His eyes burned through her, opening her, reading her soul.







I have been a die-hard fan of Sylvain Reynard ever since I read his ”Gabriel’s Inferno” series. I think I lost my mind just a wee bit over that series. It had such a strong impact on me that I was completely obsessed with it. What I know from having read several of Sylvain’s books is that he will always take us on exquisite journeys to some of the most exotic and romantic destination

Acacia Santos works as a concierge at a luxury hotel in Paris. Educated at the Sorbonne and able to speak multiple languages fluently, Acacia takes pride in her position yet her past dictates her career choices and the need to remain fairly unnoticed. It isn’t until a high-profile guest at the hotel causes Acacia to act on instinct which leads to unexpected results.

“Our scars don’t define us,” she said simply.”

Nicholas Cassirer is a man of means and is driven by his need to obtain

I'm sad to say, in the long run, I wasn't impressed with The Man In The Black Suit.

The blurb says it all. And by that, I mean really—everything interesting about this book lies in the blurb.
The synopsis with its promise of an intrigue set in Paris and revolving around arts piqued my curiosity. I’m equally curious and wary of any book set in my city, and although described accurately, it felt too much like the Paris only tourists want to read about. Personally, I’m over it but I can understand th

Acacia is a 35-year-old Brazialian woman working as a concierge in Paris. She's been in the city ever since she studied art at the Sorbonne. But she doesn't work in that field - we don't yet know why. And there's also something that happened to her in Amman years ago, something dangerous, that might come calling again.

Now she works at the Hotel Victoire where THE MAN IN THE BLACK SUIT is a very valued guest.

Sylvain Reynard is one of my favorite romance authors of all time and it's an automatic read for me whenever he publishes a new book. His romance novels are intricately written and always deliver a passionate, heartfelt and swoon-worthy romance. The Man in the Black Suit was his latest romantic suspense standalone novel and it's one of my highly anticipated releases last year but I didn't have a chance to read it. Once again, he didn't disappoint me but I have little issues with it.

Acacia is hiding a secret and is always looking over her shoulder. She is careful and calculating. While working as a hotel concierge, she comes across a wealthy man who is charming and good looking. He is intriguing and appears to be hiding a secret, too.

I knew this book would be awesome, but my expectations were blown away by reality! Is there a comparison term for awesome? If not, I will create it for “The Man in the Black Suit” by Sylvain Reynard.

The Man in the Black Suit is a contemporary romantic suspense novel written by Sylvain Reynard. It's full of intrigue, mistrust, interesting identities, culture, violent art thieves, action/suspense, and a lovely romance. Written as a standalone novel (rare for Reynard), there is enough world building to launch a series of companion novels...but sometimes it's nice to have an open and closed reading experience. Well-done Sylvain Reynard!

You know you’ve been well cared for by your favorite author when your first reaction to the announcement of a new book is something like, “What do you mean it’s a stand alone?”

This was my initial dilemma with “The Man in the Black Suit” by Sylvain Reynard. Over the years, I’ve become invested in the literary worlds created by SR. I immerse myself in the settings with wanderlust. I’m challenged to learn more about art, literature, and religion. I fall in love with the most amazing fictional men (

Sylvain Reynard is one of my must read authors. It has been a while since we have had a new book, however it is worth every second of the wait.

We are again swept away in an epic story of love, mystery and intrigue.

I know that I'm going to be in a minority with this review, but personally I'm disappointed with the story.
The story is supossed to be a romantic suspense;but it seemed to me like a criminal story with some sex scenes. So, I did not find chemistry between Nicholas and Acacio, the story turned from stolen painted masterpieces in one chapter, to the the holy war in the next one,(that actually happens in reality and this was the last nail in the coffin).

Sylvain Reynard latest novel is a foray into romantic suspense titled, The Man in the Black Suit and it is an adventure you do not want to miss.

Nicolas Cassirer has a routine of checking to the Hotel Victoire every three months under an assumed name and with eye candy on his arm. Coincidence or perhaps fate, has him checking in alone and he is left to deal with a new concierge. Acacia Santos matches Nicolas in wit and earns his respect quickly

”’Keep your eyes on my accounts. I’m sure you won’t find them repulsive.’”

A super wealthy mysterious guest checks into the hotel where Acacia is a concierge. He’s prickly. There’s banter. I’m happy happy. Then the story falls apart.

There’s a situation with some stolen art. An awful boss. A trashed apartment. Fleeing the country. Acacia picks the oddest things to obsess about - getting a job on her own, not accepting money, getting ba

"I'm no longer the prey. I'm the predator."

For those who’ve heard of Sylvain Reynard books but didn’t want to feel obligated to read a trilogy, this book is perfect for you. The Man in the Black Suit was pure SR. Romance and intrigue galore. I can’t explain it, but there’s just something about SR’s writing that instantly connects me. I am never bored, nor do I skim. I read slowly to absorb every beautiful word. Perhaps it's the scenery or even the romantic words? Perhaps it’s all the art? I’m

This may just be me, i could not read on after the 60%-ish mark..once i found out her secret.. The first 60% was REALLY good! I loved the mystery surrounding the hero and I loved how intensely he felt for the heroine. BUT, the heroine had a pretty odd secret, one i did not care for. It became a religious issue and i just skimmed through till the end.
