When legendary film director Dorian Rasmirez gambles his fortune on an opulent remake of Wuthering Heights, he knows it's his last chance to salvage his career. Thanks to a bitter public feud with producer Harry Greene, Dorian desperately needs a hit--a big one--and he'll do anything to get it. Even cast Hollywood bad girl Sabrina Leon in the lead role.
Plucked from obscurity, Sabrina catapulted to fame at an early age. Now the young starlet is as famous for her battles with drugs and alcohol as she is for her intoxicating beauty. But Dorian knows that with the right leading man, Sabrina could give the performance of a lifetime. Enter Viorel Hudson, the arrogantly sexy British import whose Heathcliff promises to be the most explosive Hollywood has ever seen.
From the moment Vio and Sabrina meet, their chemistry is undeniable. But as hot as their on-screen performance is, it doesn't hold a candle to the tabloid-ready drama unfolding behind the scenes...

Bagshawe (Friends and Rivals) doesn’t shy from presenting flawed characters in this clunky contemporary. Movie star Sabrina Leon, trying to resurrect her flagging career, reluctantly agrees to work with acclaimed director Dorian Rasmirez in his latest period epic, Wuthering Heights. Despite her loathing for Dorian and Letitia “Tish” Crewe, manager of the film location—an English estate owned by Sabrina’s flaky brother—Sabrina’s mood vastly improves when she sets her sights on Viorel Hudson, an up-and-coming heartthrob of British and Romanian descent. Bagshawe works hard to weave in subplots about Dorian’s crumbling marriage, Tish’s struggle to maintain the estate while raising her adopted son, and Viorel’s doomed attempts to resist both Sabrina and Tish, but all the characters are so unlikable and selfish that the reader is hard pressed to care. An interesting question of whether fame and success trump love and principles is drowned in exposition, nastiness, and a blur of bed-hopping. Agents: Alexandra Machinist and Luke Janklow, Janklow & Nesbit. (Mar.)
