For the first time, a love story goes beyond national boundaries. When Jean Leclerc (the jilted, handsome French tycoon) arrives on Indian soil to construct his glass float, the last thing he expects is to be slapped, scratched, bitten, and kissed—all in one evening. Imagine his shock when he comes face-to-face with a beautiful, ferocious Bengal cat. Angry and aroused, Jean forgets all the reasons why he should not get involved with another woman, especially one on the point of marriage. Katrina Santiago, the fiery twenty-nine-year-old Indian virgin has no time for affairs—at least that’s what she thinks until she faces God’s gift to women, Jean, the drop-dead gorgeous hunk who stirs her up with a glance. Bold and outrageous, he brings out a personality in her she never thought exists: she wants to do things—wicked things—with him. But JLC is looking for a diversion while Katrina is looking for . . . well, she isn’t sure anymore. The French Encounter takes you on a fun-loving ride through the trials and tribulations of an Indo-French relationship. It shows how two societies can blend and live harmoniously if the individuals are willing to sacrifice their inner convictions. But it also tells of the stubbornness of two strong personalities, refusing to compromise despite their intense feelings for each other.
