“Why do I need to go to Paris?” Kathryn asked, rubbing her temple with more force. “I’ll be looking over my shoulder for him at every turn. What if I bump into him? What happens then?”
“You mean, how do you research the perfect place to find love when love finds you?” Paul folded his muscled arms over his chest and leaned back in his seat. “You could even have a true Parisian show you around all the hot spots. Why is that so bad, Kittykat?”
“Because Marko is not an option. He’s loaded, cultured, and out of my league.” Even worse, he’d insist on introducing her to his family like he had that Christmas years ago. “I’ve worked real hard to establish myself as a competent professional. It would kill me to have the mighty Renards look down on me.”
“Why would they look down on you?” Paul asked. “You’re being ridiculous.”
“You could never understand, Paul. You’re rich and entitled, cut from the same cloth as Marko. I’m a girl from Long Island that had to take online classes for eighteen months to finish my last semester and get my degree, all while keeping my dad’s aluminum-siding business afloat to save my childhood home. Could you picture a woman in Marko’s family with chipped nail polish and callouses on her palms?”
“Marko stayed by your side. You were the one that ran away from him.” Paul’s jaw was set, but his gaze was full of compassion. He’d seen what her father’s passing had done to her and her mother, and he’d also been there for her in that difficult time. She hadn’t turned away from him. The difference was that Paul was her friend. Marko was her soul mate.
GENRE: Erotic Romance
One day to see the sights.
One night to change your life. .
Magazine writer Kathryn Taylor is traveling from New York to Paris for work. But the flirtatious Frenchman she left long ago is waiting at the airport–and he wants to play. . .
No one can guide Kat through the sensual city’s delights like Marko Renard. He let her get away once, and now he’s determined to make her stay–even if he has to tie her down. He will wrap her in cashmere, tease her tongue with chocolate, and take her to the peak of the Eiffel Tower . . . But can he convince the bohemian beauty she belongs with him, in his luxuriously decadent world? In business, he’s the master–but it’s Kat’s body and soul he truly longs to rule. He has just enough time to show her the pleasures of the boulevards, the boulangeries–and the bedroom. To finally get her to just say oui, he’ll have to seize the day–and the night. . .
5 **** – Steamy story in romantic Paris
26 Hours in Paris has everything I look for in an erotica read: great, sexy bedroom scenes (a little on the kinky side); believable characters, and a good storyline. I mean, setting it in Paris also didn’t hurt. After all, Paris is the world’s finest destination for romance, right? Toss in a gorgeous leading man and a smart heroine and voilà – you’ve got yourself a great story.
Except, it’s not that easy. Adding up ingredients not always guarantee the expected outcome. I know what I’m talking about since I’m an avid reader. On the other hand, as a writer of erotica myself, I empathize with the difficulty of finding the right tone and the best balance so that a story delivers what the audience expects while stays within the realms of possibility and reality.
26 Hours in Paris was the first book I read by Demi Alex; however, I’m sure many other will follow as she skillfully builds a believable story around realistic characters. Marko is a sensitive guy without being obnoxiously sweet and Kat is a strong woman still fighting her inner demons. Believe me – the stronger the woman, the more vicious her inner monsters. And most often than not, they exist only in her head created by herself, and seem harmless to other people. I guess that’s one of the reasons I related to Kat so much. LOL In fact, I fell in love with Marko and Kat from the get-go and rooted for their HEA.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a hot read to match the summer heat.

Demi Alex writes steamy romances, blending emotional fulfillments of the heart and carnal desires in her work. Born in Athens, Greece, and raised in her own version of a big fat Greek life in New York, Demi was infected with book and travel bugs early, and currently admits the only therapy for this condition is to combine the two in fictional stories that allow her characters to let loose and experience all they crave. She attended SUNY at Stony Brook, and after changing her major numerous times, graduated with a degree in Public Policy and International Studies. Her characters are loosely based on people she encounters while she travels or during the time she spends matching homes to owners as a Realtor. She simply has a passion for matchmaking that can’t be put to rest.
