Three smart, independent single women are being driven to distraction by the same maddening man during the same seven months . . . Randall Hollis is rich, handsome, and charming - a true-to-life dream-lover. Artist Medora Jackson has loved Randall since college and is now desperately trying to cut him loose . . . which may be far more difficult than she thinks. Ana Reese-Mitchell is a wealthy widow and art collector haunted by the death of her best friend and the specter of her cruel late husband. She hopes that Randall will be her second chance at love. And ambitious graduate student Taylor Benedict is sure he will be the first rung on her ladder to success. A man for all seasons, Randall represents a different romantic illusion to all three. And each will ultimately discover more about him - and herself - than she ever bargained for.
