Vive la Laura Florand! --Cassandra King La Vie en Chocolat Dominique Richard's reputation says it all--wild past, wilder flavors, black leather and smoldering heat. Jaime Corey is hardly the first woman to be drawn to all that dark, delicious danger. Sitting in Dom's opulent chocolaterie in Paris day after day, she lets his decadent creations restore her weary body and spirit, understanding that the man himself is entirely beyond her grasp. Until he touches her. . . Chocolate, Dominique understands--from the biting tang of lime-caramel to the most complex infusions of jasmine, lemon-thyme, and cayenne. But this shy, freckled American who sits alone in his salon, quietly sampling his exquisite confections as if she can't get enough of them--enough of him--is something else. She has secrets too, he can tell. Of course if she really knew him, she would run. Yet once you have spotted your heart's true craving, simply looking is no longer enough. . . Praise for Laura Florand and her novels "I adored this story. . .Paris, chocolate, and romance, all in one hilarious package." --New York Times bestelling author Eloisa James "Readers will devour this frothy, fun novel."--Booklist "Both sensual and sweet. . .a story that melts in your mouth!" --USA Today bestselling author Christie Ridgway

About the Novel: The Chocolate Touch is a re-imagined story of a young boy who turns everything he eats into chocolate. John Midas loves candy, especially chocolate. He loves it so much, that he refuses to eat anything else. His parents try to get him to eat more healthy food, but to no avail. One day, John finds a mysterious coin on his way to a friend's house. He decides to spend this coin on a box of chocolate from a store he's never seen before. To his disappointment, the box contains a single ball of chocolate. He eats it anyway, enjoying every last piece. The next day, John wakes to discover that everything he eats turns to chocolate.
