Overview

He ruined their lives. Now he must pay.

All Sasha Miller ever wanted was a place among the great scientists of her time. But when she falls for the seductive charms of Professor Theo Dexter, she loses her heart — and the brilliant original theory that was going to jump-start her career. Sasha is left with nothing…except an unquenchable thirst for revenge.

Eight years later, rich and famous Theo Dexter is the darling of the American media and every woman’s fantasy. Every woman except one.

Now head of a successful business empire, Sasha’s been laying the groundwork for the payback Theo so richly deserves. But if she’s going to do it right, she can’t do it alone. She’ll need the help of the only other woman who knows the ugly truth hidden behind Theo’s handsome façade: his spurned ex-wife Theresa. Together, the pair will concoct a plan so spectacular it will bring Theo down once and for all.

It is high time Theo Dexter learned: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Prof. Theodore Dexter lusts after naïve Sasha Miller, a first-year Cambridge University student and physics phenomenon under his advisement. Once Theo manipulates Sasha into bed, it isn’t long before he also manipulates her future, stealing her groundbreaking theory as his own, which launches his career into the stratosphere. From that moment on, Sasha abandons physics in favor of cutthroat business so that she can obtain the fortune, fame, and power required to bring down Theo, who ascended to television stardom on the strength of her work. While Sasha’s eventual victory is never in doubt, Bagshawe keeps things interesting with multiple subplots incorporating Theo’s miserable wife, Theresa, and Sasha’s business adversary, Jackson. Hollywood glamour, Wall Street acumen, and English style dominate the action, and while both Sasha and Theresa get happy endings with nice guys, readers seeking the vulnerability, sexual chemistry, and humor that make romances fun to read will have to look elsewhere. Agents: Alexandra Machinist and Luke Janklow, Janklow & Nesbit. (Apr.)
