Book Blurb:

When he melts her frozen heart, she decides to remain in Paris and live with him, sharing his atelier as she designs and creates chic couture.

My Review:


Will the flames of passion ignite Ella’s soul or fan her jealousy? In Flames of Flamenco, Jennifer Ivy Walker writes a fiery hot romance that will light your heart on fire. The descriptive narration and setting will plunge you into the heart of Montmarte, France, where art and dance are expressions of passion and love. The characters are so vibrant, they leap from the page. The romance is a feast for the senses. Flames of Flamenco is a seductive, passionate romance you’ll lose yourself in.


Let’s start with the characters. Ella is a woman ready for a love affair in the heart of Paris. When she meets Jean-Luc, she enters a world fueled by passion. I liked her immensely. She’s beautiful both inside and out. She’s smart and takes life as it comes. She fights for what she wants, no matter the cost. Jean-Luc is the embodiment of allure and seduction. He’s very Parisian and only reveals what he wants to. Both are rocked to the core by their instant attraction and toe-curling passion. Is it lasting love? You’ll have to read it to find out for yourself.


I know I’ve said this a hundred times, but Jennifer Ivy Walker’s writing is pure artistry. Her writing is poetic in nature but not flowery. Each scene is described with emotion and clarity, so the reader is transported. Never have I been so emotionally invested in a story, and it’s a wondrous experience.


If you’re looking to be seduced by the power of love through words, pick up Flames of Flamenco. I wasn’t able to stop reading and neither will you.
