My Lucky Star
|Series:||Cavanaugh and Simmons|
The luckless writing team of Philip Cavanaugh and Claire Simmons is lured to Hollywood by shifty pal Gilbert's offer of a lucrative screenwriting gig. The job proves even more ill-gotten than they'd feared, but then comes the news that the project will be graced by Hollywood royalty - imperious screen legend Diana Malenfant, her son the fantastically sexy (and secretly gay) megastar Stephen Donato, plus Stephen's hastily acquired wife, the lovely, if clueless, Gina. But with such Star Power on board how long before three newbie scribes are replaced by more seasoned hands? Unhappily - or perhaps, inevitably - the road to glory proves liberally strewn with land mines. Throw in the macinations of Moira Finch (an old adversary of Gilbert's) and our heroes soon find themselves center stage in a rapidly escalating fiasco involving call boys, plagiarism, blackmail, a vengeful DA, bloodthirsty scoop hounds and the single most ill-judged sex act a married megastar has ever committed...
