I can't believe I just wrote a review for "Kindom Keepers" and know I'm writing one for Tryst. Talk about whiplash. :o)

Okay, I picked this up because I loved Steele's Scandalous. That was an awesome romance that dipped its toes into some really erotic writing. And if that's what you expect to find here, you may want to keep going... While the novel (and I understand her next novel too) is romance with a smattering of erotica, this (and it looks like her forthcoming short as well) is almost pure

To say that H.M. Ward has done it again would be a complete understatement.

If you don't know what Tryst means I'll clue you in. Tryst according to the many online and Webster dictionary means: A private, romantic rendezvous between lovers: "a moonlight tryst"

I have to say this novel completely emphasizes on the erotic!!! There's nipple piercings and piercings on other extremities...I'll let you ponder over that one. (smiles evilly)

The two characters: Micheal and Ashley are completely drawn to

Ummmm....yeah. Totally speechless after this one. This was a very short, uber smexy read. Just to warn you, eighty five percent was flat out sex and the rest was a brief story on the couple's background....and there was nothing wrong about that ;) Plus, I just found out today, that there's two more after this, so I'm off to read those =)

08.12.12 - All THREE of these short stories are FREE on Amazon...Excellent!! =)

Their both musicians, to me, an odd occupation for BDSM. It was over before I really felt it had a chance to begin. I didn't feel the connection between the characters at all. I guess they had been together before, but she couldn't do the things he wanted. Now, She was willing to do whatever it took to make him want her. The bondage, spanking and hot sex didn't seem to fit with a person that plays classical string instruments.

One review suggests that I need to read all three in the series, whic

A short quick erotic read, BDSM, nipple piercings and a little rough sex and hot tryst.

I didnt enjoy the charcaters what so ever or the storyline, but Ella certainly has a way with words.

If you after something erotic and hot, with a short storyline than this may appeal to you.

However, I found this an ok read just couldnt enjoy the characters put forth.

I realize this is a short story, but this was ridiculous. This was nowhere near BDSM.

I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this short story but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. It reminded me of Fifty Shades of Grey in some ways but it definitely has its own flavor.

Ella doesn't give much of a background of what happened between Ashley and Michael but from what I gathered Ashley felt that she couldn't be the woman that she thought that Michael wanted which was someone who didn't want just vanilla sex. I loved how Ella made Ashley a vixen and when given

Quick, steamy little ebook about a violinist and a cellist that were together 3 years before, have broken up, and now presented with an opportunity to get back togehter for a hot, well, tryst. Nice writing in the first persson of Ashley, the cellist.

Very light BDSM kink - tying up, spanking, nipple/clit piercings. It's a book concentrated on sex, not a HEA or HFN, which leads into the next one along in this series-style writing. Nicely written, very descriptive.

Nice, hot read for someone lookin

Michael had left her years ago but she never let go of the hope she would see him again in Tryst # 1. They both played string instruments, so when he was at a performance her hopes rose when she saw him at preformances. She leaves without seeing him but her finds her on the way home and when he goes home with her he finds a way to play her like his violin and give her what she needs. He leaves telling her to be ready for the next night after the performance and she will have to do everything he ...more

En esas historias BDSM no hay conexión entre los personajes, no le vi pies ni cabeza y sufriría leyendo el resto de la saga :(

It was good, but even for a short story... It was too short. I know there are more and I'm sure I will read them, but still.
