From age ten, Harry has had just one ambition—to find the one girl for him. Forty-three women and twenty-odd years later, he is still looking. He doesn’t ask for much: just a beautiful intellectual who doesn’t mind his constant infidelity.
Harry’s roommate Gerrard did once find True Love—but he didn’t realize it until the day she left him. Only two women have met his exacting criteria, and he’s not hopeful that he’ll find another. Even if he does, he’s not sure he can trust her not to grow old eventually.
And then Harry and Gerrard meet Alice.
Alice is the perfect woman. She’s the only woman in the world Harry and Gerrard can agree on. Unfortunately, she seems to like both of them, and neither will stop at anything to win her for good.

Harry doesn't ask for much in a woman. Just the following:
"You should be between 5'6" and 5'7" with hair that looks as if blonde and brunette had put their heads together and came up with a better color. Your coif would be natural, about 12" long, neither curly nor straight but with an amazing wave to it that would come to life as you flicked it over your shoulder.
Your body should look like Bardot's but be capable of suggesting Hepburn's.
Your skin should be blemish-free, apart from perhaps a charming beauty spot. It should have a texture to make alabaster look like a quattro formaggio, although you wouldn't give a damn for cosmetics - apart from when you wanted to dress like a tart, which would be often.
Most of all you need kind, intelligent eyes. When I say most of all, I mean it's no good without the rests of the package too. Plenty of dogs (the sort that bark) have kind, intelligent eyes, but you take my meaning.About the Author:
