Book 2 in The French Summer Novel Series, a romantic saga set in the magnificent Basque country.
Three women, three passions…It’s summer once more in Biarritz and Caroline is trying out her matchmaking skills. She’s invited best friend Jill to come for a holiday and meet a certain man she has in mind. Caroline herself found true love with Edward in Villa Julia’s magical setting one year ago, so who knows what might happen when Jill O’Toole meets Antoine Arantxa?
The table is set, the candles are lit, the guests arrive. Two seconds is all it takes. Stand back for the instant sizzle, the red-hot flambé, the spicy chilli samba! Our man is a sexy Basque, as hot as the famous local peppers, while Jill, with her red Irish hair and voluptuous curves, is no shrinking violet. Plus her hormones haven’t had a night out for six months.
As playtime starts at the Villa there’s fun in store, not a cloud on the horizon! Wicked Sister Annabel and her pointy hat are miles away. Annabel did her best to ruin Caroline and Edward’s romance last summer, but she’s got a new life now in Germany, caught up in a mad social whirl with her husband’s colleagues and their naughty, bored wives. Places to go, things to do! Good job she has a Nanny to look after the baby. Right now, there’s a big party coming up at a country chateau, hosted by an exciting new member of the group. He’s a rich, sexy Italian called Claudio, with a passion for collecting things, mainly fast cars and beautiful women. He’s a man who’s used to getting what he wants, and he’s set his sights on a new conquest…

Laurette was born in Brontëland, West Yorkshire, but fell in love with France aged 13 when her host family sent her to the village boulangerie to buy the morning baguette in her pyjamas and dressing gown. Graduating with a degree in English Literature from the University of Leicester, she began a teaching career in the UK and the US before moving to Toulouse, SW France, where she worked with adults whose motivations for studying the language of Shakespeare ranged from passing advanced exams to launching rockets. She met a lot of people, learnt many new things (though not how to launch a rocket), had a great time, wrote a best-selling textbook, and fell ever more deeply in love with la belle France. In 2011, moving from the bright lights of Toulouse to a small hamlet in Cathar country, she began her dream of writing a romantic family saga set in her adoptive country. The four books are published as the French Summer Novels Series: Biarritz Passion, Hot Basque, The Passage of Desire and Biarritz-Villa Julia.
When she’s not writing, Laurette usually has her nose in either a book or a lavender bush. She’s proud to have created a Mediterranean garden from a hill of brambles, now home to hundreds of bees, butterflies and the neighbour’s cat, in which she and her partner can listen to the nightingale and watch the sun go down.
