Synopsis

Priceless by Olivia Darling

At two international auction houses, fine art experts vie to get the world's most fabulous and expensive paintings into their salerooms. At Ludbrooks of London, Lizzy Duffy does her best get ahead as an auctioneer, while her boss Nat Wilde takes advantage of her in more ways than one. Meanwhile Carrie Klein, number two fine art expert at Ehrenpreis in New York has been charged with opening Ehrenpreis's new operation in London, and she's determined that it's going to make her name. And in a draughty farmhouse in Cornwall, impoverished artist Serena Macdonald struggles to support her young daughter by painting family pets. Until a mistake leads to a cottage industry in 'old masters' - and a daring sting...

About the Author

Thirty-two year old Olivia Darling was born and raised in Cornwall. At the age of eighteen she met an Italian art student in St Ives and ran away to Tuscany in hot pursuit of him. The love affair didn`t last but Olivia`s sojourn in Montepulciano inspired a much more enduring passion for Vino Nobile. Her other interests include ballroom dancing `she has won awards for her quickstep` and men who drive Aston Martins. She divides her time between Tuscany and London.
