A Recipe for Romance: Take one divorced secretary who's written a steamy novel under an alter-ego; mix in a publishing magnate who can't stand her book; add a dash of a wisecracking best friend/agent, and stir in a sultry editor who believes the aforementioned author is a male--then throw in a wise red tabby (Vinegar) and a sultry Siamese (Chocolate) and you have the makings of a good, old fashioned screwball romantic comedy -- Chocolate and Vinegar! Casey Catherine Farraday is a divorced secretary whose raunchy novel, Steam Heat, has been picked up by McCarron Publishing. The first trouble is -- the only way she could get it published was to pretend a man wrote it. The second trouble is -- the company President, Preston Frawley, feels the book hits a little too close to home to suit him and wants to quash it. However, Preston's vice president of acquisitions and former lover, Celia Dayton, has developed a crush on Steam Heat's author, K.C. Starling, even though she's never met "him" and pushes the book through for publication. In the meantime, Preston is unaware that his next door neighbor, a lovely blonde on whom he has a crush is Casey Farraday, aka K. C. Starling, the author of Steam Heat! Sparks begin to fly when the couple meet, each unaware of the other's true identity or intentions -- Casey's plan to substitute a dipsomaniac actor as K.C. Starling -- and Preston's plan to takeover control of the company and terminate Steam Heat's publication! The tail (excuse me, tale) as narrated by Casey's pet cat, Vinegar, follows the couple's misadventures through courtship, to discovering each other's real identity, to the inevitable breakup and finally--what else--a happy ending! In the tradition of Runaway Bride and You've Got Mail, Chocolate and Vinegar is a light romantic tale of mixed-up identities, lies, deception and the age-old battle of the sexes.
