Any Way the Wind Blows: A Novel

Basil Henderson, the good-looking, bisexual sports agent who left his wife-to-be at the altar in Harris’s previous book, Not a Day Goes By, is back and "ripe for another ride on the rough-and-ready freeway of love" [p. 15]. He’s on the lookout for sexy ladies and handsome hunks who understand his rules of the road—passionate pleasures with no strings attached. But when Basil seduces Bart Dunbar, a buff young model who appears in a promotion for Basil’s company, things start to go off course. Bart has some down-and-dirty moves of his own—and the good luck to find a ready partner in Ava, the mother of Basil’s jilted bride, Yancey Harrington Braxton.

After the fiasco of her would-be wedding day in New York, Yancey has staged a comeback any diva would envy. Severing ties with her ex-financé and her manipulative mother and leaving her blossoming career on Broadway behind, she moved to LaLa Land, transformed herself into Yancey B, pop singer fabulosa, and cut a CD for Motown Records. She’s about to make a video showcasing a dynamite song written especially for her. A beautiful ballad with highly controversial lyrics about a young woman whose groom leaves her at the altar for another man, "Any Way the Blows" is destined to stir up a storm—not only on the Billboard charts but in the lives of Yancey and Basil as well.

Any Way the Wind Blows is narrated in turns by Yancey, Basil, and Bart, and their stories ring with the bravado of outsized egos trying desperately to hide the pains of the past. With just the right mix of sex, suspense, humor, and compassion, E. Lynn Harris adds another winner to his long list of smash hits.
