Overall Rating 350 Action 0 Emotion 4 Romance 45 Sensuous 25 Suspense 15 Regency Flavor 35 Humor 2 Tears 2 A Taste of Desire is Beverley Kendall's second book in The Elusive Lords Series The book is a necessary read to anyone who read the first book of the series Sinful Surrender because of the way Amelia Bertram trouble making daughter of Lord Harold Harry Bertram Maruess of Bradford greeted her father's business partner Viscount Thomas Armstrong I've heard you are considered at best a rake about town and at worst a debaucher of women and maiden sensibilities I certainly hope you are not going to ply your trade here this eveningHowever A Taste of Desire is not a necessary read for anybody wanting to experience the feelings of emotional angst suffered by a daughter who spends an entire book cutting the hero with sharp words because her father treated him like a son than he treated her like a daughter The premise is realistic and the emotional pull could be profound but Kendall spent time telling the readers how Amelia felt than drawing the emotions from the reader with dialogue and action A Taste of Desire is an enjoyable fun read Thomas and Amelia spent a lot of time sparring because they do not want to be attracted to the other but it will never find it's way onto my to be re read list A in depth detailed spoiler ridden review of this book can be found on blog Wolf Bear Does Books
