Lara & the City of Angels


Elle Chardou

About the Book . . . 

The Gorgeous Wife
Lara MacIntyre-Buchanan has it all: a handsome husband, a beautiful daughter and more money than she can spend in a lifetime. Looks can be deceiving and although Lara should be one of the happiest women in the world, she is miserable. So much is missing from her life but the most important, she needs love…

The Superstar Husband
Sean Buchanan is movie star supreme: he has Lara, his blue-blood wife, and a lovely daughter. He also has a billion-dollar movie career that has spanned more than a decade. His wife gives into his every need and she has been the perfect submissive until now but it is no longer fulfilling. Now he wants more…

Marriage Interrupted
Lara takes a part in a cable television show to get away from her so-called perfect life and meets the perfect guy instead. Kristian Stenfeldt has his share of flaws but he is everything her husband is incapable of becoming and now she has to make a decision. Should she hold on to the life she has cultivated or throw it away for a mysterious future that could hold limitless possibilities?

WARNING: This is an erotic contemporary romance story part of the Superstar Marriages Anthology. This story contains a badly behaving movie star, a submissive wife who has to come to terms with finding a backbone, a hot guy who is too delicious to resist and a storyline that guarantees an HEA…though it might not be with the man you think!

Reader Review. . . 

To an outsider, Lara and Sean are the perfect Hollywood couple.  Looks, money, career....they have it all.  But behind closed doors it's another story.  When Lara finds the courage to stand up for herself, Sean has to worry about the world learning about his secret life.

First, I have to say that this it not the type of book I normally review.  For me, it seemed like the thin plot was just there to tie the erotic episodes together.  The dialogue always seemed contrived, and if one only goes by the dialogue, it is impossible to pin down the age of Lara's daughter.  One moment she sounds like a small child, and the next moment she sounds like an adult.  Very strange.  Anyway, I'm sorry; it was just not my type of novel.

WARNING:  If explicit sex and/or dialogue offends you, this book contains both.
