#divinedesire #audreycarlan
When veteran yoga instructor Mila Mercado was asked to attend a new class and report back to the studio, she had no idea that the over-confident, ruggedly sexy newbie Atlas Powers was going to teach more than just a very controversial and erotic form of yoga. 
New instructor Atlas Powers has two passions in life: his music career and steamy by-the-book Mila Mercado. He teaches yoga by day and works at his passion by night until the fiery woman walks into his class and gives the term desire a whole new dimension. 
In this wicked hot tale of love and lust, two struggling artists are trying to make their dreams come true. Only one thing gets in the way… until they stop fighting long enough to burn up the sheets and the yoga studio with a divine desire neither of them can avoid.

Review Copy provided by Author

In Divine Desire, Ms. Carlan takes us back to Lotus House and the family of yogis. Mila and Atlas have both been secondary characters in previous books, so it is nice to get to know them better here.
Both Mila and Atlas have other pursuits and dreams besides teaching at the yoga studio, so that isn't as front and center as it has been in some of the other books, but it still adds a unique element to the story.
A relationship that starts as two adversaries quickly becomes passionate and leads to so much more and transitions into a partnership/romance almost without anyone realizing it. Both Atlas and Mila are strong characters and it was interesting to watch them balance their individual needs with those of their relationship.
The past rears it's head for each of them and they both struggle with the results. Atlas is a true sweet character and I loved his grand gesture to show Mila just how silly he'd been and what she meant to him.
Well written and fun, Divine Desire is a great addition to the series. Ms. Carlan does an excellent job of giving us glimpses of previous characters, so we know what's going on with them and expanding the circle of friends so we have ideas of where the series might be headed.
