Reviewed by Talia Ricci



Mandy Cooper, a museum director, knows that her outward appearance has nothing to do with the woman she is on the inside.  On the outside she is confident, formal, and appropriate, however on the inside she is an erotic woman unafraid of her sexuality.  The only person she allows to see the inner “Mandy” is her lover, Jared Cabrillo.  With Jared, Mandy is able to let loose and set her sexuality free.  A fan of Catherine Burke, a nineteenth century artist, Mandy is almost fanatical about finding Catherine’s diary – she wants to confirm Catherine’s relationship with Atacar, the Native American who was supposedly Catherine’s lover.   Unbeknownst to Mandy, Catherine’s diary is closer than she thinks.

The Art of Desire is so hot even I blushed!  While not specifically a time travel book, The Art of Desire, utilizing Catherine’s diary, lets readers into Catherine and Atacar’s world and love affair.  Readers are treated to passionate, soulful, and erotically charged love scenes featuring Mandy and Jared as well as a look into Catherine and Atacar’s relationship.  Neither Jared, nor Mandy ever expected the feelings they had for each other – they each thought their affair to be easily finished. How wrong they were. 

Cherie Feather knocked me over with a feather for sure with The Art of Desire!  Each touch, kiss, and scorching glance weaved its way around me and I was a goner!  Don’t miss Ms. Feather’s next Berkley Heat release, Masquerade, coming next year.  I have already pre-ordered it!
