Product Description

Sexy, glamorous, and fun, Wicked Pleasures, set on a canvas as American as English, is the story of a brother and two sisters who discover that they all have different fathers. None of them are the children of Alexander, Earl of Caterham, who was married to their mother for almost twenty years. A story that takes the reader right to the end of the twentieth century, and set between the Hamptons summer homes of New York's elite and the English countryside familiar to any fan of Downton Abbey, it's the story of the power and greed of the mega-rich, as the great family banking business upon which fortunes are won and lost comes to the brink of ruin. One family's ties will be tested to the utmost in this grand and unputdownable summer read.

Praise for the work of Penny Vincenzi:

"The doyenne of the modern blockbuster." --Glamour

"Soap opera? You bet–but with her well-drawn characters and engaging style, Vincenzi keeps things humming." --People

"Nobody writes smart, page-turning commercial women's fiction like Vincenzi." --USA Today

"Set in the glamorous worlds of an American banking dynasty and the British aristocracy, Vincenzi’s latest family saga is rife with backstabbing, greed, scandal, extramarital dalliances, and, yes, wicked pleasures."--Booklist

"Vincenzi (The Best of Times; Windfall) does it again with another captivating and entertaining family saga that combines power, riches, lies, and greed. As soon as ­Virginia, Countess of Caterham, confesses to her therapist that none of her children are aware they have different fathers, readers are hooked . . . the compelling main plot will keep readers glued to the pages of this lengthy novel. For fans of Barbara ­Taylor Bradford and Danielle Steel."--Library Journal
