Caught in the crossfire of war, they were shipwrecked on an idyllic island, where they tasted perfect passion… and tenderness. But Drake dreaded the day of their rescue—when his love would discover that the virile man she adored was at the pinnacle of the aristocracy she despised. Hardly did they suspect the base treachery that would soon threaten them… and the dangers each would brave to join forever their hearts and lives

Drake and Alex’s story in My Heart’s Desire is a wonderful tale that I was thrilled to read again. I read it many years ago and as soon as I picked it up yesterday I knew I wouldn’t put it down until I’d read the last word.
It’s funny when I hear disparaging remarks about headstrong characters like Alex or Drake but I can assure you many of us reflect personalities eerily similar. At some points in the book, I wondered if Ms. Kane had been hanging out listening outside our windows!
I enjoyed My Heart’s Desire most because I respected how Alex fought for the life she wanted. How she was willing to give up everything for the man she loved. And how she consistently forgave her husband as he tried to overcome his past and the baggage he brought to their marriage.
I found Drake to be a very realistic character. He reminds me of Hubby in many ways (except perhaps the baggage, which would be me). He’s very loving but refuses to show it because he is afraid of being hurt. It was fun to watch him grow and change as the story progressed.
Thank you, Ms. Kane for sharing your heart with us in My Heart’s Desire. It’s a testament to your amazing writing that we still love your releases 25 years later!
I almost didn’t include this excerpt. Mostly because, in my mind, it wasn’t representative of My Heart’s Desire. Sure, the book has the steam this excerpt implies (though this scene is a bit misleading) but when placed next to the book it doesn’t show the depth of character or the richness of the story. If you’re looking for the steam, this is the book for you. If you’re looking for a historical romance laced with suspense, this is even more so the book for you.
