Lady Samantha Barrett wondered if her imaginary hero would ever become real. Of course, he must be devastatingly handsome and just a bit dangerous. Now, her coach is filled with a collection of Gothic novels and her head with romantic notions as she eagerly leaves her brother’s country estate for her first London season. Still unsophisticated and too innocent by far, Samantha is ill-prepared for the hypocrisy of the ton or for the formidable stranger who crosses her path—a stranger she is sure must be the man of her dreams…
Remington Worth, the Earl of Gresham, is reputed to be anything but a hero. He is, however, intrigued by the fresh, young Lady Samantha. At sea, Remington had been a brilliant captain. To help save his country, he has accepted the Crown’s commission to become the most deadly and loyal covert agent, posing as a notorious womanizer and blackmailer. His latest mission is to investigate the mysterious disappearances of England’s prized merchant vessels. With an iron will, he will allow no one to get in his way or touch his heart—until Samantha.

Mystery. Romance. Suspense. Steam. What more could you want from a book? Nothing, I promise you.
After reading My Heart’s Desire, I was worried that Samantha wouldn’t live up to my expectations, luckily I was tremendously wrong.
I’m bit surprised by my feelings toward Samantha, generally when a character is this romantic and nieve I’m not enamored. Samantha, however, is a great character. Though nieve and romantic, she’s not stupid or weak. She really makes you devour the book.
Remington is amazing. He’s such a hero especially when he’s trying not to be.
I thoroughly enjoyed Samantha, even though the steam is a bit more than I prefer (it’s not too descriptive), it’s an amazing book I know I’ll read again.
