 Part of the Desires Entwined series – Ideally read between Designs of Desire and Desires’ Guardian.

Despite his past abuse, James has come to terms with his relationship with his Dom and lover Seth. Seth treats James with all the trust and love his sub desires. There is only one thing left to do to make it all complete: Seth needs to put a collar on James.

Mari's Review:

*** Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie in exchange for a fair and honest review. ***

James is over the moon that his Dom and lover Seth has asked him to marry him, despite James limitations and that he's so considerate with him. Last thing he expected was for Seth to want to take it a step further and collar him.

This was a delightful vignette, short, hot and sweet and just perfect to showcase the depth of the love between James and Seth, despite all they had to go through to get to this point. Very recommendable!

Rating: 4.5 Stars!


“I found it a beautiful tale of unhappiness changed to romance and then love with a happy ending.”
—Rainbow Book Reviews, on “Designs of Desire”
“Tempeste O’Riley clearly has designs on our attention with Designs of Desire, a story as heart breaking as it is heart warming."
—Sensual Reads, on “Designs of Desire”  

“The writer did an excellent job with the characters, they are likable and perfect.  Not perfect in the way that they have no flaws, but in a way that they grab you and complement each other.”
—Love Bytes Reviews, on “Temptations of Desire”
