Vikki’s Musings

I received a request from the author to read and review Undone by his Desire. I had not read anything by Ms. Carnie before, but the premise sounded interesting, so I decided to take a chance. I am so glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful book.

When Daisy Wallace, owner of a B & B on Ocracoke Island, opens her door to a stranger, one that she’d sent a cancellation notice to, she isn’t sure what to make of the mysterious, yet very alluring man, Micah King. With the island in the midst of a strong, she does not turn him away, even though she is sleep deprived from taking care of her friend’s infant daughter.

Micah King owns King Group Investigative Service. He agrees to search for a set of triplets his client gave up for adoption thirty years ago. When he meets Daisy, sparks fly for the green-eyed, petite, red-head. As he goes about proving she is the youngest of the long ago adopted girls, he fast becomes enchanted by the gentle Daisy.

When Daisy learns why Micah showed up at her B & B, will she look past his initial deceit, or will she turn her back on what could be an everlasting love?

Undone by his Desire is a well-written romance with an intriguing and unique story-line. Daisy is a fantastic character with her independent spirit, yet at the same time, she’s a vulnerable young woman who has been hurt and betrayed by her late husband. Her loyalty to her friend, who left her nine month old daughter on her doorsteps, is touching. I quickly became vested in her character, and wanted her to have her chance at love.

I loved Micah from the first page. What’s not to like? He’s a gorgeous ex-Navy SEAL. Any man who is more concerned about his partner’s needs than his own is a winner in my book. His integrity comes through when he denies his own desires while fulfilling Daisy’s until he can tell her why he came into her life.

The chemistry between Daisy and Micah is evident from their first meeting, and the sexual tension builds as they come to terms with each other’s secrets. Because of the comment about adult language and explicit sex, I expected this story to be extremely erotic with only a minimal plot. It is far from that. While the love scenes are detailed, the emotions lying under the sex is what wins the scenes for me.  

This is a fast-paced, emotionally-charged read with plenty of twists that kept me flipping the pages on my Kindle as fast as possible. If you enjoy a tale of love with a bit of mystery and intrigue mixed in, then you will love this engaging romance. This is the first book in The Lost Sisters trilogy, and I can’t wait to read the other two books. I’m sure I will enjoy them as much as I did Undone by his Desire. Happy reading!
