Blurb from Love Redesigned: Love isn’t always a cakewalk. Give American cake artist Genevieve Haywood a picture of anything, and she’ll turn it into a sweet and decadent creation. She’s not going to let hard work or competition stop her from opening her dream business. But when she’s hired as the cake artist for her cousin’s wedding in France, she never expected to run into the French fashion designer who broke her heart fifteen years ago.

Roman Duchaine is done with living life in the fast lane. Tired of being in the haute couture spotlight, he’s moved back to the small French village where he was born and raised.  Roman’s ready to settle down and have a family until the lost love of his life arrives for his cousin’s wedding. Seeing her reminds him just how devastating falling in love can be.

Their fragile truce is meant to last through the wedding, yet every second together makes their attraction and long-buried feelings undeniable. But old habits and hurts die hard, and while Roman is ready to weave their lives together, Genevieve can't afford to lose herself in his shadow.


Excerpt From Love Redesigned: 
“I’m sorry. I do not have the best reputation when it comes to women. I admit I have dated many women over the years, but it is because I was looking for a special woman.” Roman cupped her chin in his big hand and tilted her face up to his. “I was looking for you,” he said, and kissed her.

Hi Sloane! Welcome to the Plotting Princesses and wearing the Tiara!

I was fortunate to critique part of this ( before health issues ) and I so enjoyed it. I have to get it to see the end!

Now, I'm still waiting for the Irish stories...hint, hint.

I'm wishing you many sales, GF

Sylvia, still working on the 2nd one, but it's coming along nicely. My hero is a hot mess, and my heroine is feeling her way along with the relationship....er, not THAT way! :-)

Phyllis, so glad you enjoyed what you had read! I love this story, and my hero and heroine.

Irish stories will be coming...for now my head is in France. C'est si bon!

Dear Plotting Princesses,
My apologies for the late replies - I had responded earlier today, but when I looked again, there were no replies! Gremlins, I say. Or those dastardly dust bunnies.

Thank you all for hosting me today, ladies. I've loved wearing a tiara for the day!

Good morning, Sloane

Sorry I didn't make it over to the blog yesterday. Day job was killing me. LOL

Love the cover and can't wait to jump into this one. Just the little excerpt drew me in. Congratulations on your first release and may it be just the first of many, many more.
