Oh. My. God. Ms. St. Claire has done it again. And even better than Tropical Getaway if you ask me. Because the heroine was actually someone I could like from the first page, and the hero was tall, dark, and handsome (no blond Viking this time)...Add to that explosive chemistry (still between the hero and heroine), a double-theft, a murderous villain, a dash across the French countryside, betrayal from withing, smokin' sex, and the mystery revolving around the hero, his true identity, and his da ...more

I just love Paris and almost any book with the Eiffel Tower on the front, I'll read. If the book is my favorite genre, romantic-suspense, it's guaranteed. My love of all things French and French history in particular makes this book a treasure. Lots of moving pieces, characters who aren't who they are supposed to be and hard to deduce motives and just some of the elements that make this book a joy to read.

Mix together suspense, romance, smoking hot chemistry and the incomparable award winning author Roxanne St. Claire and you're guaranteed a "thrill ride" that will keep you guessing to the very end, enough "twists" to make you buckle up, and so much heat you'd better have the fans set on high!

Having just read French Twist for a second time, I can tell you without hesitation it was just as much fun the second time as the first! St. Claire takes us into the lush wine country of Burgundy and art hi

Okay then.. an American art-expert managing her first major art exhibit (around Madame Pompadour) meets a French 'security expert' in the Palace of Versailles. What's not to love?

Add on a set of fake vases, that the security expert is an ex-thief (shades of certain other books I've read and enjoyed), a mysterious death or two... and they go to a vineyard... a French vineyard to drink exquisite wine in a cellar. I'm sure I'm not the only one to slip into fantasies about it.

This reminded me of a c

Liked some of her other books better. Jeanine is managing an art exhibit and Luc is assigned as security to the exhibit. However, Luc is an ex-thief who now needs to capture a thief after Jeanine's art exhibit. When the art is stolen Jeanine leaves with Luc to help locate the precious vases. The part of this story that is weak is when Luc goes back to his old friend's house who he finds out was murdered. His friend's wife acts suspicious but Jeanine never says anything to Luc and Luc never notic ...more

The best book by St. Claire I've ever read. It was a captivating story filled with intrigue, suspense, crime, and romance set in France. The book was captivating and the romance parts were riveting; it was a book I couldn't put down until I finished reading it. I recommend it for those who like romantic suspense. 4/5 stars.

Not an art history fan, so aside from the two leads, I didn't really care for the other characters. Like great, art thievery. I'm really excited to care about art history. /end sarcasm/ Pretty sure it'd be more interesting if you like art history and France, but I'm too neutral for both things.

And I've been skimming past sex scenes lately, soooo... =/

Great chemistry between the characters..wasn't too much/just right. It was an interesting story. Really liked how the story began and followed thru with the idea. I have always liked her writting style. I liked the story. It didn't rock my world but I did like it.

I devoured this book. A new favorite. I have an affinity for heists, spies, thieves, slightly-antihero heroes, France, and French accents. This book gave me all of it. And apparently now I also have a thing for men that braid hair. This was perfect escapism for me!

What a suspenseful storyline. There were so many twists and turns, such a fun book!
Roxanne St. Claire's Romantic Suspense is the very best there is.

I gave this three stars for books of its kind - it was entertaining if limited by its reliance upon some usual tropes.

I don’t know about you, but when I check out an author's bio, it’s usually because I’ve read a book I liked and wondered about the person behind it. Let's skip the formal bio and I'll give you the inside scoop on who Roxanne St. Claire really is.
