Shaun Preston and Allie are two North American journalists stationed at the exotic Aristo Island, sent by their newspaper to cover the upcoming celebration festivities for Prince Adrian Karedes' 30th birthday. The prince became the heir to the throne of Adamas after the king passed away, leaving the kingdom in political turmoil. While working and gathering information, they soon stumble upon a plot against Adrian. Allie must decide between professional impartiality or her feelings towards the prince.

Harlequin Presents: Hidden Object of Desire is a straightforward hidden object title based on a romantic novel series. One of the series book is included as a PDF file with the game. Most of the time, the objective is to find and click on all the items from a list at the left side of screen, on various locations related to the plot and cluttered with assorted objects scattered through the scenery. The hint button shows the position of one of the required items, but takes some time to recharge after use. The hint meter can be quickly refilled by collecting the Harlequin logos hidden on the scenes, or by finding two list items in succession.

There are mini-games between some of the locations that take place on a separate interactive screen. In the course of the game, the player has to guide Allie through a maze of hotel corridors and flip all the red squares on the path, reassemble a shredded invitation, remove pairs of jewels, click on the differences between two similar images, play a code-breaking game on a laptop computer to find the correct password for an encrypted memory card, and complete other similar challenges.
