A talented young actress; a
leading man; a sexy secret—the role of a lifetime
In this big, juicy literary
novel from bestselling author Amy Sohn, an ambitious young actress discovers
that every marriage is a mystery, and that sometimes the greatest performances
don’t take place on screen.
When Hollywood heartthrob
Steven Weller pulls Maddy Freed out of obscurity for a starring part in his
newest, Oscar-worthy film, she feels her career roaring onto the express track.
Steven’s professional attention soon turns personal as they are thrown together
amid Europe’s Old World charm, and Maddy allows herself to tumble headlong into
a fairytale romance with the world’s most eligible bachelor. She knows there’s
no truth to the gay rumors that have followed him for years.
Yet what is it that Steven
sees in Maddy that he has not seen in his string of past girlfriends? Steven
tells her he is drawn to her stunning gift as an actress—her ability to inhabit
a character so seamlessly, so convincingly, that it is nearly impossible to
tell she is playing a role—a compliment that becomes more ominous as their
marriage progresses. Ultimately, as Maddy’s own happiness and success grow
intertwined with her new husband’s, she cannot afford to ask too many questions
about Steven’s complicated past. But can she ignore her inner voice, and her
instincts about her own worth?
Set in a tantalizing world of
glamour and scandal, of red carpets and ruthless competition, of scheming
agents and the prying eye of the press, The Actress is a romantic, sophisticated page-turner about the
price of ambition, the treachery of love, and the roles we all play. Download and start listening now!
