Love is an illusion...
Or so it seems to Madeleine.

But his toughest fight of all is convincing Madeleine that happily ever after exists, even when his own family is testament that doesn't.
Set in the beautiful French countryside, Gathering Storm is a standalone, suspenseful romance featuring a sinfully sexy hero, dark family secrets, and a heart-racing conclusion.
