Flawless, A Hostile Beauty Novel #1 by Jan Moran

Leave a comment

I received a free kindle copy of Flawless (A Hostile Beauty Novel, #1) by Jan Moran, published by St. Martin’s Press in exchange for a fair review. I gave it four stars.

It’s about the hostile takeover of a family run exclusive skin care business. Mia Valent, Verena’s grandmother & her twin sisters Anika & Bella who are approaching the cusp of womanhood, live together & are all strikingly attractive. She has a circle of strong minded active women friends, Fianna, Scarlett & Dahlia who had supported her during the time after her parents were killed in an automobile accident. In addition to being a friend Scarlett is an attorney who helps Verena with contracts & other legal matters.

Verena is in Beverly Hills receiving a beautiful crystal award for being Visionary of the Year.  Right before the ceremony, she receives a cryptic voice mail from a friend & banker Marvin Panetta to get in touch with him immediately.  It distracts her from the events of the evening. Her fiance, Derrick Logan, had previously been with Greta Hicks, a fashion journalist in Hollywood. She’s sharp tongued & hostile toward Verena. Derrick is a man of many moods & actions. He’s not a kind, sensitive man, quite the opposite. He’s highly placed in a venture capital group.

Verena is preparing to extend the cosmetics into Asia & already had products in place sent there.

She never eats before a presentation & meets Lance, the executive chef at the Beverly Hills Hotel. He prepares an exclusive meal for her in the kitchen.

Will Verena see through Greta & her machinations?  Will she entrust her fiance Derrick with the future of her company? Will she be able to keep the company up & running after the hostile takeover? Will Lance stimulate more than her appetite for good food?

Flawless is the first of A Hostile Beauty Novel.  Watch for more to come from Jan Moran.

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice!
