In her fourth novel, Candace Bushnell writes about three powerful New York City women at the top of their fields, each navigating her way through business, relationships, scandal, success, and betrayal. Nico O'Neilly is the ultimate executive: cool, glamorous, and always in control. The editor-in-chief of Bonfire magazine, Nico is poised to take over the entire division of the company. Nico has a stellar career, a well-respected husband, and a teenage daughter whom she adores; but the romance has gone out of her marriage, and she is tempted to find refuge in the arms of a younger man. If she does, will this derail her secret ambition to become the first female CEO of Splatch-Verner?
Wendy Healy is the president of Parador Pictures. The mother of three children (actually four, if you count her husband), Wendy's hard work has propelled her to the top of the cutthroat movie business. Her nonstop career has made her too busy to notice that her marriage to her metrosexual husband is about to unravel. Can Wendy save her most important production: her family?
Victory Ford is the darling of the fashion world. Fiercely idealistic and immensely talented, Victory can hardly keep up with her own ideas. She's created a fantasy career as one of New York City's top designers, but when she begins dating a cosmetics billionaire, she not only questions what it's like to find love, but what it's really like to succeed in big business. And why shouldn't a woman be as rich as a man?
