As a staff writer for the daytime serial, Tryst, Ariel finds herself between feuding headwriters, the show’s need for good ratings during the all important tri-annual sweeps weeks, an out of control producer, and actors who can’t act. Things take a turn for the worse, if that’s possible, when the matchmaking begins. Attractive and simmering with unexpected passions, Dr. Dorsey Rees is brought on board the show as the medical consultant. Try as she might, Ariel can’t avoid Dorsey, as is the intention of every good matchmaker, but there are times when both of them wish they were a globe apart. Like when a parody story for the show is mistakenly submitted, approved enthusiastically and goes on to be a rousing success. All at the expense of Dr. Rees, or Dr. Docktor as he’s known on air.Against the backdrop of a revolving door of producers, each one less competent than the last, a near-death by an over- indulgence of champagne truffles, a trip to a Caribbean paradise gone terribly awry, an embarrassing Christmas ornament accident, a calamity of miscues, misspoken words, and a lawsuit for defamation of character, Ariel and Dorsey still find it possible to finger-paint their way to love. Her parents adore him, his parents send him to Europe on business to keep him away from her. Ariel can’t help but question whether love is enough to hold a relationship together when such great differences threaten to separate them.
