About Kiss Me in Paris

Kiss Me in Paris by Karpov Kinrade

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

Full length novel: 87, 000 words

No one knows my secret. Ever since high school, ever since I started living in fear, no one has known the true me. But then I met him, and I couldn't hide anymore. He became my hero, saving me from the villain of my past. He became my friend, his smile a blanket of warmth. And he scared me. Because he, this beautiful man, he might become more. Then he'd see the real me, and I couldn't let that happen. My name is Winter, and what I desire most I can't have. 

Flashes of the night I was drugged rush back to me. His strong arms carrying me through the streets of Paris. The feel of his heart beating as my head rested against his chest. The soft press of his lips against my forehead when he thought I was asleep. Oh shit. I'm falling for the cowboy. Cade. But we can't be anything more. He has his own secrets. His own darkness he keeps hidden, like the letter he keeps with him everywhere he goes. The letter he refuses to open.

Kiss Me in Paris is a standalone novel in the Kiss Me Series. Travel the world with the Deveaux sisters as they find love, and trouble, in all the right places.

Kiss Me in Paris is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Kobo!

Reviews are in for Kiss Me in Paris

5 stars "I experienced every emotion as each character felt it. Every tear, every laugh, all of the fear, anxiety, and stress, I experienced every last bit of it. And even though this is a romance, there are tears. I cried more times reading Kiss Me in Paris than I did watching Nicholas Sparks' The Last Song. Kiss Me in Paris left me hollow when I finally finished it. I feel as if a piece of me was left in the words as I read <this is where the book STEALS SOULS>. And for once, I have a book to call my favorite." ~Merumei on Amazon

5 stars "A timeless and beautiful love story that will sweep you off your feet, but it's also much more than that<We're not making this part up. These are real reviews.>" ~Amy Conley, Amazon

5 stars "Beautifully drawn characters and stunning pallets that bring you in to Paris itself. <Where else are you going to get a trip to Paris for $2.99. WHERE?>" ~Stormy, Amazon

Some favorite quotes from Kiss Me in Paris

        •     "One star breaks off from the others, shooting across the sky, a bright light trailing behind it, and I finally understand why people wish on dying stars. Because something always has to die for life to give birth to a new dream. "

        •     "Paris is pregnant with layers of history, colored with the ink of artists who dared to dream of a world only they could see."

        •     "It's like I'm giving birth from my mouth." <You'll understand this when you get to chapter 5. Then you'll pee your pants laughing.>

        •     "It's the nature of being human that, in our own blindness, we lash out and blind others."

        •     "I think of Winter, of her smile, her eyes, her arms wrapped around me, and I know where home is. It's wherever she is, and right now she is too far away. My heart has escaped my body and is walking Paris without me."

        •     "She opened herself to him, and, in that moment, she opened herself to the world. Let it hurt her. Let it burn her veins, boil her blood and scorch her heart. For where there could be pain, there could be pleasure and love. She would be cold no longer. She would melt the hearts of others, and in turn, they would melt hers. She would feel the full spectrum of emotions and cry. She would be human. And she would be happy."


Le Sigh.

That pretty much sums up how I feel about this book every time I think of it.

Le Sigh. It was a fantastic read from beginning to end! It's one of those reads that latches on to you and refuses to let go, and no matter how many times you say "just on more page", you keep going until there are no more pages to turn.

Le Sigh. It had such amazing, endearing characters.

Le Sigh. It was filled with beautiful romance, steamy passion, bellyaching humor, and heart breaking pain and anguish.

Le Sigh. Cade Savage...need I say more :)

What started out as a fun, adventure-filled trip to Paris, soon turned into an emotional roller coaster ride, with amazing highs and crushing lows.

This story took me from crying with laughter one second to crying with the gut-wrenching heartache I felt for the characters, as they each faced their demons, the next.

I immediately fell for Cade. With his charming, chivalrous ways, and seriously, who can resist a sexy cowboy! I loved how protective and caring he was with Stevie. Le Sigh. Family life was strained in the Savage household and I had to wonder what the real story was behind the tension.

Winter was a real sweet character. I loved her loyalty to Jenifer. Even when Jeni messed up, over and over again, Winter was always there for her, ready to pick up the pieces if need be. Of course, the two of them shared a strong bond, and if they didn't before, they certainly did after indulging in Rocco's famous pastries!

I really liked that Cade and Winter's relationship developed over time and only progressed to the next level when they really knew and trusted each other. Their love felt pure and real. Although they each had their secrets, as their love developed, so they found the strength to confide in each other. I have to admit that I was a little shocked by Winter's confession. I knew there was something up with Rodney, and from her aversion to physical contact it wasn't difficult to figure out what had happened in the past, but never had I thought it was as terrible as it turned out to be.

Winter's spirit and passion for life, even through the horror, was inspiring. Even though she saw herself as weak, she was the total opposite. Physically, emotionally and mentally, she proved time and again that her past couldn't break her, and Cade's love only lifted her higher. In many ways they were very similar - two broken souls looking for the light in the darkness, looking to prove to the world that their dreams were more than just fantasy.

This story was well paced, allowing the reader to get a real sense of everything Paris had to offer, good and bad. At times it felt like I was really there, exploring the city of love along with Winter and Cade. If you weren't in love with the city before, you surely will be after reading this book.

This story offered me everything I've come to expect from a great romance read. It was spectacular!

It gets...
