Overview

Can the Big Apple deliver on not one, not two, but three more love stories in its already storied history?

DeMarco's Café

After her first year in law school Dayna DeMarco returns to her family's café in SoHo to face twin worries: her father in the hospital after a heart attack and the café's financial problems.

Bo Grisham, a charming musician new to the neighborhood, is in a band currently playing nightly in DeMarco's Café. He likes what he sees in Dayna and makes a play for her.

Although Dayna's no push-over, she's up for a bit of distraction with Bo. But, ultimately, she knows a bad bet when she sees one. Especially when she discovers that he's aware of the source of the café's financial problems and may even have played a part in them.

When Dayna's father's health takes a turn for the worse, Bo sees Dayna's grace and strength under pressure. He's long been an 'easy come, easy go' kind of guy, but now he recognizes Dayna as a keeper.

So, he takes a gamble – literally and figuratively – to set things straight with her. Will it pay off?

Love After All

Laurel Jennings, a long-divorced New York University professor, needs a date to her thirty-fifth college reunion at Duke University.

Gino Milano, recent widower and highly successful New York restaurateur, needs a date to fend off the advances of women at his own weekend of fundraising events. These involve cancer, since his beloved Rosie died of the disease.

Laurel and Gino are from different worlds and have very different experiences with love and family life. When they team up to help each other out, Laurel thinks things are going well when Gino doesn't. And Gino thinks things are going well when Laurel doesn't. At one point it looks like Gino's trip to Laurel's reunion is off. Then it's on again. And all is going surprisingly well at the beautiful Duke reunion in glorious April until Laurel's ex ruins everything – at least as far as Laurel is concerned.

Back in New York City can Gino and Laurel get on the same page and get it together?

The Hard Bargain

New York billionaire Arthur Wexler needs a faux fiancée for one Sunday afternoon and one afternoon only. Actor Carla Pereira happily accepts a hefty paycheck for a few hours work. However, she plays her part so well that her role unexpectedly gets an extended run: it now includes a week-long Caribbean cruise on the Wexler yacht with friends and family.

Carla's no dummy. She knows that, as a poor girl from Hoboken, she'll never land a permanent part in the Wexler family cast. So, upon returning to the city after the cruise, she makes herself scarce. She did her best not to fall in love with Arthur on the cruise – and mostly succeeded – but now she's back in the real world and attending to the broken pieces of her miserable family life.

Arthur is surprised when Carla ghosts him, and he now has to confront his own feelings. When he does, he realizes he has to figure out a way to track down the woman whose stage name is Carla Pereira.

Even if he can find her and establish a relationship, there's still the pesky matter of what to say about the hoax Arthur and Carla perpetrated on the Wexler family when they first introduced her by a completely different name.

So, just who is this Carla person, and what is she hiding?

About the Author

Love, language, adventure … out of the ordinary. Julie Tetel Andresen has written over 30 romances, bringing love stories to life in all time periods. She is Professor of Linguistics at Duke University. And she has traveled the world from Brazil to Burma and lived for extended periods in France, Germany, and Vietnam. She spends summers in Romania.

Before moving to publish exclusively on the Amazon Kindle library, Julie was published by Fawcett Crest, Warner Books, and Harlequin. Her novels cross many sub-genres of romance, including mystery, paranormal, contemporary, BDSM, motorcycle club, and historical fiction.

As a child, Julie had a passion for playing the piano, and transferred that passion as an adult into writing romance novels and scholarly books about language. For Julie, writing essays in foreign languages is like playing scales and arpeggios as a warm-up exercise for writing in English.

Julie also draws inspiration from practicing yoga on a regular basis. Learning new grammatical forms is similar to trying new mental asanas: can she get her leg behind her head in Romanian or get into full lotus in Vietnamese? No? Well, then, how about triangle pose or half-lotus?
