About this ebook

They’ll have to trust in each other—and in love—to survive the gathering storm.

Traveling overseas to find the creep who stole her mother’s money was not the holiday of Madeleine’s dreams. Getting stranded on a road in rural France wasn’t her idea of a good time, either. But being rescued by a handsome, reclusive billionaire who offered her shelter at his chateau? Now that had the potential to be interesting…and complicated…

With the secrets he keeps, Jean-Luc Delacroix can’t afford to trust strangers. Which is why he never should’ve gotten involved in Madeleine’s family drama. Or acted on his attraction to her. But there’s just something about her that makes him forget everything he should be doing...

Can two opposites who weren’t looking for a happily ever after still manage to claim one? Only if they can overcome the trauma of their pasts and hunt down a dangerous conman first…

Gathering Storm, book 1 in the Tangled Hearts series, is a sexy romantic suspense novel that can be read as a standalone. Download today to escape to the French countryside and fall for Madeleine and Jean-Luc.

This is the first book of a romantic suspense that takes place in the French countryside. An amazing beginning to what will be a great trio. It won't take you long to get emotionally involved with Madeline and Jean-Luc. Insta-love and explosive chemistry. No shortage of drama or angst. A real page turner with extensive backstory and a great story line. I read a free advance copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

About the author

Sara Claridge writes contemporary romantic suspense novels that blend mystery and intrigue with passionate romance.

Born in London, her life took an unexpected turn when she followed her adventurous spirit and relocated to France several years ago on a whim. It’s here, nestled in the eaves of an old farmhouse deep in the French countryside, that she lets her imagination run wild, weaving tales of love, mystery, and danger.

When not writing at her desk, Sara can often be found in the garden. Usually with a glass of red wine in one hand and a good book in the other.
