THE HEIRESS WHO TOOK ON A LOT MORE THAN SHE BARGAINED FOR!
Why does an unknown young woman, living thousands of miles away, inherit the fortune of a French champagne millionaire after he is killed in an air crash? Sandra O'Neill, an American investment banker, is totally dumbfounded when she hears that she has been made the sole heir of Georges Desmond, a man she hardly knew, but who was the long-time lover of her mother, Helene.
Beautiful, bilingual, clever and ambitious, the heiress arrives in France to take on not only the runnings of the celebrated Desmond champagne marque but, unwillingly, the enmity of Georges's strangely disinherited family. Will her character and background stand up to their machinations as they attempt, by as foul means as possible, to snatch back from her what they claim as their rightful inheritance.
