Like E L James' DARKER, and GREY, this is a male point of view romance - the flip side of the story. The PEARL TRILOGY as told by Alexandre Chevalier. However, there are MANY new scenes not in the first three books, and PEARL can be read and enjoyed in its own right.

At only twenty-five, CEO Alexandre Chevalier is a billionaire. His international social media enterprise, HookedUp, is more popular than Twitter and Instagram, more global than Facebook. With Alexandre's drop-dead gorgeous looks, alluring charm, and immense wealth, he has women falling at his feet, desperate for his attention. 

But his heart is set on only one woman: Pearl Robinson. 

Alexandre’s dark and dysfunctional past makes him crave stability and a normal relationship, but he soon finds out that Pearl is a bird with a broken wing. Why, he isn't sure. But he is determined to find out.

PEARL follows Arianne Richmonde’s USA TODAY bestselling series, THE PEARL TRILOGY: SHADES OF PEARL, SHADOWS OF PEARL, and SHIMMERS OF PEARL, the tumultuous and heart-rending love story between 40-year-old documentary producer, Pearl Robinson, and French social media billionaire, Alexandre Chevalier, fifteen years her junior.

Pearl is written from Alexandre’s point of view, from the moment they 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.

What people are saying about PEARL:

"Five stars because Alexandre is worth every one of them."
-- The Book Enthusiast

"I LOVE LOVE LOVE Alexandre! I have been looking forward to reading this book and I can say without a doubt...it was worth the wait!"
-- The Literary Nook

"I went completely crazy over Alexandre in The Pearl Trilogy and I fell even more crazy in love with him in Pearl."
-- Books, Babes and Cheap Cabernet

"Don't miss out on this amazingly hot and smoldering read...you will love it!"
-- Two Crazy Girls With A Passion For Books

"I devoured this book and loved every second of it."
-- The Book Blog

"CALL THE FIRE BRIGADE my house is burning down from Alexandre's sexpertise!!"
---Island Lovelies Book Club

"This is a "MUST READ"!!!!"
-- Sugar and Spice Book Review

"Alexandre is one of my original Book Boyfriends right up there with FIFTY.. this new look at him only solidified that crush."
--Mommy's A Book Whore 

*This full-length, billionaire romance novel is continued with BELLE PEARL, the final book in The Pearl Series, also a full-length novel.*



"I have to say that as the conclusion for this series, it was definitely a roller coaster ride! I was shocked, I was surprised, and I was ultimately floored with the turn of events! It was that interesting and unexpected!! I absolutely LOVED this book and devoured every minute." 
--Kawehi Book Blog 

"5 Stars. "I've loved Alexandre since book 1. Reading the series from his POV just made me love him more." 
--Nade Ferrabee 

"Can Pearl and Alexandre really have their HEA? You must read to find out. But I PROMISE you, it is a truly amazing ride and finale. One you will never see coming!" --Sammie's Book Blog 

This book continues from where we left off in Pearl, from Alexandre’s point of view, and continues the story BEYOND Shimmers of Pearl, so has a completely different ending than the trilogy. As with Pearl, there are many scenes in this novel that do not feature in The Pearl Trilogy. 

Belle Pearl is the fifth book and the conclusion to Arianne Richmonde’s bestselling books in The Pearl Series: Shades of Pearl, Shadows of Pearl, Shimmers of Pearl, and 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. 

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 anything but your average woman. However, he believes that they are both two peas in the same dysfunctional pod, made to ‘dis-function’ 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, their wedding finally ensues and it looks as if their happily ever after is sealed.

Until something unforeseen rips their world apart. 

This is novel #5 - the conclusion to The Pearl Series and is by no means stand-alone.
