Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Knight wanted. Must have shiny armor and own horse, preferably white.

When it comes to romance, are magic, fireworks, and a dashing knight in shining Armani really too much to ask? Apparently so, since Kate Hetherington has yet to find an appropriate mate in all of London. Her lifelong friends (and confirmed pragmatists) Sally and Tom tease her endlessly about her hopeless romanticism. But Kate knows that shes right to want her own fairy tale.

After stumbling upon an old tome titled The Hopeless Romantics Handbook, Kate decides to give its advice a whirl. Incredibly, the book lives up to its money-back guarantee, because before Kate can say “Cinderella” she meets Joe Rogers, a drop-dead-gorgeous American actor. Frankly, hes perfect-and Kate thinks she might have finally found The One. He certainly has the muscles required to sweep her off her feet. But Sal and Tom are less thrilled with Kates dreamboat. Are they just jealous, or do they know something about love that isnt in Kates handbook? Kates pretty sure that finding true love isnt supposed to alienate you from your friends, but what she doesnt know is that her real knight is still waiting for her-and hes closer than she ever imagined.

Review:

"The latest from Townley (Learning Curves, etc.) features Kate Hetherington, interior stylist at London low-end makeover TV show Future: Perfect. Kate has come up empty in her search for true love; longtime friends Sal and Tom think she's unrealistic, but their own solutions aren't terrific: Sal has settled for a sensible marriage to Ed, a financier, while Tom, a surgeon, plays the field and avoids commitment at all costs. Desperate after an embarrassing speed dating incident, Kate buys The Hopeless Romantic's Handbook on eBay. Though the book, excerpted amusingly throughout, turns out to be chauvinistic and out of date, Kate soon she meets Joe Rogers, an American actor bartending while he attempts to jumpstart his career in London. Kate follows the book to the letter-putting off sex, showering Joe with attention, flattering his ego-and it works. Kate's bliss affects everyone around her, with unexpected consequences, in this optimistic and satisfying read." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In Townley's latest hilarious and heartfelt novel, Kate thinks she has found the answer to her troubles: a handbook for hopeless romantics like her. But when her budding romance isn't quiet what she had hoped, Kate is left wondering if true love is a myth.
