He lives his life the way he wants and makes no apologies for it. Sure, he's tall--and extremely hot--but she won't let that fool her. She has no time for his antics. That is, until her perceptions of him begin to unravel. Soon, they find themselves hating each other a little less--and making out a little more. But when a misunderstanding threatens to rip them apart, both must decide: Is love worth taking a chance?

“Trust her to die happy! Just lying there in bed – all tranquil – not a care in the world, smiling sweetly, too, like she‘s taking a refreshing nap. Listening to the heavenly choir no doubt! And another thing, that’s a real smile… Well anyway, it’s not the usual allure-free rictus she pins on – the one that’s about as soothing as a ‘Jolly Roger’ suddenly hoisted on the only lifeboat responding to your may-day call...” Taking a Chance traces the relationship between Imogen and her mother, Ada, culminating in Ada’s death when Imogen is fifty years old. Imogen’s reminiscences start with her discovery of Ada’s death, revealing her quirky coping philosophy as she does so. Incredibly intelligent but maybe ‘too nice’, a shock discovery will have devastating consequences for her good nature... Ada, with a head chock-full of romantic illusions, needs to lose a husband in order to facilitate her dreams. Claiming that his death was a tragic accident, she is convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 5 years’ imprisonment. Only her son, Robin, is convinced that she is a murderer – Imogen vehemently disagrees, at least at the beginning. It is only much later, after fear on behalf of her sick mother has taken hold, that she realises her mistake. On the night before Ada’s death, Ada confesses devastating new information that destroys their relationship and has the power to tear the whole family apart. In a shocked rage, Imogen fails to return her mother’s medication to the locked medicine cabinet as usual... Taking a Chance is a gripping, sometimes humorous tale of a family in turmoil. Similar in style to Maeve Binchy, it will appeal to fans of stories with shocking twists and unexpected endings.

When his friend George Gershwin persuaded Vladimir Dukelsky to change his name to Vernon Duke, what the music world already knew became apparent to the public at large—the man had two musical personas—one as a composer, the other as a tunesmith. One wrote highbrow music, the other lowbrow. Yet the two sides complemented each other. Neither could function without the other. Born and classically trained in imperial Russia, Vladimir Dukelsky (1903–1969) fled the Bolshevik Revolution with his family, discovered American popular music in cosmopolitan Constantinople, and pursued his budding interest to New York before his passion for classical music drew him to Paris, where the impresario Serge Diaghilev hired him to compose a ballet for the Ballets Russes. Taking a Chance on Love immerses us in Duke’s dizzying globe-hopping and genre-swapping, as financial concerns and musical passions drive him from composing symphonies to writing songs, from brilliant successes to Broadway flops, and from performing with classical performers to writing books and articles. Throughout, as he crisscrosses the landscape of American music, collaborating with lyricists such as Howard Dietz, Ira Gershwin, and Sammy Cohn, the incomparable Vernon Duke emerges clearly from these pages: sometimes charming, sometimes infuriating, always entertaining. Although Vernon Duke has entered the canon of American standards with such songs as “Taking a Chance on Love,” “I Can’t Get Started,” and “April in Paris,” little is known about the composer with two personas. Taking a Chance on Love brings the intriguing double life of Dukelsky/Duke back into the spotlight, restoring a chapter to the history of the Great American Songbook and to the story of twentieth-century music.
