Share Article

A disarming modern-day story of unrequited passion and intrigue finally released.

From published poet and short story author Rusty Blackwood comes an engaging novel set in the most romantic place in the world. Released through Xlibris, Passion in Paris: Connections to the Past tells of a disarming modern-day story amidst the bright Parisian lights.

The past may contain secrets which only the future dare unlock; even then, it is purely a question of chance for those who venture forth. Like a web of deceptive patterns, Passion in Paris: Connections to the Past tells a story of forbidden love, salacious adultery, cunning jealousy, and unrequited passion at the dawn of the twenty-first century, in the bewitching city of lights. As Paris welcomes the festive season, Joy Wychmere and Cullen Malone revel in a time never to be forgotten, but only if they survive long enough to enjoy it.

The intrigue, drama, and excitement in Passion in Paris have only just begun. Blackwood invites readers to join her as she unravels the story of Joy and Cullen and how their past converges with the present in this arresting fiction.

Passion in Paris: Connections to the Past is the first of a two-part series from the author. Readers can anticipate the continuation of Joy and Cullen’s story in the second installment, Passion in Paris: Directions of the Heart.

Passion in Paris will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information, log on to or check out the author’s website at
