New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe weaves a
stunning portrait of a family immersed in deceit . . .and
the women whose happiness depends on the secrets they keep.
After growing up poor in Texas, Vera Lomax used every
gold-digging trick in the book to land a rich husband. Now
living in the lap of luxury in San Francisco, her only job
is to fawn over her much-older husband, so it's been easy
for her to balance a life of shopping and affairs with
younger men with a major secret: the sixteen-year bribery of
one of her husband's mistresses to keep her pregnancy under
wraps. Vera figures that a little hush money every month
will ensure her husband's fortune is hers alone. . .
Unfortunately for Vera, Sarah Cooper is the child Kenneth
Lomax always wanted. When the father she never knew shows up
at her mother's funeral to claim her, it's a fairy tale
journey from the ghetto to a mansion on a hill. But Sarah's
life is not as carefree as her father wants it to be . .
.because Sarah knows from the start that her step-mother is
as two-faced as they come. And after losing all the family
she's ever known, she wants a life that's richer than what
Vera's got planned for her.
Neither woman can be sure who will win Kenneth's heart and
fortune. But as Vera and Sarah scheme to get what they want,
everyone they know will be choosing sides, taking chances,
and gambling it all to come out on top. . .
