Following a terrifying encounter in the quiet English countryside, a young woman flees to New York in search of a new life. Adopting the initial M as her name, and reinventing herself, she embarks on a journey that will lead her to the catwalks of Paris, where she becomes the muse and star model to France's iconic designer Jean-Louis Tremont. When M meets the charming and handsome actor, Larry Vaughan in New York they fall instantly in love and marry. Soon, they become the most desired couple on the international scene, appearing on the cover of every celebrity magazine, adored by millions. With a successful career and a happy marriage, M believes she has truly put the demons of her past behind her. But M's fortunes are about to take another dramatic twist. A series of bizarre events turn out not to be accidents at all, but assaults on M and her family. The dark figure from M's past, a psychopath with deadly intent, has made a vow: to shatter M's world forever. But M also makes a vow: she will do everything to keep them all safe. When those you love are threatened and at risk, there's nothing you won't do to protect them… you'll even resort to breaking the rules! Moving from New York to the chic fashion capitals of London and Paris, to the exotic locations of Istanbul and Hong Kong, this new tale from a renowned storyteller is a genuine pageturner

I thought this book was awful. I'm not sure why I even bothered to finish it. It's very over the top & unrealistic. The characters meet and instantly become best of friends, everyone falls in love in a single glance & marries within a month, and worse yet they use the word “darling” in all of their interactions with one another. I don’t know if all Barbara Taylor Bradford’s books are written this way, but I will be avoiding them in the future.

Barbara has done it again.
If you read the "Women of Substance" series, this book will blow your mind.
All the characters are incorporated.
She is amazing.
I highly recommend this book.
