Description

When an American heiress and a French chocolatier butt heads, the business of chocolate is about to become a labor of love in this romantic comedy.

Paris

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 . . .

Chocolate

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 . . .

Stolen Pleasure

Whether confections taken from a locked shop or kisses in the dark, is there anything sweeter?

Praise for The Chocolate Thief

"A delectable summer bonbon . . . The Chocolate Thief is for days when you lust not for wisdom, but for a bar of chocolate—at any price—and a hero who understands what is truly important: 'Every dream I have has you in my apartment, has you in my laboratoire, has you with my babies . . . Every chocolate I've made since I met you, I've made for you.'" —Eloisa James, NPR.org

"It's like when you find that amazing piece of chocolate—you take a bite, and it sits on your tongue and melts into a pool of liquid heaven: Florand has managed to capture that emotional experience and put it into the pages of her novel." —RT Book Reviews

"[A] comfortable beach read . . . A good, fun read." —Publishers Weekly

The Chocolate Thief
fullDescription

When an American heiress and a French chocolatier butt heads, the business of chocolate is about to become a labor of love in this romantic comedy.

Paris

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 . . .

Chocolate

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 . . .

Stolen Pleasure

Whether confections taken from a locked shop or kisses in the dark, is there anything sweeter?

Praise for The Chocolate Thief

"A delectable summer bonbon . . . The Chocolate Thief is for days when you lust not for wisdom, but for a bar of chocolate—at any price—and a hero who understands what is truly important: 'Every dream I have has you in my apartment, has you in my laboratoire, has you with my babies . . .

        October 22, 2012
        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 clichéd) 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. Agent: Kimberly Cameron, Kimberly Cameron Associates)
