JE T’AIME… MAYBE? (book II)
New! The Sequel to Je T’Aime, Me Neither released early Nov 2016
After barely surviving a turbulent series of romantic misadventures in the City of Love (found in the first volume, Je T’aime, Me Neither), our heart-torn heroine Lily is ready to throw in the towel on amour. That is, until she receives a very unexpected email—one which revives her hope in finding true love … yet at the same time awakens the mischievous, passionate energy of Paris.
Will she manage to connect with her potential soul mate, located on the other side of the globe? And if she does … then what? Could she leave her beloved Paris to pursue a different sort of love? A challenging dilemma made all the more complicated by love-struck policemen knocking at her door; elegant Counts tempting her with glamorous trips to the tropics; rebellious rock stars whisking her off to concerts around Europe; and a whole new crew of troublesome romantic contenders who emerge from the Parisian woodwork. It’s an exciting journey, but will it lead her to a heart-filled heaven … or heartless purgatory.
“Romantic misadventures in the City of Love? Count me in! Hilarious and entertaining, one of the best parts of this romantic tale is that it’s based on true events. If you’ve ever dreamed of finding love in the City of Light, grab this book and follow Lily la Tigresse on her lively journey!” – Vicki Lesage, author of Confessions of a Paris Party Girl
“If you’re looking for a sort of Parisian-style Bridget Jones, you’ll love Je T’Aime… Maybe?” – Heather Stimmler-Hall, author of Naughty Paris: A Lady’s Guide to the Sexy City.
Je T’aime… Maybe? was also a finalist in the Best of Paris Contest in the Best Paris Book category!
Je T’Aime, Me Neither (book I)
Is Paris really the eternal City of Love? Dumped suddenly by her Parisian boyfriend, sultry expat Lily is left wondering if je t’aime still exists. Instead of crying into her glass of wine, she decides to heal her bruised ego and quash her romantic doubts with a carefree summer fling . . . or as the French call it: une aventure.
Supported by her faithful friends and trusty Saint Amour wine, Lily embarks on her presumably easy quest. Little does she know what—or whom—this adventure has in store! Rather than guide her into the arms of a perfect summer amoureux, the sexy streets of Paris lead her from one impossible candidate to another: disappearing foxy Frenchmen, unavailable Latino heartthrobs, overly-mysterious world travelers, mistress-hunting married men, and not-so-single amnesiacs—oh la la!
As her amorous mishaps accumulate, Lily gradually re-evaluates her strategy. But will her good intentions be enough to lead her to the right homme . . . one who might last out the summer—and maybe even beyond? Or will she continue to get embroiled in more mésaventure? This novelized memoir tells the tantalizingly true romantic odyssey of a 21st-Century young woman caught in the mire of desires—which is only intensified by the passion of Paris.
