內容簡介

  《瘋狂亞洲富豪》作者關凱文以全新作品,亮眼回歸文壇!

  一邊是紐約曼哈頓中的精英白富帥,一邊是帶著澳洲口音的香港衝浪小子,愛情選擇題,請作答!

  含著金湯匙出生的中美混血露西,來到義大利這個如夢如幻的卡布里島,參加朋友極其奢華的婚禮。沒想到卻在這裡意外邂逅了喬治,這個讓她瞧了一眼就受不了的男人。她的飯店房間景觀不夠好,他立刻自以為是地提議與她交換房間。更令她反感的是,他帶著露西來到古老而浪漫的歷史廢墟,並在黑暗中吻了她,卻意外被極度勢利眼的表妹夏綠蒂發現,還被嘲笑了一頓:「你是半個中國人,難怪會喜歡這種男人。」露西只能狼狽地全盤否認自己對喬治的情感,或許這才是她最無法忍受的。

  多年後露西訂婚了,對象是《君子雜誌》封為「全球最搶手的單身漢」超級富豪賽西爾派克。當兩人一起到漢普敦度假時,卻又再次遇到喬治,她才發現無論再怎麼壓抑自己的欲望和想法,自己從未忘記喬治的事實是永遠無法否認的…

  “Kevin Kwan’s new book is his most decadent yet.” —Entertainment Weekly

  The iconic author of the bestselling phenomenon Crazy Rich Asians returns with the glittering tale of a young woman who finds herself torn between two men: the WASPY fiancé of her family’s dreams and George Zao, the man she is desperately trying to avoid falling in love with.

  On her very first morning on the jewel-like island of Capri, Lucie Churchill sets eyes on George Zao and she instantly can’t stand him. She can’t stand it when he gallantly offers to trade hotel rooms with her so that she can have a view of the Tyrrhenian Sea, she can’t stand that he knows more about Casa Malaparte than she does, and she really can’t stand it when he kisses her in the darkness of the ancient ruins of a Roman villa and they are caught by her snobbish, disapproving cousin Charlotte.

  “Your mother is Chinese so it’s no surprise you’d be attracted to someone like him,” Charlotte teases. The daughter of an American-born Chinese mother and a blue-blooded New York father, Lucie has always sublimated the Asian side of herself in favor of the white side, and she adamantly denies having feelings for George. But several years later, when George unexpectedly appears in East Hampton, where Lucie is weekending with her new fiancé, Lucie finds herself drawn to George again.

  Soon, Lucie is spinning a web of deceit that involves her family, her fiancé, the co-op board of her Fifth Avenue apartment building, and ultimately herself as she tries mightily to deny George entry into her world–and her heart. Moving between summer playgrounds of privilege, peppered with decadent food and extravagant fashion, Sex and Vanity is a truly modern love story, a daring homage to A Room with a View, and a brilliantly funny comedy of manners set between two cultures.
