First off let me start out by saying that this is not my normal type of read. If you follow the podcast or our blog in general, you’ll know that this is more of a Mellissa book. I’m not sure why we switched up, but it has been a long time since I read any BDSM (probably 2006 or 2007). I’ve also never been a huge fan of military romance, just not what appeals to me from the cover or blurb. All that notwithstanding, I really enjoyed this book. I loved that there was a lot of story and relationship development. I appreciated the time given for Grace to grieve Kurt and grow to know Alexander. I think Sherri Hayes does a fantastic job of coloring this story with the reality of grief and survivor’s guilt without making the story too dark or depressing. Also, the sexy times were hot. All and all this was a nice change of pace for me, an appealing step outside of what has become my norm.
Title: Longing For His Kiss
Author: Sherri Hayes
Series: The Serpent’s Kiss
Genre: Military Romance/BDSM
Eight months ago, two uniformed men showed up at Grace Martin’s door and told her that her husband wasn’t coming home. She’s tried to move on, but nothing will make that ache in her chest go away. Kurt wasn’t only her husband. He was also her Master. With him gone a part of her is missing and she has no idea how, or even if, she can repair the hole that has been left.
A lot has changed in the last eight months for Alexander Greco. He was injured, spent six months in a VA hospital recovering, was discharged from the Army after ten years of service, and then moved himself halfway across the country to find his friend’s widow. He has a letter to deliver to Grace—her husband’s final goodbye.
Little does either of them know the letter contains something that will change both their lives.

Sherri spent most of her childhood
detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she
never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn’t good at spelling, or
following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason,
Sherri never imagined becoming an author.
At the age of thirty, all of that changed.
After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of
its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending,
and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story
finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers
were encouraging her to write more.
Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to
explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters
through all the twists and turns she can create.
