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 Sebastien? 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 Sebastien 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. . . .
A Fulbright Scholar, Laura Florand has lived in France, Spain, and French Polynesia. She currently teaches French at Duke University in North Carolina. In real life she married Sebastien Florand four times. The number of ceremonies made everyone else think she was crazy but made her French in-laws quite happy. They now have a daughter, to the delight of "la belle-mere."
