A Passion she could not deny—A lie she could never escape—
From the depths of a London slum, Amanda Granger created an illusion of wealth and breeding that became her passport into New York society. With her dazzling beauty and the ease with which she lived her lie, Amanda captivated an adoring public and drove men to bold and dangerous passions.
But for all her fierce ambition, all her daring dreams, Amanda Granger knew that her heart’s desires were held together by the fragile threads of deception and secrets. Triumph would always be elusive until she escaped from her web of deceit.
THE LEADING MAN, MATTHEW WADE
Matthew Wade is the kind of historical hero whose only real flaw is situational. He’s tall, dark and handsome. Matthew MacFadyen comes to mind when I think of my Matthew. But then Matthew MacFadyen often comes to mind.
He’s stuck in a loveless marriage to a beautiful, but spoiled, ambitious, conniving and heartless woman. His marriage was arranged by his father, a banking magnate, who dreams of uniting his own bank, with his recalcitrant son, Matthew, as president, to that of Sydney’s father’s bank.
Matthew dreams of creating a retail store in 1890 New York that will offer luxury and every day goods from all over the world. His vision is that his store will be a destination for New York tourists. Russian diamonds, to China silks and Ming vases to East Indian spices and foods from all over Europe are his goal; along with traveling the world to buy them.
All of New York calls Matthew a fool. Until he builds his multi-storied dream with an automatic movable Tiffany glass ceiling in the center of the building. His venture is an instant success and though he’s proud of his accomplishment, his fame and wealth are nothing without Amanda.
Matthew’s wife, Sydney, holds his young daughter as a pawn in her game to manipulate Matthew. As much as he loves his daughter, he cannot live without Amanda. Finally, he matches wits with Sydney and of course, he wins.
