A Most Intriguing Temptation

(Book 2 of the "Royal Desires" Trilogy)

This spicy historical/fantasy romance novel is the second book in the “Royal Desires” trilogy.  Although the stories are connected, each stands alone as an individual read.

A Most Intriguing Temptation

After only four months of marriage to Princess Elara, Prince Dalton is sent to Emperor Salizar’s pleasure palace on business. Not wanting to be left behind, Elara risks her personal safety and sneaks along on the trip.

Aided by her mischievous brother, Prince Allan, she disguises herself as one of Salizar’s sultry kharim women and decides to test Dalton’s loyalty. 


Masquerading as Oonish, Elara goes out of her way to tempt Dalton at every turn. Despite Dalton’s resolve to resist the indulgent girls, he finds himself falling under the spell of the mysterious Oonish.

After nearly giving in to temptation, Dalton discovers Elara’s trickery and turns the tables on her, making her into his submissive playmate. Their fun and games are quickly shattered when Emperor Salizar learns about Elara’s deception. He holds the royals prisoner and condemns Elara to a fate worse than death.

Can Dalton save Elara before it’s too late, or will her prank bring about the end of their love?

Praise for A Most Intriguing Temptation...


"5 Roses!" I thought the first book [A Most Unusual Princess] was hot, but this one is worth reading. Kelli did a superb job in this one and introduces us to a new side of Dalton. I loved this story and it's hard for me to give a Historical a 5 for the first part and a sequel but Kelli did a beautiful job in showing us a princess with stubborn heart to love and a man who completes her in every way. - Lena, Reviewer,

“4 Coffee Cups! Ms. Wilkins has created a page turning story that you cannot help but finish in one sitting. Dalton and Elara are unforgettable characters. The twists and turns make it impossible to figure out what happens next. This is definitely on this reader’s keeper shelf!" - Jenifer, Reviewer, Coffee Time Romance

"A Most Intriguing Temptation is truly exceptional and first rate! Kelli A. Wilkins is amazing. She captures you from the first moment Dalton speaks. I would love to see another book on this family giving Allan his own story. It would be interesting to see who can tame his wildness." - Sensual Reads
