From Paris to Provence...

I love traveling through the pages of a book, and that's exactly why I choose a setting carefully, giving it almost the role of a character in each of my novels. The setting is like your plane ticket when you're ready to get started on a new book.

So if you choose France as your next reading destination, check out my From Paris to Provence series. Each novel brings to life its own unique characters and can be read as a standalone, but all books share the vibrant and captivating setting of France.

How important is setting to you when you choose a book? What is your favorite setting for a novel?

Happy reading!

CLOSE TO DESTINY is Free on Amazon: Limited Time!

For the first time ever, I'm offering one of my full-length novels for free on Amazon! 

Close to Destiny is free through February 9th. With Valentine's Day right around the corner, it's the perfect time to read this magical romance set in two of my favorite cities, London and New York.

I was inspired to write the novel after staying in a London hotel that seemed so mysterious to me. Hushed, dark and elegant. The perfect setting for something magical to unfold. So I started scribbling on hotel stationery... then I took the modern route, transferring all I had written onto my computer. 

Now I hope you'll curl up in a comfortable spot and enjoy this story of love, friendship and hope.

So there you have it: Paris, Rue des Martyrs, set in the beautiful and diverse Montmartre, one of my favorite parts of the City of Light.

A Perfumer's Secret is on Sale for $0.99!

Just when you thought the Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals were over, I've got another great bargain for you. My novel A Perfumer's Secret is on sale today through Dec. 1 for only $0.99. That's cheaper than the cup of coffee we need to warm us up on these cool fall days. 

The novel is set in the summer in the South of France, a wonderful place to visit through the pages of a book at this time of year. The advantage of a book is you don't have to deal with packing or jet lag...

And if you prefer audiobooks, check out the audio version

Perfumer Zoe Flore travels to Grasse, perfume capital of the world, to collect a formula: her inheritance from the family she never knew existed. The scent matches the one worn by her mother, who passed away when Zoe was a teenager. Zoe, competing to create a new fragrance for prestigious designer Cherone, believes this scent could win the contract—and lead her to the reason her mother fled Grasse for New York City. Before Zoe can discover the truth, the formula is stolen. Philippe Chevrefeuille, the enigmatic competitor who makes her heart race, is the only one who can help her find it. But Zoe is in no mood for romance, or at least that's what she tries telling herself.

Philippe knows that winning the Cherone fragrance contract is the way out of his mid-level perfumery job. And he has the ambition and ego to make it happen. Until Zoe enters the picture. In an instant, he's under her spell and losing his grip on his own creativity. If Philippe hopes to win, he must keep Zoe from finding the missing formula. But can he betray his own heart?

The pursuit transforms into a journey of self-discovery as each struggles to understand the complexities of love, the force of pride and the meaning of family.

Merci, and happy reading!
