CHOSEN AS THE FRENCHMAN’S BRIDE is a fabulous debut novel by author Abby Green. It’s a prime example of passion like no other……and from the moment Jane and Xavier literally bump into each other the air around them sizzles. Abby’s strong alpha Xavier is everything a Presents novel should portray…… power, wealth, strength, good looks, passion, tenderness all of it.

Abby Green’s characters simply reach out and grab you. If your reading experience is anything like mine you won’t be able to put this book down. Throughout this entire story, I felt Jane’s pain. She was so overcome with lust, joy and completely swept away…. I wept! Theirs is such a stormy journey in finding love and trust; at times it will break your heart. And so to Abby Green, congratulations for such a beautiful debut, CHOSEN AS THE FRENCHMAN’S BRIDE is one I will long remember!
