This is it ... this is my destiny woman, Max blurted out when he first met ravishing Lola Bessington at the Coliseum Shop. Not only was Lola aristocratic and wild at heart, but the two soon discovered an uncanny convergence of musical tastes. In no time they were converging at every level-Lola filling Max's emptiness and vice versa. But Max had always craved the attention of another sort of woman, the sort who had been homecoming queen at her high school-as the tempting Lula Mae Flowers had been back in Texas. Why did Max have to meet Lula Mae just when he'd found his destiny woman in Lola? And how, if Lola embodied everything Max longed for, could there possibly be anything left over for a Texan ex-homecoming queen? Max's fervid pursuit of both women is further complicated by his constant-often hilarious-battles with his own annoyingly reasonable mind. When his duplicity is discovered, there is hell to pay.
