Pseudonym of a psychologist living in Sydney, Australia, Hill recounts her picaresque adventures trying to snag a "dick" to support her champagne lifestyle and high mortgage. Attractive, lusty, nearing 40, although advertising her age as 35, Hill hoped to duplicate a winning six-month relationship with John, a married "zillionaire" genius with two children, who had urged her to quit her job as in order to be available full-time for him while he paid lavishly for her living expenses, before unceremoniously dumping her. Developing a "Mistress Plan," she sends out a cleverly worded Internet ad asking for ,000 per week in return for exclusive entertaining in her own apartment (cooking, conversation, sex); the responses roll in, mostly from middle-aged, hardworking types in lonely marriages, and she selects three men: American Dick, French-Algerian Jacques, and Chinese Tom. Although Hill exalts in her feminist sense of empowerment, the insecurity proves too punishing, and she decides that finding true love is the answer. In workmanlike prose, she dishes the necessary nuts and bolts and the requisite sex scenes, concluding with a bit of banal wisdom on marital fidelity.
