From Reviewers’ Choice Book of the Year nominee and bestselling author Laura Florand: Ruth.
That was what they said about Damien Rosier. Handsome. Wealthy. Powerful. Merci. No one messed with his family, because to do so they would have to get through him. No one thought he had a heart. Not even the woman he gave his to. Cynical. That was what they said about Jasmin Bianchi. A top perfumer of her generation, Jess had achieved commercial success by growing a protective shell over a tender heart. The one time she cracked it open to let Damien in, he crushed it—after a night of unbelievable passion. Lovers. That one magical night couldn’t survive the harsh light of dawn. When Jess woke up to discover the man in bed beside her had stolen her company, she fled. Enemies. Now she’s come to the south of France with a threat to his family heritage. If he wants to reclaim both it and the woman who walked away from him, he’s going to have to fight as dirty as only Damien can. But Jess knows how to fight dirty, too. And these days, she has nothing left to lose. Certainly not her heart. Come explore the south of France, a world of heat and fragrance and tales as old as time, through the stories of the five powerful Rosier cousins and the women who win their hearts.
A Wish Upon Jasmine, book two in Florand’s addictive new series, La Vie en Roses. “Explosive, sensual, and utterly sweet” (Eloisa James).
