He may prove a stout foe to both you and Amaryllis. Keeping things even more complicated, your brother comes to town and promptly falls for your frenemy Sebastian’s sister! And what will your brother think of the glittering Parisian nightlife? What will happen to Armand’s estate? And can you best Mauplaisant before he ruins your next date?

And what of the lovely Yasmina? A new employee at the Belle, well…you may have caught her eye as well. Will you help her adjust to her new life in Paris, or will the bustle and hustle prove too much for her?

I hope this will encourage some people who haven’t played Belle-de-Nuit before to give it a try. I was surprised how much I found myself loving the characters, and how they were so much more than the stereotypes they could easily have been.

In Point-du-Jour, all the characters that made the first game so warmly satisfying are back, along with a few delightful newcomers, including a new love interest. There’s also a villain this time, and he is magnificently loathsome. There’s some great banter, love scenes that can be tender or playful or passionate or edgy, a lot of historical detail, asexual happiness, literary references, and a deeply moving portrayal of grief.

Oh, and you finally get to name the kitten!

It’s a Heart’s Choice game.

Heart’s Choice.

Congrats Rebecca; love your writing :revolving_hearts:

Is there a way to see the credits for Point-du-Jour, specifically?

Looks like the credits page for Belle-de-Nuit has been updated to include the sequel (the web version at least, but it seems the Steam ver links to choiceofgames too).

Sounds interesting, but I’m disappointed that I can play only female MC. Gender-locked games really put me off.

There’s been a long series of past discussions about how and why Heart’s Choice games are genderlocked, and we know it can be disappointing when a game doesn’t feel like it’s “for” you, but that’s the way it is with our romance titles and how many of our Heart’s Choice authors have to work within the genre.

Is there a way to purchase heart’s choice games à la carte? Ive had issues with the omnibus apps before and prefer buying the games as stand alone product, but can’t seem to find these that way.

Steam, then play the game online

I actually loved Amaryllis even more in the second book. You’ll get to see some different aspects to her character that were hinted at in the first book but not fully developed until now.

Oh! I really look forward to read it, then! (Or rather, even more than before.)

I really enjoyed this! My romance with Sebastian continued so wonderfully. I just love how passionate that man is lol.

The new characters were sweet, especially MC’s brother.

I loved Belle-de-Nuit, easily my favorite of the Heart’s Choice offerings so far, and Point-du-Jour was just as wonderful! The writing just feels so lush and specific. Really glad we got to spend more time with these characters and continue the gorgeous romances!

My only disappointment was the brother relationship: regardless of how MC took it, he was the one to let us down by not standing up to our parents in the past, yet it was all on MC to maintain/rebuild that relationship while he’s lying to us, sneaking around behind Sebastian’s and our backs, and, modern attitudes to female agency aside, threatening the social respectability of a young lady just out of her home for the first time. Just wish we had a chance to straighten him out a little!

Also, I happened to notice: why does François’s poor older brother never get a name? lol
