Jan Moranabout this book: FLAWLESS is the first book in the HOSTILE BEAUTY series, contemporary women's fiction novels based on smart, stylish, entrepreneurial friends in the "beautiful" industries.
FLAWLESS tells the story of Verena Valent, a young woman at the helm of her family's legendary Swiss skincare company, which caters to a glamorous clientele in the heart of Beverly Hills. She is in the midst of a critical international expansion into Asia when her carefully organized life begins to unravel.
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Melissa Foster states: "Moran creates a captivating world of glamour, romance, and intrigue. A breathtakingly real look at the cut-throat world of the beauty industry. An engrossing view into the world of 'beautiful people' with an ending that will leave you wanting more."
• What is the theme behind the Hostile Beauty series?
In the Hostile Beauty series, readers follow a group of smart, stylish, entrepreneurial friends as they navigate the turbulences of modern life in the business of beauty. Set in Beverly Hills with action flung across the globe, the Hostile Beauty series is an engaging series that features gutsy, determined best friends, and how they manage to live the lives of their dreams.
• How did you come up with the series title, Hostile Beauty?
In my experience, there are many less-than-honorable people encountered in business. In the beauty business, I say that there is often an "ugly side to beauty." I really wanted to delve into these personalities and their actions, and demonstrate how smart, gutsy women protect their businesses and come out on top in life and in love. Hence the series title, Hostile Beauty.
• Will each book focus on a different character?
Yes, each Hostile Beauty book will feature a different friend in the lead role, though other friends will make appearances. Verena Valent is the lead in Flawless, and Scarlett Sandoval is the lead in the second book. The books can be read in order, or they can stand alone.
• Your books are set in Beverly Hills, but the action is often flung across the globe. How do you decide where to take your character?
I've traveled all over the world (although there are still many places I'd love to go!). In Flawless, Verena and Lance have a passionate visit to Paris. They stay in one of my favorite hotels (The Villa and Hôtel Majestic), and they dine at some fabulous restaurants I've visited, including fun favorites, Le Crabe Marteau and Le Speakeasy. The main action takes place in Beverly Hills, but these women are world travelers. And that's half the fun.
