To celebrate their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, Grace has planned the surprise of a lifetime for her husband—a romantic getaway to Paris. But she never expected he’d have a surprise of his own: he wants a divorce. Reeling from the shock but refusing to be broken, a devastated Grace makes the bold decision to go to Paris alone.

Audrey, a young woman from London, has left behind a heartache of her own when she arrives in Paris. A job in a bookshop is her ticket to freedom, but with no money and no knowledge of the French language, suddenly a summer spent wandering the cobbled streets alone seems much more likely…until she meets Grace, and everything changes.

Grace can’t believe how daring Audrey is. Audrey can’t believe how cautious newly single Grace is. Living in neighboring apartments above the bookshop, this unlikely pair offer each other just what they’ve both been missing. They came to Paris to find themselves, but finding this unbreakable friendship might be the best thing that’s ever happened to them…


Really great book! Two sides of life collide to show that friendship and loving support can make all the difference in the world as you travel the roads of life. I really enjoyed the emotional upheaval they each had to go through before settling in to what was meant to be. Highly recommend!

Grace Porter thought she’d be setting off on this magical trip to Paris with her husband of twenty-five years, but he decided to spring the news that he wants a divorce on her the night she presented him with the anniversary present. What’s a gal to do but go by herself? Alone in Paris sounds ideal at a difficult time like this until she’s living the loneliness of seeing the sights she meant to share with David.

Audrey Hackett would do anything to get out from under the weight of taking care of her alcoholic mother after graduation. She has been saving for years for this special trip, and though her mother throws up roadblock after roadblock, she needs this time. Even if she’s heading somewhere she can’t speak the language of with little money to her name.

An unlikely friendship strikes up between this woman on the verge of upheaval and this teen just coming into herself as they both live over top of a quaint bookshop. They support each other throughout their growing pains, and realize that life isn’t always handing you the thing you need, but you can achieve anything if you have the right support by your side.

Conquer. Control. Command. They have. They are. They will. They are the Wall Street Royals, men at the top of their game who are about to be mastered by the one thing they never counted on: love.

Don’t miss this seductively sexy new series by New York Times bestselling author Tara Sue Me.

FOK: (noun) /fok/: Abbreviation for Fill-or-Kill, a term used in securities trading. To fulfill an order completely and immediately, or to not do it at all.

For Lance Braxton, it’s more than a trading term, it’s his motto. Do it. Do it now and do it completely or don’t do it at all. Some might see it as reckless or foolhardy, but Lance doesn’t care. It’s worked for him so far. Why change a good thing?

As a favor for his sick grandmother, Lance sits in on auditions for the Juilliard scholarship named after his late mother. He expects to be bored out of his mind. He expects it to be a waste of a Saturday he could spend working. What he does not expect is Celeste Walsh.

She has the body of a super model, the looks of a storybook princess, and plays the violin with the passion of a zealous lover. The moment he sees her, he has to have her. Wants to control her. Needs to master her.

Celeste Walsh is running out of options. She’s been accepted into Juilliard to play the violin, but if she can’t get a scholarship, she’ll have to turn them down. And if she turns Juilliard down, she’ll have no choice but to give up the violin and work as a waitress at her family’s restaurant in Nowhereville, Virginia.

She’s not sure accepting the scholarship is the smartest thing to do. There’s something about the way Lance looks at her that suggests he has more than arias and scherzos in mind. However, when she inadvertently witnesses an intimate moment between him and a date, she realizes being under his control holds more appeal than she thought.

Lance warns her he’s an all or nothing guy and if she steps into his bedroom, he’s not holding back. It’s not until her foot crosses the threshold that she understands just how serious he is. But even if she comes to trust him with her pleasure, does she dare trust him with her heart?


A brand new series from Tara Sue Me is sure to entice! For fans of her previous Submissives series, there’s a new crop of dominants on the loose, and they’re pretty tempting! We meet Lance and his business partners Isaac & Ty and enjoy Lance finding his match in this first book, with the other guys coming up soon. Good characters, a believable plot and lots of sexy goodness! I enjoyed their story.

Lance Braxton has no idea when he agrees to fill in for his grandmother at the auditions for the scholarship that she set up in his mother’s name that he will meet the woman of his dreams. He’s not looking for anything more than the life he enjoys leading, but Celeste draws him to her. He would give anything to have her … and he will.

Violinist Celeste Walsh would give just about anything to be able to accept the Juilliard position she has been offered, but funds aren’t going to be there unless she gets this scholarship. She’d really hate to have to return home to Virginia and be stuck working in the family diner for the rest of her life. When opportunity comes knocking, she agrees to accept it … although she’s not sure she’s going to be able to resist the sexy temptation of the benefactor’s grandson!
