Surrender to DestinyeBook - 2011
"Chapter One PARIS 2008 The black limousine pulled away from the wrought-iron, gated entranceway of Astrid LeClair's apartment building. It swept down the Avenue Foch, past elegant, period residences adorned with sculptures. As the car traveled past playgrounds filled with squealing children and their vigilant nannies, Astrid recalled her heated conversation with Philippe that morning. Her stomach churned.The chestnut trees along the avenue paraded their new spring green. In the park, Parisian women looked like spring flowers themselves in the latest fashions. Through the car's tinted windows, Astrid was able to watch the world without the world watching her. It had become a novelty. As a star on the rise, she caused a sensation wherever she went in Europe. Her face graced the magazine stands and details of her life featured in the tabloids. She had been with billionaire businessman, Philippe Fabre for five years, since he pursued her relentlessly. No scandal or gossip had touched her since to feed the paparazzo's interest, but the media still hounded her, snapping her as she shopped in the local market. It was life in a gold fish bowl. Philippe pointed out she would be protected by his wealth if she married him and gave up her career to become a mother."-- Provided by publisher.
