Today is the official release day for my fifth novel with Montlake Romance, Honeymoon in Paris! You can find the novel on Amazon.
Honeymoon in Paris is the sequel to my very first novel, Sleeping with Paris. I am so thrilled to share Charlotte's next adventures in the City of Love with all of you. If you enjoyed her dating debacles in the first book, I'd love to hear what you think of the continuation as Charlotte gets married...and gets herself into a whole lot of trouble!
About the book:
The sassy heroine of Sleeping with Paris is back! And this time, chocolate-covered French wedding bells are in the air...
It's only been a month since Charlotte Summers reunited with her sexy French boyfriend Luc Olivier, and he has already made her the proposal of a lifetime: a mad dash to the altar in the fairytale town of Annecy. Without hesitation, Charlotte says au revoir to single life and oui to a lifetime of chocolate in bed with Luc. She's madly in love, and Luc is clearly the one, so what could possibly go wrong?
As it turns out, quite a lot...
On the heels of their drama-filled nuptials in the French Alps, Luc whisks Charlotte away to Paris for a luxurious honeymoon. But just as they are settling into a sheet-ripping, chocolate-induced haze, a surprise appearance by Luc's drop-dead gorgeous ex-wife brings the festivities to a dead halt. Luc never told Charlotte that his ex was a famous French actress, or that she was still in love with him. Add to that Charlotte's new role as step-mom to Luc's tantrum-throwing daughter, a humiliating debacle in the French tabloids, and the threat of losing her coveted position at the language school--and Charlotte fears she may have tied the French knot a little too quickly.
Determined to keep her independence and her sanity, Charlotte seeks out a position at Bella Magazine's new France office while working on a sassy guidebook to French marriage. But when Luc's secret past threatens Charlotte's career and their future together, Charlotte must take matters into her own hands. Armed with chocolate, French wine, and a few fabulous girlfriends by her side, Charlotte navigates the tricky waters of marriage, secrets, ex-wives, and a demanding career all in a foreign country where she quickly realizes she never truly learned the rules.

If you already have a copy of Honeymoon in Paris, feel free to enter the giveaway, and if you win, you'll have your pick of one of my other (or future!) Paris books.
I'd like to send a huge merci to all of my loyal readers who continue to support and encourage me throughout my writing journey. I write these stories for you (well, okay, I don't mind the France research trips either...), and I sincerely hope you love reading about Charlotte's adventures as much as I enjoyed writing them!
Speaking of research trips to France, when you read Honeymoon in Paris, you'll find that Charlotte has a new favorite chocolate dessert: le fondant au chocolat. To give you an idea of the magnificence of this French delight, here are some pictures from my last strenuous research trip to France, enjoying le fondant au chocolat at Le Nord in Lyon, the same restaurant where Charlotte devours this tasty treat for the first time.
|Outrageously excited to eat le fondant au chocolat with my close friend and travel buddy, Katie.|
|Oui, oui, and oui! (The third oui is to those little chocolate balls on top of the ice cream! So delicious!)|
|Okay, I can hardly post this photo without hopping on a flight back to France just to eat this again!|
If you are lucky enough to travel to France, please do me a favor and find a restaurant with a spectacular fondant au chocolat dessert (I highly recommend Le Nord in Lyon), then report back. I promise your life will never be the same. Charlotte's certainly wasn't.
