Summary

The bestselling author ofThe Erotic Silence of the American Wifeis back with another provocative peek at women's secret lives. Have you ever looked at one of your women friends and asked yourself, "She's so terrific--why is she withhim?" In her newest book, Dalma Heyn examines a rising trend in today's relationships--the coupling of high-achieving women with men Heyn terms "Drama Kings," weaker men who are drawn to the women's strength but ultimately attempt to sabotage it. These men create chaos in relationships, driving the women crazy in the process. Weaving examples from history, literature, and popular culture with clinical research she has conducted over several decades, Heyn illuminates an exploding phenomenon that's just reaching public consciousness. She details the telling traits of Drama Kings, such as "The Visitor," "The Proprietor," and "The Hit-and-Run Lover." She arms readers with the warning signs and offers strategies to handle the sagas that inevitably will develop in these relationships. Heyn ultimately delivers a hopeful and encouraging message: More and more women, instead of leaving these draining relationships in despair and misery, are taking their experiences with Drama Kings and turning them to their advantage, emerging even stronger and better equipped to enjoy richer liveswhether on their own or with the true love non-Drama King who is on the horizon.
