By Judith Krantz
The cult classic reissued for its 35th anniversary - the original sexy read.
Scruples is a temple of high fashion where the rich and the super-chic can sip champagne, browse, gossip - and buy the most beautiful and expensive clothes in the world. Its owner Billy Ikehorn is stylish, beautiful and rich and her ruthless search for fulfilment leads her from lover to lover.
Then she meets the one man who can match her ambition and her passion . . .
From the romance of Paris and the streets of New York to the staggering luxury and wealth of Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive, Scruples is the cult classic that everyone remembers: the original sexy read is back.
Judith Krantz is the author of ten bestselling novels, of which Scruples was her first. Recognised to be the original - and best - novel of its kind, Scruples lifted the lid for the first time on the lives of Rodeo Drive's rich and famous, establishing Krantz as an unrivalled storyteller and master of her genre.
Judith lives in California.

Arguably the bonkiest of the eighties bonkbusters - and the one that everyone remembers. With good reason. Fasten your seatbelts . . . — India Knight
Under Judith Krantz's fingers, real life has a way of becoming mysterious, glamours, legendary, sequined . . . Scruples will sell like fertiliser in the spring — Vogue
If books were desserts, then Scruples would be the giant sundae you can devour with all pleasure and no guilt. It's so good and brings such joy that you never hate yourself for gobbling up every sinfully decadent page. More than thirty years later, the sensually powerful prose of Judith Krantz still dazzles. But for all the glitzy surroundings, juicy schemes, and racy encounters, what shines through the most is a mega-talent who writes with emotional truth and pure heart. The queen of the sex and shopping novel remains on her jewelled throne. — J. J. Salem, author of TAN LINES
