• "An engrossing view into the world of 'beautiful people' with an ending that will leave you wanting more." — New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Melissa Foster
So pleased to announce the #2 book in the Hostile Beauty series! BEAUTY MARK is the story of Scarlett Sandoval, an intellectual property attorney in Beverly Hills, by way of Spain. I had great fun with more of my favorite locations in this smart 'n stylish romantic suspense saga.
As Beauty Mark opens, Scarlett is negotiating on deal between an eccentric fashion designer and an international cosmetics company when a partner demands more of her than she is willing to give. In addition, she discovers her client might be part of an insider trading scheme. When she begins to question things, she finds herself suddenly in danger.
Adding to the intrigue is an old friend from the barrio, Johnny Silva, who is now the maitre d' at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel. On a trip to Spain, they find their long friendship developing into a strong mutual attraction, though his past threatens to derail their relationship.
When Scarlett's life is danger and her world is collapsing, Scarlett's friends and fellow entrepreneurs in the beauty world rally to support her. But can she salvage the life she's worked so hard to create?
• "Jan Moran is the new queen of the epic romance." — USA Today Bestselling Author Rebecca Forster, Author of Expert Witness
Author Interview with Jan Moran
This #2 novel in the Hostile Beauty series was great fun to write. I had fun with the title, too. Beauty Mark is a play on words combining beauty and trademark with the more nefarious definition.
In Beauty Mark, the competitive world of beauty and fashion meets the perilous arena of legal maneuvering and insider trading. This all made for fascinating, fun writing.
Plus, I mined my memories of my travels in Spain — the arts and culture, food, people, and so much more. The scene in Cadiz? Yep, that's what I unexpectedly encountered once when I landed there...
Add in great fashion, food, parties, and horses, and I hope you'll have just as much fun reading Beauty Mark as Flawless.
You'll see familiar friends from the first novel, Flawless, so you'll learn what happens to skincare mogul Verena and her heartthrob chef Lance as their story continues, too.
Of course, there is another book in the works, so stay tuned as the saga of these indomitable women in the beauty business continues.
And remember, there's always an ugly side to beauty.
