Desire (Chimera Club Stories #6)


Falling in love is a dangerous game.

I planned to smile.
I planned to flash my baby blues and washboard abs.
I planned to take Mila Samuels to bed and make her want to tell me all her secrets.
I didn’t plan to fall in love.

I planned to be nice to the new guy.
I planned to keep Tony McIntire away from unscrupulous women.
I planned to keep my secrets safe, like I have since I was a child.
I didn’t plan to fall in love.

We have so many secrets, but our desire for each other has made us both bold and reckless.

I would give him anything.

I would die to protect her.

When the truth comes out, will our love survive?

Desire is a quick read romantic suspense novel by romance author Cybill Cain, and the sixth book in the Chimera Club Stories series. In the traditional vein of suspenseful romance, two attractive players in the game of love find their sport spoiled when the power of true love compels them to change, but this book comes with a twist. Tony McIntire is intent on bedding the beautiful Mila Samuels, using all his wiles and physicality to drive her wild and have her doting on him, but he never planned on becoming so powerfully loyal to her. Mila, for her part, has childhood secrets that make it challenging for any man to truly get close to her, but meeting Tony makes her want to unlock those secrets at last.

By far the most interesting part of the tale is the fact that Mila is blind. In a world where appearance means everything, Tony certainly lives by that fact, but he can’t seduce Mila in any of the usual ways because the exterior he’s worked so hard on isn’t visible. Because Tony needs important information from Mila, he perseveres but finds it difficult to connect when revealing his true self and the insecurities therein. Cybill Cain does an excellent job of portraying Mila as a character with the very real struggles of disability, but also someone who is much more than that and not defined by it. If you’re looking for a brand new twist on romantic suspense that also has plenty of erotic moments, Desire: Chimera Club Stories is the read for you.
