More About the Author

Hi! Come see me at victoriafox.net - and if you'd like to be updated when I have a new book out, sign up at victoriafox.net/sign-up. I'm also on Facebook.com/victoriafoxwrites, and spend too much time mucking about on Twitter @VFoxWrites. I'd love us to be in touch.

By day I live in London. By night I relax in my fantasy LA mansion, sipping Krug in a Jacuzzi and watching a bare-chested man clean out my pool. I was born in 1983, went to boarding school in my teens and studied English at university, where I wrote my first (unpublished) bonkbuster: The Hardest Part. It was truly dreadful.

After working in publishing for a few years, I decided to quit and follow my dream...and I haven't looked back since. My best moment as a writer so far was when my idol Jackie Collins said 'Victoria Fox is always a fun read!' That's good enough for me.

Format: Paperback
This book is a real page turner, great fun to read and one which I absolutely adored. We have seven people, amongst them some of the richest, most powerful, most pampered people you could wish to meet. Although their paths may have crossed at the most lavish functions, they don't know each other that well at the start of the book, but that will soon change. The one thing they have in common is that one person wants revenge on them for past sins.

Part 1 of the book sets the scene. We are introduced to the characters during the six months before the revenge takes place. We get to know them, get an idea of what makes them tick and what they may have done to deserve the revenge. I loved this part of the book and what a bunch they turned out to be - spoiled, vain, greedy, arrogant and all seeming to have sex more often than I have cups of tea.

Part 2 deals with the act of revenge and the aftermath. I won't spoil the read, but our characters are going to find themselves in a totally alien environment, stripped of their possessions, their hangers on, their power. How will they react when they have to fend for themselves for the first time in their lives? Will they pull together as a team or will their egos not be able to take it? Will they get out of the hell they find themselves in? And what of their persecutor - will they put two and two together and realise that they have been set up? What if he isn't satisfied? And as for the people they have left behind - will they be able to take the strain of not knowing what has happened to them?

I loved the read, it was fun, sexy, thrilling, made me laugh more than a few times, and was just a complete page turner. Many thanks to the publisher for the ARC in return for an honest review.

It's not often a book leaves me speechless but Power Games has managed it. Victoria Fox is an author I have wanted to read for a long time. I bought Wicked Ambition and Temptation Island a while ago but never got round to them. That is a mistake I will be rectifying ASAP. I feel like this book should come with one of those 'As good as...' stickers and it would say 'As good as Jackie Collins or your money back'. As Jackie is one of my all time favourite authors that is the biggest compliment I can give Victoria. I've never found an author in this genre whose books I devour and become addicted to as much as Jackie Collins, until now that is!

At almost 550 pages Power Games isn't a short read, but not one of those pages is wasted. For me it's one of those books that you never want to end but that you can't wait to finish to see how the story will conclude. If you've read the blurb then you will know that seven celebrities find themselves trapped on an island after their private jet crashes. But how do they get there? Billionaire Voldan Cane organises the crash after he discovers defaced pictures of the seven celebrities amongst his dead son's belongings. Before we reach the island however we go back in time a few months to meet the characters.

And what a bunch, the seven deadly sins are all here. What struck me at the beginning was how unlikeable some of them were. I found myself wondering whether I would like any of them, and which characters, if any, I would end up rooting for. We are introduced to so many characters all at once, but it didn't confuse me at all as that is common of this genre to focus on many different characters. The situations we are treated to before the crash are, as you would expect from this genre fabulously outrageous.

Format: Paperback
Victoria Fox has most certainly got a Jackie Collins vibe. Her characters are large, loud, vivacious and unforgettable. You will either love them or hate them.

The reader follows the lives of the glitzy, the bold and the beautiful, the famous and the infamous. They are all busy hiding themselves and their secrets behind their celebrity personas.

I found it quite interesting that some of the characters are similar to real life public figures. I will leave other readers to draw their own conclusions about who they sound like. Needless to say some of the comparisons shed an uncomfortable light on the real identity behind the well-staged media images.

The lives of seven people are about to change forever on the whim of a twisted bitter old man, who is set on revenge no matter the cost or fallout. This very meticulously planned revenge is based on minor slights, embarrassments and rejections. Not really any reason to kill a person, let alone try to ruin their lives.

In a scenario reminiscent of Lost the victims are supposed to vanish without a trace, instead they end up depending on each other in an extreme situation. Fake smiles wither, good manners disappear and the real personalities can no longer be hidden from view.

Ever so slowly the strengths of some become apparent and the weaknesses of others could be the downfall of their fellow survivors.
If you’re looking for the kind of read similar to Jackie Collins or Danielle Steel then this should be right up your street.
I received a copy of this book courtesy of Harlequin UK and MIRA UK.
