Back to France

france
Camargue, France

In February, my new story will be published by Inkspell Publishing. In it, I’m returning to France, for a short trip, but still.

This will be the third time that my characters visit France. In Letting Go, Isabelle returns from Paris where she went to visit the museums and galleries to feed the art enthusiast in her. As she and Harper get to know each other, she realizes Harper, too, is a romantic at heart and that he took a past love on a trip to Paris.

Charlise from On the Slopes is French, and in the second part of the story, she returns home for Christmas to sort out her complicated relationship with her dad. When Sam visits her unexpectedly, she dumps him for the second time because she’s too scared to start a relationship with him.

Both novellas were romances with loveable–albeit a bit confused ;-)–characters. But my third visit to France is a lot more intense, and the main character has a darker past which comes back to haunt her. The story takes place in London, but to escape her pursuer the protagonist, Anais, flees to France, to her family’s old estate.

There is something about France and the French that has attracted me ever since I first visited the country. I’m intrigued by the country’s interesting history and the charming culture. And there’s something to be said for the rolling hills of the wine regions and the beautiful capital which captures everyone’s attention on first sight. It’s one of my favorite countries and I’d love to live there but since I can’t, I have my characters visit it on a regular basis (My current work in progress is set in Paris. Again.). Talk about living vicariously through fictional characters, eh?

Ever been to France? Did you like it? Which are your favorite places and spaces?

 

Hearts must be broken is coming out as part of Inkspell‘s box set Valentine Kisses in February 2017.

Excerpt

“Can you drive stick?” Once the rain let up in the afternoon, Sam needed to go into town. It was his turn to buy groceries.

“Sure.” Charlise grabbed at the chance to get out of the house because so much testosterone was doing her head in. “Why?”

Sam let out a breath. “You’re driving, then. I don’t get these European cars. Why can’t they be automatic?”

She chuckled, thrilled to be better at this than one of the boys.

Sam and Todd were from the US, while Thor was German. Most of the film crew was American, hired by their American sponsor. She was the only French on the team.

“Aren’t men supposed to be tech savvy?” she teased him as she started the car and turned up the heater. The temperatures had dropped to around zero, and snow had been forecast for the evening.

“Not being able to drive stick is not a gender thing, it’s cultural,” he said indignantly.

She snickered. “Freud would have a field day with you mentioning stick and gender in the same sentence.”

“Har fucking har,” Sam said, but, despite his grumpy tone, a smile curved his lips.

“It’s a good thing, anyway,” she said smugly. “You not being able to drive around at least means you can’t kick me out because you need me.”

“I’m sure there are others on the team who can drive stick,” he said, challenging her.

She glanced at him with a grin. “I’m sure.” After a pause, she added, “But none of the boys are as cute as me.”

He chuckled, but it annoyed her that he didn’t agree. He always liked to flirt with all the girls at snowboarding competitions, but he never flirted with her. She didn’t feel comfortable being singled out this way. She liked it when boys flirted with her. It made her feel powerful, and it was a big letdown Sam wouldn’t grant her the power.

Expectations and full moon

This has been a strange week.

I’m impatiently waiting to see the cover of my novella for the first time. I’m trying to not think about it because I don’t want to have any ideas; I want the designer to surprise me.

Also, this was a killer full moon. Sleepless nights, writer’s block, then a wave of inspiration that had me writing for hours until my hands started cramping …

Not to mention the insane weather!

As soon as the weekend is here, I’ll try to forget this week and focus on the next one. It’s only 8 more days until the publication of Letting Go on Friday, 24th. Can’t wait. I’m getting excited and nervous. :-)))))
