Publisher's Summary

Courageous Minerva Peabody, a poor but passionate playwright, is cursed to be living in Elizabethan England, when women most assuredly did not write plays. Determined to succeed, Min impulsively enlists the help of the first man she sees to be her "cover".
Blake, her chosen surrogate, a handsome blue-eyed sea captain with his own agenda, is a man with a mysterious past, a wondrous pair of shoulders, and an irresistible aura of intrigue. As his own mission - ferreting out the cad who got his sister pregnant - collides with Min's nascent career, his dilemma is keen: protect either his family's honor or the woman who is slowly but surely winning his heart.
Fast-paced, funny, richly detailed, and with a deliciously dark edge, Her Secret Desire speaks to any woman who, no matter what, never gives up on her dreams.

Good story but too long in places

I found this book was too long. It dragged in places and a lot of sections were repetitive without moving the story along.

Couldn't stop listening!

Having just come out of a tedious historical romance series with dithering leading ladies who revelled in being damsels in distress, this was an absolute breath of fresh air. There was no filler, no repetition to make up page numbers and the characters were flawed but likeable. Absolutely loved it! I've already downloaded the next. Also, the narrator was perfect for this book. Again, absolutely loved it!
