This is a story about a woman who is accidently shot and goes into a coma. Upon awakening, she is without memory. Left with no past, present, or future anticipations our minds tend to create for ourselves, she moves forward in life following her heart and her senses. Few people can do such a thing and tend to find themselves following the path of tradition and expectation. "The Encounter" is a guided reflection on how our soul is drawn into the passions that fulfill our hearts in ways expectatio...more

I first heard about THE ENCOUNTER from MySpace comments Latin Temptress posted last summer. I was interested in learning more about the novel and the author. I heard her on the Latina Explosion episode of The Writer's Life Chat, hosted by author Kisha Green. When I finally met her at the Harlem Book Fair last July, I knew that her book was going to be something else. I don't know what it was but I could tell Latin Temptress was a quiet storm with a spitfire imagination. When Sexy suggested I rea...more
Latin Temptress poetically penned "The Encounter" into a work of art. Bella seems to have 9 live's that will collide in this ghostly written novel. This is a page turning mystery/supence noel that will end with a twist. You will not be disappointed in the debut novel by The Latin Temptress. Don't judge a book by it's cover because you will miss out on a really good read.

The encounter is an empowering, entertaining powerhouse of a novel about self-discovery, friendship and love. It's authentic, well written, a total page turner, you will not be able to put it down... A stunning debut! A writer to watch!

Recommends it for: anyone who wants a fast read!
Captivating, you won't put it down. You will laugh, cry and become intimately involved with the characters. Bella will inspire you! This book contains romance, drama, betrayal, murder and redemption with just the right amount of erotica to tie it all in.

A friend read it and gave me his signed copy for me to review. It starts out with a feeble attempt in holding your interest, but soon starts to feel like a predictable Harlequin Romance novel. It is a light read at best with a very elementary plot and has a dragging flow in its conveyances as it struggles on. The main character lacks confidence in her descriptive, yet moves in a manner that is found conflicting within her actions throughout the book. The lead character ends up being a contradict...more
