Description

Laura Florand, bestselling author of The Chocolate Kiss, combines lush description, smart dialogue, provocative sensuality, and the perfume of love itself in A Crown of Bitter Orange, an irresistibly lush novel that is an ode to the scents and pleasures of the south of France and the beauty of falling in love.

Childhood friends. Tristan Rosier might have asked Malorie Monsard to marry him when he was five years old, but things had only gone downhill from there. She’d spent the rest of their lives ignoring him, abandoning him, and destroying his perfumes. Now she was back, to wreak who knew what havoc on his life.

Lifelong enemies. Tristan might choose to dismiss the generations-long enmity between their two families, but Malorie didn’t have that privilege. Like all the other privileges wealthy, gorgeous Tristan took for granted that she couldn’t. But if she was going to restore her family company to glory, she might just need his help.

Or the perfect match? They’d known each other all their lives. Could these childhood friends and lifelong enemies ever uncross their stars and find happily ever after?

Customer Reviews

A Treat for All Five Senses

I eagerly anticipate each new Laura Florand release, and I've been especially curious to know more about the youngest cousin of the Rosier clan. As with all of this author's books, even taking the romance completely out of the picture, this story is full of beautiful writing that engages all five senses. Getting into Tristan's head as he plots out new fragrances inspired by everything around him is enchanting. The France these characters live in seems both a vibrant reality and a bit of a magical fairy land. Of course, Laura Florand has yet to write a romance that doesn't make me simultaneously swoon and melt. I absolutely love how Tristan's creative nature and Malorie's more practical side mesh together in a lovely romance. It's a little enemies-to-lovers, a little reconnection-romance, and a little something unique all on its own.

If you've enjoyed previous stories by this author, you won't be disappointed by this newest release. I would recommend starting at the beginning of this series for maximum enjoyment, but I think there is enough background provided that this could also stand on its own.
