Thirty years ago the world was introduced to Emma Harte. Now meet M, a new woman of substance guaranteed to win our hearts all over again. A new era has begun.

When those you love are threatened, there’s nothing you won’t do to protect them… you’ll even resort to breaking the rules.

Following a terrifying encounter in the quiet English countryside, a dark beauty flees to New York in search of a new life. Adopting the initial M as her name, she embarks on a journey that will lead her to the glamorous catwalks of Paris.

When M meets charming and handsome actor Larry Vaughan they fall instantly in love and soon this couple become an international sensation, appearing on the front cover of every celebrity magazine. M delights in her successful career and perfect marriage and believes she has truly put the demons of her past to bed.

But M’s fortunes are about to take another dramatic turn when a dark figure from her past, someone who she thought she’d never see again, is back and determined to shatter M’s world forever.
