Seraphine Dumont seems to have it all: she’s gorgeous, brilliant, and part of one of France’s most illustrious dynasties. But underneath the facade, Seraphine struggles to hold it all together. Besides grieving her adoptive father’s suspicious and sudden death, she also shares a tenuous role in the family business with Blaise, her in-name-only cousin. As tumultuous as their history is, he may be the only member of the deceptive Dumont family she can trust.

Seraphine is a temptation Blaise can’t resist. The torch he’s carried for years still burns. It’s his secret—a quiet obsession just out of reach. Until his brother demands that he spy on the increasingly cagey Seraphine, whom their father considers a dispensable Dumont outlier. But the more Blaise watches her and the closer he gets, the more he sees Seraphine may have every right to be suspicious. And she could be the next one in danger—from his own family.

As blood runs hot and hearts give in, Seraphine and Blaise have only each other. But can their love survive the secrets they’re about to uncover?

My Review…

The Dumonts – Book Two

Now this book can be totally read as a stand-alone, each story in this series can totally stand on its own.

Now that being said, I was lucky enough to read and review the first book in this series Discretion and when I did, I was so intrigued by Seraphine.  So when I found out the next book was her’s? I was excited!

This is Seraphine & Blaise’s story and what an adventure it is.  To read Seraphine’s backstory and how she became a Dumont is such a heartfelt part of the story.  You can see where her tenacity comes from and also her vulnerabilities.  She is strong because she has to be and finding justice for her father is what drives her.

Blaise is truly the black sheep of the family, not because he wants to be, but because of the twisted way his side of the Dumont family is.  He struggles to want to belong and yet he knows there is something very, very wrong with the new patriarch of the Dumont family.

As with all of Ms. Halle’s books, they are rich in visual words that make the reader feel like they are on the streets of Paris, the hot sun of Dubai or even Disneyland.  (Wait and read and you will see too!)

This story will truly show you what love really means, the chemistry between Seraphine and Blaise is beautiful to read and oh so smexy!  Get your hands on this story and find yourself being transported into a rich, dark and sensual world!
