Within five minutes the Arabs had connnie, leaving her alone with her veiled captors. I often found myself tempted to skim and I can’t even say what it was about it that just kept me from being invested in it.
Much of her childhood was spent in libraries and on stages where her parents lectured and displayed her talent to the world. She loves Harry but uou never allow him to hurt her again. I kind of enjoyed this one. When we first meet Desdemona Carlisle she’s bored, bound, a bit tipsy on fermented milk and awaiting the auctioning block.
Guest Review: As You Desire by Connie Brockway
Still, a rescue is a rescue and with little ado, she follows him out. People that love HR with a more exotic flavour. Dell- Fiction – pages.
Someone said something that sounded suspiciously like the Arabic equivalent of “Uh-oh. At the center of this story cconnie is Harry and Dizzy. What a charming, refreshing book. She stuck a finger under the wretched chadar, the face veil her captors insisted she wear at all times, and scratched.
I’ve enjoyed other books by Connie Brockway, but this one just didn’t work for me.
And let me tell you, I loved these brockwy characters, especially together. Running from a painful past, and rumored to be involved in nefarious endeavors, Harry will never be a proper match for Desdemona.
As You Desire (Braxton, book 1) by Connie Brockway
Desdemona was a child prodigy, brilliant, reading twelve languages, and a fabricator of romantic illusions. I suppose you could do better? He is hiding a painful secret that makes him feel inadequate and he will not return to England after his dreadful childhood. Oct 03, Edna rated it it was amazing Shelves: Includes a special message from the editor, as brockawy as excerpts from other Loveswept titles.
She heard the intake of his breath. Makin suka kalo harry cemburu,, seruuu n sensual sangat… Apalgi pas Harry dah ngeluarin jurus2 rake nya dia, aihhhh connid dah… Kutip kata2 harry ke Dizzy yg bikin adeg2an: He cocked his head, his eyes traveling lingeringly over her body, and she recognized the potent attraction other women must feel when Harry looked at them this way.
Some of the secondary characters I also liked, particularly the heroine’s grandfather and her housekeeper, but, I’ll be honest, there were too many of them, introduced too quickly, and with not enough detail. It wasn’t a struggle to finish it, and there was nothing really irritating about it, and I btockway enjoy the Egyptian setting, but it didn’t really engage me particularly. Harry “you are my country” Braxton was a gorgeous and delicious hero. It was a decent read with a fluffy HEA and I am impoverished without you.
But when she catches the eye of his cousin, the irritatingly honorable Lord Blake Ravenscroft, Harry vows to claim his one true desire, once and for all. He has the facade of a man that doesn’t care about anything except making money on Egyptian treasures.
Oh Harry Braxton, could you come over to my house and I’ll read you any piece of paper, book, comic strip you want as long as you whisper things like you told Desdemona into my ear. In darkness I have lain awake filling the hours with the sound of your voice, the image of your body, until desire lives within me.
As You Desire
When first snatched from the Cairo market four days before, fear had paralyzed her usually agile intelligence, terror had crippled her spirit with the certainty that soon she would become the plaything of some cruel desert sheik. Growing up, her academically inclined parents dragged her around to different conferences.
Harry is so charming and Dizzy is a sweet heroine.
Dios mio, que bueno que esta este libro!!!!! View all 10 comments. She knows this though she never voices it. Cheeky and not average in anyway, she does as she pleases though professing to long for a life as an average English Lady.
He features in a very funny scene of wooing and broken pottery. Blackjack November 10, at 7: A quirky historical romance in many ways, I really enjoyed As You Desire. Squatting sullenly at the brockwah of a sand dune, the slave traders” encampment was peopled by such fugitives.

Des provides translation services to help with household expenses. Desdemona is an expert on ancient spoken languages.
Heroes who love heroines don’t sleep with other women. You must forgive him the hackneyed compliment. Recommended to Brockwayy by: After they get together, Des starts a fight and leaves him.
I’ve read only one other book during but it was in America with some of the similar social rules.
