This book is an incredible escape and sexual fantasy. I'm accustomed to reading romances where I feel like an outsider observing two people in love, but not with this story. Joanna's attraction for Lucien and the conflict that raged inside of her felt so real, it pulled me in to her role and I found myself remembering times when I was crazy in love years ago. Lucien LaPlante is truly a delicious creation that no woman should miss out on. The author gave me crystal-clear images of him as super hot-looking, masculine and exotic. Lucien and Joanna felt like real, multidimensional characters that I could relate to. Joanna's constant internal conflicts made her feel very real. The other people on the tour with all their quirks and tendencies to gossip, made the story even more fun.
Her inner debate becomes more complicated when she meets the tour guide, Lucien. Luc heats her blood, makes her wish for things she knows she should never allow her mind to indulge in. Things that would set tongues wagging and her reputation in ruins. She resists, but how can she possibly stay away from Luc when the Black Virgin of Rocamadour is influencing the primal core of her feminine power?
Serena Janes sweeps you away as she pulls you into the tour with her characters. Her attention to detail is highlighted by vivid scenery. Her knowledge of the local food, wine and culture, comprehensive, allowing you to experience the story as if you are an actual member of the tour. I loved the back and forth between her characters, the depth of their development was not rushed, and it was great to see their personalities reveal themselves throughout the book. Jo's inner conflict made her character so real, while Luc...oh boy. Every woman deserves a man like Luc *winks*.
This was a wonderful start to a very promising trilogy for Serena Janes, and the teasing glimpse at the end of Cult of the Black Virgin, guarentees that I will be visiting Jo and Luc's continued story in the second book.
Jo Clifford takes us with her on a tour of the Dordogne region of South-West France describing architecture, caves, scenic splendor. The reader shares delicious meals paired with fine wines. But wait-that is not all. Inspired by the Black Virgin of Rocamadour (an actual artifact), Jo reluctantly sheds her conventions and responds to her overwhelming attraction to the archaeologist/tour guide, Luc. Their resulting passionate affair leads to sensual encounters so sensitively and beautifully described, the heat of those moments draws in the reader. The two lovers share their bodies with great passion and skill. Can French lovers really be that wonderful in bed? Read this one to find out. More from this author please!
