Blame It on Paris

Laura Florand

Forge Books




Laura has spent most of her adult life avoiding serious relationships, flitting around the world, and keeping her romantic expectations comfortably low. As far as she's concerned, chocolate is just as satisfying as true love---and a lot less complicated.

So how has she managed to get involved with a dangerously charming Frenchman named Sébastien? And only weeks before she's scheduled to leave Paris for good?

The cultural differences alone are enough to kill any relationship. She's from small-town Georgia. He's a sophisticated Parisian. They go together like grits and escargot.

But Sébastien isn't just any Frenchman. He's a gorgeous, sweet, sexy, graphic artist, and as the days slip by, Laura's finding it harder and harder to say adieu.

Unless she comes to her senses soon, she could end up ruining her life with a beautiful romance. . . .

Praise for Blame It on Paris

“A fabulous romp from Paris to Podunk and back again. Loved it. Laura Florand's reluctant heroine is adorable, and her perfect Parisian amour can wait on my table anytime.” —Haywood Smith, New York Times bestselling author of the Red Hat Club series

“Offers up an outsider's oddly inside view of Paris, and does so in a narrative that is by turns witty and touching, but always charming. Do yourself a favor: Read this book.” —Joshilyn Jackson, author of Gods in Alabama

“A fun, frothy tale for anyone who has ever conjured up a dashing foreigner to sweep her off her feet. Readers will be happy to live vicariously in Laura's French fairy tale.” —Booklist
