Upon meeting the chancellor's son, Thomas Wao, Isabella Tocador, a Filipina freshman at the prestigious university Zappalinal, decides to join an all-Asian business fraternity. As a challenge to the fraternity, Thomas offers a full scholarship to the graduate school of his choice to any man with whom Isabella falls in love. In a private e-mail to the male fraternity members, Thomas writes: "Who knew I could become a sap for you guys? Maybe I might be in love with this girl. Maybe I want to ruin her. Maybe I'm interested in seeing what becomes with her. I want to dare one man from this fraternity to make her fall in love with him. As son of the chancellor, as you all know, I would like one of you saps to fall in love with this girl and then maybe I can pull some strings with my father to see if you may go to the graduate school of your choice full-ride. No joke." The result is a sexy comedy about young college students who combine love and competition until it becomes a farce. And what happens to the sweet and idealistic Isabella, who must deal not only with the challenges of academics, but with a number of lusty young men who refuse to take no for an answer? Is there a happy ending in store for An Asian Story? About the Author: Leslie M. Arimas is from Salinas, California.
