Abstract:

From the Publisher: Anyone who has worked for someone else knows the endless routine, the twisted psychology, and the near-impossible obstacle course that are the terrain of the assistant, And anyone who has gotten married knows that planning a wedding is a similarly daunting task. For 10 years, Oscar Campbell ash worked as the personal assistant to the legendary Dawn-renowned for her tantrums as well as her success as the head of Dawn Books, a powerful New York City publishing house-when she orders him to plan her wedding. In the tradition of classic screwball comedies and with a sharp eye for modern-day irony, As Long as She Needs Me chronicles Oscar's marital-planning quest a he handles monster agents, soothes celebrity authors, and manages to survive his famously explosive boss. Relief comes in the form of a chance meeting with the popular wedding columnist Lauren LaRose, with whom Oscar strikes a deal: her expertise on ministers, appetizers, and centerpieces for his editing of her grueling monthly nuptial report. As the two work together to manufacture the romances of others, feelings between them ignite, which soon has Oscar devising a top-secret plan of his own.
