Few American women are as ripe for adventure as Gigi Orsini in the booming, optimistic year of 1983. In her mid-twenties, Gigi is an original: as amusingly naughty as she is romantic, as personally courageous as she is sexually alluring.
A talented copywriter, Gigi has just accepted a job at a Los Angeles advertising agency where is is teamed with a tenderly seductive art director. The three owners of the agency include two ambitious bachelors and one powerful woman whose irrational hatred for Gigi turns her into a powerful adversary. Gigi's life veers in a new direction as she finds herself in a world of diabolic demands and enormous challenges. Never have the passionate practitioners of the business of advertising been unmasked so nakedly, as Gigi is drawn into a whirlwind of desire, betrayal-and perilous love.
