Nicholas Sarkozy was elected President of France with a broken heart. Shortly after he took office, his second wife, Ceceila, left him for another man. He sat brooding alone by night in the Presidential Palace. Though on top of the world, and one of the most powerful men in Europe, he felt very much alone. Sick of his own company, he asked a friend to arrange a dinner party — and Carla Bruni was included on the guest list. A former supermodel and chart-topping singer-songwriter, Carla had a reputation as a man-eater: and she dined on the most exclusive Cordon Bleu. Her former suitors and boyfriends inlcluded Eric Clapton, Mick Jagger, Primer Minister Laurent Fabius and billionaire Donald Trump. But more than wealth and artistic brilliance, 'I want a man with nuclear power', she said: and Sarkozy had his finger on the button. The two flirted all night: and their first private date came twnety-four hours later. Within a few months, the President of France had a new finacee. Based on exclusive interviews with Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and many of the French elite close to both her and the President, this is the true and previously untold story of Europe's most glamorous couple. Read of how they met, fell instantly in love, and played a cat and mouse game with the world press before marrying in secret, to the amazement of the French people. A bestseller in France, this is the definitive account of the world's most gripping and dramatic modern tale of true romance.
