all thea devine books are soooo good! historical romance(erotic)
Antebellum romance - Cade Rensell returns to the Georgia plantation for revenge & romances the daughter of the man who ruined his father.
From the description, I thought this might be a good "revenge turns into love" romance. And Thea Devine's books are usually at least 3-star/pretty good. Instead it gave off a creepy vibe. The hero falls in love with the heroine because she looks like her mother (his first love). The story was draggy, there was too much past history; too much detail about clothing and physical appearances. I didn't believe the (eventual, it takes the whole book for it) 'love' between the hero & heroine. Just didn't enjoy this, sorry I wasted a credit.
Cade Rensell was full of fury and ruthless plans of vengeances until he met Sarianna Broydon. When he comes back to Georgia wealthy after being run out. She has no illusion for she is like the woman he lost.
SHE KNEW THE TRUTH
Sarianna Broydon had no illusions about why Cade Rensell wanted her. She knew she was the very image of the woman he'd once loved and lost...and that his desire to possess her sprang from a hunger for vengeance rather than a thirst for passion. Long ago, her father had driven him to ruin. And Cade, now wealthy and powerful, had come home to Georgia to take what he saw as his due. What Sarianna couldn't understand was why she didn't care that the gleam in his hazel eyes spoke of lust, not love...and why a few heated moments in his demanding embrace made her yearn to surrender all she had for one more fiery kiss.
HE TOLD NO LIES
Cade Rensell was full of cold fury and ruthless plans until he met Sarianna. Suddenly he no longer sought to relive and avenge the past in her arms. He only wanted his Sarianna, his fragile, tempestuous Sarianna. And when he saw her golden curls spread across his pillow, felt her slender softness beneath his questing caress, he swore he would love her more than life itself for an eternity
