October 2009 Debut of the Month.

If you want a blockbuster novel with plenty of sex, scandal, opulence and characters to love and hate then look no further than this marvellous debut novel from Jessica Ruston. She has hit the nail right on the head with just the right level of scheming, bitchiness, drama and of course luxuriousness. Fabulous in every way!

Nicolo's crazy to find a way to crush him again -- but with gambling, addiction, sex and scandal all knocking on the Barnes' family door, maybe they'll destroy themselves before he even has a chance to...
