Half a world away, Brigitte Dartois is an abused teenager who runs into the arms of a benefactor with an agenda all his own. When she finds out that her boss has an ulterior motive, she flees again, determined to earn her living through her art. This career brings her fame, but also the unwanted attention of her early abuser.
Domovitch’s novel is a compelling tale, filled with finely etched characters and a superb understanding of the power of ambition. Scorpio's Kiss promises to resonate with all who once had a dream.
M C Domovitch is the author of nine books, four of which were published under the pen name Carol Ann Martin. Another four were published under Monique Domovitch. Now that she is focusing her energies writing Sweeping Romances and Romantic Suspense she had chosen to identify her new genres by using her initials rather than her surname. She is now working on another Sweeping Romance in the style of Scorpio's Kiss, this one, tentatively titled Under a Libra Sky.
Monique has enjoyed other successful careers before becoming a writer. She was one of Canada's top models. "That was a lifetime ago," she says with a laugh. She has also hosted her own television show, Her Money, a program about finance and investing geared for women. It was only when she and her husband moved across the country after the end of her television career that she decided to pursue her true passion, writing. At a writer's conference in San Diego, she attended a workshop where her novel attracted the attention of a publisher and an agent. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Domovitch lives with her physician husband and their dogs, and they divide their time between homes in Victoria BC, Toronto Ontario and Key Largo Florida.
