British-born Hollywood sex symbol Kenzie Scott is larger than life, from his sex appeal to the tragedies in his closely guarded past. Devoted to the craft of drama, Kenzie insists on making talented American newcomer Raine Marlowe his costar in his next big-budget film. The chemistry between them is incredible, on and off camera, and when their work is done they tumble into a breathtakingly beautiful affair -- and a heartbreakingly brief marriage.
Then, just as divorce papers are about to sever the legal ties between them forever, Raine persuades Kenzie to sign another agreement -- a professional one to play the lead in her upcoming first venture as screenwriter and director.
Amid the labyrinth of lies that makes up both her film and his reality, Raine learns the bitter truth that makes Kenzie so devastatingly perfect for the role of the tortured hero she's cast him in -- and struggles to find a happy ending for their love.
