♥ Flawless: A Hostile Beauty Novel - Jan Moran ♥

"There's always an ugly side to beauty." - Jan Moran

Verena Valent is at the helm of her family's legendary Swiss skincare company, which caters to a glamorous clientele in the heart of Beverly Hills. After her parents are killed in an automobile accident, she becomes the sole provider for her younger twin sisters and her grandmother. Instead of attending college with her friends as planned, she rises to the challenge. She is in the midst of a critical international expansion into Asia when her carefully organized life begins to unravel.

Verena is shaken to discover that her venture capitalist fiancé, Derrick, might be behind a scheme to take over her growing company. While she struggles to save the business that means everything to her, she meets Lance, an executive chef at the Beverly Hills Hotel. She encounters this intriguing man again while on a business trip to Paris, and soon gains a new perspective on relationships.

When the unthinkable occurs and Verena's world collapses, her friends rally around her. Ultimately, Verena learns that truth, family, friendship, and love are the unshakable pillars of life. But will she get a second chance in business, or in love?


A bit of inspiration ♥

Readers always ask about the story behind the book, so here goes… When I began to write Flawless, the first book in my new Hostile Beauty series, I was inspired by my experiences and observations in the beauty industry, as well as close, life-long friendships. In creating “real” situations and scenes, I often call on my friends in business, those who are running their own company, as well as the high-powered advisors — the attorneys, financiers, and consultants who see it all.
My primary goal is to tell an entertaining story, but I also strive to portray real business situations so that readers can learn something, too. Most people remember stories better than dry textbook advice; that’s why the best presenters tell a lot of stories in their speeches.
