When tragedy strikes the set of America's most popular soap opera, the show's starlet begins to fear for her life. Jane Dunne has a future in Hollywood. After years of striving, she's finally landed a juicy part on Valentine Valley, the highest-rated soap on daytime TV. Fame will be hers, matter whom she has to hurt to get it. But fate, it seems, has other plans. As Jane readies for her first close-up, a stage light falls from above, breaking Jane's neck on her first day of work. The tragedy shocks the set, and terrifies Valentine Valley star Serena McCormack, who fears the deadly blow was meant for her. When death threats flood Serena's dressing room, the show's producers hire her former lover, private investigator Liam Murphy, to protect her. He is a handsome, courageous bodyguard, and as they grow closer Serena thinks she might be on the verge of true love - unless death finds her first.
