New York Times bestselling author Francis Ray turns up the heat in All That I Desire, a sizzling Grayson Friends novel about a woman's life, liberty…and pursuit of passion.
LOVE IS NEVER PICTURE-PERFECT.
Nothing can stop a woman like Skylar Dupree once she makes up her mind. Defying her family and leaving law school, she's landed her dream job as an event director at the prestigious Navarone Resorts and Spas in Arizona. It's all that Skylar's ever desired—until she sees Rio Sanchez, the resort's head of security and Blade Navarone's own personal bodyguard. He's the sexiest, most striking man she's ever met.
SOMETIMES IT'S EVEN BETTER…
When Skylar starts planning a huge charity auction at the resort, it's Rio's job to keep an eye on the prized art she collects from donors. Though he's not blind to Skylar's beauty, Rio is nothing if not professional—and he refuses to make a move. But when a mysterious stranger enters the picture—and puts Skylar's life in danger—Rio attempts to protect her…only to be told, in no uncertain terms, that Skylar is capable of taking care of herself. Her brazen independence is enough to drive Rio crazy…with desire. Could it be that the strong, hard-hearted Rio has finally met his match?
"As always, Ray leads her readers on a mesmerizing journey of drama and love."—A Romance Review
In this improbable contemporary romance, 10th in the Grayson Friends series, beautiful and successful resort event director Skylar Dupree gets tired of yearning for handsome, stoic security director Rio Sanchez and decides it's time to be more proactive. Dressing provocatively and trying to entice Rio with delicious food has little effect, however, since Rio has no interest in a relationship. Despite his obvious lack of interest, Skylar continues to throw herself at him, refusing to take no for an answer. As Rio slowly begins to cave to his colleague's unceasing efforts, Skylar's safety is threatened by an unknown source. When Rio realizes just how much danger Skylar is in, he begins to reevaluate what she really means to him. There's no appeal in the too-perfect cast of talented and rich players, nor in Skylar's over-the-top infatuation and aggressive behavior, which makes Rio's love for her look like Stockholm syndrome.

All That I Desire
I thought my favorite book in this series was Luke's and Catherine's story; but no, this one gave it a big run for the money. It had more storylines, more drama, plots were perfectly timed, and just none stop. Loved it. Loved it. Loved it. My favorite, then Luke/Catherine, next let's not forget Sierra and Blade's story.
I've read them all (the Grayson's, Taggarts, Falcons, McBrides, and all their friends). Now trying to decide which new series to start on next - Good Job Mrs. Ray.
Sweet and Happy. :)
