What a Woman Desires

What a Woman Desires
By Rachel Brimble
January 2015

From country girl to actress of the stage, one woman dares to live her dreams—but is she brave enough to open her heart. . .? 

Monica Danes always wanted more than the village of Biddlestone had to offer. After a failed courtship to a man of her parents' choosing, she fled for the city of Bath and never looked back. Today, Monica is the undisputed queen of the theater—a wealthy, independent woman. But when she is called home in the wake of tragedy, Monica returns—intending to leave again as soon as possible.

Thomas Ashby has been a groom at the Danes estate since he was a boy—and has been enamored with Monica for almost as long. He knows he isn't a suitable match for his master's daughter, despite the special bond he and Monica have always shared—and their undeniable attraction. But now that she's returned, Thomas has one last chance to prove himself worthy—and to show Monica a life, and a love, she won't want to give up. . . 

Between The Pages
A beautiful cover. The historical setting immediately places the reader into the story. Strong and determined are perfect descriptions of both Monica and Thomas who have sizzling chemistry. The main characters are well-developed and entertaining. The author did a great job of crafting the casts’ attire, creating a wonderful visual. As as reader, I was left hanging on two pivotal points to the storyline with regards to Monica’s sister’s secret love interest and the mystery behind her mother’s illness. These questions will hopefully transform into a second book, which I would look forward to reading.
