I loved this book and will re-read it, but forgot the plot, so I copied it from Library Journal so you can read what it's all about.

From Library Journal
Thirty-six-year-old Ralph Behr is the third generation of Behrs involved in real estate development in New York. Wealthy and influential, Ralph is finalizing plans for the monumental Behr Center, a complex meant to revive Lower Manhattan's East Side, when his father, Henry, tells him that to settle an old debt he must enter into a marriage of convenience with Gail Benedict, daughter of Henry's old business partner. So begins a tempestuous relationship between two very different people, Gail, a women's activist and advocate for the poor, and Ralph, whom she sees as the evil personification of greed, wealth, and tyranny. Both main characters mature in the course of this well-written, entertaining book.
