#107 (#43) - Her Only Desire ~ Gaelen Foley
This one was really the first the the Knight Cousins' spin-offs, about Georgiana Knight (Sister to Gabriel & Derek).
Raised all her life in India, Georgiana is very often left alone, but has made a life and friends independently, and therefore sees no wrong in inviting the cool and reserved Ian Prescott, Marquess of Griffith to stay when he arrives on a British diplomatic mission.
On his very first encounter with her he ends up effecting a rescue to save her life, and puts her under house arrest whilst he goes off on his mission to Japur .... she has other ideas and follows ... which leads her into uncovering the truth but causing a diplomatic nightmare of Ian, and heavy fighting by her brothers to protect her (in which Gabriel receives his injuries).
She flees alone on a Knight ship to England, where she is determined to conquer the ton, and fights Ian's protections for all she is worth. Infuriated, but captivated nonetheless, will this lonely Marquess fall for her, and reveal his own secrets?
On the whole a 4 **** Star read.
