‘You’re breaking up with me!’
He was silent.
‘Under the Eiffel-fucking-Tower!’ I screamed.
Twenty-five-year-old Claire Shorten had looked forward to spending a romantic weekend in Paris for as long as she could remember, and now it was here – three blissful days of strolling through cobbled streets arm-in-arm with her beloved, eating copious amounts of baked goods and soaking up the culture through each and every pore of her body. Well, at least, that was how she’d pictured it . . .
Even after her boyfriend dumps her rather unceremoniously in the most romantic place on earth, Claire is determined not to give up on her dream altogether – with or without a boyfriend. She finds herself a job in the kitchen of a small hotel; Michelin-starred it most certainly is not, but somehow Claire makes a place for herself amidst the dirty dishes and the foreign misfits who run the place.
When the restaurant attracts the attention of the enigmatic – if not slightly terrifying – tycoon Louis Delarue, and Claire manages to survive his high-powered business luncheon from hell, she knows that she can survive anything, surely. But all bets are off when Louis makes a game-changing decision: he’s coming back for a second course . . .

Go ahead and book your getaway to Paris and pack this romantic tale for your reading pleasure. Paris Lights will seduce you.
When Claire’s boyfriend breaks up with her under the Eiffel Tower during her Paris Holiday of a Lifetime her life is turned upside down. To bring her out of a deep depression, she decides to stay in Paris at the hotel they shared. During her stay, the hotel becomes the subject of a reality TV show to decide if the hotel should remain open with improvements or close it under the guidance of uber cocky well known chef and TV star Louis Delarue aka The Devil.
Claire starts a new life in Paris, including having a love affair with the sexy Frenchmen. She finds herself helping the staff to complete a renovation in need of a lot of work. As walls are torn down and fresh paint applied, Claire finds herself being renewed as well amid the colorful hotel employees.
Paris Lights is about the good from refusing to give up on life and love. The storytelling is perfectly pace and the romance is not rushed. The City of Lights provide the perfect backdrop. The descriptions are incredibly detailed. You will want to fly away and live there forever.
Any reader who has any sadness in their life and needs a new start will appreciate this love story. The romance between Louis and Claire is downright dreamy, sweet and perfect. Paris Lights will leave you in a loving and romantic mood. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. I can’t wait to visit the other cities through the eyes of C. J. Duggan.
