Juliette Sobanet belongs to the city...plus a book giveaway

Now that Juliette Sobanet has taken her readers to Paris, she's back in the USA, this time in California with her new e-novella series, Confessions of a City Girl. After the two stops in Cali, she'll be sending readers to the other side of the country, specifically to Washington DC! (Melissa A is very happy about that.) And since she can't get enough of Paris, the fourth e-novella will be located there. (Melissa P will be thrilled!)

Juliette has THREE e-book boxed sets to give away to readers anywhere in the world!

CONFESSIONS OF A CITY GIRL: LOS ANGELES

In their efforts to start a family, talented DC photographer Natasha Taylor and her professor husband have plunged headfirst into the stressful world of fertility treatments, scheduled sex, and IVF-induced debt. When an opportunity arises to sell a gallery left to Natasha by her late mother, Natasha hopes the sale could dig the couple out of financial ruin, give them one last shot at a baby, and save their crumbling marriage.

But when her husband walks out on her and doesn't show up to her most important exhibit, an intense encounter with the alluring Nicholas Reyes—a once-famous photographer turned investor—leaves Natasha questioning everything she believed she wanted for her life.

Nicholas offers to buy the gallery...on one condition: Natasha must join him for a decadent weekend in Los Angeles, where he will give her the career opportunity of a lifetime and one unforgettable Hollywood night.

How harmless could one night be?

As it turns out, one night with the disarming Nicholas Reyes has the power to unravel Natasha's tightly-wound world and awaken her in ways she never could have imagined.

CONFESSIONS OF A CITY GIRL: SAN DIEGO

Liz Valentine’s intense career as a covert officer for the CIA has made it nearly impossible for her to keep a man around. Her non-existent love life only becomes more hopeless when her long-time partner—the man she has been in love with for years—is killed on their latest mission overseas. What’s worse is that Liz blames herself for his untimely death.

In an attempt to get her head on straight, Liz jets out to San Diego to attend a yoga retreat at her sister’s new studio. Before she can say “om,” Liz is entrenched in the land of margaritas, sunshine, sexy surfers, and way too many down dogs. But when one oh-so-enlightened yoga instructor catches her eye—and her heart—Liz must decide if the loveless life of a secret agent is truly what she wants after all.


Juliette Sobanet earned a B.A. from Georgetown University and an M.A. from New York University in France, living and studying in both Lyon and Paris. She worked as a French professor before turning a new page in her career, penning romantic women's fiction with a French twist. She is the author of four short stories and five novels, including the bestselling Sleeping with Paris. Today she lives in San Diego, where she devotes her time to writing, teaching yoga, dancing, and dreaming about her next trip to France.

Visit her at her website, Facebook, and Twitter.

My town has a huge rodeo arena. It may not be interesting to all people, but it does draw a huge crowd during rodeo season.

Lots of rivers and creeks.

Probably the largest city close to me is Steubenville, Ohio. Yes, there is more to it than the recent bad publicity. I did not know it at first, but Dean Martin was born and raised in Steubenville and there are tributes to him all over the town.

I moved to Baltimore city less than a year ago...and I recently was at a neighborhood meeting and found their uses for 911 rather interesting...

I lived outside of Los Angeles from the time I turned 14 til I was 32 then moved to San Diego for 20 years. Now I live near both of them. These books would be perfect for me. Something interesting...the San Diego Zoo and Safari Park are the greatest parks for viewing animals (IMHO) in this country.

I live in a city known as the Techie town and Oxford of the East. Also, my city is close to Mumbai, which is house to the Indian film stars. So all in all I am in one hell of a company.

I live in a town called Toowoomba. It means "swampy place". They got that right.

I live in Atlanta, and I am sorry to say, it's not that interesting.I want to share some exciting Gone WIth the WInd Stats, but the only real thing attached to the book that exists is Margaret Mitchell's home. Oh, how about this. In the last five years, due to some tax breaks, Atlanta have become a movie making haven. Lots of major movies are now filmed here and it's fun to see local sites/buildings pop up on the big screen. In fact, the new Tom Cruise movie is being filmed ten miles form my house!

I live in Tucson, AZ. During the last weekend of every February since 1925, Tucson hosts the Tucson Rodeo Parade which is billed as the largest non-motorized parade in the world. Schools close here on Thursday (the day of the parade) and Friday, and rodeo festivities continue through the weekend at the rodeo grounds.
