When world-famous drummer Ross Daniels agrees to spend the weekend at Darling Roberts’ lake house, he becomes a distraction she doesn’t need … her cursed house is distraction enough! A secluded lake house with a dark history … a rock star and a sheltered young woman … you’ll find all the passion and suspense you could wish for in T. D. Hassett’s hot new romance Darling’s Desire.

Darling Roberts is going back to the lake house her mother disappeared from thirteen years ago. She needs to decide to stay or sell. The locals believe the place cursed, but her best friend thinks it would be a blast to spend the weekend there before heading to Europe. BFF Madison is determined to set Darling up, even if that means dragging a recently widowed rock-and-roll drummer to the scene of a murder.

Ross Daniels has a secret. He can’t stand the pitying looks well-wishers have given him since his wife’s accidental death. The European leg of the Becket tour can’t come soon enough. A weekend stay at a mutual friend’s lake house seems like a decent way to kill a couple of days before hopping a plane, at least until he spends some time with temptation herself.

Passions ignite and Ross feels his heart beginning to beat again. Darling isn’t who he thought she was, and he can’t get enough of her sweet soul and lush curves. Darling is determined to take charge of her life, and the lake house is just the place to begin. Ross is a scrumptious distraction, but she knows she has to keep things in perspective. Why would a world-famous drummer want to hang out with her in a small town even the locals want her run out of?

A cute romance with mystery stirred in.  Loved the intrigue involved with the cursed lake house.  Thought it was great Darling was going back before deciding to sell it.  Drooled over Ross and loved his brooding way, especially as it mellowed.  Interesting twists with the visa, keys, and relatives.  It never stated it, but I felt David must've known all along.  Read this book straight through instead of doing household chores while my husband was at work today.  I definitely made out on this deal!  ARC provided in exchange for honest review.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story was entertaining, had a bit of mystery and intrigue, a rock band that was established and settled, and a great little romance.  Darling (yes, that's her real name - BTW, I love that) has decided to take the summer to find herself and decide her course in life at the home she inherited from her grandma on the lake. She's telling this to her BFF Madison over lunch. Madison's husband (Link) meets them there and brings along Ross (the drummer in the band). Madison is determined to spend the weekend at the lake house with Darling before the band starts their European tour in a few weeks. Once she convinces Link and subsequently Ross gets on board, they head out to the lake house. When it's time for her guests to leave, we learn that there is a problem with Ross' visa so he has to stay behid with Darling until he's cleared to fly out of the country. There is attraction, denial and chemistry between Darling and Ross almost immediately. She's a bit inexperienced with men and doesn't want anything to do with ANOTHER musician.  He's several years older and is not looking for a relationship, but is fascinated by Darling. Strange things start happening at and to the house which appear to be deliberate and the police are called out repeatedly. The police are chalking it up to local teenagers, but Ross isn't buying that story and his protectiveness over Darling Rears its head. It was delightful to watch their closeness and attraction grow. There was an angsty couple of pages, but I was grateful it wasn't dragged out for the sake of more pages. It was perfectly placed and the timing of the entire book was spot on. This is book 3, but I'll have to go back and pick up the others as I liked this one so much. It can be read as a stand alone. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a smile in their heart.
