A man more potent than any drug.
It's 2202 and on board ES Siren, the brilliant Doctor Lily Kwan has worked in secret to develop an antidote for the aphrodisiac rape drug, sexmeth.
She'd be overjoyed if it wasn't for an embarrassing problem: the antidote has no effect on her extraordinary reaction to Connor Madison, the Siren's tough quartermaster. Scientifically, it should be impossible, but the man's a raging fever in her blood. If a single dark glance sets Lily on fire, a kiss might kill her dead – but what a way to go!
A former gang rat from the slums of a dying world, Con came up the hard way, so when geeky Doctor Kwan tops his hit list of possible drug runners, nothing's going to save her—not her family's money, nor her clever mind.
Not even the smile in her eyes.

I have enjoyed the stories by Ms. Rosetti in the past so when I saw that she had something new and different out, I just had to read it.  And with Yours to Desire by Denise Rosetti I was reminded why I enjoy her work, she is a wonderful writer!  I love this world that she as built in the ES Siren series.  I haven’t read the other stories in the series which are written by different writers but I didn’t need to in order to understand and enjoy this story.  In Connor we are given a gritty character who is pist.  His honor is tarnished even if he is the only one who thinks so.  And no one will take advantage of this former gutter rat with a heart of gold.  Lily is unattainable, at least Connor thinks so but as he gets to know her, he finds himself smitten.  I loved this take on characters from opposite backgrounds finding love.  It is an age old story but Ms. Rosetti made it feel new.  Lily had a strength even she didn’t know she had and Connor learned to look beyond the surface to see the strong inner core that made Lily shine. 
I thoroughly enjoyed this story by Ms. Rosetti and thought she gave us a story full of layers.  She took a simple character plot and gave her twist.  She then gave us characters that were likeable and complex.  Ms. Rosetti is an author I enjoy and this story did not disappoint.
