Review: Desert Eden (Devereaux Family #3) by Patricia Grasso
Desert Eden - Patricia Grasso

When I first started reading this story I thought it reminded a lot of the stories I remember reading back in the 90’s … and then I realized it was first published in 1993 so it’s actually a re-release. To be honest had this story been first released recently I would have rated it one star however back in the day things were different so I can see why the story was written the way it was.

So, our heroine Heather is a spoiled brat that is accustomed to getting away with pretty much anything and everything, except with choosing the man she gets to marry. When she meets dashing but “savage” Khalid and is threatened with becoming a slave she behaves as expected and never bends to his will. The interaction between the two was interesting to say the least. It was pretty funny at times but it also tended to be annoying.
I had too keep reminding myself of her age most of the time so I didn’t hate her for being such a shrew and him for acting so superior.

The story and plot were interesting enough to keep me up until late at night but I felt the pace and dialogue were somewhat stilted, but again that could have been my fault because I haven’t read anything like this in a looooong while. Overall it was an ok read and I’ll probably be reading more from this author.

*** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

Love in a Mist
Love in a Mist - Patricia Grasso This is book four in the "Devereux Family" series. Also this book was first released back around 1994. I was glad that it has been re-relased with a new cover along with giving me a chance to read the book now since I missed it the first time out. This is truly passionate, funny and good romance!
Keely Glendower left without family after her mother dies, she decides to go forward and find her natural father. This puts her on the path to meeting Richard Devereux A Earl, the English queen’s “Midas”. Richard is quickly attracted to Keely and she is different that most women he meets. I enjoyed their talk/banter and was glad to have a chance to read this book.
