Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
"The dialogue is charming, the characters likable. . . the sex sizzling, and the roller-coaster emotions. . . (will give fans an enjoyable ride)."(Publishers Weekly)
Jessi Rose Lucas
Paris Nights and Romance!

What is more romantic than the City of Lights, a glass of champagne, and a tall, dark, and handsome hunk? Well, there's more to Diana Palmer's intriguing and page-turning romance, Once in Paris, than that -- including the threat of a forced marriage, the love of a man for a young woman he cannot have, and the wealth and beauty that is Paris. This rich, lush novel of passion and riches will capture millions of hearts as young Brianne Martin learns the truth about love and life.

Brianne's life looks smooth and easy on the outside, but on the inside, she's weathered some rough storms for a young woman in her late teens. She adored her father, but within months after his death, Brianne's mother had married a fabulously wealthy and notoriously cold man. Her mother was always a bit of a social climber, but Brianne is horrified when her stepfather and mother suggest that Brianne go off to boarding school in France rather than live with them in their mansion on Nassau. But Brianne adapts to Paris and manages to take frequent trips to the Louvre. One afternoon, she begins talking with a man there who happens to be a business associate of her stepfather's. His name is L. Pierce Hutton, and he's still grieving for his beloved wife, who died a few years earlier.

Immediately, there's a connection between Brianne, 19, and Hutton, who has only a year or two before hitting 40. Soon, love blossoms between them, but Hutton draws back from this because he has no intention of falling in love with a woman half his age. But on a return trip to her parents' home in Nassau, Brianne's stepfather is soon pushing her toward a marriage of convenience with another associate of his, Phillipe Sabon. Sabon is Hutton's age, a Middle Easterner who is smooth as silk and as crafty as a fox -- but Brianne finds him cold. She is too deeply in love with Hutton to consider any other man, but Hutton has convinced himself he's not yet ready to love again.

As Brianne gets further embroiled in the plan to marry her off to a man she distrusts, her passion for Hutton grows stronger -- and Once in Paris reaches heights of dramatic tension and romance that few novels do. Plots are hatched and marriages are arranged, but true love burns hot for Brianne, who through it all remains courageous, smart, and mature. This is a simply written, gorgeous love story about the transcendence of the human heart. Do not miss this book.

    Amazing!!!

    This is the first Diana Palmer book I ever read, and I have become an instant fan! The story line is fast paced and the characters believable and lovable. It is also a great lead into the other stories in this line, but also stands on its own as a powerful, poignant story.

    More than just romance!

    Diana steps up a notch with this book. It's keeps you captivated through the entire book. There's suspense and mystery along with romance in this book. It's a great lead into Lord of the Desert and Paper Rose.

    Wonderful love story, very well written

    This is perhaps my favorite Diana Palmer. The characters are well developed, the dialog intelligent and witty and she didn't make the hero too overpowering or the heroine too weak. It was a perfect combination of hard and soft, love and heartache with a little mystery and intrigue thrown in. I highly recommend this book to all hopeless romantics like myself!
