Description

The first standalone book in CJ Duggan's HEART OF THE CITY series - a very sassy, super sexy New Adult romance from the internationally bestselling author of the SUMMER and PARADISE series. 'You're breaking up with me!' He was silent. 'In Paris.' Eyes dropping. 'Under the Eiffel-fucking-Tower!' I screamed. Twenty-five-year-old Claire Shorten had looked forward to spending a romantic weekend in Paris for as long as she could remember, and now it was here - three blissful days of strolling through cobbled streets arm-in-arm with her beloved, eating copious amounts of baked goods and soaking up the culture through each and every pore of her body. Well, at least, that was how she'd pictured it ...Even after her boyfriend dumps her rather unceremoniously in the most romantic place on earth, Claire is determined not to give up on her dream altogether - with or without a boyfriend. She finds herself a job in the kitchen of a small hotel; Michelin-starred it most certainly is not, but somehow Claire makes a place for herself amidst the dirty dishes and the foreign misfits who run the place. When the restaurant attracts the attention of the enigmatic - if not slightly terrifying - tycoon Louis Delarue, and Claire manages to survive his high-powered business luncheon from hell, she knows that she can survive anything, surely. But all bets are off when Louis makes a game-changing decision: he's coming back for a second course ...PRAISE FOR CJ DUGGAN'S HEART OF THE CITY SERIES: 'C.J. Duggan's book are the perfect treat for me, combining beautiful locations with a fun, sexy read.' Sam Still Reading 'CJ has written a fun quick romance that engages you from beginning to end. While this book is part of a series, it can definitely be read as a standalone. I recommend it to any reader looking for a hard fought romance that is tinged with some really unexpected secrets that will leave you rooting for this unique pair.' Julie Kitzmiller, Little Read Riding Hood PRAISE FOR CJ DUGGAN'S PREVIOUS BOOKS: 'I loved this book - it's the perfect beach read.' Flying Through Pages 'I loved every moment ...C.J. is a born storyteller that breathes a realism into her characters and situations that we've all found ourselves in.' Diva Book Nerd 'PARADISE CITY is the same brand of feel good, fun and sexy romance that I have come to love from this author' Book Briefs 'I love Duggan's writing and PARADISE CITY was a hoot. I cannot wait for the next book! Is it August yet?'show more

The romance between Louis and Claire is downright dreamy, sweet and perfect. Paris Lights will leave you in a loving and romantic mood. -- Lola Bell Mile High Kink Bookclub The characters come to life on the pages and of course the setting is fabulous... highly recommend this one it is sure to keep you turning the pages -- Nancy Ouelette Netgalley If you haven't tried C.J. Duggan as yet, grab Paris Lights and immerse yourself into this addictive world today! -- Naomi Hop Naomi's Reading Palace lighthearted and fun, chock full of romance -- Kate B Fictional Thoughts Duggan has done a great job with the fact that Claire falls into a relationship reasonably quickly after the disastrous end to her previous one. I was a little concerned that the possibility of a 'rebound' relationship but shouldn't have been. The Parisian landscape is worked into the story beautifully and certainly adds to the storytelling. A lovely story that certainly sets a strong precedent for the following stories in the series. -- Jaimee Brooker AusRom Today I loved getting swept away with Claire and Louis, and I look forward to seeing where we are taken with the next Heart Of The City book Netgalley it's entertaining as hell Heather Andrews (NetGalley) beautifully written, witty, heartwarming, romantic Netgalley incredible and dynamic writing Netgalley I have read all the other books written by CJ Duggan but I have to say this is my favourite Netgalley well-written with a clever plot Netgalley A unique look at making the best out of a remarkably bad situation.
