Meet Kick Keswick, an elegant and self-possessed American who has been at London’s venerable Ballantine & Company Auctioneer, Ltd., for over thirty years. She is an expert on paintings, furniture, and objets d’art, and so far has lived a perfectly happy life with things on her mind other than love. In fact, Kick rarely lets anyone into her private world. She prefers it that way. She adores her elegant London flat, her books, her music, her delicious meals, and, most of all, her jewels. Kick doesn’t need a man in her life messing things up. But when American industrialist, scoundrel, and womanizer Owen Brace grabs the faltering Ballantine & Company in a corporate takeover, he turns Kick’s world upside down, opening her eyes to large-scale love, romance and sensuous pleasure.
Something tells Kick that Brace’s motives are anything but sincere, however. And when he gets near enough to threaten Kick’s closely guarded life, Brace learns the dangers of underestimating this woman. From sophicticated London to Kick’s secluded farm in Provence, France, BRILLIANT is a playfully delicious novel of suspense, masterful revenge, and secrets of the multi-faceted kind.
