Paavo has never come to terms with the fact that his mother abandoned him when he was four, leaving vehind only an antique brooch to remember her by. But when the bauble vanishes, the jeweler who was repairing it is murdered, and Paavo‘s surrogate father is critically wounded by a would–be burglar, Paavo decides it‘s time to discover the truth about his errant parent‘s life and mysterious disappearance.

Andrews heightens the scandal and drama begun in "Forbidden Sister" in this twisting, suspense-charged tale of a wild and desperate girl. Roxy Wilcox has always been rebellious and defiant-- the exact opposite of her sweet, obedient younger sister, Emmie.

Alone in the city, Roxy is determined to make it big and show them all . . . but how? A chance meeting with a stranger opens the door to a whole new life when he introduces her to the tantalizing world of highclass escorts, where Roxy will be taught how to walk, talk, and dress to seduce. She will be pampered, polished, and perfected in the art of satisfying the world's wealthiest men, and the rewards surpass Roxy's most extravagant dreams. But when a shattering tragedy reunites Roxy and Emmie, will the secrets shared between sisters bind them together--or tear them apart forever?
