Becky Archer’s young life has not been an easy one, growing up on a run-down council estate in the town of Benford in Kent and having to support her mother, brother, and sister after the death of their father. She dreams of a better life in the beauty industry in London.
A chance meeting with a client—the eccentric Pauline Coldwell—changes her life forever. She ends up working in the heart of Mayfair; and her new boss, the enigmatic Mario Bianchi, quickly becomes her lover. And with that, brings a life of adventure . . . and danger. A newly acquired friend and confidant, James Burton, becomes embroiled in matters out of his control. He has fallen for Becky but doesn’t realise the power of Mario.
This is the story of Becky Archer from teenage to adulthood and how she copes with the temptation of love and the perils of jealousy and deceit.
