Based upon an incident that the author herself experienced as a young woman, "Just a Kiss" is the story of Carolyn Kahn and Bruce Donovan, two seemingly star-crossed lovers. When Bruce Donovan, a young Madison Avenue executive and the son of advertising mogul Kent Donovan, impulsively kisses Carolyn, a young college student working for Bruce, all kinds of sparks fly. When Carolyn tells her parents what happened, she is persuaded by her father to confront the Donovans and threaten to press sexual harassment charges. Although a win-win out-of-court solution eventually seems to be reached in the opinion of Kent and Phil (Carolyn's father), Bruce and Carolyn are devastated. Running into each other in the most unpredictable of places, they realize that they are falling in love, but they know that their relationship must be kept secret. Filled with humor, pathos, and the resilience of young love, "Just a Kiss" is a warm and sweet romance that brings us back to the wonder and excitement of our own first love and lost youth.
