Beauty Mark
by Jan Moran

In the glamorous world of high stakes beauty and fashion,
Scarlett Sandoval is a top intellectual property attorney in
such demand that her firm sends private jets to shuttle her
between Los Angeles, New York, London, and Madrid. In the
midst of a critical trademark deal between a top fashion
designer and an international cosmetic company, Scarlett is
shocked to learn that in order to achieve her coveted
partnership, one devious partner expects more than she is
willing to surrender. Soon she is marked for murder.

Her denial not only threatens to derail her hard-won career,
but it also endangers her life and the lives of those close
to her. Johnny, a handsome Beverly Hills restaurant owner
she’s known all her life, offers his protection, but
one fateful evening, their platonic friendship ignites.

When Scarlett’s world erupts and she discovers there
is no way back to the life she once had, her other single
friends help her through the turmoil. Can Scarlett mend her
life, or has she made an irrevocable mistake in business,
and in love?

Beauty Mark is the second book in the Love,
California series (formerly the Hostile Beauty series), but
can also be read as a stand-alone novel. Follow a group of
smart, stylish, entrepreneurial friends as they navigate the
turbulences of modern life in the business of beauty. Set in
Beverly Hills with action flung across the globe, this
engaging series features gutsy, determined best friends, and
how they manage to live the lives of their dreams.
