Putting A Ruthless, Greedy Man In His Place: Woman On Top
New York, NY, September 16, 2013 – Returning to the single life after tragically losing a loving husband makes a young widow vulnerable, even if she is an attorney and an independent spirit. Inspired by events in her own life, Deborah Schwartz entertains us with a fast-paced tale of greed, high society and a very satisfying comeuppance in Woman on Top(Laudan Press).
The seduction of enormous money, heady excitement and luxurious glamour make this a captivating portrait of the essence and excesses of New York. Who could resist a tempestuous whirlwind of romance whipped up by a wealthy Wall Street banker? But the price turns out to be too high, and self-respect wins the day.
Schwartz cleverly weaves self-empowering thoughts into her heroine’s exploits, undercutting the ‘damsel in distress’ theme and transforming it into the infinitely more desirable ‘woman on top’ paradigm. While following her quest for a reaffirmation of life and love, including a surprising adventure, Kate’s story touches on the unexpected pleasures and decisions we face throughout our lives.
Readers who have dreamed of, or survived, a “Len” in their lives, will recognize themselves in Kate as she searches to find what matters most in her new life. What does a 35-year-old woman who seems to have it all do when the rug is pulled out from under her? Kate's struggle to find inner strength on her journey down a slippery slope with a wealthy man leaves readers rooting for her to land as the ‘woman on top.’ For more information, please visit Deborah's website.

She received her J.D. from Boston University. Now, a New Yorker to the core, Deborah’s passion is writing.
