Beyond Temptation...

Alexandra DeLisle might believe that Ryder Culhane is the very devil because of his uncanny sixth sense, but if he held the key to finding her abducted sister, she'd bargain with Lucifer himself. She'll do anything, from following Ryder halfway around the world to blackmail to posing as his concubine and submitting to his every intimate demand, and

Beyond Desire is the first book I have read by author Thea Devine. Let me start off by saying I am not a book reviewer or blogger so I will not pretend to be able to do something efficiently that I have no experience doing i.e. reviewing a book which is someone else's hard work and labour of love. My main intention for writing this review at all is to see if anyone else who may have read this book felt the way I did. I wanted to love it but I couldn't. For a description of what this book is abou ...more

Ok... so I will NOT be recommending this guys to.... anyone... I hate to give bad reviews on books, because there are things in every story that are appealing, but when the over all isn't that great I have to lay it out...

A few things about the writing itself (again I feel bad for critisizing, but really) first - who ever editted this book should be fired... I might just be overly anal-retentive, but when "she" says something and later it says he... drives me crazy. The language used was extrem

A love scene that lasts 100 pages. That's all I need to say.

This is the most sexy book I have ever read! Hot romance fans will absolutely adore this desert tale of sex and passion.

Prim Alexandra and rugged adventurer Ryder Culhane have every kind of sex you can possibly imagine. They are out to recover a pair of priceless bracelets that Alexandra's archaeologist father dug up long ago. Unfortunately, Alexandra's spoiled and sexy little sister Allegra has fallen completely under the spell of evil foreign collector Dzmura -- and it looks like he has the br

This book has been sitting on my shelf forever and I finally decided to pick it up and give it a try. I enjoyed the story and it kept my attention. I enjoyed the journey by Orient Express and eluding the followers and the search for clues about the bracelets. I think this book would have been much more enjoyable without the sex scenes. They were ridiculous, and overburdened with words like transmogrified, termagant, profligate. I also found that I occasionally had a hard time following whose tho ...more

I very much enjoy Thea Devine's books. Her writing expects the reader to think and observe. Intricate stories with surprising twists yet still romantic. In this book, the two daughters of a archeologist, Sir Peregrine, lose first their mother and a short time later, their father. There are mysteries here and Alexandra, the older, had his confidence but many questions were left unanswered at his death. Allegra, the younger sister, disappears in the company of a neighbor, Dzmura, who is involved w ...more

I'm not sure what I thought when I bought this, but the book wasn't it. It made little sense, and what did weren't very good.
