Monica Jackson spins a dark tale of political intrigue that will keep you locked into the pages until the very end. --Phoebe Imel
Ms. Jackson pens a romance tale that whets our appetites for more of the same. I personally have ordered all the rest of her books and look forward to reding them with as much enthusiasm as this one. --Betty Holloway
This was a wonderful story by Ms. Jackson. I wanted to re-read this story right before I picked up Tiffany's story Never Too Late For Love.--Sean D. Young
I WILL say that if you like a fast-paced novel that grabs your attention from the beginning and doesn't let go until the very end, then this is the book for you. Kara and Brent are a very human couple. Their first meeting is unconventional, to say the least! Everything about this novel is unusual, which is why I liked it so much. Ms. Jackson isn't afraid to push the envelope. It's not your average romance novel. These characters don't always behave according to societal rules. But then real-life is not cookie-cutter perfect. Nor is Kara or Brent. They have their problems, and they overcome them. Very inspirational for those of us who like a dose of reality in our modern-day fairy tales. Excellent job, Ms. Jackson! --Janice Sims
From her mother's death bed confession, Kara Smith learns her father is not only alive, but is a wealthy U.S. Senator who refused to marry her mother because he felt she would be a liability to his political aspirations. Determined to make her father pay for the pain and drudgery her mother suffered, Kara goes to Washington, seduces Brent Stevens (her father's right hand man), and then blackmails him into giving her a job in her father's office. Her actions set in motion a spiral of revenge she hopes will lead to her father's downfall.
But her plan works a bit too well. The attraction that sparks between her and Brent is the forerunner of explosive passion that threatens to disrupt all their lives. Caught in a web of deceit, betrayal and murder, Kara never imagines her search for revenge will lead to a fight for her own survival.
In HEART'S DESIRE, Monica Jackson offers romance readers the greatest gift of all: a story packed with adventure, mystery, a hero to sigh for, a heroine to cheer for and a romance that will warm our hearts for years to come. --Cheryl Ferguson, Romantic Times 4 1/2 stars, Top Pick
