They feel like they are sitting there along with her and hearing the stories of her books from her own mouth, while sitting on an Italian terrace, drinking the coffee, savoring the sunshine and heat, smelling the delicious food, and at the same time getting acquainted with the mystery of the plot. One thing that author Adler wishes should have been in her is her height as she measures only 5 feet and 3 inches.

In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, Leonie is described by the author as having an exotic beauty, pride, seductive innocence, and a fiery spirit. She is shown to have come from the provinces in order to try her luck in Paris. Leonie began singing in music halls, even though she felt shameful to do so and gradually rose to an international fame by singing the songs about love and longing that came straight from her heart. Eventually, Leonie traveled from Paris to the Cote d’Azur, Brazil, New York, Cuba, Cairo, as well as a whole lot of other interesting places. She kept moving in the dazzling world of power, money and passion. However, her world was mostly darkened by the relentless hunger of a man who was determined to possess her.

Peach de Courmont was the only heiress of the de Courmont dynasty and grew up living a luxurious life. She used to live her life and love on her own strict terms. On the other hand, Noel Maddox is described as an orphan raised in one of the orphanages in Iowa. He is believed to have been raised and used to the mean streets present in Detroit. Noel Maddox fought a hard battle with his life and rose from the assembly line up to the pinnacle of power in a very less time. He had the dream of owning Peach and the automobile empire that she commanded. In fact, he was determined to pay any price in order to possess them. The plot of this novel moves from the wartime of Paris to Cote d’Azur, and from the small rooms of Detroit up to the palatial houses of Grosse Pointe as well as to the English countryside. The indomitable wills of Peach and Noel collide in the saga of consuming raw power and passion against the backdrop of the reckless and rich world.
