With a rundown chateau.
There’s just one snag.
The new owner is planning on turning it into a bland monstrosity for the rich and famous. Winning the interior design contract is the only way for Chantal to save the once magnificent Chateau Vauquelin.
However, persuading Alessandro Kirkwood that she’s the right person for the job isn’t easy. He thinks she’s just some poor little rich girl who will disappear when the going gets tough.
Fortunately, he can’t resist her ideas.
After a disastrous engagement, Alessandro is sworn off women. Especially ones that work for him. Although something about the vulnerability he sees in the confrontational designer makes him want to break his self-imposed rule.
But a series of mysterious incidents at the chateau alters everything.
Now Chantal remembers more than she’ll admit about that fateful day her parents died.
And the memory makes her blood run cold.
Set in a Parisian chateau, Ruinous Designs is a standalone, suspenseful romance featuring a sexy hotelier, a sassy interior designer, and a lost memory that threatens to destroy them all.
Sara Claridge writes contemporary romantic suspense. Born in West London, she inexplicably moved to France several years ago on a whim.
When not writing at her desk in the eaves of an old farmhouse, she can be found in the garden. Usually with a glass of red wine in one hand and a good book in the other.
