Well as you know Keta Diablo contacted me about reading one of her three erotic eBooks (Land of the Falling Stars, Dust Moonlight and Decadent Deceptions) so she could get the word out to readers about her lovely erotic historical and paranormal eBooks. I had the hard job of choosing only one of those 3 wonderful books that I really wanted to read. But in the end I chose Land of Falling Stars because it was a erotic historical during the Civil War time period. I love historical romances and I’ve never read a historical erotic romance before especially during the Civil War so I was really glad to get to read and review this eBook. The heroine Sophia Whitfield is a southern belle but it’s almost the end of the Civil War and she’s penniless with her parents and brother all dead in slave uprising that killed them in a fire. Her home is the only thing she has besides her two beloved slaves and she loathes all Yankees for what they took from her lands. So it isn’t much of a shock that she would shot the first Yankee she sees walking towards her beloved home because she is not going to put up with any Yankee wanting to take all that she has left.
What she doesn’t know is that the bluecoat Yankee who was staggering down the hill towards her home wasn’t there to steal anything from her, yet. The hero, Gavin Langdale, the dark knight of Sophia’s youth is the Yankee she shot but she didn’t know that until she ran to him and saw his face. Gavin has been carrying secrets too horrific to imagine from the war that he needs to tell Sophia about but his passionate desire for her pushes them back. As Sophia gradually learns Gavin’s secrets—and enjoys his talents in the bedroom—she discovers how to finally know her own heart. This is one steamy hot erotic historical eBook that I devoured as soon as I got a couple of pages in. Even though at first it took me a while to really get into it because I was having a bit of trouble staring at my computer for long periods of time. I enjoyed the chemistry between Sophia and Gavin because they have a totally different outlook on life but they have a connection that they can’t really describe.
I think they are both very stubborn with a lot of pride and that is what really keeps them apart from one another. It was really exciting reading this novel and I wish I had a portable eReader to read it from so I didn’t have to stop reading it when I wasn’t on the computer. Now when I finally finished it I really wanted more Sophia and Gavin because I felt that they should have at least an Epilogue showing me if they got married and had children. But I’m good with the way things ended for Sophia and Gavin and I recommend all you erotic romance readers to go out and buy this eBook because it is a keeper. Now I have to go convince Keta to let me read and review her other two eBooks that I really thought would be keepers too. Here is the description of the book from Ravenous Romance and picture:
LAND OF FALLING STARS $ 4.99 (213 Pages)

How was she to know it was Gavin, the dark knight of her youth, carrying secrets too horrific to imagine and a passion that ignites her deepest desires?
As Sophia gradually learns Gavin’s secrets—and enjoys his talents in the bedroom—she discovers how to finally know her own heart. Can she survive in the Land of Falling Stars, or will she lose it all to the horrors of the War and Reconstruction? And will the Southern lady and the Yankee soldier be able to recapture the bliss of their youth—this time in each other’s arms?
