Vowing to repay the sins visited upon her family seven-fold, she swore vengeance \-\- and throughout the tumultuous decades that followed, committed her own share of sins as she ruthlessly built a fashion empire and clawed her way to the top, climbing to the peaks of glamourous international society, money and power. But vengeance can carry a price all its own. Relentlessly pursued by more than her share of wrathful enemies \--all of whom have personal reasons to destroy, or even kill her \--she discovers that love is a far more powerful potion than retribution and that it is the only salvation that can make her life whole. |
