What happens when a man of unshakable conviction

meets the woman who rocks his world?

Pete Higgins is an honorary Westmoreland, a man of his word—of course he’ll put duty to his orphaned niece first. Too bad the temporary nanny is tempting him with every look. Myra Hollister captivates him. But she’s keeping dangerous secrets, the kind that remind Pete of all he’s lost before and what he can’t afford to lose again…


Delectably delicious! With DUTY OR DESIRE (the fifth book in The Westmoreland Legacy series) Brenda Jackson brings us the ultimate of heroes … he’s a lawman, he’s loyal, he’s ruggedly handsome … and he simply melted this readers heart!

Sheriff Pete Higgins is an attention grabbing character. He’s strong and fierce in his love and protection for those he cares about, but he’s easily soft and tender when showering love on his infant niece. He was easy to like, enjoyable and heartwarming.

Myra was likable right from the start. She has secrets that she’s not sharing, but they aren’t detrimental to Pete and their relationship. I liked the gentleness she brought out in him and the way she brought him back to life again.

I highly recommend this story for anyone who loves a secure man who simply melts when the right woman comes along. There were some fireworks along the way, but their relationship was a slow, steady burn and oh so satisfying. Great character development, a fast paced story line and just enough drama to keep us guessing. I really enjoyed Pete and Myra!
