Fresh Fiction Review of HER ONE DESIRE

Click to Visit My Website

HER ONE DESIRE is a luscious historical romance with incredible characters and a great story overall. If you like sexy, to die for heroes, Kimberly Killion has written the ultimate one with Broderick. His devotion to his friends, family and that of Lizabeth is very sweet. Poor Lizabeth is a woman with the weight of the world on her shoulders during a time where a lady like herself has no options. She is very brave, loving and filled with such optimism. And don't be surprised if you find yourself laughing at the initial interactions both she and Broderick have. Their bantering back and forth is worth the read alone.

Lord Hollister is a nasty piece of work who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. And there are some great secondary characters that also breathe life into this story. Kimberly Killion also has a great knack for combining historical reality with fiction. For a romance that has thrills and some wonderful love scenes between Broderick and Lizabeth, HER ONE DESIRE is a great historical romance that you will not want to miss.

A wee bit of fan mail…

A writer knows she's having a good day when a reader reaches out to her and yells, "I love your book!"
I’m astounded by the response I’m getting from reviewers as well as readers. So today, instead of throwing another review your way, I’d like to share a few bits from the letters I’ve received from avid romance readers.

"I've also always been fascinated by the Tower of London and I was totally caught up in your story about the executioner's daughter. What an imaginative angle and a wonderful love story...*sigh*. Thank you for the awesome read. It brought tears to my eyes at the most unexpected moments. I totally recommended it to one of my writing buddies who says she'll read anything with a hot man and a kilt on the cover."

"I just finished your book, Her One Desire, and had to write to tell you how much I enjoyed it. Broc is now at the top of my "Favorite Hero" list. :) Her One Desire is exactly the kind of book I enjoy the most. The story was fast paced, suspenseful, and full of wonderful historical details that didn’t overpower the love story. I really liked how you wrote Lizzy. She was intelligent, courageous and very likable. I can’t wait until Highland Dragon is released. Like Her One Desire, it will have a permanent spot on my keeper shelf."

"Just wanted to let you know that I’m right in the middle of Her One Desire, work has kept me so busy I haven’t been able to finish it yet… but one of [my friends] called me to tell me that it was one of the best books she’s read all year. So of course we spent 30 minutes talking about why we loved it, and I had to stop the conversation short because I’m not done with it yet!"

“I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how much I am absolutely loving HER ONE DESIRE. I started it yesterday and was up until 4am because I couldn't put it down. Broc and Lizzy are fantastic together and he is a hero, one to die for.

While Broc is an amazing hero and has all the qualities in a historical that I look for in a hero; stronger, dependable, honorable and willing to die for the woman he loves it is Lizzy that is the book. Her strength and her courage and as with my frustration with historicals grows because they've become 'too modern' and my biggest annoyance is the heroine has become GI Jane in a corset, resembling a 21st century heroine rather than true to her time - I loved Lizzy! She shows that a historical heroine's character doesn't have to be drastically changed to placate today's readers who get offended by the past. She is totally kicking ass with her quite determination and her newfound strength and I'm not even done with the book yet.

You did a fabulous job with Lizzy - I'm almost at the end and she is so lovely and she's simply one of the best heroines I've read in a long time.

I absolutely adore this book!”
