Overview

Cate Canton has only one goal: to crush her professional rival, Dita Newton, and reclaim the future unjustly stolen from her. The only obstacle is her attraction to the woman she has vowed to destroy.

Young Cate Canton dreams of becoming a designer and running Seraphim, the Boston fashion house her late mother started. Born into a loving family, and with everything to live for, she loses it all when misfortune and tragedy strike. In the aftermath of betrayal, Cate vows to reclaim her destiny. Fueled by revenge, she becomes a ruthless businesswoman with her own successful fashion empire, plotting to one day take over her mother's business by any means necessary.

But one person stands in her way-Dita Newton, the beautiful, gifted designer who now runs Seraphim. Cate will need to crush her adversary to succeed, but Dita strikes back in the most unexpected way-by stirring Cate's fragile, hidden heart. A contemporary high-stakes drama between two driven, passionate women.

Meet the Author

I. Beacham grew up in the heart of England, a green and pleasant land, mainly because it rains so much. This is probably why she ran away to sea, to search for dry places. Over the years, and during long periods away from home constantly travelling to far away places, she has balanced the rigidity of her professional life with her need and love to write. Blessed with a wicked sense of humor (not all agree), she is a lover of all things water, a dreadful jogger and cook, a hopeless romantic who roams antique stores, an addict of old black and white movies, and an adorer of science fiction. In her opinion, a perfect life.

    Couldn't wait to keep reading

    I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of character development and the unpredictable plot as it unfolded.
    I looked forward to the end of my day when I could pick up where I had left off!
    Well done!

    Well done romance

    Sanctuary is a story of revenge and misunderstanding that has a conclusion none of the characters could have suspected.

    Cate Canton is a successful clothing designer who has established her own company as a force in the fashion world, but that isn't enough. She feels that her father unfairly turned her away years ago and robbed her of her heritage, Seraphim, the design house started by her mother. Cate is determined to get her revenge on her father and take back what is hers. While they're both on vacation in Italy, Cate accidentally meets Dita Newton, the young designer who has been put in charge of Seraphim, and fate seems to be playing into her hands. Cate starts out looking for ways to undermine Dita, but finds herself falling in love with her instead. By the time Cate realizes how she truly feels it's too late to stop what's she's done to hurt Seraphim and when Dita finds out what has happened, she turns on Cate with hatred. Dita is injured seriously in a mugging later and Cate steps in anonymously to save the company and Dita's career. It means making a truce with her father and facing truths about herself, but Cate is willing to try. She does it knowing that it may not be enough to show Dita that she's changed or earn her a second chance to make their relationship work.

    Sanctuary is a much better than average romance. The characters are interesting and, even when the reader knows they're doing negative things, it's hard to dislike any of them. The story gives some insight into the fashion industry, but it's the characters and their relationships that drive the book. Cate and her father clearly demonstrate how a family can become dysfunctional because the members don't communicate. Sanctuary is one of those books that's hard to put down, though why may not be clear. Maybe it's that it's a well told story. The reader should get a few hours of good entertainment from this one.
