“’Maybe what I want is an inflatable man. One I can blow up when I need him in my life, and deflate him when I don’t.”’ – Celia Hephner
New York City – Fashion capital of America and home to the once prestigious House of Rivaldi. The struggle to rebuild itself after bad publicity and faulty collections becomes a game of who’s playing whom in the racy world of high fashion, high stakes, and unrequited love.
Inspired designer, Celia Hephner is determined to turn Rivaldi around. Yet “inflatable” men fill her world with their puffed up egos and private agendas. The most evocative being her ex-husband who left her five years ago for Paris.
Peter Sletcher – Marketing guru and more elusive than ever when he returns to Celia’s life. Realizing her genius, he challenges her comfort zone in many ways, though his motivation remains ever in question.
Murderous intent, stylish clothes, dangerous love.
Designs are stolen, bodies fall, and talents battle it out within the silky seams of the Fashion Center’s runway as Celia must do the one thing she cannot—trust Peter, before she becomes the next victim and the fall of the house is assured.
