Summertime in Paris, nineteen sixty-nine. Men are on the moon, and American tourist Aurora Masters’ head is in the stars. The sensual sculptor she watches, though a timeworn studio window, is her favorite French piece of art. Mona Lisa who?
Gaston Lyon lives up to his name. He is a lion of a Frenchman, strong and confident, with a shoulder length mane. The woman on the bench across the street has come to look for three days. It is time to introduce himself to the one who calls without words.
Two strangers and one relentless attraction. It is the Age of Aquarius. Time and distance are no match for chemistry and destiny.
Point of view:
1st person. Alternating between Aurora & Gaston’s perspectives.
This is a short story prequel to the Lyons series by Leslie Pike. I didn’t know this was about the parents so it took me a bit to realize the book was set in the 60s. (Totally my fault for not reading the blurb! 🤦🏻♀️)
I quickly acclimated and enjoyed the setting. At just under an hour it’s a sweet and steamy look at how Aurora & Gaston met.
I’m ready for Parish & Scarlett’s story, The Beach in Winter.
Maxine Mitchell & Joe Arden were wonderful here.
