Présentation de l'éditeur

Would you say 'no' to a free holiday in a luxury villa in France?
So when Caroline MacDonald gets the offer, why does she refuse?
Because the offer comes from her sister. Because her sister is beautiful, charming and totally manipulative. Because it's all just too good to be true.

With her self-confidence in tatters after a disastrous love affair, Caroline  is struggling to take back control of her life and right now, the last thing she needs is to be a pawn in one of Annabel's devious schemes. 
 
But then she meets the man behind the invitation, Edward Rayburn. He's cool, classy and sizzlingly sexy. From the erotic shock of their first encounter, Caroline's life changes, plunging her into a world where everything is different and full of possibilities. 

In the stunning setting of the Villa Julia, high on the hills above Biarritz, she falls in love with the romantic Basque coast and discovers the meaning of true passion in her growing relationship with Edward. But while Caroline is learning to trust again, her sister has a different agenda. For Annabel, loyalty takes second place to self-interest. Deceit and betrayal are mere tools for getting what she wants. 

Caroline's heart is telling her one thing but her instincts warn her a hidden drama is being played out, nothing she can put her finger on, just a chilling feeling in the air... 
Escape to the Basque coast with Biarritz Passion, the perfect holiday read.


Extract
'Caroline.'

Something in the tone of his voice sent chills along her skin. She heard the band begin a soft romantic tune, felt Edward's heartbeat pick up under her hand, had the sensation of swooning, falling, down down down, like a shooting star. If he hadn't reached out to hold her she would have dropped. Then she was in his arms, enfolded in a warm private world. They moved slowly, circling beneath the plane trees which flung leaf patterns over them like a magic net. She was a prisoner. Her blood tingled, inflamed by the fever coming from that hard body pressing its length against hers. She closed her eyes, letting herself be guided like a blind woman, Edward's arms encircling her, protecting her, the infection in her blood mounting as his throbbing flesh pressed against hers. Just the touch of the hairs on his arm, feather-light against her skin, was enough to send electric pulses racing through her veins.

She became aware that they had stopped. The music was still playing. Opening her eyes she saw that the other dancers continued to revolve around them like figures in a dream. Her eyes sought his face, but it was in shadow, only the gleam of his teeth visible, white against the dark skin.

Without a word he led her from the dance floor, beyond the tables, towards the trees. She realised they were going away from the square and into the shadows of the adjoining streets.

They stopped beside a low wall which enclosed a public garden. She could make out the vague shapes of benches dotted here and there among the bushes. Edward leaned back against a tree and drew her close. It was uncannily dark and quiet after the lights and music. A breeze rustled the leaves overhead. She started to shake.

'You're cold.'

His voice came out of the shadows and he held her more tightly against him.

'No, not cold.'

Was that her voice?

'Do you want to go back?'

His voice sounded different too, low, charged.

Her stomach churned. The teasing ambivalence of their former relations had vanished, replaced by something urgent, dangerous, a force she was incapable of resisting. A barrier had broken.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Inspired by her Yorkshire Mother's favourite maxim 'Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think' (there's a song in there somewhere) Laurette decided to fulfil her lifelong ambition to write a fictional novel this year and after some sharp intakes of breath managed to upload 'Biarritz Passion' onto the KDP site in March 2014 - a newbie!
Previously she had followed a career in teaching and materials creation, largely in France but also in the US and the UK. Her coursebook for advanced learners of English, 'Fast Forward Advanced' was published by Oxford University Press in 1991. She also translated a work of literary criticism by Jean Méral, 'Paris in American Literature' (University of North Carolina Press).
It was the move from inner city flat to ridiculously large country house that set the fictional creative juices flowing. As all around were downsizing and going on cruises, she decided to upsize and work very hard.
As the Beatles said 'I get by with a little help from my friends.' Thanks to those friends, family, and a wonderful partner for that more than 'little' help.
A sequel to 'Biarritz Passion' is in the pipeline.

Par SIARAM

Personnages très bien dessinés, descriptions très réalistes (presque-noyade, vaches landaises, ciels d'orage, ambiance chez Aunt Margaret ...), style percutant et vocabulaire extrêment riche et soigné. J'ai adoré et attends la suite avec impatience.

I admit to being a francophile but I loved this book! The characters were totally believable and I wanted to know what happened next. In fact if it hadn't been for life getting in the way I would have read it in one sitting. It was one of those books that you are disappointed to finish. Might there be a sequel? It did seem quite open ended!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Felt more like a travel guide than a romance. SPOILERS 2 mai 2014
Par Jen Quinn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I had a difficult time getting into the story because of the way it was told. It starts out near the end (but not AT the end), morphs into a dream sequence that was unclear as to whether it was a memory, and if so, at what point in the story it happened, goes back to the near-end again, then jumps to the past, where the story should have started to begin with.
The spineless heroine allows herself to be controlled and manipulated by her 8-years younger sister, who is a horrible human being with virtually no redeeming qualities. She falls in love with a man with whom she has only superficial encounters (aside from one real conversation), accuses him of having an affair with her sister, runs back to her aging aunties, and ends up with a predictable HEA when said man comes for her.
Interspersed throughout this frustrating, convoluted and not very believable tale is a lovely description of Biarritz and its surrounding area. The travel-guide aspect was nice, and made me want to visit, but the love-story portion I could have lived without.

I normally wouldn't read a romantic novel... But a good friend recommended it and so I downloaded it a couple months ago... and did not read it, until I found myself stranded with my Kindle and nothing to do. So I thought 'What the hell, let's give it a try!'. This was yesterday... I started BP and could not put it down...
This is the best book I've read in quite a while. Ms Long has a rare knack for picturesque depictions (she makes you want to book the first flight to Biarritz and spend your holiday in the 'Pays Basque'), a sure talent for telling stories with a few surprises (her plot is embroidered like the quilt on Caroline's bed), and a great gift for portraying wonderful characters (by the last chapter, you feel as if you've known them all for quite a while; all, even the most peripheral ones, have a vivid presence, and you can't even hate the bitchy sister!). What I enjoyed the most is that Ms Long's writing conveys her love for people and that her passion for life transpires throughout the book. Reading the last words, I cried. I certainly did not expect THAT!
What a charming book! Hurray for Ms Long! Many thanks for a great reading time. Hurry up publishing "Hot Basque". Can't wait. You got me hooked!
