Perfume Girl Banner



Raquel Wren’s life has been turned upside down. She’s in the midst of a divorce after finding her husband in bed with the weather girl. Her passion is creating the perfect perfume for every occasion. Her passion began in her childhood garden right before her mother died of cancer.

Back to her disastrous life, she doesn’t have the money to pay her soon-be-ex- husband out of their or her perfume shop–Perfume Girl. She was going to sell her newest perfume to Dazzle and Shine for licensing which would allow her to buy him out and keep her afloat for a bit. Someone broke into her shop and stole her notes, Orris oil, and broke her scale. Oh and her perfume was not in her purse as she placed it for her appointment with D&S.

She found out that someone is using her formula to make her perfume. Raquel starts working for The House of Beauregard to find out who stole her formula and get it back. She has numerous encounters with Astor Beauregard the CEO and driving force behind the cologne mogul company. He makes he weak in the knees like no one has before–not even her sexy as hell ex.

Astor has a secret that only he and his family knows. No one will ever find out what it is. His past haunts him every day of his life to the point that he never sets foot into his childhood home. He tends to the horses on the land but never into the house. In his company, he’s brutal. He has zero tolerance for spies–that what he thinks Raquel is. She is after more than what she’s telling him. He knows when someone is keeping secrets. She has all the signs –he should know, he has plenty of his own. Something about her pulls her to him in the most primal way. He wants to resist her, keep her away –but he can’t. He even invites her into his home and takes her to Havana–his heritage. He wants to beat the crap out of her ex for tossing her aside. He takes every opportunity he can to be with her from the lab supply closet to his yacht to his bedroom. She is a part of him. He lets her in when no one has ever been close to his heart. How can a woman he’s only known for a matter of weeks be so ingrained in every fiber of his being? How can he get closer to her so she will reveal her secrets to him?
