On a lush, secluded island, one passionate adventure leads to another….Diana Fletcher means business. The beautiful, innocent, reverend’s daughter has traveled all the way to a tropical island off Madagascar on a mission: To find her brother—and to punish the man who drove him to a life of piracy. But when she comes face to face with the enemy in question, the handsome, powerfully seductive man is not at all what Diana expected…
Tristan Kent never intended to harm Diana’s brother. A man of humble origins, Tristan claims he tried to save him from another ruthless captain. Diana is desperate to believe he is telling the truth…and that the intoxicating desire that escalates between them is true as well. But can she trust him? Or is Tristan’s story—and his heart—nothing more than fool’s gold? Amid the haze of sensual delights and soaring ecstasy Tristan has in store for her, all will be revealed…

'First Comes Desire' is the first in a new series by the lovely Tina Donahue.
Diana wants to rescue her brother from the claws of the evil pirate. But nothing is what it seems. She gets involve in a life she didn't expect. Set in a beautiful island her life becomes a marvelous adventure. Of course, there will danger around the corner and jealousy threatening her life but it all add to the story.
As usual, the intensity is too much. There are passion, sensuality, and lots of chemistry. Whenever Diana and Tristan are together the pages burn and your heart starts to bit too fast.
The writing is very good and you cannot stop reading once you begin. I loved it and can't wait to read more books by Tina.
