Once Upon a Rose

(The first book in the La Vie en Roses series)
A novel by

She stole his roses.

Fleeing the spotlight, burnt out rock star Layla - "Belle" - Dubois seeks refuge in the south of France. That old, half-forgotten heritage in a valley of roses seems like a good place to soothe a wounded heart. She certainly doesn't expect the most dangerous threat to her heart to pounce on her as soon as she sets foot on the land.

He wants them back.

Matt didn't mean to growl at her quite that loudly. But - his roses! She can't have his roses. Even if she does have all those curls and green eyes and, and, and... what was he growling about again?

Or maybe he just wants her.

When an enemy invades his valley and threatens his home, heart, and livelihood, Matthieu Rosier really knows only one way to defend himself.

It might involve kissing.

And that might be just the start.
