Review: Decadent Deceptions by Keta Diablo

Decadent Deceptions by Keta Diablo

Publisher: Noble Romance Publishing
Genre: Historical Romance

Heat Rating: 3



Daring and desperate to win Morgan’s love, Olivia Breedlove embarks on a reckless folly. But everything backfires when Morgan remains one step ahead of her and the game ventures down a path of duplicity and murder.

A decade ago, Morgan was a heartbeat away from taking Olivia’s virginity. Her father, Thaddeus, intervened and threatened to meet him over pistols if he so much as looked at his daughter again. But now, Thaddeus is dead and Morgan has no intention of ignoring the ravenous hunger he’s harbored for the blasted woman for ten years.
One way or the other, he will quench this burning desire and make her his forever.

LynnMarie’s Review

Loved, loved, loved this book! Did I say I loved this book? 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 backstory. 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.

Olivia has loved Morgan as long as she can remember, but refuses to admit it. She’s hot headed and stubborn…and a character I adored. In fact, I fell in love with the entire cast of characters, that became so real as I read. From Olivia’s brother, and sister-in-law, to the irresistible Morgan, each character brought a unique spice to the story.

Morgan, the brooding, distant love interest was more than delectable! He was a mixture of raw sensuality, and erotic domination. You can’t help but fall in love with him. The sexual tension, and sex itself was hot! We get a full sampling in this tasteful erotic tale.

Decadent Deceptions is a historical romance that follows Olivia’s journey to capture the attention of Morgan. Her path leads her into a brothel in attempts to arouse jealousy, and eventually into the sights of a psychopath killer.

By the end of this book, I was teary eyed from the romance that grew and blossomed throughout the book. The mystery woven within the pages adds the perfect amount of tension.

If you love historical romance, or wanted to start with a great one…run and buy Keta Diablo’s Decadent Deceptions. You won’t be disappointed. I will be thinking about this book for a long time to come, and look forward to more work by this exceptional author.

I feel the same way about this book and so many others by Keta Diablo. As a writer of historical fiction, I am in awe of Keta grasp of the period about which she writes. As a reader, I am clamoring for the the next book from her. Did I mention I LOVED this book??

OK - I can really write. It should be Keta's grasp and sans one of the THE's in the next sentence. Sorry about that!!
