Husband Hunting

Alicia had no reason for marriage, she was having a great time being single, but when her step-father suggested she might turn into an “old-maid”, he made her an offer she found hard to resist. He would pay her ticket around the world, all expenses paid, providing she returns with a husband. She immediately accepted his challenge and embarked upon a husband-hunting adventure, and in the process discovered her own weaknesses.

The story unfolds of how she was constantly falling in love with the wrong men: Attilio, the singing psychiatrist whose love produced disastrous emotional consequences, pushing her into the arms of Luis, her Latin lover from ArgentinaArno, the Italian count, who hid behind her beauty; Ted, the American industrialist, who lied to her in Tokyo. When she set her sites on Jack, a California pilot, he was in no mood for marriage, ever accompanied by a bevy of suntanned beauties. Running out of time, she puts her devious plan into action.

Husband Hunting, a woman’s search for a husband is indeed cosmopolitan and delightful reading. Each chapter describes the nation Alicia is hunting in at the time: the land of the tango, Argentina romantic Italy , haughty Germany , and frigid yet passionate Russia. Husband Hunting, the story of one woman’s search for marriage, is a blueprint for husband hunting.

Forbidden Passion

Will the pope abolish celibacy?

A passion prohibited by the Roman Catholic Church. When Mara Neill, married to a commercial pilot, falls in love with her parish priest, the handsome Fr. O’Dell, her husband, an ex-Navy pilot, threatens to kill the passionate priest. In order to avoid a catastrophe, Mara convinces her husband to sue him instead. The priest, torn by his love for Mara, a beautiful actress, and his love for the church, anguishes over whether to leave the church and marry her or attempt again to be true to his broken vow of celibacy. When somebody discloses the sordid details of the lawsuit to the parishioners, they demand the bishop return the disgraced priest back to the flock or they will withhold their tithings. The media embarks upon a barrage of publicity, and when the bishop returns the priest to his parish, Mara, outraged, fights back by hiring a private detective, who uncovers some of the church’s dark secrets. This novel full of sin runs the gamut of human emotions: joy, of meeting the beautiful actress; love, with the wrong man; fear, of being caught; worry, that the priest will be laicized; jealousy, between the pilot and the priest; greed, of which they accused her; frustration, of their lawyers; embarrassment, of the bishop; shame, of the victim; sin, they were all full of it; remorse, nobody had any of it!
