New York Times bestselling author Francis Ray turns up the heat in All That I Desire, a sizzling Grayson Friends novel about a woman's life, liberty…and pursuit of passion.


Nothing can stop a woman like Skylar Dupree once she makes up her mind. Defying her family and leaving law school, she's landed her dream job as an event director at the prestigious Navarone Resorts and Spas in Arizona. It's all that Skylar's ever desired—until she sees Rio Sanchez, the resort's head of security and Blade Navarone's own personal bodyguard. He's the sexiest, most striking man she's ever met.


When Skylar starts planning a huge charity auction at the resort, it's Rio's job to keep an eye on the prized art she collects from donors. Though he's not blind to Skylar's beauty, Rio is nothing if not professional—and he refuses to make a move. But when a mysterious stranger enters the picture—and puts Skylar's life in danger—Rio attempts to protect her…only to be told, in no uncertain terms, that Skylar is capable of taking care of herself. Her brazen independence is enough to drive Rio crazy…with desire. Could it be that the strong, hard-hearted Rio has finally met his match?
