Stella Fain has a rule for men she likes: make them wait ... But the gorgeous Jay proves an exception to the rule when he bowls Stella off her Prada wedges at a press junket on the Cote d'Azur. He might seem to have everything going for him, but Stella is about to realize that there's only thing worse than having a boyfriend with no money ... and that's having one with too much.
Jetset lifestyles can be fabulous, but Stella's career as a journalist isn't something she wants to jeopardize for any man, no matter how filthy rich or gorgeous. And then there's her father - a six-times-married prime slice of Alpha Male with a grudge against inherited wealth ... and Jay.
There's no denying money makes the world go round and diamonds are a girl's best friend, but they don't make the path to love any easier to tread. With or without the Prada wedges.

"At last we've found her, the female Seinfeld. Warm, witty, wise and well-dressed, Alderson is the haute couture of humour." (Kathy Lette)
"Stella writes about luxury for a London newspaper and enjoys the perks of the job. When she meets Jay at a designer opening on the Cote d'Azur, her life is turned upside down. Stella is the level-headed first-born daughter of a famous architect who is on his sixth wife and umpteenth child, so she's cautious around men. Nicky Talacko juggles accents, from British to Australian, from Boston to Greek, as Stella and her half-siblings enjoy the crazy life of their patched-together family. Talacko also adds spirit and intrigue to the dangerous world of celebrity reporting. This production is sure to entice lovers of chick lit to listen to every lovely syllable." (AudioFile Magazine)
