Stealing back her own necklace was easy. Keeping it is an entirely different problem.

Evie Madison's life changed irrevocably the night her necklace was brutally taken.

Ten years later, the opportunity to hold it again once more is too good to miss.

But agreeing to pose as the fiancée of the man she vowed to hate forever just to keep the ruby pendant might not be her wisest decision.

When fate places the woman he once loved back in his arms, Raphael Dauphin doesn't hesitate to take advantage. The last time he laid eyes on Evie, she'd been wrapped around his old adversary.

Now he has her exactly where he wants—embroiled in his lies and back in his bed.

Retribution has never felt so good...

Until Evie's past catches up.

Set in the glamorous South of France, French Retribution is an action-packed, second chance romance featuring a sinfully sexy hero, a fake fiancée and a genuine HEA.

Suspenseful Second Chance Romance with European Settings French Retribution is a beautifully written romantic suspense. While a review like this requires at least a little bit of summary, I feel loath to give too much away because the author does a fantastic job of revealing information slowly over the course of the book. This is a second chance at romance story. Two former lovers accidentally meet on the street of a small Spanish town. It's been ten years since I've seen each other. Each thinks the other had abandoned them on a fateful night back then, but this is true for neither of them. So no, both have anger and resentment, but even after all this time, they have definite chemistry and attraction to each other. Along with this romantic plot, there is also a suspense plot. Evie, the heroine, has taken back a necklace that was stolen from her ten years ago, and somehow someone has figured out that she may be the culprit, placing her life in danger. Will Evie and Raph gain a true understanding of their split ten years ago? How will these former lovers react to their current circumstances? Can they trust each other, which is so important because of the danger that Evie is in? Who is after Evie? Who originally stole it from her ten years ago? As someone who took French in both high school and college, I adored that the author sprinkled in lots of French words and phrases. This gave the book a real flavor that sets it apart from similar books in the contemporary romance genre. The author writes with a heightened, but accessible, use of language that is just lovely to read. She chose great settings for this book, Spain and coastal France, and through her use of language, we get a strong sense of them. The chemistry of the couple was palpable. The steamy scenes in the book were appropriate and showed the emotions of the moment beautifully. The book appeared to be well edited, as it was delightfully free of errors in punctuation, grammar, and usage. If you enjoy romance with a little bit of mystery and an appropriate amount of steaminess, you might enjoy this book.

The third book in the French Romance series a short well-written story that held my interest throughout. Raphael Dauphin and Evie Madison’s story has suspense, evil, drama, danger,a villain closer than Evie knows, and romance. I enjoyed reading.

The book is a good romantic suspense read. The book is the third story in the series but can be read as a standalone read. The story has a good story line. The characters are good, and they have good chemistry. The story is an enjoyable second chance romance read. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
