About this title

Synopsis:

The author of How to Cook a Tart turns her wickedly incisive eye to the only subject that Americans are more obsessed with than food: sex.

Jack Carter, born-again virgin and bestselling romance author, has a problem, and her name is Molly. Foisted upon him by his sister, Molly has just been fired from her high-paying management position for sexually harassing her male assistant. She's also been evicted from her apartment, and has landed-for just a few weeks, she promises-in Jack's Los Angeles town house. Worse yet, she decides to take advantage of her new environment and try her hand at writing romances herself, using the pseudonym Molly Desire. Molly's novel is racy and explicit, and blows the covers off Jack's tender and traditional plots and relationships. Just how far will their professional (and personal) competition go? Add to the mix a sister who thinks she's not getting enough, a niece who's about to get too much, and a mother who is in danger of being kicked out of her retirement home for inappropriate behavior, and you get Nina Killham's trademark wit and insight into the battle of the sexes.

About the Author:

Nina Killham was born in Washington, D.C., and lived overseas much of her childhood. After graduating from the College of William and Mary, she wrote about food for the Washington Post, and worked as an assistant at Columbia Pictures. She lives in London with her husband and their two young children. Her first novel, How to Cook a Tart, was also published by Bloomsbury.
