“When he said he wasn’t like other men, I should have believed him…”

It’s Sophie Quinn’s chance to make a name for herself. Her assignment: interview investor Marc Brayden, descendant of the most notorious sadist in history, the Marquis de Sade. Her mistake: falling hopelessly, obsessively in love.

Marc is mind-blowingly sexy, but determined to stay away from Sophie. She brings out powerful dominant urges that are dangerous to them both. But when he loses control, the pleasure is more than either of them can resist.

Sophie shut down her heart after too much betrayal and loss. Now she’s thousands of miles from home and under Marc’s spell. What is he hiding? Why do his desires torment him? Torn between love and the truth, she resolves to learn everything she can about Marc’s cryptic past, even if she risks losing him forever.

I received an ARC of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I normally stay away from serials because I don’t like having to wait so long for the ending. However, I do make exceptions sometimes. And this story deserved an exception. The blurb got me really interested because the characters seemed very intriguing. The hero was a descendant of a very popular character that we all know. The heroine is an ambitious woman who knows how to work hard.

This book was sexy, exciting, and thrilling at the same time. I love steamy books, and this book really belongs in that group. I also like the way each main character had a good back story. While there has been so many books with this theme before, Descended still has enough aspects on it that make it different from its contemporaries. I cannot wait to see how the story progresses from this book. I hope to read more from this series.

Rose Devereux writes shamelessly erotic romance, some of it light, some of it dark, all of it sexy. In her other life, she is a traditionally published author whose books have been translated into five languages. Reviews of her novels have appeared in Cosmopolitan, The Boston Globe, New York Magazine, and the Associated Press.

She loves animals, sleeping late, champagne, and alpha males.
She lives in sin with her boyfriend and two cats in Boston and New Hampshire.
