1st sight

Paris, L.A., and the world of ready to wear fashion provide rich backdrops for Danielle Steel?s deeply involving story of a gifted designer whose talent and drive have brought her everything?except the ability to erase her past and trust relationships. ? -- ? First Sight is as complex and compelling as modern life itself. Careers, families, histories, losses, duty, obligation, and fear of losing control and getting hurt. It is a tale of daring to take risks, and losing control just enough to have a life, when the opportunity presents itself. When two very different worlds and strong-willed people collide, everything changes in an instant, as they confront the age-old question of whether to lay oneself bare and risk intimacy?or not. Are they brave enough to face what comes next? And will they do it together or apart?

  • "It is love at first sight - in Paris! This is the moving story of Timmie O, a successful woman working in the world of high fashion - both in Paris and New York - who recaptures her passion for life after a horrible setback. Timmie O is a self-made fashion legend who runs a hugely successful business empire. But while her career is a brilliant success, she has trouble connecting with others after a devastating loss and a marriage that fell apart. The men she dates are beautiful and charming, but none of her relationships are meaningful. All of that changes when a surprise bout with appendicitis puts her under the care of French doctor Jean-Charles Vernier. With him, Timmie feels almost immediate sparks - something she no longer thought was possible. The only problem is that he's still married to someone else."@en

A month of endless interviews, parties, and unflagging work and attention to detail at the ready to wear fashion shows twice a year. At the center of the storm is American Timmie O'Neill, whose renowned line, Timmie O, is the embodiment of casual chic in fashion and for the home.

At first, Timmie and Jean-Charles Vernier are only patient and physician, but neither can deny their growing friendship and the electricity that sparks whenever they meet."
