A society wife who runs his home like clockwork, four gorgeous children, a smart stucco in West London and, most importantly of all, his multi-national PR business. Greed.

Not only are Ross and his family welcomed by the country elite, Ross's booming business means he's hailed as a hero of the people. Wrath. But Miles Straker is a dangerous enemy and he vows to take the Clegg empire apart piece by piece, starting with his obnoxious family Battle rages from the boardroom to the bedroom as old money takes on the new, and two families are plunged into a bitter feud.
