As 2020 comes to an end, I hope we all can reflect on something positive that happened this year. It has been a rough road to travel on for many, but I have faith that something wonderful awaits around the corner. In the meantime and between time, treat yourself to a sultry holiday romance.
On Christmas Eve, Tranell Hawkins finds herself in one of the world’s most romantic countries, slaving over work. Seeking a little respite, she steps away from her demanding job and visits a local restaurant. That’s when she captures the attention of a very attractive Frenchman.
The second Stephan lays eyes on her, he has to have her. Despite his reservations, he approaches her. He lures her in with promises of a passionate rendezvous, but he has a secret that may ruin the night he has planned for her.
Fernand, a celebrity chef, has been in a relationship with Stephan for the last couple of years. When Stephan comes home with a gorgeous woman he met at a restaurant, Fernand becomes furious. But after getting a dose of her witty, charming personality, he finds himself captivated with her.
Will Tranell shy away from a night guaranteed to be filled with forbidden pleasures, or allow Stephan and Fernand to take her on a journey she will never forget?

A teaser from Simone for your reading pleasure…
A little over two months ago, she hijacked my heart. I’d only been in New York for a week. I was in the process acclimating to the metro transportation system when a loud female voice jolted me.
“Yo, what the fuck are you looking at?” she said, her raw tone laced with that New Yorker’s accent.
She garnered the attention of everyone on that car.
I looked up from my phone to find a stunning girl glaring at some dude standing across from her.
“I’m looking at you, mami,” he announced with a smarmy grin.
“I suggest you avert your eyes before I pluck them outta your fuckin’ head, hombre.”
He laughed, which sounded forced. “You ain’t much to look at anyway, uppity black puta.” Hanging on to the railing, he made his way to my end of the car. He may have had the last word, but the scowl on his face indicated that his ego had taken a hit.
After that, I found myself helplessly obsessed with her.
Simone typically sat on the same bench every day, and every day I moved a little closer to her. Took me two months to muster up the courage to sit right across from her. Wonder how long it would take to occupy the same bench as her. I watched her through the throng of bodies swaying with the motion of the car, like I did every morning. I tried many times, but I couldn’t tear my eyes away. I never could. I was blatantly staring again.
A shudder coasted across the walls of the vehicle, making it lurch.
That’s when she looked up. She glanced to the left then the right and forward, where our gazes clashed.
Oh God, oh God… Oh God! The furious knocking beneath my chest increased. A bout of heat spread throughout my entire body.
Please don’t curse me out. I can’t help but stare.

This Passionate Thing…
“Deeper…” A chesty chuckle rumbled from him. “Why haven’t you told Wes about us?”
Her next breath got caught in her throat. She stared into his bright eyes, unsure on what to say.
“Is it because he’s your lover too?”
Uneasiness swarmed her, chasing her bliss away. She pulled back from him and maneuvered to the edge of the bed.
Surprisingly, he let her move.
She drew the sheet around her body and gazed out the window. The beautiful city of Atlanta and its sparkling nightlights gazed back at her. “You knew?”
“I’ve known from the day we met.”
She’d lied to him. She told him that she and Wes were just really good friends, but apparently, her false words were only convincing to her own ears. “How?”
“The way you two gaze at each other when you think no one is watching…I only pretended to be oblivious to it because I didn’t want to disrespect what you two had, but the day we kissed, all of that changed. I would’ve said something earlier. Although, I didn’t think I was in a position to do so.” That would explain why he needed to know where they stood relationship-wise.
He fell silent, and so did she.
