Desire Me Now
Desire Me # 1
By: Tiffany Clare
Released May 5, 2015
When Amelia Grant’s past catches up with her and threatens to destroy the life she’s built, Nick Riley doesn’t hesitate to protect her.
With just one look Nick completely undoes her. He wanted her surrender and she all but threw it at his feet. She’s revealed her darkest secrets . . . let him into her heart as he drew her deeper into forbidden games of desire . . .
But what happens when Nick’s secrets can destroy the very foundation they’ve build between each other? Will he let Amelia through the barriers of his past? Or will the truth tear them apart?
I normally do not read a lot of historical romance stories, I tend to stick to modern day since I find it easier to relate. Desire Me Now could actually be set in modern times though with just a few tweaks and still be relevant, so I was quite comfortable while reading it.
I really liked Amelia. She is strong and independent, willing to strike out on her own to save herself in a time period where women just do not exist without a man (either father, brother or husband). She makes the best of her situation, even when everything seems to be falling down around her.
Nick was a good male lead, brought up to be a gentleman and protective of Amelia from the moment he finds her. He helps those who truly need it, really a hero by most anyone's standards.
This is a very entertaining read with some good steamy scenes to spice things up, and kept my attention the whole way through. It does leave off with a lot of unanswered questions, giving the reader a cliffhanger when you might not expect it. But it's definitely worthy of a read, and I'm looking forward to continuing on with the series since the author has certainly grabbed my attention.
4 stars for Desire Me Now, recommended for 18+ due to mature content.
She didn’t miss the note of intimacy in his comment. And while his admission and the underlying innuendo should have her running from the house, she found herself intrigued. What in the world was wrong with her? Her imaginings from last night were what was wrong with her. She’d sketched a picture of this man in her mind that was too perfect and without flaws. Everyone had flaws.
She decided right then and there that she couldn’t trust herself in his presence. Her imagination had run wild with this man’s character, and she couldn’t help but paint him as some sort of hero, not only for rescuing her but also for giving her the things she desperately needed right now—a safe place, a job . . . a chance.
With self-preservation finally at the forefront of her thoughts, she managed to take an uneven step away from him. The misstep shot a heavy dose of pain up her leg, and it felt like her stomach was in her throat with the sudden correction in her balance. But Mr. Riley grasped her arm firmly. Instead of toppling back, she was crushed along the length of his body.
With her hands wrapped around his strong forearms, she let him steady her long enough that her head stopped spinning. His thumbs brushed back and forth over the inside of her wrist, letting her focus on the intimacy of his touch instead of the pain radiating from her ankle.
His nearness did strange things to her, things that made her want to step closer instead of away from him, to be touched everywhere as familiarly as he stroked her wrist. She shook her head and dropped her arms to her sides. She needed to get a better grasp on her emotions, her desires.
