BOUGHT FOR THE FRENCHMAN'S PLEASURE
It's taken years for Sorcha Murphy to battle tabloid stories about her supposedly sordid past, including drugs, to become one of the world's top models. But some still view her unfavorably. Romain de Valois, the head of the fashion world's most powerful business conglomerate, initially turns her down for his new advertising campaign because of what he thinks he knows about her past. Neither is ready for the intense attraction they feel. But just as their restrained passion threatens to explode, Romain thinks he's caught Sorcha with drugs. Abby Green's Bought for the Frenchman's Pleasure (4.5) is a poignant, intensely emotional story about two people who have been emotionally scarred battling through a fortress of defenses in order to open up their hearts.
