Sumer Lovin' tells the story of Rachel Brinkerhoff, a vivacious New Yorker who dumps her psycho macho husband and immigrates to Canada. Rachel is keen to re-launch her matching business for Jewish singles and find new love, but nobody told her that female-aversive Toronto is definitely BYOB (bring your own boy). Then an earthquake shakes up Canada's metropolis in more ways than one, releasing from an ancient underworld, a male-hungry Sumerian demi-goddess and a rag-tag army of Canaanite warriors. The novel is a brash poke at male-female relations and an artful offering of paranormal adventure and romance.
Nicole Chardenet, author of Young Republican, Yuppie Princess, lives in her Toronto den o' debauchery with Belladonna, her evil henchkitty. When they're not plotting world domination together, Nicole is a business developer in the glamorous world of workforce management consulting. Sumer Lovin' is her second book, and she can't swear there won't be others forthcoming.

Sure to get a knowing chuckle from all women in Toronto." Lisa Marion, Toronto
