Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the woman who brought us Scruples, Dazzle, and Spring Collection comes a provocative new novel, a deeply moving mother-daughter tale set amid the elegance of a famed New York auction house and the glamour of Hollywood.

A mother's secret...

Tessa Kent, exquisite and precocious, gave birth to an illegitimate daughter when she was only fourteen. Her parents raised the infant, Maggie, as their own child, as Tessa went on to become an international movie star. Maggie lives for her glamorous "sister's" infrequent whirlwind visits. But when she accidentally learns the truth, eighteen-year-old Maggie breaks all ties with Tessa and starts to work at the famed Manhattan auction house of Scott & Scott.

A daughter's fury...

Five years later, a life-altering crisis makes Tessa passionately determined to end this estrangement. There's only one way Tessa can reach out to her daughter: a high-stakes auction of the immensely valuable collection of famed jewels lavished on her by her late husband. Tessa promises Scott & Scott the auction on the condition that Maggie and she work closely together on the sale. Tessa's whole future hangs in the balance--for she knows her happiness depends on what may be an impossible reconciliation....

Synopsis:

From the birth of her illegitimate daughter at age 14 to her emergence as one of Hollywood's brightest stars, Tessa's scandalous life unfolds like one of her own starring vehicles. Soon, Tessa finds herself desperate to reclaim the one thing she cannot have--her daughter's love.
