Teaser from 76% of Paris Mon Amour
I pressed the button to call the elevator, impatient for him to be gone before I could open my mouth and tell him I was coming with him after all. His face would break into a genuine smile, the first in days, if not weeks. There’d be that fracture in his reply that he can’t help when emotion gets the better of him.
And despite the leisurely weeks ahead, we’d rewind to where we were five minutes ago and the kind of kiss that really can’t stop there, ruhing back to the bedroom though I’d already pulled the sheets off the bed and left them in a heap in the corner. It would be passionate and intense, as if we were brand new people, bringing us both to the brink of tears.
But only if I said I was going with him and didn’t come out with something else, like the truth.
Paris Mon Amour by Isabel Costello
The first time I caused terrible harm to the people I love it was an accident. The second is the reason I’m here.
When Alexandra discovers that her husband Philippe is having an affair, she can’t believe he’d risk losing the love that has transformed both their lives.
Still in shock, Alexandra finds herself powerfully attracted to a much younger man. Jean-Luc Malavoine is twenty-three, intense and magnetic. He’s also the son of Philippe’s best friend.
With every increasingly passionate liaison, Alexandra is pulled deeper into a situation that threatens everyone she holds dear.
Beautifully told through the boulevards and arrondissements of the City of Light, Paris Mon Amour is a sensual novel about inescapable desire and devastating betrayals. It is the story of one woman and two men, and what happens when there is no way out.
