Cat McAllister is just about to celebrate her 25th birthday for the fourth time. A child-actress turned fading It-girl she's well aware that her fame is starting to lose its shine. She really should have tragically overdosed by now. Or else succumbed to some harrowing disease brought on by a steady diet of vodka-tonics and TicTacs. Currently she's in danger of being consigned to that seventh circle of celebrity hell where she's just recognisable enough for people to think she's someone else. Worse still, her trust fund is running dry...What's a girl to do? With few assets (aside from a temperature controlled closet) and fewer talents (shopping and an encyclopaedic knowledge of Best-Dressed Lists,) there's only one way out of B-list obscurity: to marry and marry well. Her quarry: not just Mr Right but Prince Right. If she can impress Stefan of Westonia, New York's most eligible bachelor, enough to put a ring on her finger she'll be able to ratchet up the ranks faster than you can say Gwyneth Paltrow. Let the games begin...
