A woman with rare autoimmune disorders & a "no dating policy." A mysterious, cocky British stranger. A dream trip to Paris. What could go wrong?
Christine is on her way to finally check something off her bucket list-a dream trip to Paris. With thoughts of turning thirty looming, she is determined to make this bucket list trip happen and to try to open up her "out of commission" heart in the process.
Colin is a protective, dreamy British man who finds Christine in the airport terminal already second guessing her trip. And he falls hard.
What starts as a perfect "Mr. Darcy" meet cute and instant connection quickly goes wrong. When they find themselves seated beside each other on the plane to Paris, things seem destined to only get worse. However, with some forced proximity and the help of the elderly woman on the plane, they see that the instant connection they shared may have been right all along and agree to spend the week sightseeing together.
But Colin has a secret about why he's traveling to Paris. Both Christine and Colin have something they hope to gain from their Paris trip. Is a week in Paris long enough to change a heart? And can the magic of Paris help a wounded soul accept love?

Brooke Gilbert is a Tennessee native, a microbiology graduate of the University of Tennessee, and a border collie mom. She is, as you may have already guessed, a hopeless romantic and a lover of Jane Austen. When she isn't writing, she works as a jewelry designer, an audiobook narrator, and a graphic designer. Her writing features characters with autoimmune disorders, something she deals with herself. She believes it is important for these types of characters to be seen in modern literature and started writing so she could see someone like herself in literature. She is considered a medical mystery and has several rare autoimmune disorders. These disorders caused her to withdraw from Physician Assistant School, but she is happy to be pursuing her dreams of designing, creating, and writing. She thanks God for leading her heart on this new path and recites "perhaps this is the moment for which you were created" in times of doubt (Esther 4:14).
She loves watching classic ﬁlms (thrillers and romantic comedies, too), reading, playing the ukulele, painting, dancing, Pilates, and spending time with her dog, family, and friends. One of her favorite quotes is from Flashdance: "When you give up on your dreams, you die." She believes that if you're waiting to pursue your dreams, stop waiting and start doing. Your time is now. And may you never stop being a hopeless romantic. Contrary to popular belief, it's a very good quality. She's still looking for her Mr. Darcy.
