Desert Eden based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
'DESERT EDEN' by Patricia Grasso is book Three in the "Devereux Family" series. This is the story of Heather Devereux and Khalid Beg. This is a re-release...which was first published round 1993. I wasn't luckily enough to have read it when it first came out so I was happy to get the chance this time. This is easily a standalone book. Heather was headed to a marriage of convince, when she is taken. Heather finds herself a 'slave' of Khalid Beg. Khalid Beg finds Heather to be a strong women who isn't easily broken. Khalid Beg has some strong actions and at times they had some funny scene. Overall enjoyed this book and would look to read more. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
This is the third book in the Devereux series. If you haven't read the previous books, I highly recommend that you do so. Desert Eden is about Heather Devereux and Khalid. I adored Heather!! She was extremely funny, headstrong, and just an all around great character! Khalid had to grow on me. By the middle of the book I loved him too! They have such chemistry together. I love how she is always herself and tries to make him understand what is important to her. Of course, I also enjoyed how they argued!! Very funny in a lot scenes! I've always been a fan of Patricia Grasso's books and this one just reaffirmed for me how great of a writer she truly is.
This is a fast paced historical read with lots of drama and suspense. The Heather is a spoiled brat and Khalid plans to tame her. The story is entertaining and held my interest throughout. I really liked it.
Desert Eden (Book 3 Devereux Series) by Patricia Grasso is a romantic, passionate, and lush Elizabethan Romance, set in England. While, book 3 in the "Devereux" series, it can be read as a stand alone. *A re-release*. Patricia Grasso is a new author to me and one I thoughly enjoyed. This is the story of Lady Heather Devereux and sn Ottoman prince, Prince Khalid, who is handsome, sexy, and seeking revenge. So he uses Heather to gain his vengeance, her uses as a pawn to draw out her attended, Comte Beaulieu. When Prince Khalid's friend brings home the spitfire, Heather to him, there's more than vengerance transpiring. While, vengeance can be sweet, love, respect and HEA is sweeter. "Desert Eden", has pirates, revenge, passion, respect, romance and love which makes for an outstanding read. A romantic read that is fast paced, complex and compelling. I enjoyed this title and look forward to more reads from Patricia Grasso. A great read! Rating: 4 Heat rating: Steamy Reviewed by: AprilR
