Lizzie Nichols is a charming young lady getting ready to embark on a new life after college.  She loves to wear antique attire and hopes to one day work with vintage clothing.  Lizzie travels to London to see Andrew, her long distance boyfriend.  After the first disastrous day with Andrew, she discovers that Andrew is not the man she thought he was.  So she hops on a train to Southern France to visit her best friend Shari.  While on the train, she meets a handsome passenger and ends up spilling her whole sordid affair.  When she is done crying, she looks up and is shocked by the intense attraction she feels toward this stranger.  When Jean-Luc gets off at the same stop she does, she is mortified to find out that he is the man her friend is helping out for the summer.  To add insult to injury, she thinks her feelings for him will not be reciprocated after meeting his very beautiful girlfriend.  Will Lizzie find a rare love in Southern France with a man she just met?  

Jean-Luc de Villiers is a sexy and wealthy man.  He is on his way home to Chateau Mirac to help his parents ensure the scheduled wedding goes smoothly.  While traveling home, he meets the most extraordinary young lady and finds himself completely enamored with her.  He has never wanted to share his secrets and desires with anyone.  But there is something about Lizzie that makes him want to open his heart.  The only problem is he is seeing a woman who cares only about making more money.  Will Jean-Luc throw caution to the wind and tell Lizzie how he really feels about her?  Or will he never forgive her for telling his secrets to everyone?


QUEEN OF BABBLE is a humorous tale laced with witty banter and a charming romance.  Ms. Cabot did a great job keeping this reader laughing out loud with her vibrant characters and sniffling when a young romance starts to bud.  Lizzie has a heart of gold even though she always finds herself in precarious situations because she can not keep her big mouth shut.  Jean-Luc is a sexy and fun loving man who wants to find someone who will let him be himself and share his real desires.   The plot is quite intriguing and fun to read with the little twists and turns that Ms. Cabot penned.  If you are looking for a sexy and fun summer read, then I recommend picking QUEEN OF BABBLE.
