April Lily Heise left her native Canada for Paris in 2000. Ever since, she's been trying-quite unsuccessfully-to stay out of romantic trouble. She's managed to remain in her heart city, subsisting on a variety of jobs, mainly in teaching and tourism. Writing or translating on the side, she has contributed to various travel publications including Frommer's Paris and France guides and the Conde Nast Daily Traveler Blog. She has translated large sections of two books by noted French intellectual Jacques Attali, and wrote two business English language guides. The latter having nothing to do with her current book . . . other than naughtily inspiring one of its chapters.
Je T'Aime, Me Neitherby April Lily Heise
Supported by her faithful friends
Is Paris really the eternal City of Love? Dumped suddenly by her Parisian boyfriend, sultry expat Lily is left wondering if je t'aime still exists. Instead of crying into her glass of wine, she decides to heal her bruised ego and quash her romantic doubts with a carefree summer fling . . . or as the French call it: une aventure.
Supported by her faithful friends and trusty Saint Amour wine, Lily embarks on her presumably easy quest. Little does she know what-or whom-this adventure has in store! Rather than guide her into the arms of a perfect summer amoureux, the sexy streets of Paris lead her from one impossible candidate to another: disappearing foxy Frenchmen, unavailable Latino heartthrobs, overly-mysterious world travelers, mistress-hunting married men, and not-so-single amnesiacs-oh la la!
As her amorous mishaps accumulate, Lily gradually re-evaluates her strategy. But will her good intentions be enough to lead her to the right homme . . . one who might last out the summer-and maybe even beyond? Or will she continue to get embroiled in more mésaventure? This novelized memoir tells the tantalizingly true romantic odyssey of a 21st-Century young woman caught in the mire of desires-which is only intensified by the passion of Paris.
