Rich girl. Poor girl.
Sisters--and strangers.
Enemies--and rivals.

Two women in love with the same man.



Beautiful Park Avenue heiress, Deedee Dahlen, and Lana Bantry, abused child from the wrong side of the tracks, live in different worlds. They share a father but not an inheritance, a lover but not a commitment--and they do not know of each other's existence.



Until a loving father with a shocking secret that ends in murder--and Slash Steiner, the mysterious man with the Midas touch--bring the two women face to face in a searing confrontation.



“A spectacular, richly plotted novel. Racing to a shocking climax, this glittering novel is first-class entertainment, a story of love and money, and how both are made, lost, and found again.” —NY Times

More Love And Money reviews:

“An ideal book. Ruth Harris has done a miraculous job of entwining the lives of two women in a totally believable and fascinating way. Plausible and entertaining, Love And Money reads fast and the time frames ring true. Ruth Harris is a talented writer who has come up with a novel so entertaining and interesting you won’t have to hide if someone asks you what you’re reading.” —West Coast Review of Books

“Fast-paced, superior fiction with a zinging sense of style. A skillfully written, highly commercial “page-turner” Love And Money is also a series of carefully drawn character studies and insightful psychological portraits. 

Love And Money focuses on three major characters. Deedee Dahlen is a million dollar heiress, ‘born late, as if she knew ahead of time how complicated her life was going to be and needed all the time she could get to prepare for coping with its difficulties.’

“Lana Bantry, Deedee’s illegitimate sister, was born ‘six weeks prematurely, as if she couldn’t wait to get out into the world and take charge.’

“Slash Steiner, a ‘man from nowhere who makes it big and becomes Deedee’s husband and Lana’s lover.

“Harris makes these characters and the joys and tragedies of their lives exciting and believable. With a narrative style that is crisply precise and descriptive, an unerring ear for dialogue and an overall tone that is strongly reminiscent of Susan Isaacs, Harris has written a terrifically satisfying ‘good read.’” —Fort Lauderdale News Sun-Sentinel

“Ruth Harris is in a class by herself!” —Literary Guild

“In this entertaining story, Harris portrays characters who try to assuage their emotional pain by amassing wealth. Harris will keep her fans engrossed as she accentuates the riskiness and unpredictability of lives obsessed with money, setting them against a backdrop of dizzying social change.” —Publisher’s Weekly

“Well-written, fast-paced and diverting.” —Library Journal

SENSORY DEPRIVATION, ISOLATION, VERBAL AND SEXUAL ABUSE—A TOP SECRET CIA PSYCHIATRIC EXPERIMENT TURNS STUDENT VOLUNTEERS INTO TERRORISTS!

Zeb Marlowe, the physically scarred and invisibly wounded survivor of a top secret CIA brainwashing experiment, has begun to remake his life when Jai Jai Leland, the beautiful, intelligent widow of a man who didn't survive, asks him to help her solve the mystery of her husband's shocking and violent death.

Marlowe, struggling to resist his attraction to Jai Jai, is pulled into her quest despite his memories of trauma and abuse and the way his mind was hijacked. Together they search for psychiatrist Victor Ressid, creator of the experiments that turned student volunteers into slaves.

Meanwhile, obsessed by his own bizarre sexual appetites and sudden, unexpected access to limitless wealth, Ressid is consumed by fantasies of revenge against Marlowe, the only volunteer to defy him. 

Against an ominous background of escalating global terrorism, Marlowe and Jai Jai uncover a deadly conspiracy at the heart of government. They must risk their lives to stop a nuclear threat that will destroy the security of the entire world even as they wonder if Marlowe, against his will, has been turned into a suicide bomber. 

With a plot that hurtles forward at electric speed, BRAINWASHED is set during the paranoid 1970s of Vietnam and Watergate. The novel takes place on the beautiful islands of the Caribbean, in Damascus and Ireland, the Philippines, Canada, Washington, DC and in an underground torture chamber located on Victor Ressid's secluded private estate located near the Mexico-Belize border. 

