About this ebook

Love is an illusion…

Or so it seems to Madeleine.

Stranded during a thunderstorm, while spending yet another hard-earned holiday sorting out her mother’s chaotic love life, is proof enough. Not least because this time the creep has stolen her mother’s money and disappeared without a trace in France.

But Madeleine can’t deny the sparks of desire when a reclusive tycoon offers her shelter at his family chateau. Until a growing undercurrent of secrecy makes her doubt the enigmatic Frenchman.

Tragedy shaped Jean-Luc Delacroix’s life long ago. It’s made him overprotective of his sister and wary of strangers. However, when he discovers Madeleine is chasing a dangerous con artist, he’ll stop at nothing to protect her.

But his toughest fight of all is convincing Madeleine that happily ever after exists, even though his own family is testament that doesn’t.

Set in the beautiful French countryside, Gathering Storm is a standalone, suspenseful romance featuring a sinfully sexy hero, dark family secrets, and a heart-racing conclusion.

What readers are saying about Madeleine and Jean-Luc:

As soon as Jean-Luc and Madeleine met, I was hooked. Lust at first sight - that's believable, but their attraction goes even deeper from the start. ★★★★★

Talk about breaking down in the right place. We should all be so lucky. With a man like Jean-Luc Delacroix coming to the rescue I wouldn't want my car to ever get fixed. ★★★★★

I'm a sucker for a good love story. This one fit the bill. ★★★★★

A well written romantic suspense thriller with strong characters and an emotional story line… had me glued to the pages from beginning to end reading their story. ★★★★★
