A passionate lover. A jealous husband. A gun in a Tiffany bag.

The Married Woman--A shy wallflower, Carlys Webber transforms herself into a beautiful woman and attracts the attention of brilliant, multimillionaire Kirk Arnold. When he proposes, she agrees to marry him but, when Kirk changes from a loving husband to a distant stranger, will Carlys risk her precious marriage for a few moments of stolen passion with another man, the irresistibly handsome and sensuous architect, George Kouras?

The Single Woman--Wildly stylish, phenomenally successful, Jade Mullen survives deception and divorce. She vows never to be betrayed again even though, when she falls in love with George, he warns her he might not be faithful unless she commits to him. What will she do when George asks her the one question she doesn't want to answer?

The Husband--Carlys's White Knight and devoted husband, Kirk Arnold struggles to forget the dark secrets of his tormented past. He achieves one dazzling success after another--until what looks like failure becomes a matter of life and death. Will he succumb to the tragedy that destroyed his family or will his marriage to Carlys survive the crisis and become even stronger?

The Lover--George Kouras fought prejudice and rose from humble beginnings to a secure place at the top of his profession but loses the child he adores along the way. Renouncing convention, he and Jade fall madly in love and think they have discovered a new way to live happily ever after. They are happy the way they are, but what will happen when Jade discovers a shocking secret about herself and finds out about him and Carlys?

Set in the glittering world of fashion and in high-powered executive suites, in run-down houses, ethnic neighborhoods and sedate suburbs, Husbands and Lovers is about men and women losing--and finding themselves--in the America of the gritty 1970s and glitzy 1980s.
