Emma Paes has had a very Dickensesque start to her life. The born in a dumpster, rescued by a missionary and caged in a convent kind.
Over the years, fueled by her love for sitcoms and classics, Emma dreams of visiting the land of Gilmore Girls, becoming a governess and maybe even finding her very own Mr. Rochester.
When she bumps into Harry Colt while backpacking in Paris, she starts wondering if she’s finally found him. But Harry doesn’t fit into any of Emma’s fictional cut-outs. He is neither a beautiful bastard nor a walking disaster. Dammit, he doesn’t even have fangs popping out during sexy times!
Driven by circumstances, they share a hotel room and spend two loquacious nights together in Paris. But then Harry does something which breaks Emma’s heart and she runs away without saying goodbye.
It takes a whole year for them to meet again. But things are different this time. Emma is no longer the naive girl Harry met in Paris. She’s become the reigning Samba queen of Rio and doesn’t need the crutches of fictional or real heroes to lead her life. And not all the sexy v’s and smoldering eyes in the world can make her change her mind.
Undaunted and undeterred, Harry summons all his courage and charm to pursue Emma and convince her that he is worthy of winning her heart back. But will she let him?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Rucy Ban was born in 1978 and still continues to thrive. Ever since she first met Francine (the protagonist of her favorite novel, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn), Rucy fell in love with the written word. Rucy has a B-school degree in Marketing which she now puts to good use teaching lovable rowdy rogues and negotiating with her equally belligerent adolescent. In her previous avatar, she handled corporate communications for companies. At present, Rucy lives in Sao Paulo, travels often, speaks decent, if not quite fluent, Portuguese and really hates talking about herself in third person. Contact her at email@example.com
