Reading Pinnacle Lust was a pleasant surprise. It followed a theme I was familiar with (medicine and romance) while introducing me to a country I’ve always wondered about, but never traveled.

Michelle does a wonderful job sharing the beauty of her homeland, while sharing Sharon and Dr. Sloan’s torrid love story. The author brilliantly portrays the highs and lows of falling in love with a married man; the lust, the lies, the betrayal – the heat. The complications that can make or destroy your life. This steamy love story will keep you breathless and begging for more.

I have to admit that I especially enjoyed the cultural undertones within the story. It’s not often that we have access to a such a sultry story that also provides the reader with the opportunity to embrace the differences of romance and relationships in different cultures.

I give this book  5 stars!

                                                        About the Author:

Michelle-Dim-St-Pierre-AuthorMichelle Dim-St. Pierre was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, where she spent more than half of her life before relocating to the United States.

She lived through four wars and served in the Israel Defense Forces for two years. Unlike her first year of service in an armored division in the Golan Heights, she spent her second year serving in the medical corps where she interacted directly with the injured soldiers of the Peace of Galilee war and their families. This interaction, along with the exposure to the hospital atmosphere, fascinated Michelle and further touched her heart.

After graduating from nursing school with a BS in Nursing in Tel-Aviv, she practiced internationally for 32 years in various positions in the surgical field and quickly advanced into health care administration. During her career she worked in the Operating Room, Recovery Room, and CCU–along with many other duties.

Writing was Michelle’s outlet at first, but it soon became her passion. Recently she left nursing and became a full-time writer. Her international background, along with her military and nursing experience, is always at the tip of her pen. Her first novel, Pinnacle Lust, starts the Pinnacle trilogy. She is also currently creating a cookbook inspired by the Pinnacle trilogy featuring dishes mentioned in the books.

Michelle is a world traveler who enjoys cooking epicurean food and creating original recipes.
