Five authors are slotted for publication on a publisher's coveted fall list, but there will be only one bestseller. A hilarious look at the publishing world.
There's something magical about Billy Nolan. It's not just that the Brooklyn bar owner is wickedly handsome; it is also that any woman he dates and dumps - and he dumps them all - immediately goes on to marry the next man she meets. But Kate Jameson is immune to his charms. She left Brooklyn for upward-mobility in Manhattan at the first chance she got, and she's not about to fall for some cad from the old neighborhood. But when her best friend Bina's engagement is broken off, Kate hatches a plan: all she has to do is get Billy to date and dump Bina. Then they'll wait for Bina's wayward fiance to return for the magic to happen. But the one thing Kate hasn't counted on is how Billy feels about the whole plot - and how she begins to feel about Billy. She may have changed her style, but her roots are showing.

Three first wives who have all been jilted by their husbands and replaced with younger versions band together to take revenge on the men who wronged them.
This, the ultimate Hollywood scandal tale, brings to life three very different women--unknowns, overnight stars. Each has a secret which could destroy them.
