Publication date: December 6th 2016
Genres: New Adult, Romance
The daughter of a renown media mogul, Poppy Koslowski has her life turned upside down overnight when her father is indicted for a massive fraud that leads to the loss of her family’s fortune. In the wake of the scandal, Poppy moves to Paris at the behest of her aunt, the Countess Domel, who, unbeknownst to Poppy, intends to find a wealthy husband for her niece in order to ensure her future. Poppy, however, has her own dreams of finishing school and realizing her goal of becoming an award-winning journalist. When she meets Henri Olin, the passionate and seductive illegitimate son of one of France’s most powerful politicians, his political and social ideology introduces Poppy to a world very different from her own. Yet, Poppy ultimately learns that everything comes at a price, even love. After suffering a devastating loss, Poppy finds herself alone and virtually penniless, and is forced to make her way back to America to piece together the remnants of her life in New York City. There, she rediscovers her passion once again, only to be confronted with yet another life choice, one that will forever shape her destiny.


Honestly I cannot say enough about this author - I am so fortunate that she stumbled onto my blog and emailed us about her work. I have fallen in love with her and all her characters. I find myself hanging on every word she writes , even that nasty c word she uses that makes me blush STILL !! Since the start of these connected series I have thought very little of Poppy - I mean she treated her kids horrible , her and her husband had no sense of family or love AND I felt she was always trying to sabotage anything good that was going on. I knew she would have a good story BUT I had no clue how much I would fall in love with her !! I almost feel the need to go back to the start and read all the books again so I can see Poppy through fresh eyes !! Her journey was never easy , heartbreaking at times and the love she discovered with that one guy , the guy we already knew of , WOW I was shocked about how deep their connection was and I am so excited to see how their journey continues and also to see if Poppy ever rights things she regrets. We follow her from Chicago with her parents to France with her aunt and uncle. We see her family fall apart , we see the way she was made to think and we watch her get her heart broken over and over only for her to get back up and go for more. Henri , Paul , G and her father - Poppy had such unique and amazing connections , the chemistry with some was off the charts and her love for others was touching. I honestly didn't know she had it in her to love. Now I understand her A LOT. Thanks for that !!

Author Bio:
Vivian Winslow was born and raised in Southern California. Before becoming a writer, she made a career out of moving around the world every couple of years thanks to her husband’s job and her incurable wanderlust. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and two elementary school age children, and is grateful to finally have a place to call home for more than two years.
New York is the perfect city to indulge her love of fashion, the arts and especially food. If she’s not at home writing or running around the city with her kids, you’ll most likely find her eating at the newest restaurant in her beloved Lower East Side or having a cocktail at her favorite bar in Alphabet City. That said, she’s still a California girl at heart and would gladly trade in her heels for a pair of flip-flops to catch a sunset on the beach.
