This is a beautiful story, a story of love and caring and of two people who just go out of their way for other people but they have also been left a bit scared from previous relationships. Will their journey finally bring them the happiness they deserve? I say you will be smiling in the end.

Then into her life walks Frenchman Julien Moreaux when they need to share a room on their first night in Italy this is going to change her life forever.

Julien is getting away from his high powered job he is getting over a divorce and wants peace and alone time he is not looking for a holiday fling or a new relationship just a break, but that is about to change when he meets the beautiful English red head Indigo and his trip of peacefulness is turned upside down by a woman who likes to talk and care for people.

I loved this story the setting is magnificent the story line fabulous and to see these two caring people work so hard not to fall in love but still doing everything they can to help each other and then to realize they are in love and need each other is a story I highly recommend I smiled and sighed through this story. I loved Indigo's personality so strong and determined and Julien gorgeous and caring don't miss this one.

5/5 stars for a wonderful story

ONE WEEK WITH THE FRENCH TYCOON by author Christy McKellen is a May 2016 release by Harlequin Presents.

Indigo Hughes, after a break-up with her boyfriend goes for a holiday. While on the Amalfi Coast, she meets Frenchman Julien Moreaux. Circumstance forces them to share a room for the night. But they walk away in the morning. Then Indigo realizes she hasn't asked Julien if he was alright as he seemed stressed.

Now starts the fun part as Julien tries to dodge Indigo as he was after some peace and quite. He was recovering from a divorce. Yet Indigo is caring and talkative. And she wouldn't leave him alone.

ONE WEEK WITH THE FRENCH TYCOON has all the markings of a great story. Author Christy McKellen brought this romance to life on the page which would hook her readers in.
And she did a wonderful job of bringing Indigo and Julien together despite all the emotional baggage and past grief they carried.

Highly recommended for all readers of romance.


Review by Amanda

One Week with the French Tycoon by Christy McKellen is fresh, fun, sexy and so amazing! The characters were fleshed out in detail, their back stories were unique and the story on an overall basis was endearing and realistic. I could relate to the heroine Indigo Hughes in a way, and I understood her innermost thoughts well enough to say that I know how she feels throughout the book. The hero, Julien Moreaux had an aura of grace and charm about him yet beneath the strength and beauty of him is a man who is struggling with life on a deeper level. Ms. McKellen did a fine job bringing out the distinctive traits of her characters in a steady pace. Meanwhile vivid descriptions, engaging dialogues and quality writing added dazzle to an already compelling plot.

Highly Recommended

The first thing that caught my eye with this book was the cover. And by cover I mean her red hair as they are not at all common in my neck of the woods. And the twinkle in her eyes made me finish this book in one sitting. If it could be called one sitting if you take a little break to write a poem which was sort of inspired by Indigo's character too.

A story of two people who know how to be selfless when it comes to the need of other people and never backing out from doing what they can.

While they got to know each other on their walk on the Amalfi coast, Indigo realised her love for Julien but staying true to form for a hero in romance (for the most part), Julien had to take some more time and make her leave him before he realised what she really meant to him and come back to his senses. And finally put in motion acts that will bring him to her and her to him.

The one thing that I loved the most, however, is the fact that when Julien was professing his love, finally, to Indigo not once did this man mention how pretty the woman looked because, for him the beauty of Indigo was not in her facial features or her size but her strength, determination and compassion.

High five Christy McKellen for penning a romance that has more love for the character of a person.

Review by Cheryl - 5 Stars

Indigo Hughes has been taking care of people for so long, she has been helping those who perhaps lost their significant other and do not know how to cook. She also helped a man who now has dumped her. She needs to do something for herself and get away and find fine food, views that are breathtaking and heal her heart. She booked a holiday on the Amalfi Coast and it really starts out on the worst possible way. 
Indigo arrives at her first hotel and finds that there is neither a room booked for her nor another room available as it was the busy season. The airlines lost her luggage and ½ her money and her phone etc. are in that bag. 

She encounters tycoon Julien Moreaux and he is what Indigo needs to avoid. He is cynical but sexy and recently divorced and just really wants to be left alone. 

Christy McKellen describes the hiking trail and the scenery so you are feeling like you are on that hike and holiday with them. Does fate keep throwing Indigo and Julien together for a reason? Do they really on this holiday find true love forever? 

It is a book that catches your attention from the first paragraph to the last one. Enjoy!!!

"One Week with the French Tycoon" by Christy McKellen is a brilliant, romantic read. The author does an amazing job in describing the Amfali Coast that you feel as if you are there. After Indigo Hughes decides to go on holiday to heal her heart and take a well needed break she encounters Julien Moreaux and he is healing from a divorce. The two sizzle, but the past has a way of sneaking in. Indigo has a good heart, and wants Julien to trust in them.

Review by Lynn 

A sweet story about accepting love when it crosses your path, even if you're not ready for it!

Indigo Hughes puts helping others in front of her own needs a lot, so when she's at a point in life where she could use a distraction and a break, she decides a trip away is just what she needs!

Julien Moreaux is newly divorced and arrives at the Amalfi Coast at the same time as Indigo. A mix-up has them forced into each other's company for a night and then they each set off on their adventures.

Even though Julien wants to be alone with his thoughts, they seem to run into each other every time he turns around ... and he actually starts to like it! Will Indigo be the breathe of fresh air that he didn't know he even needed?
