Desired is a beautiful Historical Romance. Nicola Cornick penned a heart-melting love story that's captivating. Cornick created a fantastic historical world. The storyline will take you into a world of radicals, abuse, healing and so much more. Teresa and Owen's love had me laughing and crying.

Teresa (Tess) is a woman who has been abused and damaged, and with three marriages, Tess is the gossip of the town. So marriage number four is not what she’s looking for. But when she finds herself in a situation where marriage is the only answer—for a woman in the eighteenth century—Tess set her sights on Lord Owen Rothury. After hearing about his war injury, Owen was the perfect man for this marriage of convenience. Owen is also an investigator of the home office who’s looking for the radicals. And Tess is a part of the radical reform. Tess figures she can protect her stepdaughter and herself through this marriage. Tess is a strong women who never gives up her control, especially in this world where men abuse and control women.

Owen is man who has made a promise to himself to protect women after he failed to help a woman when he was younger. So it’s not hard for Owen to be convinced by Tess to marry her in order to protect her stepdaughter. What started out as a marriage of convenience for Owen and Tess will become their heart’s desire.

Desired will capture your heart with Tess and Owen’s romance, and a storyline that’s filled with drama, humor, suspense, but most of all, the desire for love. A love that will heal broken hearts. I recommend Desired as a must read.
