A successful journalist is torn between love and her career. Will she have to choose?

Stella Fain has a rule for men she likes: Make them wait . . . But the gorgeous Jay proves an exception to the rule when he bowls Stella off her Prada wedges at a press junket on the Cote d'Azur.

He might seem to have everything going for him, but Stella is about to realise that while jetset lifestyles can be fabulous, her career as a journalist isn't something she wants to jeopardise for any man, no matter how filthy-rich or gorgeous.

And then there's her father – a six-times-married prime slice of Alpha Male with a grudge against inherited wealth . . . and Jay.

There's no denying money makes the world go round and diamonds are a girl's best friend, but they don't make the path to love any easier to tread – with or without the Prada wedges.
