She thought she was in love...
American Lola Laforet is swept away in a whirlwind wedding to a handsome Frenchman and finds herself the chef/owner of the Hotel Riviera, a gemlike retreat snuggled up against the blue Mediterranean. In their first blissful year as newlyweds, her life seems to be a dream come true. But then charming Patrick Laforet disappears one day with nothing more than a wave goodbye...
...until real romance beckoned on France's Cote d'Azur!
Six months later, Jack Ferrar, an American expatriate living on his boat, drops anchor in Lola's harbor and teaches her the true meaning of attraction. Lola is very attracted yet wary. Is he another rogue, or a man to be trusted? When various shady people-all claiming ownership of the Hotel Riviera-and the police appear, Lola and Jack have to track down the mysterious Patrick. And along the way, they fall in love. With great food, wonderful sensuality, and lush scenery, Elizabeth Adler holds you under her spell and transports you to one of the most romantic places on earth.