BRAINWASHED is based on real-life psychiatric experiments conducted by the CIA in American and Canadian universities and known by the code name MK-ULTRA.

THREE WOMEN. THREE DECADES.

Spanning the years from the optimistic post-War 1940s to the Mad Men 1950s and rebellious “Make Love, Not War” 1960s, DECADES is about three generations of women who must confront the radical changes and upended expectations presented by the turbulent decades in which they lived.

Evelyn, talented but insecure, faithful to the traditional values she grew up with, is a loyal and loving wife whose marriage means everything to her.

Nick, handsome and ambitious, a chameleon who changes with the changing times, is her successful but restless husband.

Joy, their daughter, coming of age at a time of anger and rebellion, needs them both but is torn between them.

Barbara is the other woman. Younger than Evelyn, accomplished but alone, she wonders if she can have everything--including another woman's husband.

But can she? Is she willing to pay the price? And how will Evelyn handle her rebellious daughter, her straying husband and the threat to her marriage?

DECADES, sweeping in scope yet intimate in detail, is the emotional, compelling story of family and marriage, betrayal and healing.

DECADES REVIEWS:

“A brilliant book. Three generations of women are succinctly
capsuled in this novel by a writer who has all the intellect of
Mary McCarthy, all the insight of Joan Didion. Rarely have
attitudes been so probingly examined—tough, trenchant, chic and
ultra-sophisticated, Ms. Harris recreates the decades in which
her heroines lived, from zoot suits and Sammy Kaye, through
Eisenhower, Elvis and poodle-cut hairdos to moon walks, Mick
Jagger and micro-minis. Readers will be entertained and few will be
able to forget what Decades has to say about men and women and the
games people play.” —Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“A terrific novel about a singular single girl.” —Cosmopolitan

“Ruth Harris has re-created both the style and substance of three
decades of American life—from the bobby socks and innocence of
the Forties, to the crinolines and caution of the Fifties, to the
bra-less T-shirts and alienation of the Sixties.” —Book-of-the-Month Club

“Powerful. A gripping novel that depicts the lives and loves of
three generations of women.” —Women Today Book Club

“I read Decades straight through at one sitting and the more I
think about that, the more impressive the novel seems.” —Houston Post

“The songs we sang, the clothes we wore, the way we made love. Absolutely perfect!” —Publisher’s Weekly

Would you risk everything for the man you loved? Even if you knew he'd done something terrible?

'A heart-wrenching and gripping tale. I was hooked from the very first page.' Write Escape 

Lara’s life looks perfect on the surface. Gorgeous doting husband Massimo, sweet little son Sandro and the perfect home. Lara knows something about Massimo. Something she can’t tell anyone else or everything he has worked so hard for will be destroyed: his job, their reputation, their son. This secret is keeping Lara a prisoner in her marriage. 

Maggie is married to Massimo’s brother Nico and lives with him and her troubled stepdaughter. She knows all of Nico’s darkest secrets – or so she thinks. Then one day she discovers a letter in the attic which reveals a shocking secret about Nico’s first wife. Will Maggie set the record straight or keep silent to protect those she loves? 

For a family held together by lies, the truth will come at a devastating price.

"the glowing ghosts of the radium girls haunt us still."—NPR Books

The incredible true story of the women who fought America's Undark danger

The Curies' newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War.

Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these "shining girls" are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill.

But the factories that once offered golden opportunities are now ignoring all claims of the gruesome side effects, and the women's cries of corruption. And as the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of America's early 20th century, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers' rights that will echo for centuries to come.

Written with a sparkling voice and breakneck pace, The Radium Girls fully illuminates the inspiring young women exposed to the "wonder" substance of radium, and their awe-inspiring strength in the face of almost impossible circumstances. Their courage and tenacity led to life-changing regulations, research into nuclear bombing, and ultimately saved hundreds of thousands of lives...
