Warning: 18+++ 

Lost In France is an erotic contemporary romance novel set in Paris, the city of Love and Romance. 

Offered a thrilling new job, Rebecca flees her tormented past, putting as much distance between herself and her ex-lover, wanting a fresh beginning in a foreign city. 

On the airplane she meets Alain, a dangerously handsome Frenchman, winemaker and jetsetter, who doesn’t waste time introducing her to the Mile High Club and seducing her with his French accent and charming ass-slapping ways. Sizzling chemistry with her sexy tour guide leads to a panty melting romance on the Cote de Azure and Alain’s chateau in Bordeaux. Can Rebecca find the love she is yearning for with her Frenchman? 

Alain is perfect. Or so it seems. 
What is his secret? 
What is he hiding? 

Rebecca loves her new job. It’s just her alpha male boss, super arrogant CEO, Maxwell Grant, she dislikes. And Maxwell f*cking Grant doesn't like her entanglement with the Frenchman. 
No, he wants Rebecca to himself... 

Is Rebecca jumping from one hotter-than-hell fire into another? And will she finally find what she is looking for? 

The semi-cliffhanger will leave you breathless, screaming for book 2. Guaranteed. 

If you haven’t read Jani Kay yet, WRITE HER NAME DOWN.  I guarantee you will NOT want to miss out on the sexy, arrogant, magnetic, captivating, and uber alpha male characters she has created in Lost in France.  

Holy hell was I lost IN THIS BOOK!!!  When I opened the first page, I really had no clue what to expect.  I knew nothing except that I love love love the cover.  Yes, I read the blurb, but it’s still hard to tell if it’s going to be winner or a loser.  Never in a million years did I think it was going to be this AWESOME and CAPTIVATING!!

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away.”

When Rebecca leaves Australia and heads to France in order to escape her past, the last thing she ever expected was to find not one, but two men that are desperate to have her.  On the plane, Rebecca meets Alain the suave and extremely gorgeous Frenchman.  (All I have to say is that I have never flown overseas in first class, but evidently I am seriously missing out on First Class hospitality!)  Once she sets foot on French soil, Rebecca meets her new boss, Maxwell Grant.   

The two men could not be more opposite.  Alain is a gentleman.  Maxwell is, well………. an arrogant ass.  Both are ridiculously alluring in their own way.  Alain is sexy and romantic.  Maxwell is magnetic and rough.  Alain is from aristocratic bloodlines.  Maxwell is an American.  But both agree that what they want is Rebecca, and they have no intention of letting the other win.

The chase that ensues to win Rebecca is breathtaking to say the least.  Rebecca is whisked from Paris New to York to Versailles, from chateau to hotel, from Porsche to Maserati to motorcycle.  Alain is charming and sexy.  Maxwell is arrogant and smooth. And, I don’t envy the choice Rebecca has to make.  Yes, Alain seems perfect, but even though Maxwell is a certifiable A-S-S there’s more to him than you see on the surface.  Things happen and circumstances change, but will Rebecca ever find a man to call “mine”?

Jani has created a different kind of alpha male that I am falling madly in love with – both Alain and Maxwell.  I can’t quite put my finger on what makes them different from the other rich, gorgeous, sexy as hell, dominating men.  Whatever it is, Jani has discovered the secret.  I’m not sure if it’s because it’s set in France or because Jani is a great writer (I think it’s the latter), but THE SEX IS HOT!  She sure knows how to build anticipation.  I seriously could not turn the pages fast enough.  The story is just as captivating as the men.  And, Jani’s writing style just adds to the awesomeness of it all.

My first big surprise happened when I started Chapter 3.  It is the ONE thing a book can have that will make me fall in love with it.  You’re probably wondering what it is…. dual POV!!!  I seriously love dual POV stories.  It ranks up there with hot, well-written sex scenes (which this has too, so double points for Jani!).  It’s not a full dual POV book, but what I love is that we get Alain’s POV when it’s needed.  This really gives the reader a whole new perspective on the story.  

On a side note………. I’ve been thinking…. it’s called the Firebird Trilogy, so what’s the deal with the name????  Most series names have meaning so naturally (maybe not for you, but for me, yes) I was curious.  Firebird is briefly mentioned in the book but not explained so now I’m very intrigued. And because of the person that mentioned the word, I’m dying even more to know the significance.  

Lost in France isn’t Jani’s first book.  Surprised?  I was.  I had no idea.  I have no clue how I missed this bit of information.  But you bet I’m going to grab her first book, Open Your Eyes.  

I. NEED. BOOK 2. NOW.  I can’t wait to see what happens next.  And, it doesn’t look like I’ll need to wait that long because January 2014 appears to be the magical date.

4 - 4.5 STARS

Jani has been married for a long time to a special man, and her two children and their partners are the sunshine in her life. She is a voracious reader and would spend her last dollar on a book - always fascinated that for the mere price of a book, she can escape her world for a while and see through someone else's eyes.

Besides reading, her favorite 'thing' is traveling - she has traveled the world, learning about the ways people live and has come to the realization that no matter where we live, we all ultimately want the same things. Her hobby - Scrapbooking - keeps her up till way after midnight and her usual subjects are her family and her travels.

Ever since she can remember, Jani wanted to write stories about people, about their lives and loves. Relationships and Happiness - arguably the most difficult things to master in life and yet exactly what everyone ultimately desires (in her humble opinion).

She would love to hear from you, please email her at janikaybooks@gmail.com
