Hands up who loves this tattoo??!!! I do – i think ALL Scorps should have one, just to warn the rest of us. A heavy-lidded intense gaze and the ability to control Dark Matter on a Tuesday is not always sufficient warning. And the book clearly looks cool, right?
Also, i love the word “adventuress” and stories about girls who claw their way to the top from the gutter; classic example – the original bodice-ripper book Forever Amber. The heroine is actually Pisces though. Another example is the Byzantine hooker Theodora, who became an Empress of the ancient days. She’s also an asteroid – where she is in your chart is where you’re a complex Byzantine adventuress.
Anyway; The Adventuress:
No one forgets Miss Cathy Fox in a hurry. From her scorpion tattoo to her other more worldly charms she’s a woman on a mission to get what she wants.
From her humble beginnings folding knickers as a matron’s assistant at a top girls’ boarding school, Cathy embarks on a journey that will take her from a Portsmouth backstreet to the boardrooms of the global empires. With a cast of footballers, media moguls, lords and dukes, Coleridge charts the rise of a woman who will not be denied, right to the very pinnacle of society – a Royal Wedding.
Cutting a sweep from the 80s to the present day, THE ADVENTURESS charts the rise and rise of Miss Cathy Fox. Irresistibly funny and utterly addictive, this is a delicious tale of money, power, sex and having it all.
Right: What does it mean “from her scorpion tattoo to her other MORE WORLDLY CHARMS?” I mean, what is not worldly about a scorpion tatttoo?
This looks like a book to be devoured with a goopy face mask on & a jumbo sized bag of potato crisps.
