The European Flings Quartet, Book 4
New title, new cover. Original concept!
Once upon a time, three best friends journeyed to three separate foreign capitals in search of love. Now, the friends are getting ready to reunite for a wedding filled with surprises, sex, and seduction.
Matt Donovan and Anton Marcel have made the ultimate commitment: wishing to share their lives forever. Freddie Markson and Santo Mancusi have been growing apart ever since Santo’s movie career has taken off. Jake Westbury remains in search of love, going from one meaningless relationship to another. A joyous celebration will at last reunite the three friends, but not before a series of events threaten to undo their hard-fought happiness. With the aid of the Abbott siblings, all of whom have impacted the friends’ lives, the drama reaches its crescendo at a fabulous villa in the south of France.
From Paris to Los Angeles, New York to Tuscany, London to Nice, brimming with hot hunks and even hotter sex, the adventures of Matt, Freddie, and Jake continue in this fourth volume of the European Flings Quartet.
Will the wedding go off without a hitch, or will one last shocking truth jeopardize the future?
