The Irresistible Mr Wrong tells the tale of six women who fell for the charms of the ultimate playboy Porfirio Rubirosa: Flor Trujillo, daughter of a despot; Danielle Darrieux, French screen star; Doris Duke, richest woman in the world; Zsa Zsa Gabor, wife of Conrad Hilton; Barbara Hutton, 'Million Dollar Baby'; Odile Rodin, ingenue French actress. Jeremy Scott intertwines the stories of these celebrated young women to tease out why they all went for such an inveterate bastard. Rubirosa was clearly a consummate and practised liar, as well as a blatant adulterer: how and why did they all come under his spell in the knowledge that he would break their hearts having availed himself of their bank accounts? What nefarious secret drew them to the self-evident Mr Wrong? Set in New York's jazzy, hip-swaying Cafe Society, the kinky, smoke-filled bars of pre-war Berlin, occupied Paris and other postwar haunts of the wealthy Jet Set, this is a story of fast living and glamorous seduction that centres on the incredible allure of a small man possessed of a large masculinity.
