ROMANTICS ANONYMOUS

by Jean-Pierre Améris

synopsis

With his beloved chocolate business turning sour, socially awkward boss Jean-René decides to enlist an extra pair of hands. Enter Angélique, a chronically shy young woman who shares Jean- René's passion for all things sugar and sweet. She is the answer to his prayers, in ways he didn’t realise. Because while he is looking for a sales rep to keep his sinking ship afloat, she is in fact a gifted, albeit covert, chocolatière extraordinaire whose treats are legendary around town. And as the pair become more and more acquainted it is not long before chocolate is not the only sensual element in the air. Now their respective lack of self-confidence is the only thing left standing in the way of the happiness they so crave.
