Master of Desire, by Jessica Trapp

Master of Desire


Blackmailed into exposing the naughty secrets of the nobility, she became The Spy of the Night in a desperate bid to secure her son's future.

When the king's bounty hunter captures her, all honor and duty fall aside in a night of forbidden desire. But sins of her past thwart their future when she escapes and he is imprisoned for her crimes.

Now he will stop at nothing to own her, body and soul.

"Trapp's blending of sensuality, humor and a great plot make Master of Desire a fast, enjoyable read."
—Amanda Waters, The Romance Reader

"Ms. Trapp has done it again. She has written such a compelling story that you just can’t put it down. I’m drooping at my keyboard from staying up way too late because I couldn’t sleep thinking about the book. I finally had to get up and finish it just to get some sleep.

I’m sure you’ll find this book to be on your keeper shelf. I know it’s on mine. Ms. Trapp wrote brilliantly in her first novel and this time she has improved. I wasn’t sure there was room for improvement, but this story is even more powerful and captivating than the first. I am already waiting anxiously for her next novel to go to print. Grab your copy of Master of Desire before the shelves are cleared. I’m sure this book will be in high demand. Enjoy!"
—Robyn, Once Upon a Romance

"MASTER OF DESIRE is a wonderfully well-written book that reminded me why I began reading romance novels to begin with. Ms. Trapp is definitely an artist and a blessed addition to this genre of writing."

"Gabriel of Whitestone may be the Maser of Desire, but he becomes love's captive in Jessica Trapp's exciting tale."

"Powerful emotions pour from the pages of Trapp's adventurous captive/captor tale. The strength of her characters sets the book on fire, and as passion explodes between them, readers will breathe a deep sigh and continue until the last, touching page of this irresistible read."
—Kathe Robin, Romantic Times

"Author Jessica Trapp creates a highly sensual story in MASTER OF DESIRE. To Adriana, Gabriel is a barbarian. To Gabriel, Adriana is another of the noble women who are willing to use him for his body, but refuse to accept him as an equal. Overcoming their prejudices and developing an understanding of each other would be a challenge under the best of circumstances. With Adriana is being blackmailed into continuing to spy, and with Gabriel captured and tortured by the Cardinal, circumstances are far from the best. Can love really prevail against all of these problems?

Trapp creates an entertaining story with two strong characters battling one another--even as they fall in love."
