Mariah Desmond is on the prowl for a new protector after finding out that her lover left her with pretty much nothing after he passes away. You would think she would get more than what she got, after all she was his mistress for sometime. At last, it was not the case.
Back on the market as you might say, Mariah stumbles upon Owen's best friend John Rycroft. They both have an enjoyable time of pleasure, but John is unable to give more than that. Hurt by John, Mariah continues the search. However, John is unable to stop himself for seeking out more.
So, I have been trying to come up with the right words for today's entry. All that comes to mind is hot steamy sex. The kind that makes you yearn for a cold shower. Granted there is more to story than a hankering for a cold shower. For example, Mariah was never cut out to be a mistress. Somehow she was able to maintain some type innocences in a jaded lifestyle. However, life choices changes the course of direction.
Then you have John who is rich and handsome, and any woman would be glad to hold. Yet he is perfectly content being a one night stand kind of guy, until he has Mariah. Something changes in him when it comes to Mariah. I love that he tries so hard to be honorable and keep his distance from Mariah. Somehow he can't.
Overall, I liked the story. It wasn't the hot steamy sex that did it for me, but the actual story itself. There was so much depth to For Desire Alone and made a good read. So, if you are looking for something a little more heated and a dark brooding hero, you might want to checkout For Desire Alone by Jess Michaels.
