Tycoon Payne Sterling is furious when he sees a romance novel with his picture on the cover. Adding to the insult, the story parallels events in his life, which prompts him to take the artist, the author and the publisher to court. Inspired by a photograph of an anonymous man, freelance artist Rainey Bennett feels horrible at the trouble she has caused and sets out to reassure Payne that it was an honest mistake. Rebecca Winters' MANHATTAN MERGER is a page-turner. The hero and heroine really shine, with delightful scenes and great dialogue and secondary characters.
