A pleasant interlude between an already established couple. Lacey and Sabrina seemed to compliment one another well, and I'd like to read more about them; from a note in the beginning, it looks like this is a sequel to "Climbing Rocks" - another short, published in the "Attractions of the Heart" anthology, and one I'll have to check out.

Credit Suisse Group AG, Barclays' biggest European rival in the US so far this year, has increased hiring in leveraged finance as it wagers that the market's explosive growth will continue, Bloomberg has reported. At eighth-placed Deutsche Bank, which is firing thousands of workers and pulling back from other US businesses, chief executive officer Christian Sewing wants to make more leveraged loans. Senior managers have embarked on a charm offensive in recent weeks with leaders of the US private equity firms that control many of the non-investment grade borrowers, people familiar with the matter have told Bloomberg.
The bank has increased the amount of money available for such deals.
Credit Agricole's approach is "driven by our worldwide relationship with leading, global financial sponsors and not on a market share imperative", said Mischa Zabotin, who oversees the French bank's relationships with private equity funds in the Americas. Skip to main content.

Is our pursuit of risk-aversion risky?
Carr believes her backstory gives the brand special meaning, as does one other activity she doesn't really publicize: From the beginning, the brand has used some of its profits to give back. It has partnered with organizations to fight homelessness, given aid to orphans in Tigray and helped reopen a hospital in Africa; Shhh also sent out notes along with orders explaining this "secret" to customers, tying into the name, Shhh. She did, however, want the Kardashians to know about this, as she strategized how she could get on their radar. She even did something risky that she's not entirely proud of.
But I had no idea gated communities existed," she begins what is clearly going to be a good story. At the time, unbeknownst to Carr, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were living there while their home was being renovated. Her plan was to drop off a package of pillowcases for the family and a heartfelt note detailing her story and the ways her brand gives back.
She thought bringing it herself would make more of an impact than sending something in the mail that they might never see. So they had a 'do not cross' [sign] across the driveway.
The Aussie Founder of Shhh Silk's Risky Pursuit of the Kardashians Paid Off
At that moment, I obviously knew I shouldn't have been there and I was thinking, 'oh, I've flown all the way from Australia, I literally just need to drop off the letter and the parcel,'" she explains. So I was like, the universe obviously is trying to help me. He pressed the doorbell, and I just went in straight after him, and I could hear noises inside and I was thinking, 'oh God, just just leave the box and get out of here,'" so she did. And it worked — sort of.
Risk Management does not equal Risk Aversion
In addition to not knowing about gated communities, Carr failed to realize that, obviously, Kardashian West sleeps on a king-size bed with king-size pillows; at the time, Shhh only made queen. We got them all personalized for her and then that was also the launch of our customization on our website," says Carr.
After that, in April of , came Shhh Silk's first big break: Kardashian West featured the brand's pillowcases in a giveaway on her now-defunct app. The company's other big break also involved a Los Angeles icon: the Beverly Hills Hotel, with which Carr has been collaborating on a range of silk products using the institution's well-known pink-and-green palm print.
Like getting in with the Kardashians, nabbing a spot in the hotel's gift shop was an early goal of hers. So as with most things that I do, I took the risk and I flew over there with my children with the intention to stay at hotel and have a meeting with someone there.
