Courageous Minerva Peabody, a poor but passionate playwright, is cursed to be living in Elizabethan England, when women most assuredly did not write plays. Determined to succeed, Min impulsively enlists the help of the first man she sees to be her “cover.” Blake, her chosen surrogate, a handsome blue-eyed sea captain with his own agenda, is a man with a mysterious past, a wondrous pair of shoulders, and an irresistible aura of intrigue. As his own mission — ferreting out the cad who got his sister pregnant — collides with Min’s nascent career, his dilemma is keen: protect either his family’s honor or the woman who’s slowly but surely winning his heart. Fast-paced, funny, richly detailed, and with a deliciously dark edge, Her Secret Desire speaks to any woman who, no matter what, never gives up on her dreams. Download and start listening now!

    " Freebie from Amazon. A bit wordy. Hardly realistic. And sorta dull. I wasn't very interested in the plot progression. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tntexas | 12/11/2013

    " A light, fun historical romance with a fiesty heroine. I enjoyed the peek into Elizabethean times and appreciated the fact that Min loved her father despite their conflicts and wanted to protect him. "

    " The writing wasn't very good (as expected), but at least the plot wasn't too, too predictable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 6/7/2013

    " A sweet historical romance about a woman trying to follow her dreams and a society that doesn't approve. I found that the story was a bit repetitive at times but the author shows great potential! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alyssa | 4/1/2013

    " This was moderately ok for a romance novel. The plot was somewhat interesting and it's always better to ignore how accurate these novels are (or are now) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candace | 2/15/2013

    " Interesting if you enjoy period books. This book is based in Shakespeare's england so is certainly different from modern day. Still interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jealisa | 10/31/2012

    " Lovely story set in Victorian era about a woman playwriter which of course was unheard of. With mentions of Shakespeare, funny light hearted with a nice love story in twined with a view of history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eva | 10/4/2012

    " a total fluff romance and loved every word of it. The main characters were likeable. I really am not that great at writting reviews but I know what I like. Looking forward to reading book 2. "

    " This book surprised me at how much I enjoyed it. The 660 page length seemed daunting at first but they just flew by. Although some of the scenarios are a bit hard to swallow, the story is still very entertaining. "
