Only she knows that Lombardi's billionaire backer, Jacques Necker, has set her up, hoping to manipulate her into chaperoning her models to Paris, and meeting him face-to-face. GLAMOUR... But Justine isn't about to play his game. She dispatches these three sensational girls--the classic Minnesota blond, the African-American goddess, and the moody Tennessee redhead--in care of her second-in-command, fiery, droll Francesca Severino.
