Publisher Comments:

Romeo, oh-no! Romeo

Juliet is already wondering whether her live-in boyfriend Will has lost his lust for life — and for her — when tragedy strikes: He stands her up. On Valentine's Day. Then some jerk in a fancy car splashes her with icky London rain water, takes a good, hard look at her, and drives away. What's worse he was gorgeous, the kind of guy you dream would sweep you off your feet...or at least remember you on Valentine's Day. On top of having to win a big advertising account at work it's a wonder Juliet doesn't collapse into a puddle herself.

The course of true love never did run smooth

To Juliet's surprise, the mystery driver turns out to be an adman named Sykes — her competition for the hot account — and he's awfully sorry about the splashing. So sorry that he whisks Juliet away for a romantic weekend in Verona, the storied home of her Shakespearean namesake. A funny thing happens, though. When Juliet gets back, Will's all sweet again and Sykes pitches an ad campaign suspiciously similar to Juliet's. Suddenly it's time for fair Juliet to decide whether she and Sykes are meant-to-be star-crossed lovers — or whether Romeo has been right by her side all along.

Synopsis:

Juliet is in a comfortable relationship with Will, but she can't help but feel like they are friends who have sex (and bicker from time to time). When she meets the sexy, dark-eyed Adonis from a rival advertising agency, she is sorely tempted. But will weighing her options in the love department leave her with no options at all?

Synopsis:

Already optioned for a feature film, this romantic comedy set in England and Italy offers an immensely entertaining, contemporary twist on Romeo and Juliet. Juliet has a successful career, but the best thing that can be said about her romantic relationship with Will is that it's... comfortable. She can't help feeling that they're less like lovers and more like friends who have sex and bicker from time to time. So when she meets a sexy, dark-eyed Adonis from a rival advertising firm, she's more than a little tempted. As she searches for an escape from conjugal contentment into passionate paradise, she bounces from London to Yorkshire to Verona in a hilarious farce whose dramatis personae include an Irish bookie, an American single mother, and an octogenarian widower. Is there a romantic pot of gold at the end of the lingerie-and-roses rainbow? Juliet's quest to find out forces her to reconsider what's truly important in life. Calling Romeo will delight anyone who has ever wondered if the grass really is greener on the other side.
