I'm in awe of Keta Diablo's gifted writing ability. She paints such vivid pictures with her words, and takes us into a beautiful romance with no lulls or heavy back story. The 19th century time period was given justice in Decadent Deceptions and whisked me away to another world with the imagery, setting, and brilliant dialogue between characters." 5 STARS * • * • "Decadent Deceptions is a thoroughly sensuous historical erotic romance. Keta Diablo's rich backgrounds set off the antics of her characters to perfection. With all the misunderstandings of a good romantic comedy and a terrifyingly menacing subplot, the reader will be entranced throughout. I always enjoy Ms. Diablo's work and this book was no exception. It made me realize how versatile she is and look forward to her next release." 4.75 STARS * • * "Ms. Diablo is a master at weaving a tantalizing tale of lust and intrigue and Decadent Deception is no exception to this rule. I just couldn't put the book down." C. Waits Blog, Five Stars

* • * This was a hot, erotic read, with a little bit of spicy voyeurism thrown into the mix. The characters Ms. Diablo created were fun, witty and even zany at times. They were a joy to read and I found myself sad when the novel ended just because I loved the characters." Moonlight lace & Mayhem Reviews, Five Stars,

* • * "Simply put, I have found myself a new author. I am so surprised she hasn't been picked up by some big publishing companies. She has the talent and the skills to make it big! She was also a wonderful writer to work with in the review process. I personally can't wait to read her other books now that I have found her. This is one author I will be watching for new releases in the future." My Overstuffed Book shelf - Five Stars

Amy Ramsey
I’m astounded by Keta’s writing versatility (having read and loved “Where the Rain is Made”), and her ability to paint scenes where the reader lives with the characters. Fizzing with mystery and sizzling with sex, there is never a dull moment in her books and “Decadent Deceptions” will not disappoint her fans one bit.

Romance Alley - Denise A
Ms. Diablo's writing style is a flowing cascade of emotion and sensuality. I totally enjoyed Decadent Deceptions and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading a spicy historical. The author beautifully blended a touch of southern charm and history with a steamy love story.
Two Lips Reviews - Marianne L
Diablo is a master at weaving a tantalizing tale of lust and intrigue and Decadent Deception is no exception to this rule. I just couldn’t put the book down. I was continually left wondering what Olivia was going to do next. She is brash and outspoken and I found her to be a refreshing heroine. The sparks between the two keep you on fire throughout the whole book, and believe me when I tell you the ending is a shocker. Decadent Deceptions is very well done Ms. Diablo.

The problem with MissBreedlove’s daring plan, is that if it goes awry, her reputation will be ruinedand no respectable gentleman will have her, putting her in the worst possibleposition. Morgan Gatewood, for his part, has been wanting to make Olivia hisfor a very long time, and will let nothing stand in his way. Decadent Deceptions is a thoroughly sensuoushistorical erotic romance. Keta Diablo’s rich backgrounds set off the antics ofher characters to perfection. With all the misunderstandings of a good romanticcomedy and a terrifyingly menacing subplot, the reader will be entrancedthroughout. I always enjoy Ms. Diablo’s work and this book wasno exception. It made me realize how versatile she is and look forward to hernext release.

Review by Jen: The concept of Decadent Deceptions is quite interesting. I did question some of the accuracy of the historical detail (such as some of the spoken phrases), but it didn't distract from the book. The love scenes were red-hot and explicit, but fit well into the story. I suppose the only thing that really bothered me was that when the book was over I felt kind of short-changed when it came to the actual romance between Morgan and Olivia. More often than not, the love just wasn't believable and it just seemed like their relationship was based on lust. Overall, I did enjoy the book. And if you're looking for a hot read, a historical erotica, Decadent Deceptions is a great option.

When you drive through your neighborhood and people have their windows open, do you look inside? I don’t mean peeping tom, but more just passing interest as you drive by? How do they have their furniture set up? What are they watching on tv? And just what are they doing??? I do. I have a bit of a voyeur in me, so I was not surprised at all when I loved Decadent Deceptions. Keta Diablo had it right when she named this book Decadent, because my-oh-my, it surely is. This story takes us back to Georgia in 1856. Olivia Breedlove just discovered that her father’s last will and testament orders her married within six months if she wants to inherit her portion of the estate. But Olivia is no blushing violet, she is a modern thinking woman – and she intends to find a loophole. And boy, does she! And it includes a few visits to the local madame’s to see if she can learn a thing or two - and she enlists the help of her brother, Cain, and her neighbor, Morgan (whom she is secretly in love with, by the way) I thought Olivia was very enigmatic. She’s a young woman, struggling against the confines of the times. But she is also intelligent and a bit audacious, and I really enjoyed reading about her different antics and angsts through the story. But what good would a historical erotic romance be if there were no secrets? Trust me, this story has more secrets than you could shake a stick at! Whodunit? Who is going to do it? And who wants to do it?? Let’s talk about her neighbor, Morgan. Morgan is a bit of a playboy, he’s very wealthy, a tad manipulative, and positively head over heels for Olivia. And he is just beyond wonderful. Even when I suspected him of something horrible, I found myself rationalizing and finding a way to keep on loving him. At times I thought he was insane, and others I just knew it. Treachery and debauchery are all around in this story, and it was perfect. Someone is murdering people, and Keta makes sure you suspect everyone – I just love that! And Morgan and his blasted teasing!! This is why it is a good thing I was not around back then, because I don’t think I could have stopped myself from jumping all over that man. There was definitely a lot of events in this story to keep me engaged and entertained. The characters in this story are very colorful and vivid, and they were so much fun. I really loved every single page. And on top of all that it was hot and steamy, full of delicious teasing, with some extra additions of mystery. I am new to Keta’s writing, but I can absolutely see why she has such a loyal following – now plus one more. This is one of those stories I could see myself reading over and over because it was just so much fun to be along for the ride. If you like erotic historical romance, then this is definitely a book you should check out! You know, a book doesn't get over 25 Five Star Reviews for no reason!
