Breathtakingly beautiful, the City of Light seduces the senses, its cobbled streets thrumming with possibility. For American Cade Corey, it's a dream come true, if only she can get one infuriating French chocolatier to sign on the dotted line. . .
Melting, yielding yet firm, exotic, its secrets are intimately known to Sylvain Marquis. But turn them over to a brash American waving a fistful of dollars? Jamais. Not unless there's something much more delectable on the table. . .
Whether confections taken from a locked shop or kisses in the dark, is there anything sweeter?
Praise for Laura Florand and her novels
"Charming and laugh-out-loud funny."--New York Times bestselling author Deborah Smith
"Readers will be happy to live vicariously in Laura's French fairytale."–Booklist
"Frothy, French confection of a novel."--Publishers Weekly
"Both sensual and sweet. . .a story that melts in your mouth!" –USA Today bestselling author Christie Ridgway
In this comfortable beach read from Florand (Blame It on Paris), Sylvain Marquis knows chocolate is the what every woman desires; as Paris's best chocolatier, Sylvain has the prefect tool of seduction. American chocolate heiress, Cade Corey aware of Sylvain's reputation as an artisanal chocolatier, is not prepared for his rejection of her proposal that he design a high-end line of chocolates for her global chocolate empire. But Cade is not about to give up and after luck hands her the key to his shop, Cade takes matters into her own hands and breaks in. The book is a good, fun read, but Florand's descriptions of the pleasures of chocolate evoke more sensuousness (however clich d) than her sex scenes, and the attraction between Cade and Sylvain feels forced ("That resilient determination of her was erotic ."). By the book's end, readers will feel that one of them has made a deep compromise to make that relationship fit.
