Release Blitz: The Kiss Plot by Nicole French

Jane and Eric de Vries.
Often enemies. Sometimes lovers.
Husband and wife. Or are we?

I wore the dress. We said the vows.
And somehow it became more than just a stunt to collect his billions.
A promise bound by love, not hate.
Until he humiliated me in front of all of New York and disappeared.

Now my errant husband has returned, and it's like I never existed.
Except when he looks at me like he wants to rip my dress from my body.
Something's holding him back. And I won't rest until I discover its cause.

See, this wild heir is about to find out: karma's a fickle mistress.
My weapons? Batting eyelashes, high heels, and that red lipstick he can't resist.
I'll break down his mask, little by little. And then I'll make him pay for what he did.
I just need to keep my heart in check while I do it.

If I thought The Hate Vow had twists and turns, well this book has even more and it's filled with more drama, more emotion and still lots of steam.  Eric and Jane's relationship isn't quite what most would find normal - there's a lot of push and pull there, more so than most, but there's also a depth of connection that just works for them and goes to show how much they really work together.  

The Kiss Plot grabbed my attention even further and entrenched me into the world in which Jane and Eric are involved, from the good to the bad and the even worse, I went through a gamut of emotions with these characters and was left anxious for more.  Questions were answered, but more formed in my mind and I found myself not knowing what was going to come next.  

Nicole French has woven the threads of this story so well together that even when I wanted to hit someone or yell, I still couldn't walk away because of a desperate need to see things play out as they will. I couldn't wait to see how things worked out between Jane and Eric and if they could overcome everything thrown their way and work together to move forward.  I need to know the rest of the story, to see things through and get all of the answers.  

If you are looking for a story with suspense, drama, love, hate, secrets and more - look no further than this series, but be warned they'll suck you in and leave you desperate for more. 

Eric de Vries.
Looks like millions. Worth billions.
A body like the David with a mind to match.
Unfortunately for this wayward heir, to keep his money, he needs a wife.
And of all the women in the world, he chooses me.

Too bad I've hated him for five years, since he took all my tears and tossed me away. The guy slept his way through half of New England and discarded women like hotel toiletries.
Been there. Done that.

Still...what would you do for twenty million dollars?
Would you wear the dress?
Fake a smile for the man who broke your heart?
Or would you run far, far away?

Yeah, that's what I thought.
I'll see you at the church.



I've long been a fan of the fake engagement/marriage/ Marriage of convenience trope. This book had extra drama in addition to that which made it all the more enticing to me. 

Eric de Vries finds himself in quite the situation when he returns home after many years away to the family he left behind, for good reasons. He shouldn't be shocked at the reason for his return but he is. To say Eric's family relationships are complicated is putting it very lightly - but digging in to the depths of those complications really drew me in further to the man. 

Jane Lefferts has her own complicated history with Eric and finds herself on the other end of a shocking proposal from him. I really loved Jane - from moment one when we meet her on the page, she called to me as a woman who did her own thing and though she had worries, she didn't let them overrun her life on the daily. 

I adore the interactions between Jane, the banter, the "hate", and everything in between just built up the story and kept my attention. I couldn't wait to see what would come their way next and how they'd handle it. 

There's more to this story than a rich boy doing his family's bidding and a woman accepting a bargain for all the wrong (or are they right) reasons. There's secrets and pain and loss and so much more twisted into a story that will keep you hooked

Nicole French is an East Coast/West Coast hybrid creature, Springsteen fanatic, hopeless romantic, and total bookworm.

When not writing fiction or teaching writing classes, she is hanging out with her family, playing soccer with the rest of the thirty-plus crowd in Seattle, or going on dates with her husband.

In her spare time, she likes to go running with her dog, Greta, or practice the piano, but never seems to do either one of these things as much as she should.
