THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!
Promises and betrayals. A gun in a Tiffany bag.Carlys Webber's sad and insecure beginnings are past but her future is threatened when her husband faces the first failure of his dazzling career. His lust for revenge transforms him into a bitter stranger and propels Carlys into the arms of another man. Their explosive desires collide in a life and death confrontation -- with consequences that can shatter their almost-perfect lives.
"A brilliant book...tough, trenchant, chic and ultra-sophisticated...few will fail to be entertained and few will be able to forget what Harris has to say about men and women and the games people play."
--Fort Worth Star-Telegram
""Sharply and stylishly written...without sermonizing, Harris manages to write with intellect, insight and humor about the good, bad and ugly aspects of being a woman... And while her focus is on women, Harris gives some well-thought time to the men in their lives [and] examines the meaning of sexuality, love, success and personal happiness."
"Harris's empathy for her women, especially the ugly duckling who makes herself into a swan, adds a satisfying dimension of reality. Steamy and fast-faced, you will be spellbound."
"Harris is dangerously close to moving beyond the reef that separates the lagoon of popular fiction from deeper waters. With a pen like the rapier of Zorro, Harris's prose is sharp, her eye keen..."
--Christian Science Monitor
"Harris relates the games of love and war in a fast-forward, high octane style. HUSBANDS AND LOVERS deserves a large audience."
--New Woman magazine
