Fayth manages to escape from her family only to be caught by Alex "Red" Maxwell, a man she detests as much as she loathes Ridley. Alex sees the value in his new “guest” as he plans to use her as a negotiating pawn to buy land from Ashton. However, he soon finds himself placing a higher value on his prisoner as he falls in love with Fayth, but though his heart says otherwise he does not trust her with his back.

The second “Brides of the Bloodstone” tale TAMED BY YOUR DESIRE is a fast-paced sixteenth century border romance. The story line is exhilarating starting with the prologue that occurs six decades earlier until the soul-kissing finale. The tale contains bits of magic that provide an exotic fresh feel to an overdone era. The lead characters are heroic, intrepid, and firmly in love. However, the villains seem too odious to take serious. Still, Jen Holling has written a wonderful historical romance with a touch of enchantment that readers will find delightful.
