Decadence In the steamy Bliss River Valley of South Africa, a colony of aristocratic British citizens have given themsel. She's Thea Devine, and she's the author of eighteen steamy historical romances (all published by Zebra Books), four novellas, and featured in the bestselling erotic romance anthologies, Captivated, Fascinated, and All Through The Night. She also writes contemporary romance and is a long-time freelance manuscript reader.

While Habermas's philosophy of communicative action is well-known among philosophers and social scientists, his aesthetics - that is, his views on art, literature, and culture - has received little attention. In his study, Pieter Duvenage fills this gap and shows that Habermas's work on aesthetics, far from being marginal to his core concerns, is central to understanding and evaluating Habermas's entire theoretical enterprise.

Thea Devine, author of bestselling erotic romance. In the steamy Bliss River Valley of South Africa, a colony of aristocratic British citizens live a debauched lifestyle free of all constraints. Into this hotbed of instant gratification comes Charles Elliott, who walks a tightly controlled line between two worlds, and not even Georgiana, seductive daughter of the Valley, who is desperate to escape its libidinous allure, can quench his thirst for vengeance.

An electrifying hot book with the alpha male Nicholas fully in control

An electrifying hot book with the alpha male Nicholas fully in control. While I found Thea's characters a little more harsh and not so easy to get a handle on, I still found myself unable to put this book down. The mysterious plot and the way it was written made for a very intense and compelling story. The sexual tension between Nicholas and Elizabeth and the odd mixture of secondary characters just made this an interesting book throughout.

A sensually woven tapestry of passion, intrigue, and danger centers around a colony of aristocratic British citizens who succumb to a lifestyle of depravity and dissolution that effects the lives of Charles Elliot, a man who has been falsely accused of murder, and Georgiana Maitland, a woman determined to seduce and save him.

I love this book! I previously read this book in hardback from library, forgot the title, had to do a search and finally got it. I have been enthralled by their sexual relationship as it unfolds

Okay, I have read every single thing from this author I could get my hands on. She is fantastic and her books are super hot (sizzling). This was not one of my favorites (Try Sinful Delights) but if you like this author you should not miss it.

In 1898 Bliss River Valley, South Africa, while visitor Charles Elliot teaches polo, the leader Moreton Estabrook assigns Georgiana Maitland, daughter of his lover Olivia, to have sex with the guest. Georgiana sees this as an opportunity to escape the promiscuous valley that she hates and join her father in England even if she has not seen or heard from him in almost two decades. However, though she is quite good at sex, Charles rejects Georgiana's advances.

Olivia receives a letter from her husband telling her he filed for divorce after an almost two decade separation. Moreton decides to steal the man's estate to establish a brothel there. However, Moreton's wife Lydia recognizes Charles as her son who was supposed to have died when Moreton led a deadly raid that freed her from her first husband. Lydia informs Moreton that Charles is her son. Moreton and Olivia kill Lydia and blame Charles.

Georgiana knows that her mother and Moreton killed Lydia. She asks Charles to take her to her father in England if she helps free him, but insists on traveling sex rules. They escape the compound while Moreton follows.

BLISS RIVER has an engaging concept of a remote African town settled by promiscuous English expatriates in which the pleasures of the flesh rule. However that community was never explored below the epidermis. Instead a lot of unnecessary profanity and sex seemingly for shock value abounds even when the lead characters flee across the desert with Moreton in pursuit. The African geography also feels inaccurate. Simply Thea Devine's book is erotic romance aimed for the hard core fan.

Meet the in-laws: Mom was a doormat, Auntie is a psycho, and Stepfather is...Or is he her uncle? Nevermind. You'd need a flow chart to track the family relationships in meandering Bliss River, and at any rate they exist mainly to provide our Tormented Hero with a motive for his intense - and intensely childish - dislike of his new girlfriend. Don't get me wrong - Thea Devine's sex scenes are always entertaining, and Bliss River is a pleasant romp. But something's missing. In my favorite Devine book, "Secret Pleasures," there are some plot similarities (bad parenting, murder, revenge) but I actually LIKED that couple and felt anxious about the outcome of their relationship. In Bliss River, I couldn't help thinking that they should consider dating other people. This novel falls into the increasingly familiar rut of "Boy Meets Girl; Boy Hates Girl But Agrees To Have Sex With Her Anyway; Boy Is Faced With Evidence That He Was Wrong About Girl, But Boy Is Too One-Dimensional To Admit It..." It gets old. As I said, enjoy the sex scenes. And hope for well-drawn, believable characters next time.

I must admit to the fact that I did not care for either main character so I had a hard time in liking the story or the idea benind it. I must admit to not having read any other stories by this author so I have not much to judge on what is considered good or bad and her work.
The story is set in Africa in a colony that is set up for the explicit joy and need for sex. With murder, a flight across the desert with the bad guy close behind, Charles and Georgie indulge themselves with each other. I feel that the main storyline suffers and as a result it is hard to understand where the storyline is going and where the sex is important to the story. I realize that this is an erotic story but I have read other stories of this nature by other authors and the storylines have not suffered. Sex for the sake of sex is not a story.

I agree with the reviewer who said this is another in the trend of Man who Hates Woman but Has Sex with her Anyway. These two had nothing in common, indeed, rather hated each other, and I hated both of them. There was nothing that would categorize this as a "historical" romance--the few details of setting she gave us might as well have indicated the year 2004, though she mentioned a lorry which is a word not coined till 1900. Oh, and I also don't categorize these types of books as "romances" when the H&H can barely abide each other. I like there to be affection and, god forbid, LOVE!
I also didn't know there were Bedouins in South Africa. And...Aren't Charles and Georgiana COUSINS?? This book just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
