Meet JeriLee Randall, aspiring actress, ambitious writer, and sexual powerhouse. It is this ambition that takes her away from her tiny hometown of Port Clare and sets her on a collision course with her future. Surviving on determination and seduction, she makes her way to Broadway and then on to Hollywood. The bright lights mask a deeper darkness, and JeriLee is quickly drawn into a world of greed, drugs, casting couches, and smooth-talking power players. She struggles to hold on to her honesty and the code of ethics she developed in her youth. More than anything else, she struggles to hold on to her dreams of success and stardom. It will take all her strength and cunning to escape Hollywood's death grip and beat the power elite at their own game. Harold Robbins, the author who rewrote the rules for erotic fiction, turns Hollywood on its ear in The Lonely Lady.
