The ultimate glamorous, escapist blockbuster – perfect for fans of Melanie Blake, Jackie Collins and Shirley Conran’s Lace.

‘Campbell’s warm, wise bonkbuster…transports you to the sexual free-for-all of the 1970s… There’s an upbeat honesty in the writing that reminded me of Jilly Cooper’ Rowan Pelling, Daily Mail

‘A rip-roaring, gold-plated, sizzling bonkbuster – this is one for Jackie Collins fans everywhere who are missing the glitz!’ Fiona Walker

Glamour. Deceit. Sex. Deadly ambition.
They have the world at their feet.
And they want it ALL.

Innocent Phoebe has only known a life of privilege.

Street-smart Paula has had to make her own way in the world.

When the two girls meet as teenagers, they form a deep sisterly bond, recognising in one other a yearning for love and for lives that are different from the ones they were born into. But when they each suffer a personal trauma, they are torn apart and set out on very different paths.

So begins a rollercoaster journey throughout the 1970s of extreme highs and lows for Phoebe and Paula, as they travel from the epicentre of cool on the Kings Road, Chelsea, to the glamour of Paris, LA and the South of France.

It’s a scandalous world of sex, drugs, celebrity and wealth – alluring, addictive…and deceptive.
