The North American paperback edition of PARIS was published April , 2014.  If you are thinking of a visit to Paris, I personally love September and October.

Paris : City of love. City of revolution.  This thrilling and romantic story opens in La Belle Époque, the golden, hedonistic age of peace and joie de vivre. Moving back and forth in time across centuries, the story unfolds through intimate and vivid tales of self-discovery, divided loyalty, passion, and long-kept secrets both fictional and true, set against the backdrop of the city - from the summit of Montmartre to the gothic towers of Notre Dame to the grand boulevards of Saint-Germain, from the medieval world of saints and scholars to the modern French ideals of liberté, égalité, fraternité.   Read More and Purchase





Did You Know?
Hitler gave orders to destroy Paris on the eve of the allied liberation in 1944, but the Nazi General in control of Paris, General Dietrich von Choltitz, intentionally ignored the order. In his 1951 memoir, Choltitz claimed that he defied the order because of his love for the city and because he realized by then that Hitler had gone insane. Choltitz has since been described by many as the “Saviour of Paris.”
