sensual and spirited romance by a masterful new writer."
Reviewer for Publisher Weekly
Her One Desire, by debut author Kimberly Killion, is what I’ve been looking for in a medieval novel for a long time. Is it steamy and sensual; the fact that they are both engaging and intelligent characters enhances the passion between Broderick and Lizbeth. The secondary characters were also enlightening and oftentimes provided humorous and eye-opening statements that made for a witty trek into Scotland amidst the danger and betrayal surrounding them.
I like the fact that Kimberly Killion took a mysterious piece of actual history and wrote a powerful plot while not overpowering the love story or characters with facts and data...Her One Desire went automatically on my keeper shelf, it’s a novel I’m sure every Medieval romance fan will devour and cherish for years to come. I also hope the author plans to continue writing about these characters and time period, as I miss them already.
The Mystic Castle
One of the best things about this book is the transformation in Lizbeth from beginning to end. She goes from being a little mousy type of girl to woman who is worthy of a powerful laird like Broderick. HER ONE DESIRE is full of fabulous elements—such as an unwanted betrothal, secrets kept by parties, a scheming, sneaky villain, fabulous sexual chemistry and great secondary characters! It is also a fast paced and ADDICTIVE read. One minute you will be opening the first page, and four hours later you will be looking at the last page of the book and wondering where the time went! This is a phenomenal debut book from Kimberly Killion and I cannot wait to read whatever she comes up with next!
Author Kimberly Killion bursts onto the historical scene with an adventure unlike many others. From the opening pages, I was enthralled by Lizbeth's and Broderick's story.
Her One Desire is a beautifully crafted love story with unforgettable characters and brisk plotting throughout. The author's vivid sense of time and place drops the reader right into the thick of things; witness to the danger and desire prevalent with each moment. Treachery, political intrigue and deception all combine to make this a must-read debut novel. I plan to watch Kimberly Killion; she is sure to be a star on the rise.
Her One Desire combines rich characterization, a sexy romance, and a suspenseful plot into a riveting read from start to finish...Don't pick this one up expecting a light read but rather a romance with a wide range of emotion from humor, to sensuous tension, to something more soulful. In Her One Desire, Kimberly Killion creates a portrait of transforming love, one that reaches into the very darkness and brings a very special happy ending to the hero and the heroine.
Amid the tension-filled political dangers, Kimberly Killion creates moments of delightful, humorous twists that lighten the heart. The language here is full of colloquialisms, giving a nice texture to the book. On a medieval level, this book has a certain tone that encapsulates the medieval world. Dramatic, dangerous and full of passion, Her One Desire makes the reader feel the tensions of love amidst this precarious time in English history, a time rife with intrigue, while also giving the reader a glimpse at the tensions between England and the Scottish border lands.
Kimberly Killion's debut medieval romance is fresh in vision and a very welcome addition to the genre.

Kimberly Killion is a master storyteller. Her creative wonders are not limited to the main characters in this story. Ms. Killion provides a dynamic cast of secondary characters, including a chicken named Beatrice, a wonderfully spunky old Grandmum, and a cousin named Smitt who had me giggling through the book.

Kimberly Killion skillfully draws readers into her world of political upheaval during the end of the fifteenth century by weaving a tapestry of a love between two extraordinary individuals whose story is enriched with the presence of some very intriguing characters. One can only wonder at what else she has in store for us, and if this is to become the very captivating start of an engrossing series.
Romance Junkies Reviewer
The War of the Roses provides a fascinating backdrop for this well-crafted romance. The appeal of Killion's characters comes from their honor, intelligence and humanity. As they play out their story within the confines of the mores and events of the era, they bring history to life and make it accessible.
HER ONE DESIRE is a luscious historical romance with incredible characters and a great story overall. If you like sexy, to die for heroes, Kimberly Killion has written the ultimate one with Broderick. His devotion to his friends, family and that of Lizabeth is very sweet. Poor Lizabeth is a woman with the weight of the world on her shoulders during a time where a lady like herself has no options. She is very brave, loving and filled with such optimism. And don't be surprised if you find yourself laughing at the initial interactions both she and Broderick have. Their bantering back and forth is worth the read alone.
