Description
All families have secrets--but could one scandalous secret tear this aristocratic family apart? Sexy, glamorous, and fun, "Wicked Pleasures," set on a canvas as American as English, is the story of a brother and two sisters who discover that they all have different fathers. None of them are the children of Alexander, Earl of Caterham, who was married to their mother for almost twenty years.
A family saga that takes the reader right from the 1950s to the end of the twentieth century, and set between the Hamptons summer homes of New York's elite and the English countryside familiar to any fan of British period drama, it's a tale of the power and greed of the mega-rich, as the great banking business upon which the family's fortunes are won and lost comes to the brink of ruin. Intense relationships, both old and new, are tested to the utmost in this grand and unputdownable summer read.
