Is he worth the heartbreak? At nearly forty, Julie isn’t so sure she’ll ever find a man who is, so she’s vowed that all her big 4-0 decisions will have zip to do with relationships. A successful theater manager, she agrees to travel to North Carolina and help a friend put her erotic performance theater on its feet. Julie has always been curious and drawn to the BDSM world, and now she can safely explore that world in the environment she knows best.
Desmond Hayes is the roofing contractor repairing their rundown theater building, but he’s also a rigger, well-known in the BDSM world for his rope artistry. He’s not just a top, though; he’s a Dom whose unexpected quirks mesh too well with Julie’s eccentric personality and awaken her submissive side.
From the time he was born, Des has been fighting the odds against him. Because of that, he’s kept his relationships inside the BDSM scene, with clear boundaries. While Julie has almost given up on finding a person worth loving through better or worse—or pleasure and pain—Des never expected to receive that gift.
He’s not letting that treasure get away—no matter how much rope he has to use to bind her to him.
This is a standalone novel in the Nature Of Desire series. The only novel in this series that I personally believe would add to the reading experience of this particular story is Rough Canvas, as it tells the story of the two secondary characters, Thomas and Marcus.

Let me tell you now: I kill her.
I love Gwenna White more than my life – and still, I’m her demise.
It should have been simple. Easy come, easy go, and in between: atonement.

When she laid her hands on me, she healed me, too.
That’s how it began. That’s where it first went wrong.
I knew she could never be mine. But I sinned.

Sienna Diaz is everyone’s favorite “fat” funny lady. The movie studio executives can’t explain it, but her films are out-grossing all the fit and trim headliners and Hollywood’s most beautiful elite. The simple truth is, everyone loves plus-sized Sienna.

Cory was my best friend, the boy who I’d resolved to spend my entire life with. I’d grown to love him, gotten used to the idea of our life together, even if it wasn’t the all-encompassing, soul-crushing, heart-shattering romance it appeared to be.
Hayes was the boy who seemed entirely out of reach. Untouchable. He stole my first kiss, a secret I’d hidden away in the recesses of my heart, protecting the memory and hoping it would be enough to last me a lifetime. When he became my history teacher, it was impossible to hide from him any longer.
There was no way to anticipate just how important both Wallace brothers would become to me, how deeply they would change my life, or how the loss of one would propel me into the arms of the other.

From an author who never fails to deliver the perfect blend of skin-tingling sexual tension and heartwarming emotion, we are given yet another set of characters that captivate us from the start and only leave us wanting more. A charming tale of three estranged brothers forced to work together again in order to save their family business, and a feisty home designer to the stars who sweeps into their lives like a summer storm—unexpected and electric—bringing a welcome wind of change to a family on the brink of losing everything they hold dear. This book made me smile cover to cover.

Hill novel, you’ll agree with me that there is something utterly mesmerising about any one of her incredible stories. With flawless character development and intriguing, robust storylines, her stories never fail to touch me deeply, move me in ways I never thought possible, and this book is no exception. A true gem in a series that I keep loving more and more.
This story was a charming and captivating riot of emotions that I could not put down for a second. The tale of a former child star who suddenly returns to the stage after many years but remains wary of fame, and a woman choosing a life of obscurity over the limelight—this was a book I loved…and the dirty-talking hero was just icing on the cake.
This story was sheer beauty in every possible way. I have always known that there is something uniquely soothing about any one of Amy Harmon’s extraordinary tales, but this book also proves that in any genre, her talent knows no bounds. An absolute gem of a story, this was an instant favourite for me.

This is one of those ‘hand-on-heart’ book recommendations that I am making unreservedly.
A slow burning romance, like all its phenomenal predecessors in the series, this love story percolates our senses unhurriedly but steadily, giving us time to bond with the characters and to feel the growing connection between them. My heart felt like it would burst out of my chest on so many occasions, during so many gut-wrenching scenes, making this story one of my most emotional reads by this remarkable author.
