⚛⚛⚛ Synopsis ⚛⚛⚛
Lounge singer, Lauren Rose lived her comfortable life in Atlanta always dreaming of making it in show biz. When she unexpectedly meets British male super-model, David Randle at a gig at the posh St. Regis Hotel, she is swept away by his striking good looks and lilting cadence.
In town for his sister Catherine’s nuptials to NASCAR driver, Brian Brady, David invites Lauren to the wedding on a whim. The two instantly bond over music, fashion and family. They continue their new relationship in New York City when David invites Lauren to see him in action at a high profile fashion shoot for his debut fragrance, “Drive.”
Sparks fly when his assistant, Sabrina Watson is none too happy that his new girlfriend has interrupted his grueling, fast-paced schedule. She becomes fixated on separating the happy couple who are falling in love.
Traversing the East Coast and Europe with the paparazzi in hot pursuit, David and Lauren navigate the precarious path of fame, fashion and fate.
Her wildest dreams were coming true. Would she ever truly believe that his desire was to be near her – always?
⚛⚛⚛ Exclusive Excerpt ⚛⚛⚛
David practically flew across the lounge to get to Lauren. The sound of her head hitting the edge of the black lacquered piano was horrific, his entire being immediately going into protection mode. He couldn’t get to her fast enough. Miles was already by her side kneeling next to her as several patrons crowded around with looks of concern.
David pulled her into his lap. “Is she bleeding, Miles? Is she breathing?”
“I don’t see any blood. She’s knocked out cold.” Miles’ face was ghostly white.
David lifted her into his arms and hurriedly carried her across the room. He was taken aback by how light she was, realizing she must have lost a lot of weight. A security guard had arrived by this time letting him know that the paramedics were on their way. Tim, the bartender ushered them into a small office out of the public eye. David gently set her on a worn, leather chair and knelt in front of her, stroking her cheek.
“Lauren? Lauren, darling please wake up!” He turned to Tim. “Can you please get me some ice for her head?” Tim nodded and quickly exited.
Miles looked on and ran his hand through his jet black hair. His bow tie had been loosened and hung limply around his neck. “One minute she was singing and the next, she flubbed the intro of our last song and was on the floor. She had a weird expression. I knew something was wrong.”
David kept stroking his fingers across her cheeks staring at her face, willing her to open her eyes. He felt guilty for startling her during the last song. He had wanted to wait till the show was over and the crowd had thinned out before he approached her. But hearing her lovely voice echo down the hallway of the hotel made him desperate to see her, to lay eyes on her after being away for so long. The anticipation of seeing her again had him muddled from the time he had arrived in the states—he could hardly concentrate on anything else. Now she was unconscious, lying helpless before him, making his heart heavy with worry. If anything were to happen to her….
A small moan escaped her pink lips, and she shifted in the seat.
“Lauren, open your eyes. Please, open your eyes,” he pleaded.
Her eyes fluttered open and immediately pooled with tears staring back at him. “You’re here,” she whispered. He pulled her gently into an embrace as she started to cry, clutching the back of his neck. He rocked her silently, his own eyes filling with tears.
“There, there, love. It’s all right. Thank God, you’re all right.” He couldn’t let go of her and did his best to try to maintain his composure. “I missed you so much. You have to know that,” he whispered into her ear. She nodded, her grip tightening around him.
