Title: Flames of Flamenco


Author: Jennifer Ivy Walker


Genre: steamy contemporary romance novella


Book Blurb:  


In Montmartre, the bohemian heart of Paris, Ella meets an intriguing artist who sketches portraits on the trendy Place du Tertre and dances flamenco at the local tablao. As Jean-Luc introduces her to the secret delights of the City of Light, Ella becomes his Muse, the passion they share inspiring and igniting his art and his dance.


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.

But a beautiful, beguiling curator invites Jean-Luc to display his paintings as the featured artist in the upcoming L’Art de la Danse exhibit, and the lure of international fame threatens his future with Ella.

Will jealousy and greed extinguish their passion, or will the flames of flamenco endure?




Brilliant purple beams focused on him in the spotlight, while the musicians and other dancers lingered in darkened shadows.


 He was dressed entirely in black, his long dark hair cascading loosely over his shoulders, hanging down his expansive back. Form-fitting pants clung to his long legs, emphasizing the bulging muscles in his powerful thighs. An open jacket with long tuxedo tails revealed his bare, sculpted torso and rippled abdomen, where the familiar tattoo of the flamenco dancer twirled sensuously up his left side.


 Ella’s breath hitched as she beheld him. He was magnificent. Intoxicating. Mesmerizing.


 As three guitarists began playing, the purple lights illuminated them, and Jean-Luc moved in rhythm with the slow, plaintive melody. He extended his arms and raised them high overhead, lifting the sides of his jacket like windswept wings of an eagle about to take flight. Undulating his hips as his arms joined together over his head, he lifted an impassioned face to the sky, the melancholy notes of the music evoking the suffering of his soul.


 He clenched a fist high above his upturned face, pulling his hand down slowly, opening his fingers to trace his forehead, bearded chin, and elongated, exposed neck. He stopped the descent of his hand from the sky to form a fist clenched protectively over his vulnerable heart. Wrapping the sides of his jacket to envelop his torso, like a wounded hawk tucking its wings, Jean-Luc raised an anguished face to the crowd.


 And penetrated Ella with piercing, impassioned eyes.
