This is the second book in the series. It tells the story of how Jacques Dubrinsky and Shea O'Halloran came together.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The stranger silently summoned her across the continents, across the seas. He whispered of eternal torment, of endless hunger . . . of dark, dangerous desires. And somehow American surgeon Shea O'Halloran could feel his anguish, sense his haunting aloneness, and she ached to heal him, to heal herself.

Drawn to the far Carpathian mountains, Shea found a ravaged, raging man, a being like no other. And her soul trembled. For in his burning eyes, his icy heart, she recognized the beloved stranger who'd already become part of her. The imperious Carpathian male had compelled Shea to his side. But was she to be his healer... or his prey? His victim... or his mate? Was he luring her into madness... or would his dark desire make her whole?

Christine's Notes[edit | edit source]

This book was probably the most difficult of all the books to write because I had to strike such a balance with the hero, a very tormented individual, powerful and nearly mad. I felt the heroine was extremely courageous under very difficult circumstances. Dark Desire takes place in the Carpathian Mountains and some of the same characters appear again. Usually I start a book and instantly the story line flows to me, but I wasn't satisfied with the beginning of the book for a long, long time. In fact, I worked on the beginning chapter longer than the entire rest of the book! In the end I was very satisfied and can't wait for you to read it and love the characters as much as I do.
