Description

When Steven Hudson, a wealthy widower in his late sixties, agrees to appear on a reality TV show with a group of beautiful twentysomething gold diggers, romance breaks out where he least expects it. As the head of a somewhat stodgy old-money Wall Street firm, Steven's partners are against his decision to appear on the show, but his children-especially his ne'er-do-well son, Henry-support him. While Henry is smart-he's invented many clever applications for computers-he's lazy, and has never had to work a day in his life. But if Henry can help out his father with the TV show, and end up with some of the girls who are eliminated from the show each week, how can that hurt?

When Steven least expects it, love jumps up and smacks him between the eyes. Jessica James-the TV show's producer-is about thirty-nine, and a single mother with a teenage son. But unlike the siliconed and perfectly toned babes vying for Steven's love-and wallet-she is a real woman who has lived life and knows what she wants. To her great surprise, Jessie discovers she wants Steven too, despite the thirty years separating them. But not before Steven is run through the mill of hot young things who are exhaustingly energetic between the sheets. Even Henry is in for an awakening when he discovers that there is more to life than rich food, expensive drink, fine clothes, fast cars, and gorgeous women. Everyone is fair game for Cupid's arrows.

display_descriptionMuch to his surprise, and the chagrin of his Wall Street partners, Steven Hudson, a very wealthy widower, agrees to appear on the new reality show Trophy Bride. Plucked from his lonely Central Park-view penthouse and dropped into a frothy mix of stunning models, actresses, and athletes, Steven's sober life quickly veers out of control. Lured from his solitary existence by Jessica James, the smart and sexy producer of Trophy Bride, Steven is smitten and plays along with the TV madness to stay close to Jessie, taping "dates" on his fabulous private jet, the breathtaking slopes of Vail, and his incredible yacht-struggling to show Jessie that he's more than just a zillionaire. But with an engagement ring on her finger from her hot young fiancé, is Steven too late? Funny, sexy, and at times deeply moving, this debut novel has made waves in bedrooms and boardrooms all across the nation.
