Library Journal Review

Lewis works in television production in London, and is the author of two popular romantic suspense novels, A Class Apart (HarperCollins, 1990) and Dance While You Can (HarperCollins, 1991). Her third book has rough vitality but it's far too long, with endless passages of explicit sex and sadomasochistic violence. Two young cousins from Bristol--plain, intelligent Marian and beautiful stripper Madeleine--find themselves on a collision course when they both fall for Paul, an ambitious would-be novelist with a cruel streak. Paul and Madeleine run off together to launch their careers, stealing Marian's lottery winnings. The bereft Marian lands a job with a film company and travels to New York, Paris, and Florence--only to encounter her cousin and lover under perilous circumstances. Public libraries should skip this novel and stock up on extra copies of novels by Jackie Collins or Pat Booth instead.-- Joyce Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, N.J. (c) Copyright 2010.
