Abby Green’s Bought for the Frenchman’s Pleasure will probably be on my top ten lists for 2008. I absolutely loved this book and from start to finish I could not put it down.

The story begins in New York but also includes Ireland, India and France and takes the reader on a worldwide journey with this couple, Sorcha Murphy and Romain deValois., Their eyes meet across the room and they can’t look away, that’s the way it is from the first moment they see each other and that’s the way it is throughout the entire book. Tension, anger, sexual attraction, desire, all of it rolled into one. When Sorcha is asked to become the model to represent Romain’s company and ad campaign she refuses the chance of a lifetime. Why? She remembers what he did to her years ago, remembered and wanted no part of him now!

Years ago their paths crossed but in not a nice way. Sorcha was accused of being a drug user, her reputation was completely destroyed by an interview Romain gave to the press. It was his Aunt who came to Sorcha’s rescue, gave her another chance and is now her employer.

Romain has learned the hard way not to trust, not to trust love, his stepbrother, his deceased mother, no one. At one time in his life they have all let him down. Being a “user” is disgusting to him and he still suspects Sorcha is a user but cannot control his attraction to her. He’s decided she is what he needs for his campaign and for his pleasure. It’s like he’s obsessed and he does let up on this woman and time and time again, circumstances all point to the fact that Sorcha should not be trusted!

Sorcha is “fiery” in everyway…..she’s an incredible character, she lives up to her red hair and Irish heritage, she’s loyal to her friends, passionate about drugs addiction and actually sets up a youth outreach centre in Dublin. She’s also insanely in love with the man who would toss her in the trash, would use her until there was nothing left of her soul. This story will wrench your heart out……..their passion leaps off the pages, their attraction for each other, , their love/hate feelings………their story sizzles!

As for Romain, at first I wanted to sock him, kick him until I learned how emotionally he was hurt by his first love, his mother and his stepbrother. This is one steamy and sexy man who can’t get Sorcha out of his system. But when all falls, he falls hard, I promise.

If you’re a fan of “Top Model” or fashion week in NYC or the fashion runway in Paris or Milan….it’s the glamour, the electricity the models generate, it’s the intrigue of the entire fashion industry from the designers, to the models, to those wealthy enough to afford the luxury of designer high fashion. It’s fabulous!

Book Description:
His price? She’ll become his mistress!

As a top model, Sorcha Murphy can command a high price. But her fame hides a terrible secret from her past – one she has tried to put behind her, but which is about to return to haunt her…

So when Romain discovers that Sorcha hasn’t changed her ways, he decides to change the deal…her pay-cheque will be recouped in the bedroom – as his model mistress!
