With a heart full of dreams, Sallie Coleman leaves Texas and heads west determined to get as far from the squalor of her dirt poor beginnings. With its shifting sands, smoky saloons and bingo palaces, Las Vegas seems like a paradise. A paradise where an extraordinary twist of fate makes Sallie the most powerful businesswoman in Nevada.

Suddenly she is rich. With the help of Philip Thornton, the handsome Bostonian, Sallie is transformed into Vegas's most elegant first lady. Philip gives her two sons, Simon and Ash. One will bring her great joy, the other, heartbreak.

Enter Fanny Logan…the small-town beauty from Pennsylvania who finds her destiny in Las Vegas, where she creates a multi-million dollar clothing empire and finds happiness and heartbreak as the wife of Ash Thornton, and the daughter Sallie never had…Ash Thornton, whose life centers around his greatest triumph—Babylon, the magnificent casino that will lead to his downfall…Simon Thornton, whose search for meaning takes him to the battlefields of World War II, the trading rooms of Wall Street and finally back to Nevada where he falls in love with the wife of his rival.

Fern Michaels creates another memorable family and series of books as she did with the Texas series—Texas Rich, Texas Heat, Texas Fury, and Texas Sunrise.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 1/12/2013

    " -- A suprisingly historical fiction novel. Not a lovey dovey romance at all. Read it practically all at once. This one is worth your time! -- "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Beasley | 12/16/2012

    " Really loved this book. The story moved along and I liked the characters. The story was full of strong women. About family, trust , honesty and helping others. Really looking forward to the other 2 books in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 missemmamm | 9/13/2012

    " I got about 100 pages into this book & realized I've read it before, doh, I can only imagine it was during my lack of sleep phase in early 09 or that I had borrowed it from the library years ago. At any rate, it's good but a bit soapy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 6/24/2012

    " This book could have easily been 2-3 seperate books, and it would have been more enjoyable. I love Fern Michaels works, but this one was just way too long! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica N. | 5/19/2012

    " I got 7/8th of the way through this book, and just gave up. I'm surprised I made it that far. It was mindless soap-opera drivel ... and not even compelling drivel. Just plain too much drama. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanette | 12/28/2011

    " I thoroughly enjoyed it. The way these young women acquired their money, the good they did with it-helping their families & the community. Morals were lacking; but helped the storyline. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Polly | 9/17/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 8/26/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 8/24/2011

    " A lot going on in this book. It probably could have been made a trilogy by itself. I don't like when too much is shoved into one book. I did enjoy parts of the story line though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 7/3/2011

    " I have started from 3rd trilogy in series which I loved greatly. Now I am going back to 1st trilogy and found that this first book in series is very long, great writing, keeps your attention, but just way too long for one book. There are enough material in one book for 2-3 books. "
