May 2011 Book of the Month.

The bestselling author of DESIRE and PASSION is back with a fantastic new blockbuster. It's a fabulously addictive read filled with glamour, passion, ambition, secrets, desire and true love.

There's Marcus Broder - rich, attractive, infinitely desirable. Plenty of women who want him, as they quaff their Pol Roger champagne. He's the toast of Manhattan.

And there's Kate Fox, the girl who gets the guy. She wears a silver wrap dress by Burberry Prorsum; make up in primer by Laura Mercier, foundation by Bobbi Brown, YSL bronzer and Chanel pink-silver Rouge Argent lipstick; a Kate Spade purse; Wollford stockings and teetering Manolo pumps. You know the type. And she's got a sensational ass just like a peach. In fact, as we discover later, she's a magna cum laude piece of ass. How can she fail? She'll get her prize for sure.

And she does. Indeed, she marries him. But is he all she dreamed he would be? She doesn't need to work but wants to keep working. He wants her to stop. Tensions ensue. Marcus is not nice at all. She leaves him. They divorce. From such beautiful beginnings, things get ugly.

He's not the kinda guy that lets his girl go without making her suffer. Out of revenge, she makes a move on David Abrams, a business competitor of Marcus.

This is a fight to the end. But who wins? You'll have to leave it to Destiny.

Synopsis

Destiny by Louise Bagshawe

Orphan Kate Fox is determined to make her mark in the world, and with her gorgeous looks, what better way to secure her future than to marry money? When she attracts the attention of media mogul Marcus Broder - sophisticated, powerful and wealthy beyond measure - it seems as though all of Kate's dreams have come true. But marriage to Marcus isn't everything she imagined. A closet filled with designer clothes, and nothing to do with her time but shop, lunch and be beautiful, does not bring happiness. Before long, Kate wants out of her marriage, a career of her own, and a chance at love. But Kate's reputation as a gold-digger is sealed. Ruthlessly pursued by Marcus, who will stop at nothing to destroy her, Kate knows she has to defeat her past if she is to win the trust of the man she loves.
