A story of family, careers, love, loss, and the sacrifices some people make to hold on to power…or to let it go.

A devoted single mother…with life-changing decisions to make.


Fiona Carson has proven herself as CEO of a multibillion-dollar high-tech company, but she still has to meet the challenges of her world every day. Devoted single mother, world-class strategist, and tough negotiator, Fiona weighs every move she makes and reserves any personal time for her children. Isolation and constant pressure are givens for her as a woman in a man's world.

Meanwhile, Marshall Weston basks in the fruits of his achievements. At his side is his wife Liz – the perfect, supportive corporate spouse – who has gladly sacrificed her own law career to raise their three children. Smooth, shrewd, and irreproachable, Marshall is a model chief executive, and the power he wields only enhances his charisma. And to maintain his position, he harbors secrets that could destroy his life at any moment.

Both must face their own demons, and fight off those who are jealous of their success. Their lives as CEOs of major companies come at a high price. But just how high a price are they willing to pay? Who are they willing to sacrifice to stay on top? Those they love, or themselves?

Danielle Steel

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.
