As all of the early reviews indicate, Jane Heller is a writer at the top of her game.Her sixth novel Sis Boom Bah, was the first book to be optioned for a feature film by Julia Roberts's production company, Shoelace Productions.It also made the USA Today bestseller list in its St. Martin's Press paperback edition.Her seventh novel, Name Dropping, published in paperback by St. Martin's in March, earned her the best reviews of her career, including a rave from People magazine (she's the only author with four "Book of the Week" nods from People).Now comes her eighth and most ingenious romantic comedy, Female Intelligence.An alternate selection of the Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club, with audio rights already sold to Audio Renaissance, FemaleIntelligence is a modern twist on "My Fair Lady" - the perfect combination of witty, sparkling dialogue and fast-paced, page-turning plotting. In the classic film, Rex Harrison was a linguist who taught street urchin Audrey Hepburn how to speak like a lady and then fell in love with her.In FemaleIntelligence, Lynn Wyman is a linguist who teaches macho CEO Brandon Brock how to speak with ladies and falls in love with him.Lynn has a successful practice in sensitivity training, instructing alpha males in the language of Womenspeak so they can relate better to the women in their lives.When her personal life becomes the stuff of tabloids and her professional reputation is sullied, she must do something - anything - to resurrect her career.After spotting Brock on the cover of Fortune magazine's "America's Toughest Bosses" issue, she bets her friends that, by tinkering with his words, by adjusting his speech patterns, by putting him through her Wyman Method, she can turn him into "America's Most Sensitive Boss" and climb back on top.Little does she know that by winning her bet she will lose her heart.FemaleIntelligence is a hilarious look at our inability to bridge the communication gap between men and women, despite all the Mars/Venus books on the market.Brimming with Jane's inimitable humor, it also features her trademark mix of romance and suspense, including a surprise ending in which one of the heroin's friends turns out to be anything but.A sure-fire bestseller to be backed by a major marketing campaign, FemaleIntelligenceconfirms Jane's status as a wry, knowing writer with a keen eye for popular culture.
