Overview

Lovers is pure Krantz, an  intoxicating dance of love lost, stolen, and found  among women and men who lure each other with potent  combinations of money, talent, ambition, and  passion. Chief among them is irresistible Gigi Orsini,  the high-spirited, merry, adventurous creature who  grew up into enchanting womanhood in Scruples Two.  Now Gigi is working as a copywriter in a new Los  Angeles advertising agency, with her creative  "teammate," David Melville, a brilliant young  art director who joins her in seeking new  accounts. The agency is headed by dashing Archie Rourke,  humorous Byron Bernheim and the severely difficult  beauty, Victoria Frost, daughter of the famed  Millicent Frost Caldwell who, with her husband Angus  Caldwell, owns one of New York's largest  advertising agencies. Ben Winthrop, a proper Bostonian and  an enormously successful mall builder, attempts to  capture Gigi's quicksilver affections, although  his fierce contenders for the same prize include  both David Melville and the dominating film director,  Zach Nevsky. Meanwhile, Billy Winthrop Ikehorn  Orsini Elliott, the unforgettably impulsive heroine  of Scruples, and her new husband,  the great charmer, Spider Elliott, are busy with  their own fascinating lives, as are Gigi's father,  canny film producer Vito Orsini, and her best  friend, the ravishing Sasha Nevsky, none of whom can  be forgotten from Scruples and  Scruples Two. Lovers  completes all the stories set in motion in the  first two novels, yet it stands entirely on its own  as a slice of life in the exciting years of 1983  and 1984.
