Book Review: The Chocolate Heart

the chocolate heartThe Chocolate Heart by Laura Florand (contemporary, Kensington, December 2013, $14.00, 368pp)

Series: part of The Chocolate series

No one hates Paris - except Summer Corey. The moody winters. The artists and their ennui. The inescapable shadow of the Tour Eiffel. But things go from bad to worse when Summer stumbles into brooding, gorgeous chef patissier Luc Leroi and indecently propositions the hero of French cuisine...Luc has scrambled up from a childhood panhandling in the Paris Metro to become the king of his city, and he has no patience for this spoiled princess, even if she does now own his restaurant. Who cares if she smiles with all the warmth of July? She doesn't eat dessert! There is only one way to tempt her. A perfect, impossibly sweet seduction...

Laura Florand - Author PhotoToday, Laura Florand stops by to answer a few questions about her most recent release, The Chocolate Heart, an angsty yet wonderful touching romance set in Paris. The Chocolate is an RNN Recommended Read – and one of our picks for best contemporary romance of 2013. If you haven’t read this book (or if you haven’t read Laura Florand), we recommend you do so NOW!


1. Chocolate and Paris tickle so many women's romance sensors, and you manage to combine both in your current series. Why chocolate and why Paris?

I lived in Paris and met my own husband there, and I honestly did not always find that city easy. But it’s so vivid, so full of romance, and it’s layered with centuries and centuries of romantic power over people’s imaginations. It’s a symbol of going for that one big dream – you have to see Paris. There’s no other city quite like it. And the fact that it’s both hugely romantic and real, that you have to face the reality of your dream once you go to it, makes it all the more compelling for story, I think.

HeartofaDukeVictoria Morgan’s The Heart of a Duke is a historical romance with heart. Morgan tells the story of Lady Julia Chandler who is caught between twin brothers: Lord Daniel Bryant and Edmund, the Duke of Bedford. She is engaged to one - who is a rather nasty character -  but drawn to the other - who is everything his evil brother is not. The Heart of a Duke is Morgan’s second book and is one that is perfect for fans of historical romance. Julia and Daniel’s poignant love story is filled with intriguing twists and turns. The setup for the next book also had me hooked (Brett and Emily, I hope!!!). I could not put this one down. While the ending did not surprise – especially because of the title of the book – Morgan made it work. I was convinces that the resolution was the only way for this one to end. This is an author that readers should watch.

Guest Author Post: Leah Braemel on Slow Ride Home

SlowRideHome Leah-BraemelToday, Leah Braemel stops by to talk about her latest release, Slow Ride Home, a contemporary romance set on a ranch. Read on to find out how to enter to win a gift card from Leah Braemel.


From Leah Braemel:

My latest book, Slow Ride Home, is once again set in Texas. Which causes a lot of questions about why a Canadian would write about a Texan cowboy when we have our own cowboys, most of whom live out west in Alberta. But when I think cowboys, I think Texans first, probably influenced by all the televisions I grew up watching, but especially since I visited Texas back in 2007.
