You all know that I love my Contemporary Romance right?
One of my more recent favorites is Jeanette Grey! I just love everything about her stories… the writing, the characters, the sexy times.. a whirlwind Paris romance… it’s all pretty amazing!
If you haven’t read any of her books, her latest coming on April 5th is the second in her Art of Passion series.
How about a little bit about book 1:
By day, he’ll show her a side of Paris not found in any guidebook. By night, he’ll introduce her to a passion beyond her wildest dreams. In this sensuous story of indulgence and desire, Jeanette Grey delivers one of the most romantic reads of the year and proves why she is fast becoming a must-read star.
SEVEN NIGHTS TO SURRENDER
Kate arrives in Paris hoping to find inspiration. Instead she finds Rylan. In a swirl of stolen kisses and hot, tangled sheets, Kate is quickly swept away by the sexy stranger, longing to surrender to his expert touch. With Rylan, nothing is forbidden-except the truth.
An American ex-pat worth millions, Rylan never flaunts his fortune. Rather, he guards his identity from everyone, especially women. No strings, no commitments, no complications. But the second his lips taste Kate’s soft, sweet skin, everything changes. For the first time, Rylan has found someone to share his every want and need. Yet he knows that secrets stand between them. To keep her, he’ll need to confess the truth before it’s too late . . . even if doing so could mean losing Kate forever.
I’m a huge fan of Jeanette Grey – I’ve always loved the way she creates such amazingly layered characters that you can’t help but want to know everything about.
In Seven Nights To Surrender, we meet Kate, an art student who is trying to decide on her life path, and is using a trip to Paris and her life savings to try and help make that decision. A chance pick-pocketing provides Rylan with an opportunity to charm her, hopefully off her feet and into his bed.
Rylan is nursing some major wounds inflicted by his family and he’s basically cut all ties with his family and the company that affords him the lifestyle he currently has. Hooking up with tourists is the ideal because there’s no commitment and no ties.
I love that Grey practically takes you to Paris with this book – the amazing art and architecture is all here and described so lovingly. She really makes it all a part of the story. As Rylan and Kate spend more time together, we find them both pushing the limits of comfort… Rylan emotionally, and Kate sexually.
Kate’s history with guys hasn’t been great, and Rylan has had more than his share of sex.
“You’ve been sleeping with idiots,” he repeated. He kissed the shell of her ear, wet and slow. “Here’s the trick. You can get a man to do all kinds of things. But you have to tell him what you want.”
And as Kate learns more and more to demand certain things, she and Rylan connect on a level that deepens each day they are together. Until something happens that has her questioning the connection she thought was growing between them.
I for one am seriously excited for the next book and can’t wait for more of Rylan and Kate. As a side note, I truly hope that Grey is going to possibly explore Rylan’s sister’s story… after meeting her here, I’d love to learn more about her!
If you’re looking for a deeply emotional story filled with steam and sensuality then this is the read for you. Kate and Rylan will have you turning pages as fast as you can just to see where their relationship might go.
Add this one to your TBR pile as soon as you can, and go read some of her other titles, I guarantee you’ll fall for her story-telling just like I have.
NOW – how about a bit about book 2?
Kate Reid’s whirlwind romance with billionaire playboy Rylan Bellamy complicated her life in ways she’d worked to avoid. She’d fallen hard for his flirtatious charm and given him the one thing no other man had: her trust. Just as Kate began to imagine a future with Rylan, everything fell apart.
Now she’s starting over in New York…but even the glittering streets of Manhattan can’t erase the memory of Rylan knocking her off her feet and sweeping her into the most erotic, unforgettable week of her life.
It’s been months, and Rylan still can’t forget Kate. Months since he bared his soul at her feet. Months since he drove away the only woman to ever make him feel. Kate changed his world and now Rylan is determined to win her back-no matter what it takes. After crossing an ocean to reach her, he makes a deal with Kate: One more week, for one more chance. Now it’s up to Rylan to show Kate all the ways they fit together . . . and prove that this player has met his perfect match.
