Some Like Them Rich

Shirley Hailstock, Kensington/Dafina, $6.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-0-7582-3145-1
Prolific author Hailstock (Nine Months with Thomas) delivers a thoughtful, sensual examination of people who think they can escape their hearts. Smarting from her lover's rejection, Amber Nash gives up on love and decides to spend the summer in Martha's Vineyard pretending to be rich so she can snare a wealthy husband. Don Randall, manager of a nearby hotel, gets Amber's blood pumping, but she's not looking for a middle-class working man. Little does she know that he's actually wealthy hotel chain heir Sheldon St. Romaine, who's trying to both turn the hotel around and convince his father he's matured. Sheldon struggles with hiding his identity from a woman who thrills him like no other. Hailstock's characters and situations feel vividly real, and her portrayals of African-American professional women looking for love and security will resonate with all readers. (Mar.)
