Blog Tour/Review ♥ Descended by Rose Devereux ♥

Descended by Rose Devereux 
(The Red Blindfold Series, #1) 
Publication date: February 1st 2016
Genres: Erotica, Romance


“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 instantly found myself connecting with Sophia and Marc. The author did a great job at developing these two and giving us a great story full of love, trust and angst.

This is definitely a book that I stayed up late finding myself captivated by the story.

Now, I'm not a big fan of erotica but my reviewer on my blog had an emergency and asked that I read and review this for her. Well, let me tell you that I am so happy that I agreed!!


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.
