Review of My Heart's Desire by Patricia Grasso

I originally read this book when it was first released in 1996.

Blythe has loved Roger Debrett all her life.  When he marries another woman she is devastated.   Blythe has inherited her mother's gift of the Druids Instinct.  Her mother tells her that Blythe and Roger are meant to be together, but just not at this time.

Five years later Roger is accused of his faithless wife's murder. and sent to the Tower.  After 3 months in the Tower there has been no new evidence but the Queen cannot release him without a public outcry, so her Courtiers come up with a solution.

Marry his mentor's daughter Blythe.  Roger agrees so that he can get out of the Tower and find the real killer to clear his name.  He vows not to touch Blythe so she can get an annulment and marry someone closer to her age.  He remembers her as a young child of 13 and is stunned that she has grown into a beautiful woman.

He is determined to resist her and not consummate the marriage.  Blythe will have none of his plan, she loves him and will do anything she can do to convince him that they belong together., even put herself in danger to find the villain to get her happily ever after.

This is a beautiful story that is magical, romantic and mysterious.  Court intrigue abounds with danger and betrayal.  I adored this book when I first read it and I loved it again in it's re-release.  Blythe and Roger are meant to be together, the Goddess says so!  The unveiling of the villain will be a surprise that you do not want to miss!!
