9780007197668: Being Elizabeth

From the storytelling magic of Barbara Taylor Bradford comes a modern retelling of the drama and intrigue surrounding the 16th-century Queen Elizabeth. Instead of England, the throne is the business empire of the Deravenels. And this Elizabeth is the most powerful Managing Director in its history. Surrounded by rumors and betrayal, Elizabeth Deravenel must steer her company clear of takeovers, and at the same time keep her heart from being broken as scandal surrounds the one man she's ever loved.  It's Barbara Taylor Bradford at her very best.

From the Back Cover:

The number-one bestselling author delivers her most provocative, sizzling novel yet?a story of money, power, love, and betrayal that only Barbara Taylor Bradford could deliver.

At age twenty-five, Elizabeth Deravenel Turner finds herself in a position few women her age could image: the head of Deravenels, a business empire that spans the globe. It's a company whose reach is wide and whose secrets are deep. Deravenels has roots that go far back in her family's history?and she knows the price that many had to pay to see it reach the success it is today.

BEING ELIZABETH

Elizabeth is the youngest executive in the company she now leads. Surrounded by rumors and disloyalty, she is aware that there are many people who would give anything to take down the company?and her with it. With her enemies circling, she finds herself at a crossroad of choices involving her mind, her heart, and her destiny. As scandal surrounds the one man she's ever loved, Elizabeth discovers how the next move she makes could have deadly and final consequences...

"Rife with dastardly internecine struggles, smoldering illicit passion, and cowardly insidious betrayals...[the Deravenels] pack as much intrigue as any Shakespearean royal drama."?Booklist
