I swear you won't see it coming.' ---The Book Enthusiast

Pearl & Belle Pearl follows Arianne Richmonde’s bestselling books in The Pearl Trilogy: Shades of Pearl, Shadows of Pearl and Shimmers of Pearl; the tumultuous and heart-rending love story between forty-year-old documentary producer, Pearl Robinson, and French Internet billionaire, Alexandre Chevalier, fifteen years her junior. 
Pearl & Belle Pearl is written from Alexandre’s point of view, from the moment he and Pearl first meet on a rainy summer’s day in a coffee shop in New York City. In any relationship details are hidden; things are left unsaid. Not all conversations are remembered in the same way. And not all actions are disclosed—especially to the one you love most. 

In Belle Pearl the story is continued beyond Shimmers of Pearl and has a completely different ending than the trilogy. 

At only twenty-five, Alexandre Chevalier is a billionaire. His social media site, HookedUp, is more popular than Twitter, more global than Facebook. With his devastating looks, alluring charm, and his immense wealth, he has women falling at his feet, desperate for his attention—ex girlfriends and an ex-fiancée who simply cannot let him go. Although his heart is set on only Pearl, she tests him to his limits and proves that she is even more damaged than he first believed. 

Alexandre’s dark and dysfunctional past makes him crave a normal relationship with Pearl but he soon finds out that she is not your average woman. However, he believes that they are both two peas in the same dysfunctional pod, made to ‘disfunction’ together, and is determined to make their union work. But Pearl puts Alexandre in a position where he is made to choose. His loyalties are split, his patience torn. 
After many trials, misunderstandings, and revelations of dark secrets, finally their wedding ensues and it looks as if their happily ever after is sealed. 

Until something unforeseen rips their world apart. 

(Not stand-alone - to be read after The Pearl Trilogy) Sexy language and situations. 18+
