The year is 1990. A bright-eyed twenty-year-old Taylor embarks on her journey as she touches down in London.

She will find love, endure loss, and immerse herself in a career filled with lies, deceit, and deadly consequences.

Getting to a safe and secure space in her life isn’t easy. She grows up in the mean streets of Chicago, Illinois, where she is a product of a broken home. Absentee father, coldhearted mother, Taylor learns early on how to take care of herself, and she vows never to depend on another. She is determined to show London all she has to offer when in walk Barry Wentworth and George Blackstone of StarCross DreamWorks Company. Deciding to take a position with them proves to have deadly consequences, and what she uncovers threatens to destroy everyone involved in the company.

Adding fuel to her fire, Taylor is enthralled in a love triangle. Three men, Maxwell, Juan Pedro, and Gregory Borad, all vie for her affection, her heart. Which one will she choose? Career, love, and lies—these three factors outline Taylor’s life. She is consumed by her career, willing to win by any means necessary.
