Danielle Steel is an internationally best-selling author of over fifty romance novels. Since publishing her first book in 1973, Steel has acquired an enormous following of loyal, avid readers.
Steel was born on August 14, 1947, in New York City, the only child of John Schuelein-Steel, a member of Munich's wealthy Lowenbrau beer family, and Norma Schuelein-Steel, an international beauty from Portugal. Steel's parents divorced when she was seven or eight years old. Afterwards, she was raised by relatives and servants in Paris and New York. She graduated from the Lycee Francais when she was not quite fifteen and in 1963 entered New York's Parsons School of Design. However, she soon abandoned her dream of becoming "the new Chanel" when the pressure to succeed caused her to develop a stomach ulcer. She then enrolled at New York University, where she studied until 1967. When she was eighteen, Steel married her first husband, a French banker with homes in New York, San Francisco, and Paris.

The wonderful new novel from the world's favourite author.
Hugues Martin has worked for the world’s most prestigious hotels, so when he takes over a small, tired, run-down hotel in New York, everyone thinks he must be mad. But he transforms it into a beautiful boutique hotel of impeccable elegance – the Hotel Vendôme –run with the efficiency he learnt through his hotelier schooling in Europe: precision and attention to detail.
But Hugues’ hardworking drive soon becomes too boring for his wife, who leaves him for a rock star, forcing Hugues to try to be both father and mother to their three-year-old daughter Heloise, whilst coping with the full-time job of running his hotel.
And so the hotel and its staff become Heloise’s family – she has much more of a connection with the kind, generous female members of staff her father employs than she has ever had with her own mother. Hugues’ commitment to his work has heavily influenced his daughter, so he is delighted when she decides that she too wants to go to hotel school, and follow in her father’s footsteps. When she departs to start her studying in Europe, Hugues is completely lost without her.Until a work venture brings a wonderful new woman into his life.
For a father and daughter who have always relied solely on each other, will they ever be able to truly break the ties that have bound them for so long? Will Heloise ever be able to accept another woman in her father’s life? And how is Hugues supposed to choose between them?
As life marches quickly on, the close-knit unit at Hotel Vendôme are forced to form new bonds, face the often bitter sweetness that life can bring, and work out the true meaning of love and family.
