BLUE-JEANED PRINCE, originally published under the byline Vivian Leiber.Jewell Whittington grew up rich, spoiled and headstrong. Clay DeVries grew up… poor, hard-working and so much in love that it hurt--particularly since the woman he loved couldn't even be bothered to acknowledge his existence.Years later, Clay is still scrambling but doing well enough that he's been able to buy the local garage where he has worked for ten years and, in the middle of a typical Southern summer cloudburst, he stops to help a stranded motorist and is once again stung by the haughty indifference of the woman he still loves from afar--until he discovers that her father has died and left her penniless. His rescue attempt is stymied by the fact that she still expects everything to be handed to her on a silver platter, even though she doesn't have the means to pay for it. Physical attraction can only carry you so far when the differences in expectations are so vast and even a reversal of fortune that restores Jewell to her family home and wealth only accentuates the differences between them.They both want to marry but Clay can't stand her life of wealth, empty friendships and meaningless activity and he can't believe that she can live any other way. True love never runs smooth but is there even a ray of hope that two such disparate lives can come together?

Stanley Noseworthy is, at best, a serial monogamist. At worst, a faithless rake. Now his record-breaking long-term lover ("1001 better-than-Arabian… nights") Nina is fed up with his "inimitable bull%#$#" and threatening to end their relationship. "Show us there is some good in you," Stanley's best friend urges. "Show us there is a brain." But Stanley's decisions do not tend to be made by his brain. He has profoundly mixed feelings about losing Nina, for he is nothing if not a profoundly mixed (up) fellow. Stanley is either a dedicated artist or a posturing fraud, a charming rogue or a shallow lothario, tragic victim or pathetic loser--or all of the above. ("Vote Online!" Stanley might well say to this, for he is always prepared to satirize his own life as sharply as the life around him.) Meanwhile, Stanley's beloved artists' cooperative, The "Hotel Beaux-Arts" (hence Bozarts) to its inhabitants, is also under threat. Since its endowment a quarter-century ago by the august Canterbury Institute of Technology, the "Bozarts" has had a frequently glorious, always rambunctious, character-rich history. Lately, mysteriously, it has been dwindling toward extinction. Stanley (who may or may not be paranoid) fears the reason for this is either that the Institute wants its building back for more profitable use, or that George W. Bush has declared an end to Art and Thought in America--or both of the above.

Bea lleva toda una vida buscando un hombre que cumpla con los «estándares Crespo»: alto, rubio, ojos azules, simpático y...… highlander. La segunda entrega de la serie «El club de las Tulipanes» creada por Marion S. Lee y Lucía de Vicente, ¡no te puedes perder la historia de Bea! Es Carnaval en Cádiz y para la fiesta de inauguración del Hotel-Palacio Los Tulipanes, Beatriz Crespo y sus socias han preparado una fiesta de disfraces en la que han puesto todo su esfuerzo e ilusión. En el momento más álgido de la noche, Cameron Brodie, el simpático dueño de un pub escocés local, aparece para solicitar un presupuesto para celebrar allí el congreso anual de la Asociación Escocesa de Cazadores de Mitos Antiguos. Ante tal encargo, que las afianzaría en el marco hostelero de la cuidad, Beatriz trata de diseñar un programa atractivo para los posibles huéspedes. Y para ello, necesitará la ayuda de Cam, que ejercerá de intermediario con la asociación escocesa. Lo que Bea no espera es que, mientras dedica todo su esfuerzo en conseguir que el evento de la asociación de cazadores de mitos se realice en el hotel, el emisario se vuelva todavía más interesante que la tarea que tiene entre manos. Al fin y al cabo, el guapo escocés con alma de gaditano reúne todas esas cualidades que desde siempre ha considerado importantes en un hombre. Lo que al inicio no era más que una relación comercial pronto se convierte en otra que ninguno de los dos espera, pero contra lo que no se les ocurre luchar. Beatriz está cansada de ser desgraciada en el amor y a Cam no parece importarle ser el highlander con el que ella siempre soñó. Ana Álvarez ha dicho sobre la serie...«Presentar esta serie escrita por dos magníficas autoras que, además, son muy queridas para mí, me genera una especial ilusión. Ellas han unido sus esfuerzos y sus estupendas plumas para deleitarnos con unas novelas cercanas y entretenidas, cuyas tramas se desarrollan en Cádiz, una ciudad preciosa y que conozco bien. Por lo tanto, puedo afirmar que la labor de documentación que han llevado a cabo es exhaustiva y minuciosa, como todo lo que suelen realizar. No tengo dudas de que las cuatro novelas que constituyen la serie "El club de las Tulipanes" harán las delicias de los lectores por su calidad literaria y la originalidad de sus argumentos, así como estoy segura de que los carismáticos personajes que en ellas aparecen os enamorarán. ¡Disfrutadlas!»Ana Álvarez
