A Valentine’s Kiss is author Lucie Hart’s debut fiction novel, and is certainly poised to be the chick-pick this Valentine’s Day.

The lead character is Imogen who is going to meet the man of her dreams on Valentine’s Day. If only she can discover who he is!

At a gloriously over-the-top house party in the balmy South of France, the British trainee chef finds herself playing blind man’s buff with a host of impossibly handsome men.

Suddenly one of them kisses her. It’s the most perfect kiss she’s ever experienced in her short – and frankly to date, romantically disappointing life.

Sweet, sexy and full of promise, Imogen wants more, but by the time she recovers her wits sufficiently to remove her blindfold her mystery kisser has disappeared. Could her Prince Charming be one of her fellow-chefs, Dimitri or Bastien?

Both are clearly interested in her. But there’s also enigmatic Latino hunk Enzo, good-times-guy DJ Cheyenne, aristocratic Amaury, and the American visitors – Archer and Everett.

Most Read

So many men, so little time. And Imogen can’t just keep kissing men until she finds the right one. Or can she?

Overall, a fast, funny and cheeky little read.
