Words of Lust
Words of Lust

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Hot Hot ... with lots of warmth, October 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Words of Lust (Kindle Edition)
Lise Horton's erotic romance, Words of Lust, a must-read for fans of steamy romance, will appeal to readers seeking an intelligent, witty, and engaging story. The plot involves multi-dimensional characters, their inward struggles and external conflicts, who ultimately reach a deeper level of self-awareness, and sexual and romantic fulfillment. College professor Serafina Luca must let go of her insecurities and accept that she deserves to be loved and cared for. Hunky construction foreman Nick Stellato is there to guide her on that journey and learn a few things about himself along the way. Nick's relationship with his quirky but affectionate family adds an endearing and humanizing layer to a well-written, intriguing story. A suspenseful sub-plot (don't worry -- I won't give away any spoilers) completes a compelling, satisfying read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complex and well-written romance novel, February 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Enemy of the King (Paperback)
ENEMY OF THE KING is an excellent and intriguing read. All of the characters are depicted as multi-dimensional and complex, with a mix of positive and negative traits. I don't want to give away the plot, but will just say there are surprising twists, and the author deftly combines both joy and tragedy in this romance novel about the American Revolution. I appreciate that members of each side of the war (both Loyalists and Patriots) are shown in a range from "good" to "evil," unlike many romances in which characters or groups of characters are depicted as only "black or white".
Great work, Ms. Trissel!

Ms. Pastolove's poetry collection is both evocative and accessible. Her poems touch upon the many moods and experiences of life -- sweet and sultry; poignant and potent. A wonderful and varied body of work, which resonates within the heart and mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, wonderful, heartrending, July 28, 2005
This review is from: The Forgotten Soldier (Paperback)
Reading this book was a tremendously powerful, emotionally moving experience. The writing is excellent - nearly poetic but straightforward and honest. It was painful yet easy to read and I truly cared about Sajer and his comrades. I couldn't put it down. The author came close to death so many times that I had to remind myself that he actually survived to write about it! I felt so swept up in Sajer's devastating experiences that I wished I could take him in my arms to comfort him! I can't say enough about this amazing book - you simply have to read it.
I do have one small criticism though. Sajer never explains how he came to be in the German Army since he is presumably a French citizen. Lacking that explanation, I wonder if he might have been sympathetic to the Nazi cause. He also doesn't mention how he feels about the German atrocities he must have become aware of after the war (though he certainly describes the Russian ones). Perhaps it's just as well he doesn't get into all of that because it's really not what the book is about but it did make me wonder. Nor does this omission take anything away from how much I loved this book.
I wish he had written a sequel - the story of how he adjusts to the rest of his life (does he marry or find any happiness?) and especially whether or not he is ever accepted by his fellow Frenchmen. And I can't help wondering if he tries to find his comrade Hals, whose friendship is a constant theme throughout the book.
This book goes beyond the realm of war memoir and speaks to the human condition. A wonderful, wonderful book!
