Rachel de Vineabout this book: Marianne is a beautiful, but vulnerable model, and does not realize the effect she has on the men she meets, many of whom are rich and powerful and who want her more for their own egos than because they care for her. She mistakenly agrees to accompany a man she has met to his yacht in the Mediterranean, who introduces her to domination and submission, but in an abusive way, and she wonders if she is destined to be a victim of men like this her entire life. Surely she will one day meet a man who will love her for herself?
Fate, for once, is kind and she meets an older man who she comes to adore, and who loves her, and they are happy for a while in New York, until tragedy strikes, and she is once more alone. In despair, she runs away from her glamorous life as an international model and travels abroad, trying to recover from this latest pain in her life. But, on her return, she finally meets a handsome and powerful Dom, with whom she begins a passionate bdsm affair, and realizes that he is the man she has waited for her entire life. Will Fate be kind this time? Or is she destined to be yet another casualty of the life of high fashion and glamour?
Marianne's story appealed to me because young, beautiful, successful models rarely attract much sympathy when their lives veer off course. Yet beauty and success are no protection from pain and heartache, and, in fact, they can still feel sadness and loneliness and have a deep need to be loved, the same as the rest of us.
Some of the review comments the book has received include:
• "The storyline kept me captivated and many times in her life had the reader on a roller coaster of ups and downs that she experienced."
• "Wow. I was hooked from the very beginning of this story and couldn't stop reading."
