    The Chocolate ThiefThe Chocolate Thief by Laura Florand

  • Synopsis:

     

    Paris

    Breathtakingly beautiful, the City of Light seduces the senses, its cobbled streets thrumming with possibility. For American Cade Corey, it’s a dream come true, if only she can get one infuriating French chocolatier to sign on the dotted line. . .

    Chocolate

    Melting, yielding yet firm, exotic, its secrets are intimately known to Sylvain Marquis. But turn them over to a brash American waving a fistful of dollars? Jamais. Not unless there’s something much more delectable on the table. . .

    Stolen Pleasure

    Whether confections taken from a locked shop or kisses in the dark, is there anything sweeter?

    Praise for Laura Florand and her novels

    Teaser from 1% in Kindle Edition

    Sylvain Marquis knew what women desired: chocolate. And so he had learned as he grew into adulthood how to master a woman’s desire.

Outside, November had turned the Paris streets cold and grey.  But in his laboratoire, he brought his chocolate to the temperature he wanted it, smooth and luxurious.  He spread it out across his marble counter.  With a deft flick of his hand, he stroked it up and spread it out again, glowing and dark.

In the shop, an elegant blonde whose every movement spoke of wealth and privilage was buying a box of his chocolates, unable to resist bitting into one before she left the shop.  He could see her through the glass window that allowed visitors a glimpse of the way artisan chocolate was made.  He saw her perfect teeth sink into the thumbnail-sized chocolate and knew exactly the way the shell yielded with a delicate resistance, the way the ganache inside melted on her tongue, the pleasure that ran through her body.

Well, that teaser really makes me want to keep reading.  I hope that you will share your teaser with me today in the comments.
