Story Tagline

A scandalous tryst on a sultry afternoon leads to a surprising twist.

Story Blurb:

On a hot summer afternoon in antebellum Charleston, Martine de Gramont, a married woman with a zest for danger, meets with her lover, Henry Lawrence, challenging him to play out a sexual game she’s devised, meant to commemorate a formative sexual encounter from her past.

Henry isn’t sure he likes the rules of her game, although he is unable to resist the temptation Martine poses. But as the encounter intensifies, the lovers prove not to be quite as first presented—to themselves or to us—in a twist that reveals itself only as the encounter winds to a close.

About the Author:

Leslie Noyes is a designer and writer living in Southern Vermont. Before returning to her home state, she spent her college and early working years in New York City where she gained a life-long appreciation of the absurd—and falafel—among other delights. Back in Vermont, she acquired a husband and a house. She eventually shed both but kept the daughters and standard poodle. Her adventures (and misadventures) in dating and love inspire her writing. When she isn’t designing magazines, Leslie is texting with her daughters, sending overlong emails to friends, or plotting her next novel while also fighting a loosing battle against the clutter on her desk.

The First Line/Book Beginnings

Henry set aside his newspaper as Martine Valois de Gramont’s wide-hooped skirts preceded her into the room.

The Friday 56

With a roll of her eyes, she said, “You are reminding me how sad it is that all men have these moments of idiocy, even you.”

29th - October 5th - Never judge a book by its film adaptation. Do you concur? (submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

Yes. Do not even get me started on the amount of liquid murder that filled my soul when I saw the film adaption of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Utter waste of a decent cast. The film made puzzling and unforgivable changes to a wonderful story.


Lil DeVille will give away one copy of Hot and Sticky during this event.
