DECEMBER, 2017 CITADEL OF WOMEN By: Lisabet Sarai The Plot: When her lover severs their relationship just before a long- planned trip to Angkor Wat, Doa stubbornly decides to travel alone. The marvelous sights of the an- cient Khmer empire do little to heal the rift in her heart. Che, the mercurial young tour guide, senses her loneliness and offers her comfort and passion. Their connection is far more than physi- cal—but how can two people from such different worlds share a future? ***** Goodreads Review by Jim Horn: “Real people in a surreal setting. Brilliant imagery. . . . This book plays to your loins, yet also your heart.” Available in Print and E-Book At: Smashwords Amazon BN An Excerpt: We drank for a while in silence.

Somehow, though, it was a relief to admit it to someone, even to him. “Yes. Yes, I do.” “Was she your lover?” I‟d read Cambodia was a conservative country, but Che didn‟t seem shocked by the idea at all. “Yes. She broke it off just before we were supposed to leave on this trip.” “Why?” The question was completely inappropriate, but I could see he wanted to know. I buried my face in my hands. What could I say? How could he ever understand? I heard the scrape of his chair as he rose. His hand rested briefly on my bare shoulder. “Whatever the reason,” he mur- mured, “I think she was crazy.” Author Contact Info: Price: $1.99 Length: 33 Pages Heat Level: R+ Website Blog Twitter Amazon Author Page Biography: Lisabet Sarai has been addicted to words all her life.
