Title: A Most Intriguing Temptation

Author: Kelli A. Wilkins

Genre: Historical/Fantasy Romance blended with Adventure

A Most Intriguing Temptation is the second story in the Royal Desires trilogy that began with A Most Unusual Princess and ends with A Most Unfortunate Prince. Together, they make up a fun series, but each story stands alone as a separate read.

A Most Intriguing Temptation has a little bit of everything: adventure, humor, sizzling love scenes, an element of danger, and even a drop of sadness. This book also introduces readers to Elara’s charming, womanizing, “bad-boy” brother, Prince Allan. (He becomes the focus of the third book in the series.)

Here’s the book summary and a mini-excerpt:

After only four months of marriage to Princess Elara, Prince Dalton is sent to Emperor Salizar’s pleasure palace on business. Not wanting to be left behind, Elara risks her personal safety and sneaks along on the trip.

Aided by her mischievous brother, Prince Allan, she disguises herself as one of Salizar’s sultry “kharim” women and decides to test Dalton’s loyalty. Masquerading as Oonish, Elara goes out of her way to tempt Dalton at every turn. Despite Dalton’s resolve to resist the indulgent girls, he finds himself falling under the spell of the mysterious Oonish.

After nearly giving in to temptation, Dalton discovers Elara’s trickery and turns the tables on her, making her into his submissive playmate. Their fun and games are quickly shattered when Emperor Salizar learns about Elara’s deception. He holds the royals prisoner and condemns Elara to a fate worse than death.

Can Dalton save Elara before it’s too late, or will her prank bring about the end of their love?

Bonus! This e-book includes a sneak peek at the third book in the Royal Desires series: A Most Unfortunate Prince.

A Mini-Excerpt:

Elara dipped the soap into the water and lathered Dalton’s wide back. She took her time and trailed her hands over his hard muscles. She loved stroking his thick chest and broad shoulders after lovemaking. Sometimes just looking at his nude body made her eager for him.

“You are very strong, Your Highness, with many big muscles.”

He chuckled. “I train hard to stay in good condition.”

She massaged his back. “I shall give you a good rub. It will drain the tension out of you and make you feel good.” She kneaded a knot in his neck, and he moaned.

“That feels good. You have very skilled hands.”

“All the better to give you pleasures. You’re so stiff.” She started lathering his chest.

He groaned and leaned back against her.

If she got him to relax, she could work her magic on him. “I am happy you kept me, Your Highness. I promise not to disappoint you. I will make your stay here most pleasurable,” she said as she trailed her soapy hand across his flat stomach.

“I’m sure you can, Oonish. I have no doubt of that,” he replied, chuckling.

“Whenever you would like to look, merely ask.” Little by little, she was breaking through his defenses. As she went to re-lather her hands, the soap slid out of her grip and disappeared under the water. “Oh, I’ll get that.”

She reached around Dalton’s hip and slipped her hand between his legs. Her fingers grazed his penis and she gasped. He was hard. “My word! Are you still so inflamed from Dashuri’s dance?”

“Nay, that faded. It’s the warm water. It stirs me.”

“I knew you wished to keep me for your pleasures,” she whispered as she closed her hand around him…
