and probable destruction of their growing love.
Though very typical of medieval romance story lines, ALL MY DESIRE entertains sub-genre fans through two strong lead characters. Readers will enjoy the antics and especially the debates between the brooding sexy hero and the intelligent captive who knows where her safety lies. As usual the audience gets more from a novelist who always provides an inviting tale.
