New York was supposed to be a different life for Alix. She’d left her childhood growing up on a farm in Brittany far behind her. In just six years she managed to turn an art history degree from the University of Rennes into a Creative Director position at a hot boutique agency in Manhattan. So why was she so unhappy?

   Robert Walden was in New York to finalize his ad agency pick for WaldenStock. In one month his company was going public. It meant a loss of control for him but great rewards for the people that made his company great: his employees. He had just one more potential agency to meet and he could fly back home to Austin.

   Alix found it difficult to get through the presentation. Something about the client made her uneasy. There was nothing outward about it, just an intensity she didn’t expect from American men anymore. She was relieved when it was over, only to find out she’d been invited to the corporate dinner… ...by the client.

   A company dinner, a proposal, and a chance to start something that will change both of their lives, if Alix has the courage to accept Robert’s invitation. Will her excitement lead her upstairs to an open-ended adventure, or will depression and shame win out again?

I was not sure what to expect. This was a new to me author. I really enjoyed this book though . There was plenty of steamy sex scenes in this book. I would have read it all in one sitting had I not had to do the wife thing (boy this wife thing gets in the way of my reading lol). I’m torn between giving 3 or 4 stars for the Hirondelle because although I enjoyed the writing, story, and steamy eroticism for a contemporary romance, I disliked the characters (I don't know why I just could not connect with them) they are far from perfect (I really am not sure why it's not because they are not perfect because I love when characters have flaws I just really did not connect), but I happily kept turning the pages because the story had me so immersed I just wanted more. Since I really enjoyed the story I’m settling with 4 stars.
