Ms Taken Identity

Ms Taken Identity (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Student Mitch Samuel's life isn't going to plan: his girlfriend has just walked out on him (to be fair, he did forget to pick her up from the airport); his estranged father has landed in the hospital and his literary ambitions are dashed once and for all after his umpteenth rejection letter. However, when he meets Katharine Longwell, the queen of women's fiction and she seems to like him, he senses an opportunity for literary riches, if not reputation. He tells her that his female cousin is an aspiring chick-lit author and secures a promise that she'll help said cousin get published. The only problem is, he needs to come up with a manuscript - fast. He buys every woman's magazine and watches Oprah endlessly on DVD but he still can't quite get inside a woman's head. Then his roommate suggests that Mitch sign up for sister's dance class. Mitch attends the first class as an alter ego, "Jason." Problem is, after a class or two, Mitch/Jason is hooked - both on dancing and the charming Marie, who has no idea that he knows her brother or the real reason he's come to the class. Suddenly, his novel-writing project is becoming a lot more than he bargained for . . .
