Présentation de l'éditeur

A free holiday in a luxury villa? On the romantic French Basque coast?
No thanks.
It’s an offer that’s just too good to be true, especially when it comes from your sister. Your baby sister Annabel, beautiful, charming and utterly manipulative.
The last thing Caroline MacDonald needs right now is to be a pawn in one of Annabel’s devious schemes. With her self-confidence in tatters after a disastrous love affair, Caroline is struggling to take back control of her life.
But then she meets the man behind the invitation, Edward Rayburn. He’s rich, he’s classy and he is sizzlingly sexy. From the erotic shock of their first encounter, Caroline’s life changes, gathering speed and 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 finds her faith in herself returning as she discovers the joy of new friendships and confronts the power of true passion.
But while Caroline is learning to love and 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.
And so, while Caroline’s heart is telling her one thing, 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...

Something in the tone of his voice sent chills along her skin. She dimly 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 and danced, seeing nothing, 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 bare skin, was enough to send electric pulses racing through her veins.
She gradually 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, there was only the gleam of his teeth, 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 bright 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 Diogenes

Caroline MacDonald worries that life is passing her by.

With a dead-end job at the Inland Revenue, a stalkery ex-boyfriend, the younger sister from Hell, and the Big Three-O rapidly approaching, Caroline doesn't have too much to smile about... until the offer of a free holiday in a beautiful villa in Biarritz comes along. But is the offer too good to be true?

'Biarritz Passion' is a slow-burner love story with believable, very human - and sometimes flawed - characters. Acquitaine comes to life with Ms. Long's vivid descriptions of its people and culture. It is an artfully-structured tale which will appeal to the romantic reader.

A five-star beach companion.

An interesting story set in the south-west of France, a place that I know. The characters are interesting, except perhaps Annabel, the heroin's sister, who is really impossible, and about whom the end is quite surprising.
Pleasant to read anyway.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Un charmant et piquant roman de vacances 5 mai 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
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!
