Daj si pozor na želania


„Želám si, aby bolo v metre voľné miesto... Aby som nezjedla celé vrecko cukríkov... Zhodila tých niekoľko tvrdohlavých kíl... Stretla muža, ktorý bude rád upratovať. Samostatná Londýnčanka Heather si ustavične čosi želá a nemyslí pritom na veľké veci – ako svetový mier alebo rande s Bradom Pittom. Vyrovnáva sa s neverou bývalého priateľa, po ktorom jej zostali len trpké spomienky a hypotéka na byt. Keď si kúpi od cigánky vres pre šťastie, zlé dni sa pominú a jej život sa zázračne zmení. Začne chodiť s príťažlivým susedom, prenajme izbu sympatickému Američanovi a môže splácať hypotéku, dokonca aj jej kariéra fotografky odrazu naberie na obrátkach. Heather je zaskočená tým, čo sa deje. Plnil jej priania skutočne vres, alebo to bola len zhoda náhod a okolností? A sú tie splnené priania požehnaním alebo prekliatím? Keď do života jej blízkych zasiahne vážna choroba, rozhodne sa zabudnúť na vres a ujasniť si, čo je v živote najdôležitejšie. Vtipný romantický príbeh je napísaný s nadhľadom a humorom. Alexandra Potterová (1970) sa narodila v Bradforde vo Veľkej Británii. Žila v Austrálii a v USA, pracovala ako prispievateľka a redaktorka britských ženských časopisov. Teraz sa venuje iba písaniu, žije v Los Angeles. Napísala romány Do You Come Here Often?, What´s New, Pussycat?, Going La-La, You're the One That I Don't Want a kritikou a čitateľmi ocenený román Calling Romeo. Jej vtipné romantické príbehy (na niektoré už predala filmové práva) miestami pripomínajú romány Betty MacDonaldovej, príhody Bridget Jonesovej alebo Sophie Kinsellovej. Má množstvo verných čitateliek po celom svete – od USA a Veľkej Británie až po Rusko, Poľsko a Indonéziu. Nikto nepíše tak ako Alexandra Potterová. Daily Mirror Neuveriteľne zábavné.

Calling Romeo


Have you ever wondered whether the grass is greener on the other side? This novel is about a successful woman, Juliet, who is in a comfortable relationship with Will, but can't help feeling that they're more like friends who have sex (and bicker from time to time) than lovers. She can't help wishing that she had more romance in her life. When she meets a sexy, dark-eyed Adonis from a rival advertising agency she is sorely tempted. During the course of the novel, Juliet must work out what's really important in life and whether romance really is all about sexy lingerie and red roses.
