James Swain is young, rich, talented, and handsome. A British actor in a wildly successful series of films, he’s well acquainted with the sort of lifestyle afforded by practically unlimited wealth. Life hasn’t always been this good for Jamie, but he senses something is still missing.
Enter Melanie Morganstern, a thirty-something Ameri-can housewife with an ambition to become a pub-lished author. After penning a well-received fanfiction novel involving Jamie’s popular character, Mel inad-vertently becomes drawn into his real-life orbit. What would seem like a dream come true soon becomes something like a nightmare: her favorite fictional char-acter crosses the line separating fantasy from reality, resulting in nearly catastrophic consequences.
Deciding Mel is exactly what he wants, Jamie tries to steal her away from her husband. But despite her attraction to him, Mel refuses to betray her marriage vows. It’s only after tragedy strikes that she finally opens herself to what Jamie has to offer – something she’s desperately needed all her life. And Jamie, leaping headfirst into the aftermath, learns lessons of self-sacrifice, patience, and responsibility. Their passionate romance blossoms despite nearly universal disapproval. Together, they face the challenges of forging a new life and a new family out of the wreckage.
