Empress by Sylvia Wallace
Marianna Curtis with her long cornsilk hair, her reed slim body, her uptilted nose and her thickly lashed, innocent blue eyes mesmerizes everyone who sees her. She is destined to be a Hollywood superstar and a national idol, to marry a handsome, dominating Middle Eastern Shah, and to become every little girls's dream.
Suddenly, Marianna is in a position of ultimate power and can mete out punishment to those who wronged her on her climb to the top.
And now, Marianna finds that power is so much more important than love.
