My ex-husband had his extravagant moments. So begins a delightful short story by Douglas Kennedy, the #1 international bestselling author of The Moment, just in time for Christmas, and only available as an eBook. Erica, a Manhattan corporate lawyer, seemingly has it all-a gorgeous Tribeca loft, a hefty paycheck, a svelte physique, and an engagement ring worth a healthy six-figure sum. The problem is that the ring was given to her by her now ex-husband, who wants it back and is willing to pay her handsomely for it. In this state of material wealth, Erica has found herself utterly alone, her life empty, her only companions the piles of work sitting on her midtown office desk. It's Christmas Eve, and as she finally decides to call it a day, she walks through the building's lobby, begins a conversation with the doorman,and in one extravagant moment of her own,discoversthe truth about the gift of giving.
