Talk about a love triangle. First, Stephanie, the wry, surnameless hero of Danielle Steel's goofily diverting new novel, falls hard for the seemingly perfect bionics entrepreneur Peter Baker. Then the divorced mother of two meets Paul Klone, the android version of Peter that Peter himself created. Paul has Peter's good looks but no common senseā€”or inhibitions about telling Stephanie he loves her.

Weird? Definitely. But it can be fun too. Even if it does seem a bit more Star Trek than Steel. (Delacorte, $17.95)

Bottom Line: Kooky but clever
