Isabella, Lady Willoughby, has always been patient and proper. But secretly she longs to be wild and scandalous, to wear daring gowns while dancing the night away, and maybe have an affair. But above all, she craves one thing: to be more than merely a “friend” to Marcus, the dashing, sinfully handsome Lord Roth.
Marcus has everything a man of rank can want: power, prestige, wealth...enemies. He thrives on danger and lives life to the fullest knowing each day might be his last, for he carries a dark family secret which has one simple rule, never fall in love. Especially not with Bella who has transformed herself into a siren, bewitching every male she encounters with her newly unfettered sensuality. Marcus must not allow himself to be tempted - but his resolve is weakening by the minute.
Will Bella be able to break down the barrier that Marcus has built around him? Will her love be enough for both of them?
Anne Mallory brings us yet another wonderful story full of seduction, mystery and most of all, romance. Each and every character that Ms. Mallory creates will be someone you can fall in love with, even the 'bad guys'! Beautiful settings and steamy encounters make What Isabella Desires one of my first picks for your summer reading.
