Yet, a funny thing happens on the way to the Arctic. A gregarious walrus pup, a cantankerous scientist, an Australian sex goddess, a Star Wars obsessed six-year-old, and friends and nemeses both past and present rock Sydney Green’s well-ordered world. Soon Sydney is forced to choose between doing what’s easy and doing what’s right.
Beth Orsoff’s Girl in the Wild is a bright, comical tale of ambition, romance…and walruses.

Beth Orsoff is the author of Romantically Challenged, Disengaged, Girl in the Wild, Honeymoon for One, and Vlad All Over. She was born in New York City and has never lived more than an hour's drive from the ocean -- even spending her formative years toiling as a lifeguard where she was "paid to work on her tan." When her parents forced her to get a "real job," she went to law school and forged a career as an entertainment attorney in Los Angeles. Currently, when she's not writing humorous or suspenseful women's fiction, Orsoff can be found at her desk drafting Hollywood contracts. Sadly, she no longer sports a tan.
And yet Gwen can’t shake the nagging feeling that saying yes to this man could lead to more than she bargained for. She knows so little about him—and the idea of spending six weeks in the land of Dracula and Vlad the Impaler is more than a little creepy. But the legends of Romania will be the least of her concerns if she doesn’t make some money…fast. And so Gwen says yes: yes to the job, yes to a European excursion…and yes to a summer that will change her path forever.
With her trademark crackling dialogue, exotic locations, and knack for realistic characters, Beth Orsoff delivers an engrossing tale of love, intrigue, and betrayal. This is not your typical chick lit tale. This is something new. This is gothic chick lit.
The thirty-two-year-old Hollywood accountant would rather elope, but fiancé Brad seems incapable of saying “no” to mommy’s wedding demands. Allie wonders if anyone knows—or cares—that she is the one who’s getting married.
Her closest friends are too engrossed in their own messy love lives to offer any guidance, and Allie’s mother’s views on marriage would make a strident feminist blush. The only one who seems interested in what Allie thinks is a good-looking acquaintance by the name of Jax Montgomery. But Jax’s attentions have Allie questioning just what it is she truly wants.
Beth Orsoff’s hilarious and heartfelt romp Disengaged is all about getting to “I do” by saying “I won’t.”
