Every wonder why the French approach life as they do? This book gives comparisons of Anglo vs French thought processes - ingrained from childhood. Even Americans fluent in French do not thoroughly understand the nuances of the language, hospitality, friendship, professional relationships.

Becoming a francophile can be a lieflong pursuit or contained in 305 pages of Au Contraire! with added suggestions for further research if you are so inclined.

Planning to do business w/a French firm....planning a trip to France...planning to host a French exchange student...ease the process with Au Contraire!

Elfin, green eyed Joyous MacQuarrie is aptly named, with her bubbling laughter & spirit of merriment. But her charming facade hides a secret - she is an enchanted witch w/uncontrollable powers. When she meets handsome but conventional Alec, Duke of Belmore he is - quite literally - swept off his feet by the enigmatic beauty who falls unashamedly into his arms.

When they marry, despite her mysterious past & the questions of his society friends, he is unaware of her gift or her powers. But the man who turned to fire when he tasted her lips turns to ice when he finds out her secret.

Can Joy use her fledgling white magic to divert the scandal that threatens to destroy her & win back the passion that had held their two enchanted hearts spellbound?

This is one of Hall's best.
Incredible plot, storyline. I couldn't put it down. I am hesitant to let it go but know I can always borrow it back in a year or two to re-read.

James Lee Burke - No one has written more lyrically of the Gulf Sream since Ernest Hemingway. JH's lovely descriptions of the Florida Keys & Grand Bahama, his detailed knowledge of the sea & the hunt for giant blue marlin, his creation of fascinating characters & his obvious love of the natural world make this book a wonderful reading experience.
