Overview

Kim Hendricks is a legendary American war reporter and famous novelist, a man's man and a woman's man--bold, exuberant, confident and intensely romantic.

Nicole Redon is a designer who creates a style that liberates an entire generation of women. She is beautiful, charming and intelligent but she is haunted by a desperate secret.

Brought together by a magical, love-at-first-sight encounter on the sidewalks of Paris, Kim and Nicole embark on a daring and passionate romance that transforms both their lives. Their bold choices change the world forever and their influence continues until today. They are the first contemporaries, the last romantics.

Meet the Author

Ruth Harris is a New York Times and Amazon bestselling author and a Romantic Times award winner for “best contemporary.” Her entertaining, intelligent novels have been praised by critics and sold millions of copies in hard cover, paperback, and ebook editions, and were prominent selections of leading book clubs including the Literary Guild and the Book Of The Month Club.

Ruth writes about strong, savvy, witty women who do their best to succeed and, when sometimes they don’t get what they want, they find something even better along the way. Critics have compared Ruth to Nora Ephron and Joan Didion and called her books  "brilliant," “steamy,” "stylishly written," ”richly plotted,” “first-class entertainment” and “a sure thing.”

It's no surprise Ruth is a writer. She grew up in a house filled with books, magazines and newspapers. Her Mom was an RN who had a trove of big-city hospital stories—some funny, some sad, some touching—and told them with great style. Her Dad loved words, word play and language and he is remembered by those who knew him as "always reading."

As a girl, Ruth wanted to be a professional ice skater. In her teens, she wanted to be a lawyer—a summer job in a law office cured her of that delusion! After college, she got a beginner's job in publishing and her career path—first as an editor and then as an author—was set.
