JC and the Bijoux Jolis by Katy Regnery is NOW LIVE!



Young passionate couple making love in bed


If the best man and maid of honor are both single, it’s practically an unwritten rule that they should pork.

…so begins a rocky acquaintance between Jean-Christian “J.C.” Rousseau and Libitz Feingold at the wedding of J.C.’s brother and Lib’s best friend. While manslut best man J.C. is surprised when maid of honor Libitz soundly spurns his advances, his curiosity is piqued. The girl he couldn’t have becomes the only one he wants. 

So, when he finds a seventy-year-old portrait in the attic of his sister’s mansion that bears an uncanny resemblance to the prickly gallery owner, he enlists her help in solving a mystery seven decades in the making. Traveling from Philadelphia to New York to Marseille, a couple who started off as enemies will discover that even cynics can find true love…and mortal man is no match for destiny. 

Get to know the families of Blueberry Lane!

 *All books in The Blueberry Lane Series can be enjoyed as standalone novels.*

My Rating:

4.5 hearts

Favorite Quotes:

It's not cold enough in hell for me to fall for someone like you.

How many hearts had he broken? A million, she'd bet. Or more. And the funny thing was?   If you asked him, he'd probably say, 'None.' He probably assumed that because he wasn't interested and made it clear, it staunched any interest or expectation on the side of his partners. Stupid, selfish man. Women didn't work like that.

Her huge spirit was in such contrast to her tiny body, for a moment he wondered how she contained it.

You said that people can change and people can choose.   Well, I'm changing and I choose you.

My Review:

Katy Regnery has turned out yet another engaging, well written, and sweet-n-sexy story. This time, it involves a notorious playboy (J.C.) and a smart and savvy woman (Libitz) whose best friend has forbidden her to have anything to do with him. They start off on the wrong foot despite having a mutual attraction, but J.C. could easily stand for Just Casual, as that was the way he rolls with women, lots and lots of women. In addition to the enemies to lovers romance, the storyline also involved a bit of mystery and historical family research. I adored Libitz; she was feisty, smart, and true to herself.   As always, Ms. Regnery's writing was amusing, relevant, saucy, and pleasantly entertaining.

About the Author:


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013. 

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas. 

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller. 

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States. 

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
