In this Stuart tale, Chloe is an American in Paris. She is living on her shoestring salary of translating children's books, refusing to ask for money from her parents to get by.

Chloe's roommate wants to dash off with her latest boyfriend for the weekend. Only problem, she has accept a job to be translator for a group of businessmen for the weekend. She hits on the idea of sending Chloe in her place.
We quickly learn this was a bad idea. That is the one sticking point of the whole tale. Chloe is spirited to a secluded Chateau, and upon arrival the man hosting it want to send Chloe back. Chloe is getting bad vibes about the whole situation, but instead of accepting him sending her back she convinces him to let her stay. We are told Chloe can use the money and that she is restless looking for something to jazz up her life. Still, those reasons seem just a tad week when she is having misgivings about this set up.Read more ›
Chloe Underwood is an American in Paris, living in a tiny apartment and making a living by translating children's books into French. One day, while translating a book about a ferret in a tutu, she ironically observes that she does not have enough sex and violence in her life....and (boy, oh, boy!) she *should* have been careful what she wished for! Almost immediately, she is convinced by her flighty roommate to take her place as translator for a group of businessmen at a weekend conference outside of Paris. Chloe needs the money, and she will get to wear her roommate's chic clothes, so she agrees.
Arriving at the remote chateau for the conference, Chloe is introduced to the participants, including the dangerously attractive and seductive Bastien Toussaint. Unfortunately for Chloe, she is much sharper and more observant than her roommate, and it does not take her very long to figure out that the "entrepreneurs" are really illegal arms dealers. A little bit of unwise snooping around, and Chloe has gotten herself into some *serious* trouble and finds herself on the run with Bastien from people who want her dead.
Chloe is an engaging heroine--young, confused by Bastien's attentions (and particularly by her own reactions to him), disastrously inquisitive, brave and fairly resourceful. She does some really stupid things, but she is a likable and believable heroine. Bastien is one of Anne Stuart's deliciously dangerous bad boy heroes.Read more ›
Chloe is a young, fairly naive translator living in Paris to escape her wealthy family and their expectations back home in North Carolina. When her ditzy, gold digging roommate arranges for Chloe to take her place translating for a business conference, she finds herself in an isolated, fortified chateau wondering what the heck she's gotten herself into. Then she meets a mysterious and very sexy man and just knows that she is in serious danger. And she is.
Bastien Toussaint is a covert agent for a shadowy organization trying to infiltrate an illegal arms dealing cartel. Supposedly he works for the good guys but lately he's been wondering about that. Bastien is not exactly a nice guy and he does whatever it takes to complete his mission. If that means killing someone, so be it. If it takes sleeping with a woman to get info, no problem. When he meets Chloe he wonders if she is truly what she seems or something more dangerous. She's either really good at what she does or pathetically inept! He decides to get close to her to find out and so they have an encounter that shakes them both. He decides she truly is what she appears - an innocent young woman in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Normally he'd leave her to her fate, but there is something about Chloe and he finds himself her self-appointed bodyguard as they go on the run from the cartel. Now if he can just get her back to the States and out of his life they'll both be better off.Read more ›
