Another side of London…
After ten years together, including some difficult times, Adam and Eva are still as in love as they were when they told each other every day that they loved each other every day more.
All-round adorable Adam – adopted, mixed-race, with a deep social conscience that he shares with his wife – claims to have no issues other than having no issues. Raised by remarkable parents, he has grown up happy and grounded, uninterested in his “other parents” or in why they might have had to give him up.
Having lost her father at fifteen, and still suffering a terrible relationship with “mother”, Eva has more issues than she cares to admit, and it falls to an unexpected visit by two policemen to uncover a secret she has kept from her husband since the first day they met.
With the past at last explained, and the worst of it now apparently behind them, today has been a day of good news, which Eva is looking forward to sharing with the friends who have invited them to dinner. But their hosts seem to have very different plans for the evening, and the air is thick with tension as gradually the reason for their invitation begins to come out…
Its satirical humor sometimes black and irreverent, POLK, HARPER & WHO is a contemporary tale of complex family relationships, of friendships being put to the test, and of imperfect London love within imperfect London lives.

CHIVALRY LIVES IN THE SULTRY SOUTH! Streetwise Zeni is suspicious of her snap discovery by the producer of the film being shot in sleepy Chamelot, Louisiana. Yet the chance to play a bit part is irresistible—especially as her annoying boss, bad boy Trey Benedict, thinks she can’t make the cut. Trey will miss Zeni’s constant insults if she leaves town, but he’s not worried; she’s too unique to fit the star mold. His help with her makeover is part of a bet, nothing to be taken seriously. Why, then, is he risking matrimony and his neck to keep her near?
