A Promise in Provence | Excerpt + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


Lauren is at a turning point. If only she knew where to turn. Her long-term relationship with Mark is fading fast. Instead, she feels drawn to Jean-Pierre, an attractive Frenchman she’d met the previous summer. When she’s laid off from her job as a chef, she decides to go see him in Provence, France.

Mark can’t get Lauren out of his heart, even though it’s been close to a year since she asked him to give her space. When she goes to France, he’s afraid he’ll lose her for good. That is, until he decides to go there, too, as a last-ditch effort to win her back.

At first, Lauren is angry that Mark follows her to France. But a joint desire to help a young refugee boy leads them to work together. Lauren finds herself torn between the two men. Worse, she’s confronted with obstacles in helping the boy and even greater obstacles within herself.

The ride from Avignon was short and now it seemed far too short. During her flight the previous night across the Atlantic to Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and the high-speed train to Avignon, one fact hovered continuously in her mind. She would see Jean-Pierre for the first time in a full year.

There wasn’t only excitement, but also a heaping dose of pure nerves. She had crossed the ocean for a stranger. A stranger who might have expectations of her and their relationship. For her, it was a fact-finding mission at various levels. Jean-Pierre was one of the variables, though not insignificant. He was a man she’d met, felt something for, with whom she’d stayed in touch. Maybe she shouldn’t have, but it was too late now.


Kyle Hunter loves to read and write stories about strong women (and men) who still have flaws, but are ready to pursue their dreams, even if it takes them out of their comfort zone . . . or their country. She writes inspirational romance novels and women’s fiction with a twist: her characters sometimes go places. Take a trip with them and experience their journeys. See how their lives unfold as they make decisions to trust God (or not) in their next steps, learning about themselves and their faith, and finding love along the way! Kyle lives in North Carolina but spent over a decade in France, where some of her characters find themselves.
