I enjoyed this book very much - it's about three bachelors - Charlie Harrington, Adam Weiss and Gray Hawk. Charlie is a charming, handsome philanthropist, Adam is a forty-something celebrity lawyer and Gray is a gifted artist with a knack for attracting troubled relationships. At the start of the book, the bachelors, who are best of friends, are spending their annual summer vacation cruising the Mediterranean aboard Charlie's majectic yacht, completely unaware that by autumn, all three will fall into relationships they never saw coming. A great beach reat.

When you've got three attractive men in a Steel novel, each determined to stay single, you can expect romance, love and marriage vows around the corner, as well as the usual mix of glamour, fashion and wealth. Charles Sumner Harrington, born to affluence, has no family and, following several botched engagements, is, at 46, a perfectionist who will probably never meet the woman of his dreams. Adam Weiss, a Harvard Lawtrained hotshot, was burned by a nasty divorce; at 41, he is a sworn bachelor who parties with the pretty, young and clueless. Gray Hawk, a New York artist living hand-to-mouth at 50, was adopted at birth by globe-trotting, drug-taking rock stars; he's drawn exclusively to women whose middle name is "victim." The three friends take their annual summer Mediterranean booze cruise on Charles's luxurious yacht, and in the hubbub there and back in New York, each ends up crossing paths with a woman who turns his life upside down. After the initial bliss, there are confrontations, challenges and threats to promising relationships. Despite relentlessly reiterating her characters' Freudian backstories, Steel delivers the inevitable happy endings in the usual nontoxic, satisfying manner.
