#WIP it Wednesday: An Engagement in Paris

Welcome back to WIP it Wednesday! I've been pretty quiet as of that, and for that I apologize. Lots of life and family stuff getting in the way. But enough about that... on to the good news!

My latest erotic romance, An Engagement in Paris, is officially under contract at Loose Id! I'm already looking forward to whipping this WIP into shape with the help of my wonderful editor Serena. I'm sure she'll have lots to say about the book and the ways we can make it even better. 

Julien and Mandy were great characters that I had a lot of fun with. I've spoken a bit about them here before, when the book was tentatively titled, A Marietta Wedding. This is the sequel to An Affair Across Times Square, which is book one in an ongoing Marietta Hotels series. The series will feature new characters in each book, while also having cameo appearances from characters you've seen before. For more information on the Marietta Hotels series, check out the section on my website dedicated to it http://www.rachellnichole.com/Marietta-Hotels.html

Here's a bit more about the book: 

All Mandy Lachlan wanted was her own identity. All she had to do was run away to Paris to find it. Instead, she finds love, a baby, and a marriage proposal.
Julien Chevalier needs a family. Ever since his mother left when he was a kid, he’s been searching for the security and consistency that comes with marriage and babies. So when he falls for the young African American professor at the Sorbonne, he knows immediately this is the woman for him.
Julien needs to get married the same way Mandy needs her freedom. When they find themselves at the impasse of matrimony, one of them will have to compromise what they want and need. 
I really fell in love with Mandy and Julien. He falls hard and fast for Mandy, even though she kicks him out of class the first time they meet. As for Mandy, she's pretty hard-nosed and doesn't take crap from anybody. She's the sister of the hero of my first book, An Affair Across Times Square. Tyler and his love, Layla,  are also in this second book and it was great to see them on the page again. 

I was so excited to set a book in Paris, the city of love. I've been to Paris quite a few times, and I had a lot of fun using it as a backdrop for a romance. 

The anticipated release date for the book is June of this year, so stay tuned for updates in the coming months. I can't wait to see the cover for this one!
