Oct 21, Saly rated it really liked it Shelves: And ex m Egyptian setting and archeology and wonderful heroine. I loved, loved, loved this book.
In his time the closest diagnosis they have is “word blindness” and carries with it the stigma of retardation. At the opening of this book, Dizzy has been kidnapped from a market outing on her own and is awaiting a unknown future- likely sold into slavery, possible worse.
Dios mio, que bueno que esta este libro!!!!! I love that Brockway did this, because it makes Harry an immediately sympathetic and approachable hero.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. My obsession with unrequited love trope began with this book.
Guest Review: As You Desire by Connie Brockway
Brockway colored conine personality as an outspoken fearless, highly sociable charming people person. Total number of sex scene pages: 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.
Brockway [is] among the finest writers of the genre”. Notify me of follow-up comments by email. This book really could have been better. Harry is brilliant, charming, loyal, dedicated, funny, and sad. He also holds closely a secret that has tortured him for most of his life. To me, it was too over the top, too farcical, too. As You Desire starts out a bit slow. I really do seemt o have a thing for guys named Connid.
Similarly, Ddesire felt the conflict between the hero and his cousin wasn’t convincing. It was more suitable reading for a private setting.

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. I did n This book really could have been better. Harry of course loves Dizzy but he is unwilling to allow her to give up her hrockway to make him happy so he pushes her away for her own good.
I definitely look forward to reading more from this author. Harry Braxton is swoon worthy to the nth degree! I enjoyed the last half of this book much more than the first half. The two main characters were full of life and entertaining.
Your flesh is like the desert sand, warmth and shifting strength beneath its golden color, If Qs had a drawback, I wish the ending could have been drawn out just a bit more.
Yet it was okay that he had lovers during that three years that he said he loved her.
Marianne Stillings Review Date: Both the hero and heroine are good characters, with flaws and the attraction between them is credible, also their secrets are actually pretty good, and, particularly the hero’s, would have been incredibly embarrassing during that era. Makin suka kalo harry cemburu,, seruuu n sensual sangat… Apalgi pas Harry dah ngeluarin jurus2 rake nya dia, aihhhh melting dah… Kutip kata2 harry ke Dizzy yg bikin adeg2an: I cannot tell you why I did not love it to pieces.
As You Desire (Braxton, book 1) by Connie Brockway
I couldn’t figure out why they stayed enemies, or why a reconciliation wasn’t forthcoming. Especially if Harry is involved. Such an original story and setting, excellent writing, great characters. More about Connie Brockway. An unforgettable romance which raised the bar on my historical romance reading.
As You Desire
There wasn’t any magic, a changeling, a vampire or werewolf in sight in the book. See how the long fluid line of your throat flows to your breasts? Buy As You Desire: The writing imagery was really beautiful and the poetry that Harry spoke to Dizzy had me fanning myself.
I’ll definitely read more by this author since I did like the way it was set-up, and it had some nice touches, and, well, I’ve read much worse than this. I liked the unusual setting, the adventure.
He is equally entranced by what he sees as an English rose in the middle of the desert. She knows this though she never voices it.
View all 8 comments. Have you watched and liked “The Mummy”? This is a five star hero and a three star book. He is a perfect blend of roguish charm and inner vulnerability. You must forgive him the hackneyed compliment. My hot, harrowing desert and my cool, verdant Nile, infinitely lovely and unfathomable and sustaining. Because I speak both languages Arabic and English it was so much fun reading this book, though some words are spelled wrong in Arabic, it was still such an amazing book, the story is amazing!
