Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Copious glitz and glamour bonkbusters grace the shelves this year. One with perhaps more meat than the rest is this female style James Bond caper. Full of adventure and exotic locations, it stars a plucky woman waking up on her wedding morning in Thailand to find her husband murdered beside her and the weapon in her hand. She has no option but to flee … and then the fun begins. This has pace, mystery and hot sex. Great fun.

If you like Louise Bagshawe you might also like to read books by Jackie Collins, Jo Rees and Jilly Cooper.

Synopsis

Desire by Louise Bagshawe

A compulsive, edge-of-your-seat read from a bestselling author, combining glamour, thrills and dangerous passion Lisa Costello is leading a charmed life -- until she wakes up the morning after her glamorous Thailand wedding to find her new husband Josh dead in their bed, the murder weapon in her hand. She remembers learning at the wedding that Josh had been unfaithful, but she certainly doesn't remember killing him. As Lisa flees the scene for Europe, ex-FBI trainee Sam Murray is on her trail. Catching up with her, he's quickly convinced she's been set up, and they start to work out which of movie producer Josh's many enemies could be behind the hit. It's a race against time to unearth the truth and keep Lisa out of jail -- or gunned down by the professional assassin tailing them. And the danger only adds to the excitement of the passion brewing between them...
