Vincenzi writes a contemporary saga of lust, power, and betrayal. Tom and Octavia Fleming, attractive, rich, and terribly successful, appear to have the perfect power marriage - until an affair leaves their family in danger.

Their professional lives are deeply involved and seemingly inseparable; their clientele cross paths even socially. Following the affair, theirs becomes an uncomfortable and awkward relationship. Their professional careers begin to teeter on the edge of failure, while rumors of their pending divorce run amuck.

Amidst this high drama, there are still children and parents to be nurtured and cared for, dinners and power lunches to attend, a dauntingly inexhaustible list of to-dos. Can Tom and Olivia find their way back to each other? There are some mighty sharp turns and plot twists ahead.

The bestselling author of Into Temptation delivers another page-turner packed with believable characters and extreme villains, eccentrics, and manipulators. This highly developed work would benefit by adding a cast of players page.
