Discover the sensual and sweeping power of love in New York Times bestselling author Judith McNaught's contemporary romances that will make "you laugh, cry, and fall in love again" ( RT Book Reviews )—now available for the first time on ebook. When multinational tycoon Cole Harrison approaches her on a moonlit balcony at the White Orchid Charity Ball, Diana Foster has no idea how life-changing the night ahead will be. The most lavish social event of the Houston season had brought out Texas aristocracy in glittering array but Diana only agreed to attend to save face after reading about her fiancé leaving her for an Italian heiress in a sleazy gossip magazine. Her Beautiful Living magazine is her family's success story, and Diana knows that as a single, childless, and suddenly unengaged woman, she is not living up to its lucrative image of upscale domestic tranquility. But when she spots the pride of Dallas billionaires, Cole Harrison, closing in on her with two crystal flutes and a bottle of champagne, she has no idea that he has ulterior motives for seducing her tonight. And he certainly has no idea that a match made in what he considers logic's heaven might be headed straight for an unexpected, once-in-a-lifetime love. "Judith McNaught once again works her unique magic in this charming, sparkling romance" ( RT Book Reviews, 4 stars ) .

I read a lot of reviews that said this book was boring because it had no angst. I thought, “Great! I hate angst, so this book should be perfect for me!” I’m sad to say that this book was indeed, very boring. I loved the short story McNaught wrote as a prelude to this book, called Double Exposure. However, Diana and Cole seem to have no personality.

McNaught tries to make Diana perfect in every way. She even makes Diana belittle her own accomplishments in an attempt to make her look really humble. That doesn’t match the image of Diana being a powerful CEO. You can’t have confidence in your product, and in your company, if you don’t have confidence in yourself. In other words, McNaught has Diana putting herself down all the time for not being able to predict the future. She complains that she’s not really smart because she only made millions of dollars, had she been smarter, she would have doubled or tripled her money.

Cole has a tortured past, and you think McNaught is going to explore this, then, suddenly, Diana walks in the room and the subject is completely dropped. You are left going, “Huh”, while scratching your head. One minute he is telling himself he doesn’t deserve her, and is probably the root of all her problems, then the next page she shows up and he wants her in his life forever.

Most of the time I didn’t realize I was reading a novel, I thought I was reading the annual report for Martha Stewart Living. It was obvious that this was McNaught’s inspiration, and she didn’t even bother to come up with a new name for the fictional magazine. She named it Fosters’ Beautiful Living. Why she spends pages explaining the demographics of the people who buy the magazine is beyond me. McNaught goes into every aspect of this fictional empire, yet it is Cole’s company, and business practices, that plays a major part in the end of the book.

I usually finish a book in one night. This book took me 12 weeks, because I had no desire to find out what would happen next.
