As You Desire by Connie Brockway

We're traveling to Egypt for our historicals this month (it's not India, but I'm working my way East from England).

In Connie Brockway's As You Desire Desdemona Carlisle has always been just a friend to Harry Braxton--until Desdemona is kidnapped by a desert gang. According to the back cover copy, "But an unlikelier hero was hard to find.   Harry Braxton was a rogue, a scoundrel, and a born opportunist who had already broken her heart once.   How could she ever trust a notorious rake who came with a warning:  lover, beware..." Judging by reviews, no one will be ambivilent about this book. We'll either love it or hate it.

As You Desire is the first book in the Braxton series.

 

The second book for August is Loretta Chase's Mr. Impossible. Rupert Carsington is not you average hero. Sure, he's the fourth son of an earl, but he's always getting into one scrape or another because he just doesn't use his wits--relying on brawn instead. Our heroine,
scholar Daphne Pembroke, finds him in an Egyptian prison and she needs help rescuing her brother.

Mr. Impossible is the second in the Carsington series. You don't have to read them in order.

    Hey all, I was really looking forward to seeing everyone, but have had a sick child all week and it feels like I've finally picked up what she has. Take care everyone.

    I had an out of town emergency. Will this book be discussed at any other time? When is the next meeting and book?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
