Here’s the set-up:

Set in New York and Paris amid the glamorous and competitive worlds of art and real estate, Scorpio Rising takes the reader from the late 1940s to the 1960s through the tumultuous lives of its heroes.

There is Alex Ivanov, the son of a Russian immigrant and part-time prostitute. He yearns to escape his sordid life and achieve fame and fortune. His dreams of becoming a world-class builder are met with countless obstacles, yet he perseveres in the hope of someday receiving the recognition he craves.

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.

Monique Domovitch’s debut novel, Scorpio Rising, is a compelling tale filled with finely etched characters and a superb understanding of the power of ambition. Scorpio Rising promises to resonate with all who once had a dream.

Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers Favorite
I found this book quite enticing and very difficult to put down. In fact I read it in one morning. The lead characters Brigitte and Alex are quite captivating and work well together. Domovitch is a master of characterization, even developing the cast of secondary characters. This would make a great movie. This plot has it all drama dealing with life in general, greed, and deception. This book plays on the readers emotions, with an ending that leaves the reader ready to jump into the sequel. If you enjoy a good drama, this is the book for you.

Even as a young man during the early 1950’s, Alex Ivanov’s is determined to leave his life of poverty and become rich. He soon finds, however, that in order to achieve his dreams he must make some sacrifices. Thousands of miles away, in Paris, beautiful Brigitte Dartois escapes from her abusive childhood and struggles to make it on her own. But when fame comes knocking, it also brings dangers from the past.
Some people have ambitions so great that they will trample on anything and anyone to achieve it. Born in Brooklyn from an embittered mother, Alexander Ivanov climbs his way to a better life in New York. Thousands of miles away, beautiful Brigitte Dartois also has big dreams and raging ambitions. Scorpio Rising is an American saga, the story of two people whose single-minded obsessions are put to the test when they meet.

Mystery Readers Alert! All Rave Reviews For Monique Domovitch‘s Getting Skinny (A Chef Landry Mystery) – $2.99 on Kindle

4.8 stars – 6 Reviews
Text-to-Speech: Enabled
Or check out the Audible.com version of Getting Skinny (A Chef Landry Mystery)
in its Audible Audio Edition, Unabridged!
Here’s the set-up:

Owning a restaurant is as crazy for Nicky Landry as an alcoholic owning a bar. But despite having to cram herself into a body shaper to look decent in a dress, life is pretty good. She’s throwing the party of the year for her graduating doctor boyfriend, Rob, who she’s sure is going to propose—until his new girlfriend shows up at the party.

After ordering Rob to get his stuff out of her house and get lost, Nicky finds him faceup with her expensive Chroma knife sticking right out of his cheating heart.

As the prime suspect, Nicky is in hot water. And no matter how hard she tries to clear her name, her problems only mount. She’s convinced she can solve the murder—if only she can figure out the identity of the skinny person seen walking away with Rob after the party.

Getting “Skinny” won’t be easy for Nicky, but she never imagined it would be life or death…

Reviews

Wonderful and funny!

“…So glad I read this book! Really great characters, I especially loved the main character…loved the pace of the book as well…”

You will get skinny, you will forget to eat! Great read…

“…I could not put this book down and when I did, I wanted to cook the recipes! What a great addition, adding a menu. A must for book clubs. Read and then cook!…”

About The Author

Monique Domovitch is the author of Scorpio Rising and The Sting of the Scorpio. She also writes under the pen name Carol Ann Martin for Obsidian, an imprint of Penguin. She is represented by Natalie Fischer of the Bradford Literary Agency, and lives with her husband and her three dogs in La Jolla, California.

She was born the first in a family of ten children in a small town in Northern Ontario, and maintains to this day that she was not harmed by the experience. She attended The Sacred Heart Convent, an Ottawa boarding school where she learned to keep her hands folded neatly in her lap and to smile vaguely when people use profane language around her.

Her first job was in Montreal as a fashion model, and she is credited with inventing the famous pouty pose that is now used by top models everywhere. She has turned thirty nine again this year and pledges to do it over and over. Just like everybody else in the world, she is working on a new novel, this one, her fourth.

One Reviewer Notes:
This author has a wonderful way of weaving a story - particularly in the way she meticulously paints little details that give such colour and presence to the characters that they truly come alive. It was a very engaging read. The ending felt a little abrupt but mostly because I wasn't ready to say good bye to the characters and leave their story. I look forward to the sequel!

Heads Up! You Have Until Sunday to Enter This Week’s Brand New KINDLE FIRE Giveaway Sweepstakes, Sponsored by Monique Domovitch, author of SCORPIO RISING

2011 is behind us, and the 13 Kindle Fires that we gave away to fans of our Kindle Nation Daily Facebook page are just a distant memory … except to the 13 winners, each of whom is probably enjoying her (or his) new Kindle Fire at this very moment, despite having told us in just about every case that “I’ve never won anything before!”

But here we are in 2012 with plans to give away another brand new Kindle Fire every week, and the question is … “Why not you?”

That’s right, we’re going to give away over 50 Kindle Fire tablets in 2012, and if you think about it, you stand a very good chance of winning one, compared to just about any other Sweepstakes you can imagine. We think big here at Kindle Nation Daily, but the truth is that we’re strictly small potatoes compared the kind of lotteries that we all hear about with millions of entries. We’re lucky if we have a few thousand entries — last week we had 3,944. So if you make a commitment to yourself to enter every week of 2012, you’d have to say that your chances are pretty good.

And we’re firm believers that the cosmos tilts slightly to favor people who do nice things like supporting our sponsors, so we hope you will act now to download Monique Domovitch’s novel Scorpio Rising … while it is free!

That’s right – not only is Monique sponsoring this week’s Kindle Fire sweepstakes, but she is also offering Scorpio Rising absolutely free.

But it will not last long, so please act tonight. Here’s the scoop:

When the cost of love is the loss of success, which would you choose?


Scorpio Rising

While you’re at it, pick up the next in this suspenseful series, The Sting of the Scorpio, for just $1.99!

 

Here’s the set-up:
Some people have ambitions so great that they will trample on anything and anyone to achieve it.
Born in Brooklyn from an embittered mother, Alexander Ivanov climbs his way to a better life in New York. Thousands of miles away, beautiful Brigitte Dartois also has big dreams and raging ambitions.
Scorpio Rising is an American saga, the story of two people whose single-minded obsessions are put to the test when they meet.
Monique Domovitch has created a page-turning drama worthy of becoming a best-seller. The plot is gripping and the characters well developed. You will fall in love with some and hate others. This book will stay with you long after it’s finished.

And here are the details on the Kindle Nation Week #2 KINDLE FIRE Giveaway Sweepstakes:

There’s no purchase required, but we do need you to go to our Kindle Nation Facebook page and “Like” us. You’ll need to do this on a computer rather than a smartphone, and you should give the page a few seconds to load, because for some reason it takes a little longer. Then just follow the prompts to enter the sweepstakes, and you’re done!

Good luck! And happy reading!
