The "Only" Book Called LOVE - an Enticingly Delicious Literary Treat

Savoring Eroticism (or Life) with All of the Senses Is the Focus of LOVE, the New Erotic Novel by Leagan E. Kasper

​​​​​​​The beginning of a sensual and longstanding relationship is the premise of Leagan E. Kasper’s new novel, LOVE. The author eloquently shares the electrifying journey of Herzog and Em as they learn about one another by exploring their tastes in food, music, humor, and each other. Over the span of three months, the couple meets, dates, and marries. And while the two New Yorkers openly share experiences with each other, along the way they retain a great level of mystery that allows for a number of exciting discoveries during their honeymoon. LOVE is an adventure for all the senses and allows a peak into the growing relationship between two secure and curious individuals that is based on desire and not desperation.

In LOVE, a thirty-two-year marriage begins with a chance meeting on Fire Island. When Herzog notices Em, it is her well-groomed feet that he initially pays attention to, because to Herzog, feet reflect the cleanliness and character of the entire woman. Later, in the small hours of the night, Herzog and Em find themselves indulging in a late-night snack during which Herzog’s initial attraction expands to delight over Em’s appearance and actions, as well as the nonverbal communication they share with their eyes.

A week later, Herzog asks his best friend Manny about Em. Manny reminds Herzog that Em is his cousin, whom Herzog knew when she was a child. With this information in hand, Herzog visits Em at her apartment where his sense memory suddenly becomes alive, making the sharing of a savory meal a pleasure feast. Although there is a significant age difference between the two, Em is twenty-eight and Herzog forty-two, they are in synch emotionally and intellectually. They're not playing games. Em and Herzog are simply open to gradually getting to know each other while continuing to live the lives they built before they started dating. Lives they keep secret from one another until they are involuntarily revealed, causing unanticipated shock and delight.

Three months of dating leads to marriage and a surprise honeymoon in the Middle East. On their honeymoon, the sensuous nature of the couple’s relationship expands to the physical exploration of each other’s bodies using original imagination, wit, and eroticism that is sensual and enticingly poetic, passionate, and exciting. The experienced Herzog is anxious to coach his young wife in the ways of sensual pleasure, but at the same time he is reluctant to move too fast, increasing the magnetic attraction between them. A mutual seduction ensues, which allows Em and Herzog to open up and share even more, finally revealing truths to themselves of who they really are as individuals, much to Herzog’s surprise, who discovers the man inside him he never knew.

The author calls LOVE an “aesthetically erotic novel that journeys into the relationship of two who dare to suffer love using all of their senses.” The idea for the book came to Kasper during a walk in Central Park when she noticed a man sitting on a bench, reading a book. “I wondered what his life was about, how he met his wife—he wore a golden wedding band—and what kind of a man he was,” Kasper says.

“I went home, sat down, and began writing the life of Mr. Herzog, exactly as I described in the preface of the book. And then imagination took off, and, my, my, I was surprised myself where it led to.”

Kasper believes that LOVE illustrates how beautiful and fulfilling relationships can be when people allow themselves to use all of their senses. “It’s an erotic novel that lures the reader into a totally new world that’s foreign to them, a world that’s seductive, erotic, tempting, poetic, and humorous, yet there is no content of vulgarity, not even a four letter word.” In LOVE, Kasper offers readers a look into the intimate life and inner thoughts of a budding couple.
