"Absolutely perfect." --Publisher's Weekly  "Terrific!" --Cosmopolitan  "Powerful. A gripping novel." --Women Today Book Club

Husbands And Lovers (Book #2)--Million copy New York Times bestseller! Top 10 on Movers & Shakers! Winner, Best Contemporary, Romantic Times!

Editorial Reviews

Review

DECADES:
"The songs we sang, the clothes we wore, the way we made love. Will have three generations of American women reliving their love lives and recognizing ruefully and with wry affection just what changes have overtaken them." --Publisher's Weekly
"Ruth Harris has re-created both the style and substance of three decades of American life--from the bobby socks and innocence of the Forties, to the crinolines and caution of the Fifties, to the bra-less T-shirts and alienation of the Sixties." --Book-of-the-Month Club

HUSBANDS AND LOVERS:
"A contemporary tale of passion and commitment. Harris is an insightful writer and her empathy for her women, especially the ugly duckling who makes herself into a swan adds a satisfying obbligato of reality." -- Cosmopolitan
"Harris relates the games of love and war in a fast-forward, high octane style.  Deserves a large audience." --New Woman magazine

LOVE AND MONEY:
"Richly plotted and racing to a shocking climax, this glittering novel is first-class entertainment." --NY Times 
"Fast-paced, superior fiction. With a crisply precise and descriptive narrative style and an unerring ear for dialogue, Harris has written a terrifically satisfying 'good read.'" --Fort Lauderdale News Sun-Sentinel

MODERN WOMEN:
"Sharply and stylishly written. Harris treads a fine line between popular fiction and more substantive women's literature and examines the meaning of sexuality, love, success and personal happiness."  --Chicago Sun-Times
"Fiction at its best!"  --New Woman magazine

THE LAST ROMANTICS:
"Delightful, de-lovely and de-vine!" --JRG News
"I love it, I love it! Fantastic, immensely readable." --Cosmopolitan
"Gloriously romantic" --Kirkus

From the Author

I'm a million-copy New York Times and Amazon bestselling author and a Romantic Times award winner for "best contemporary." My "emotional," "entertaining" books have sold millions of copies in hard cover, paperback and ebook editions, been translated into 19 languages, sold in 30 countries, and were prominent selections of leading book clubs including the Literary Guild and the Book Of The Month Club.

I write about strong, savvy, witty women who struggle to succeed and, when sometimes they don't get what they want, find something even better along the way. Critics have compared me to Nora Ephron and Joan Didion and called my books  "brilliant," "steamy," "stylishly written," "richly plotted," "first-class entertainment" and "a sure thing."

With my husband, Michael, I indulge my wild side and write bestselling thrillers (Hooked and Brainwashed, both available in Kindle ebook editions) with vivid characters, international backgrounds and compelling plots. Publisher's Weekly called our thrillers "Slick and sexy with all the sure elements of a big seller written by pros who know how to tell a story." Readers have raved, calling our thrillers "awesome," "gripping," "chilling," "a must-read," and "a real page-turner."

My Mom was an RN who had a trove of big-city hospital stories--some funny, some sad, some touching--and told them with great style. My Dad loved words, word play and language and he is remembered by those who knew him as "always reading." As a girl, I wanted to be a professional ice skater. In my teens, I wanted to be a lawyer--a summer job in a law office cured me! After college, I got a beginner's job in publishing and my career path--first as an editor and then as a writer--was set.

I just loved this entire collection! I was so sad when it was all over. I started the first book and before I knew it I was done with all of them. Wish there was more books to follow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Women's Rise in the Business World May 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fabulous rerun of the 1960s through 1980s and the progress of women in work and careers, Uplifting, inspiring, and a good historic review of the headlines and trends of the times. This book is an emotional trip as well as psychological. The stories are human, the issues real, the psychology of choices and their effects on our futures is addressed. The book is realistic and suspenseful. I could hardly put it down because I wanted to see what would happen to these characters next. The books were not connected in character and plot but any one of them was as good as the others. Fabulous!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable series January 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought the series of books were great. I'm a fan of the author so I'm bias but I loved every story. Well written, suspenseful and full of sex- what couldn't you love? I mainly love the historial and cultural aspect of the books in regard to women and women's rights. It's really quite amazing (speaking as a person born in the 80s and raised in the 90s) the roles of women in society from the 1900-1970s and the almost overnight shift in women behavior. I loved the portrayal of strong, independent women and the men who loved them. Keep on putting them out Mrs. Harris and Ill keep buying!

More About the Author

Ruth Harris is a million-copy New York Times and Amazon bestselling author and a Romantic Times award winner for "best contemporary." Ruth's emotional, entertaining fiction has topped Amazon's prestigious Movers and Shakers list and her highly praised novels have sold millions of copies in hard cover, paperback and ebook editions, been translated into 19 languages, sold in 30 countries, and were prominent selections of leading book clubs including the Literary Guild and the Book Of The Month Club. In their e-book editions, Ruth's novels have been featured on Ereader News Today, Pixel of Ink and Kindle Nation Daily.

Ruth writes about strong, savvy, witty women who struggle to succeed and, when sometimes they don't get what they want, they find something even better along the way. Critics have compared Ruth to Nora Ephron and Joan Didion and called her books  "brilliant," "steamy," "stylishly written," "richly plotted," "first-class entertainment" and "a sure thing." 

With her husband, Michael, Ruth indulges her wild side and writes bestselling thrillers with vivid characters, international backgrounds and compelling plots. Their thrillers have made numerous appearances in the top 3 of Kindle's prestigious Movers & Shakers list;  in the Top 100 in the Kindle Store;  Hooked has appeared continually on three Medical bestseller lists since its publication;  #1 and #2 on two different Political bestseller lists;  #14 on the Thrillers bestseller list.

Publisher's Weekly called Ruth's and Michael's thrillers "Slick and sexy [with] all the sure elements of a big seller written by pros who know how to tell a story." Readers have raved, calling their books "awesome," "gripping," "chilling," "a must-read," and "a real page-turner."

It's no surprise Ruth is a writer. Her Mom was an RN who had a trove of big-city hospital stories--some funny, some sad, some touching--and loved telling them. Her Dad loved words and language--Ruth still has his collection of dictionaries--and he is remembered by those who knew him as "always reading." Ruth's paternal grandfather was noted for his extensive library and both her parents were avid readers: her Mom loved popular fiction and her Dad bought four or five newspapers every day and subscribed to what seemed to be every magazine published--from Life and Look to BusinessWeek and Organic Gardening.

As a girl, Ruth wanted to be a professional ice skater. In her teens, she wanted to be a lawyer--a summer job in a law office cured her! After college, she got a beginner's job in publishing and her career path--first as an editor and then as a writer--was set.
