Love and the City

Get lost in three charmingly modern Big Apple romances from Julie Tetel Andresen, updated for this newly released trilogy edition:

DEMARCO’S CAFE
After her first year in law school, Dayna DeMarco returns to her family’s café in SoHo, suspecting financial problems. New to the neighborhood is Bo Grisham, a charming musician who makes a play for her.

Dayna is pretty sure he spells trouble, and Bo is pretty sure he’ll soon be moving on. Neither can predict how events concerning the café’s future will change their hearts.

LOVE AFTER ALL
On the eve of college reunion season, a reserved divorcee and a passionate widower cross paths in the lobby of their building. Faced with the prospect of being the only one of her friends to attend their thirty-fifth college reunion alone, Laurel impulsively asks the first man she sees. Gino, intrigued by her candor, agrees to help — but dismisses any possibility of romantic interest.

In need of help of his own, Gino offers Laurel a deal: he will accompany her to her reunion at Duke if she helps him fend off the advances of women at his own weekend of fundraising events. Initial doubts give way to playful moments and personal revelations as matters come to a head on a beautiful April weekend at Duke University. Can both of them find love after all they have been through?

THE HARD BARGAIN
The curtain goes up on an unforgettable contemporary when Arthur Wexler is forced to protect his birthright after his aunt triggers “the marriage clause.”

An old-fashioned clause in the Wexler corporate documents requires Arthur to either get married within the year or forfeit his inheritance. With the help of his best friend – a theater producer – Arthur hires Carla Pereira, a talented but currently unemployed actress, to play his fiancée-for-a-day. Carla performs perfectly, but real life doesn’t come with a script, and Arthur and Carla have to adapt to unforeseen circumstances.

When one simple dinner turns into an invitation for Carla to join the family on a week-long Caribbean cruise, the question becomes: How long can Arthur keep up the charade before the lines start to blur between acting and real feelings?
