OBJECT OF HIS DESIRE
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Multicultural
Macy Glenn has a great life in New York; she's even in line for partner at the law firm where she works. Then she meets Jordan Blake, a cosmetics mogul whose company is in need of legal help. Jordan is both a blessing and a curse for Macy—she finds him very attractive, but also very controlling. He even arranges to have her relocated to California without discussing the matter with her first. From there, they embark on a trip to Italy to try to solve the murder of Jordan's brother, which may be associated with the Mafia and Jordan's estranged family.
In this plot-driven suspense, Arthur takes the reader on a richly described trip to Italy, though at times the description overrides the plot and, hence the narrative never obtains a sense of real urgency. Still, the interesting (albeit slower-moving) plot is filled with surprises to keep readers interested. (Aug., 260 pp., $8.95)
