9780446506182: Ms. Taken Identity

PhD candidate Mitch Samuel's life isn't going exactly according to plan: his girlfriend just dumped him (to be fair, he did forget to pick her up at the airport), his estranged father has landed in the hospital, and his literary masterpiece-one part Shakespeare, one part Steinbeck, and all parts lyrical epic-has been rejected for the umpteenth time.

However, after a chance encounter at Starbucks with the queen of women's fiction- Katharine Longwell-who seems to take a liking to him, he senses an opportunity for literary riches, if not reputation. After telling her that his (imaginary) female cousin is an aspiring chick-lit author, he secures a promise from her that she'll help his "cousin" get published. The only problem is, Mitch needs a manuscript, and fast.

Unfortunately, try as he might to get inside a woman's head by reading Vogue and Cosmo, watching Oxygen and Oprah, nothing seems to work. That's when his roommate Bradley suggests that he try a dance class at the studio where Bradley's sister Marie takes lessons. Self-conscious about his own skills, and unwilling to reveal his true intentions, Mitch attends the first class under an alias: Jason Gallagher, pharmaceutical rep. What could go wrong?

Nothing, except that Mitch/Jason quickly finds himself hooked on dancing, and on the charming Marie. Who has no idea who he really is. Or that he knows her brother. Or why he's there. Suddenly, his novel-writing project is becoming a lot more than he bargained for...

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Student Mitch Samuel s life isn t going to plan: his girlfriend has just walked out on him (to be fair, he did forget to pick her up from the airport); his estranged father has landed in the hospital and his literary ambitions are dashed once and for all after his umpteenth rejection letter. However, when he meets Katharine Longwell, the queen of women s fiction and she seems to like him, he senses an opportunity for literary riches, if not reputation. He tells her that his female cousin is an aspiring chick-lit author and secures a promise that she ll help said cousin get published. The only problem is, he needs to come up with a manuscript - fast. He buys every woman s magazine and watches Oprah endlessly on DVD but he still can t quite get inside a woman s head. Then his roommate suggests that Mitch sign up for sister s dance class. Mitch attends the first class as an alter ego, Jason. Problem is, after a class or two, Mitch/Jason is hooked - both on dancing and the charming Marie, who has no idea that he knows her brother or the real reason he s come to the class. Suddenly, his novel-writing project is becoming a lot more than he bargained for . . . Bookseller Inventory # LVN9780446506182
