The Chocolate Thief by Laura Florand

Do you like sizzling romances of opposites attract? How about when Paris and chocolate are involved?  Then try The Chocolate Thief by Laura Florand.

Cade Corey is THE name in American chocolate, literally. Corey chocolate bars are enjoyed across the country, around the campfire as s’mores, or in the vending machine at the office. Cade has grander dreams for Corey chocolate, though. She wants to compete with European chocolate companies and create a more artisinal chocolate. Her only problem, none of the artisan chocolate companies want to do business with her.

Undaunted, she comes to Paris with high hopes of finding a partner. Enter artisan chocolate maker, Sylvian Marquis. The attraction between Cade and Sylvian is palpable from the first interaction. He wants nothing to do with Cade’s visions of a partnership to produce a gourmet Corey chocolate line. Cade is stubborn and unwilling to give up on her dreams. She rents the vacant apartment above Sylvian Marquis’ shop.

Cade gets creative when Marquis refuses to discuss a business partnership. Upon learning that his shop is hosting a seminar on chocolate making, Cade bribes a student so she can take her place. Passions and tempers really begin to fly as Sylvian Marquis chooses to lead the seminar himself. The seminar does not go well for Cade. To retaliate she breaks into Sylvian’s shop after hours. And then the story of The Chocolate Thief gets out when picked up by a Parisian food blogger. I really enjoyed spending time with both Cade and Sylvian and found myself rooting for them to live happily ever after.
