PARIS BY HEART - NO. 1 BESTSELLER IN AUSTRALIA!
She came to Paris to forget about men, but the city of love has different plans for her...
Elise Reid wasted years on a bad relationship, dreaming when she could have been doing. Now she’s making up for lost time — taking all of her savings and heading straight for Paris and the Cordon d’Or cooking school, the first step in her café dreams.
No dream is without its roadblocks, and Elise’s come in the form of a dark, delicious, decidedly rude Frenchman who works in the café below her studio apartment.
Forced to tutor Paul in exchange for reduced rent, Elise finds herself laughing, teasing and sharing her dreams. But there’s more to this story than mixing together two people and adding a dash of spice. Elise has been hurt before, and Paul has problems of his own.
There are 14 000 kilometres between Australia and Paris, but that may be nothing compared to the emotional distance two people have to cross...losing their baggage along the way.
