Royce Hastings came from an Aristocrat household. He shouldn’t have had to make a deal with the devil. But, his father had left his family destitute, and Royce needed money to free his mother and sisters who were now indentured slaves. Bishop was a greedy, evil man and Royce should have known better than to have anything to do with him. But he didn’t, and now Bishop was blackmailing him. Royce was charged with finding the Island where Tristan, a famous pirate, and his wife, Diane, were hiding. Royce knew that Bishop planned on killing Tristan, making slaves of the Islanders, and taking Diane for himself. And if Royce didn’t deliver, Bishop would send his mother and sisters to a place far worse than they were in, now.
As if Royce’s life wasn’t complicated enough, he had to go and fall in love with the Island’s healer, Simone, make friends with Tristan, his wife, and many Islanders. How could he bring Bishop’s evil to the Island, now? But, if he didn’t, what would happen to his mother and sisters?
Days of Desire is an entertaining read. Fans of adult historical fiction romance will find this book enjoyable.
