Summary
"In Having a Ball, a colonel decides to throw a party for his beloved daughter, enlisting his well-connected friend, Saldana, to arrange the invitations and the refreshments. Eager to be of service, the colonel's emissary uses his connections to convince the beautiful, the talented, and the powerful to attend. He is discreet and diplomatic in his choice of guests, but word of the party spreads quickly and it soon appears that the whole of Mexico City will be attending the ball. When the night finally arrives, mingling classes and chance encounters send sparks flying - and expose everybody's true colors." "Christmas Eve centers around a Christmas celebration held at the house of the gorgeous but calculating mistress, Julia. From the outset, her rarefied beauty arouses the interest of many suitors - among them her lover, the general; a well-groomed congressman; a hopeful young dandy; and a coarse and common house servant - but affection quickly excites jealousy as he sets one heart against another."--BOOK JACKET
