Her father’s worst enemy...
Top chef Gabriel Delange never forgave his old nemesis Pierre Manon for all the other chef had cost him.
One stolen rose...
And he most certainly couldn’t stand the sight of his own most famous dessert, the legendary Rose, claimed as Pierre’s own on the cover of his new cookbook.
A beast’s substitute victim...
But even Gabriel could hardly go through with a lawsuit when he learned the older chef had just had a stroke. Especially not when Pierre had one very cute daughter willing to be Gabriel’s victim instead.
A fascinated beauty...
As a child, Jolie Manon had seen her family torn apart by her top chef father’s obsession with his work. As a food writer, she might be fascinated with a chef’s work, but she knew how to guard her heart. She would never allow another chef into her life.
Unless he blackmailed her into it...
Welcome to the heat and sun of Provence, where jasmine and roses climb up old colored walls, where fountains play in ancient stone villages, and where even a beast can prove he is a prince at heart...

“I adored this story…Paris, chocolate, and romance, all in one hilarious package.”
—New York Times best-selling author Eloisa James
"Sensuous and sumptuous…a mouth-watering tale of slow-burning passion..." ~ RT Book Reviews
Readers will devour this frothy, fun novel.—Booklist
A Michelin two-star chef at twenty-eight, Violette Lenoir could handle anything, including a cocky burglar who broke into her restaurant in the middle of the night.
Or so she thought.
Elite counterterrorist operative Chase “Smith” had been through things that made Hell Week look easy. But nothing had prepared him for a leather-clad blonde who held him at bay at knifepoint and dared him to take her on.
Now if only saving the world didn’t require he ruin her life.
Two people who thought they could handle anything now have to take on each other. It's a battle neither one expected. But with their futures on the line, they have nothing to lose...but their hearts.
Warning: This book contains one arrogant Navy SEAL, nights of Paris passion, and a woman who wants to have it all.
Namun, tidak untuk wanita Amerika sepertiku. Aku sudah tidak tahan lagi berjalan (sok) anggun dengan highheels ini. Menurutku, Paris juga bukan kota teromantis di dunia. Dan tolong catat, semua itu berawal dari Sylvain Marquis yang dengan sombongnya menolakku untuk bekerja sama.
Oh God! Apa dia tidak mengenaliku? Aku ini Cade Corey, pewaris tahta Corey Chocolate, perusahaan cokelat terbesar di Amerika. Oke, lihat saja .... Memangnya hanya dia satu-satunya pembuat cokelat terbaik di dunia ini?!
