From the Publisher: From her award-winning first novel to her latest spectacular success, Iris Johansen has triumphed as a national bestseller and been heralded every time for her page-turning storytelling, powerful characterization, and dramatic plotting. But that was before....
The Ugly Duckling now reveals a new side to this consistently exceptional talent: she can also weave contemporary romantic suspense that will delight not only her millions of devoted fans but also thrill readers of Sandra Brown and Nora Roberts.
In her hardcover debut novel, Iris Johansen pens the story of devoted mother Nell Calder, the perfect complement to her husband's high-wire career in international finance and the least likely target for assassination. Until the unimaginable happens, and Nell's life is shattered by someone willing to destroy all she loves in an effort to crush her spirit.
When Nell emerges from her nightmare, it is as a woman transformed--literally--and burning with one purpose: vengeance--at any price. But she is not alone, for an enig-matic stranger is more than willing to make Nell's revenge his personal mission, too....
Relentlessly paced, wonderfully orchestrated, and glittering with the familiar yet brilliant touches readers will expect and relish, this is Iris Johansen at her gripping, commercial best. Copyright 1996 by I.J. Enterprises.
