Publisher's Summary

After a chance meeting, two kindred souls are separated by an ocean.

A year of correspondence solidifies their bond, and their tender reunion ignites a burning passion.

They only have 36 hours to quench that thirst, but the more they explore it, the more they want.

Would forever even be enough?

La Promesse is an erotic short.

Nice and Easy

The story is incredibly short. Because of that, the characters were underdeveloped, which made the ending seem like a complete leap in logic or sanity. And while it's erotica, I felt it could have gone further (if the characters aren't going to stand out then at least the sex could). However, although there is a scene at a sex club nothing happens. Rather than be erotic, the scene falls flat and takes an unusual turn for a couple that would visit a sex club in the first place...

There was hardly any dialogue, but the narrator did a good job with the French accent when the hero did speak.

I have LOVED other books by this author (The Calum & her Falling Stars Series). So feel free to try those, or you may enjoy this one and disagree with my thoughts. Stranger things have happened.
