A modern Manhattan fairy tale starring . . .
Tracy Connor, a New York City career woman who loves her job and classic movies.
Mike Connor, her estranged husband, a small-town Mayor who loves his wife but doesn’t seem to have enough time to see her.
The handsome stranger, Philip Adams, who lives downstairs from the small sublet Tracy has temporarily moved into. He’s charming, funny, and looks a lot like her very favorite screen icon, Cary Grant.
Dating Cary Grant is a romance all about New York city career woman Tracy Connor struggling with real issues with her real guy, her husband of six years, Mayor Mike Connor of Cukor, Connecticut. Tracy is a smart woman, but some of her problems with relationships are partially caused by her unrealistic expectations that real guys should—and can— behave like matinee idols. Mike’s problems are also caused by the fact that he’s such a great guy and overextends his heart, and his appointment calendar, to every constituent, friend, or stray animal who crosses his path.
Tracy is also being stressed by a TV reality show intent on showcasing Tracy and Mike’s personal life, as well as the imminent takeover of her employer, a small, private television station, by a billionaire with unlimited funds and no taste.
Dating Cary Grant considers just how selfless a man needs to be to meet his wife’s expectations, and just how honest a woman must be with herself about what she’s willing to give, and give-up. And Cary Grant is along to help prove that any woman’s search for ‘Mr. Perfect ‘ might take her to a surprising place to find him.
“I rarely gush over a book these days. I read at least one, sometimes two books a day and so I can be hard to move. But, this one really got to me… you do not want to miss… Molly Harper.” Clue Review
About the author:
I’ve been writing fiction my whole life…first story at five was about a lost bunny asking all his fellow creatures if they could tell him what kind of animal he was… “Am I a deer, Mrs. Bambi…Am I a cat, Mrs. Kitten?”
From there it was bad teen poetry, stab-in-the-dark attempts at ‘real’ literature (which I very rightly shredded) and then college, marriage, blessed motherhood, several moves around this great country of ours while I wrote, studied and submitted. I was first published by Harlequin Intrigue’s line of romantic suspense as ‘M. L. Gamble’ and wrote seven books for them.
My books are always relationship stories about women and the men they love and the friends they hold dearest, but they’ve also always had a little touch of something else, a mystery here, a ghost there, something extraordinary that gave the folks in my imagined world a little extra to deal with. Secret Sister, a woman’s fiction novel, has a little touch of paranormal.
I am an unabashed romantic…so even though I write plots heavy with big ideas, romance is always front and center. My characters Cruz Morales, Molly Harper and Ben Delmonico are a typical triangle with some atypical issues to deal with in Duets, a novella in the anthology Once and Forever.
