Paris Love Match is now available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and soon iTunes.
Getting a taxi in Paris can be hell.
Piers Chapman expected a boring business trip to Paris.
What he didn’t expect was to fight over a cab with a beautiful girl.
After a bad meeting, Sidney Roux just wanted to hail a cab, go home, and have a glass of wine.
She didn’t expect to fight over a cab with some pompous British tourist.
Neither of them expected another man to jump in their cab.
Or to be involved in a gun fight.
Or a car chase through the streets of Paris.
Or for the man to die.
But they’re thrust together when the mob demands they return what the dead man stole.
Will Piers and Sidney work together?
Will they find what he had stolen?
Will they stay alive?
And will they do the last thing they expected?
Will they fall in love?
Paris Love Match is a caper in the style of the accidental tourist, which all occurs in a single day in Paris.
The hero is Piers Chapman, an engineering geek whose jeans are too short, whose mother phones him too often, and who is in Paris to update the software in one of his company’s cranes.
The heroine is Sidney Roux, a worldly-wise, drop-dead beauty who is tired of falling for good-looking men who treat her badly. Mind you, she carries a little bit of an attitude and something of a secret, but she’s lived in a world that never gave her anything, and she’s learned to look after herself first.
When the sale of a painting between a ruthless dictator and a murderous mobster turns into a raging gun battle with the police in tow, Piers and Sidney get caught up and wanted by all sides.
If they’re going to stay alive, they’re going to have to put aside their fears and prejudices, and work together. It’s not an easy thing for either of them to do.
But if they can, they might just find more than stolen goods …
Paris Love Match? Game on, Nigel.
Yes, I have come out of my self-imposed social-media-free writing cave this week to hoot and holler and help you celebrate this profound achievement. WOOT!
LOL, Sherry. Thanks, and sorry for disturbing you in your cave!
Woo hoo! Buying it TODAY! Huge congrats, Nigel. I love the premise, and can’t wait to enjoy it.
Thanks, August 🙂
You might get a laugh when you read it. There’s a character with a very similar name to you, but it’s a he, spelled with an “e”, and (sorry) he dies early on! Please don’t take it personally!
Woohoo! I’m rushing off to buy it now – I can hardly wait!
P.S. Finished it already and loved it! My 5-star review is up on Amazon.
Now, welcome to the curse/blessing of the author: Your loyal readers want to know when the next one’s coming. Hurry up! 🙂
P.P.S. I notice it’s listed under “Nonfiction” on Amazon… is Piers your cover identity? 😉
Diane! Finished already? Boy, I’m going to have to make the next one longer 🙂
Thanks very much for the review and kind words – my first!
Did I ever tell you how much I like you? Oh, wait, yes I did. Well, it’s true 🙂
Did I ever tell you how much I like you? Really. Very much. And I’ve still got two PS to go 🙂
Congrats, Nigel!! I am so happy for you!!
Thanks for all the help over the years it’s taken, Tiff. Hopefully the next will be quicker!
Congrats, Nigel. Hope it sells well.
I have my fingers crossed. And toes and just about everything else!
I’m so excited for you, Nigel!!! And I can’t wait to read your book. 🙂 See you in a few days at DFWCon. (I’ve got a big hug with your name on it.)
Looking forward to the weekend at the conference!
Congratulations!!! I know much blood, sweat and tears must have gone into this opus. Can’t wait to read it!
Blood? Sweat? Tears? Ahhhh, you’ve heard about the ritual sacrifices that just had to be made 🙂
