She was a captive for months…until they set her free.
Biochemist Talya knew what she’d discovered was too dangerous to reveal. After two months as a captive of the mob, she’s broken…until she’s rescued by two devastatingly sexy men.
Relentless billionaire Henri Fortin gives Talya a safe place to recover…after purchasing her at a forbidden auction. It wasn’t the most traditional rescue, but now that she’s in his home, Henri will do anything to protect her.
Milo wasn’t able to save Talya before. He’s haunted by the fact that he had to walk away and leave her captive. Now that she’s secure he should leave…but he doesn’t want to. Because he’s drawn to Talya and Henri.
However the past, and the promises they made to Europe’s most powerful secret society, aren’t the only things standing in their way. They’re all keeping secrets…and the Camorra isn’t finished with Talya.
We first met at Talya and Milo in Suspicion’s Fire, book 7 in the Masters’ Admiralty series. Forced to leave her behind while he helped to rescue another Admiralty member, he’s since worked tirelessly to free her as well.
Henri is the extremely wealthy member who “buys” Talya, thus thrusting them together to keep her safe from the mafia-like organization who wants the knowledge she possesses. Close quarters lead to newfound feelings between the trio…who are not a formal Trinity.
I love the chemistry between these characters; their personalities compliment each other perfectly. Milo is dominant but quick to laugh, while Henri is less bold but sweetly sincere. Talya uncovers things about herself that she might not ever have realized without her relationship with these men.
Lots of action, as always, in this story. While some, such has human trafficking, is heartbreakingly real, other aspects of the story are more conjecture (maybe?) longtime fans will welcome the reappearance of past characters. It also made he realize I missed a book (forehead smack)!
I enjoyed the storyline, but my favorite part was the triad and their engaging relationship. Can’t wait to see whose next up to be matched!
Is it possible to have a happily ever after?
Desire’s Addiction is the eighth book in the Masters’ Admiralty series. I think this book would be best read with at least the previous book first. Talya has been held captive for months when she’s finally rescued. Milo and Henri are there to help her land safely and know that she’s not broken. They can’t deny their connection, but know better than to risk their hearts. When Talya is taken again, her men will do anything to bring her back, but is it possible for to have a happily ever after?
Wow, this book was absolutely fantastic. I adore this series so hard. I’m always slow to start these books, but once I get moving, I literally can’t put the book down until it’s over - which is exactly how I was up way too late this morning, finishing the book! I needed to know what happened next with this trinity! Talya, Milo, and Henri we’re just absolutely fantastic, full of love and passion and hope, no matter what their circumstances are. Talya is so smart, a little warrior in her own right, and I loved that she was fighting for her future with her men. She was brave and daring, knew her own strengths, and I loved that she saw a counselor to help affirm everything she felt. Milo was dark and dangerous, but still had a lightness inside that showed he wasn’t completely jaded. I loved his loyalty to Talya, too. Henri was just wonderful! His joy for life was infectious, and just what his partners needed. I adored this triad together, even when they weren’t supposed to be. Their passion was so steamy hot, their drive got them far, and I loved that their hearts were just completely taken by each other. This book definitely does not answer all of the questions I’ve had over this story arc, so I am dying to find out more, and I am on pins and needles to see who and what will come next! This series just has it all - danger, secrets, passion, love, and once you start, you can’t stop!
I’ve been waiting for this book!
I've been waiting for this book for what felt like forever (though not really)...just to find out what was going on with Milo and Talya! Add in Henri and you have another fantastic book from Dubois & Carr. This book had everything that each of their books have..suspense, love, heartbreak and more. Add in Eric and you have such an interesting read. A definite 5 stars and cannot wait for the next!!! These books are that good! <3
