Product Description

Following their Academy Award wins, the film careers of Elizabeth Sutton and Aidan Evans reach stratospheric heights. Now bona fide superstars, the Hollywood press and throngs of starstruck fans await them at every turn, and the pressure to maintain their luminary status for the benefit of Starlight Studios escalates.

Away from the spotlight, Beth and Aidan's forbidden romance intensifies. Passionate nights spent together in secret stoke their mutual desires, each experience more extraordinary than the last.

Beth is thrilled with the breakthroughs in both her professional and personal lives, but perpetual feelings of guilt and self-doubt cripple Aidan's happiness. Slowly, the burdens brought on by the fame he neither courted nor craved unleash his inner torment, releasing the demons Beth's love and support helped him cage.

Aidan must embark on a final journey to move on from his traumatic past once and for all, but the outcome is anything but certain. It leads him down an unexpectedly dark path, from an explosive showdown with studio head Luther Mertz, to a jarring revelation about his mother’s death that could hold the key to his salvation or exile him from everyone he loves forever.

Stardust is the powerful conclusion to The Starlight Trilogy, a story of love and redemption set against the backdrop of the final years of Hollywood's Golden Age.

Five Reasons To Read The Starlight Trilogy:

1. A sweeping technicolor tale of forbidden romance.

2. A detailed homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema.

3. Cameos from many of your favorite classic film stars.

4. Transformation of a small town girl to silver screen starlet through Hollywood’s unforgiving lens.

5. Close-up of a 1950s bad boy channeling a tragic past and the stress of sudden super stardom through the art of Method acting.

This was well worth the wait. I just hope my review does this book justice. I was so happy when the first book was suggested to me by my friend Jennifer, I read it in one day. I love books, and I love movies especially old movies and the magic of Hollywood. I took my time with starbright book #2 because I loved the characters and the story so much. Stardust I have to say is my favorite of all three books, finished in a day. It picks up the night after Elizabeth and Aidan won their Academy Awards and spend the night together expressing the love they have for one another. The six friends lives seem brighter than ever, Connie and Matthew were engaged, Nate just proposed to Olivia and it look like things would be heading in that direction for Aidan and Elizabeth after they Finnish shooting Golden Gloves. Well,Luther J. Mertz actions throws everything and everyone into turmoil. ( I don’t want to spoil the book so you’ll just have read what happens) Aidan leave beth and Nathan walks away from Olivia, and Connie and Matthew pick up the pieces. We find out the hold Mertz has on Nathan and why he work for Luther in the first place. Aidan finds himself in Chicago and confronts his father, he finds out his father was cheating on his mother with his current wife betty and was with her the night his mother was murdered. Beth and Olivia went back home for a visit, beth to Clarkson and Olivia to Portland. Beth explains to her parents what happened and confides more to her mother on a trip to the store, and her mother tells her Aidan will be back. Beth also connects with her friend Emma who went to teachers college and married a home town boy, Emma makes Beth realize she has become what she was meant to be an actress and that she would be returning to L A. Beth told her parents she would be returning to L A in a couple of days, but before that could happen she got a long distance call from Chicago, thinking it was Aidan she was greeted by Nathan with the news that Aidan was in an accident and she needed to come to Chicago. I can’t tell you how many times my heart was ready to break feeling that Aidan was not going to make it. Nathan explains to his friends why he stayed with Luther Mertz and that he made Mertz retire or he was going to expose him. The six friends stuck together, Nathan and Olivia got back together. Kazan got the rights to Golden Gloves and finished the movie. The three couples all relocated to NY and started their new lives as the studio system was collapsing. Nathan started his own firm and help to organize the finishing of Golden Gloves and helped with promoting it. Nathan owned his own public relations firm, Olivia was sought after to design costumes for Broadway, Connie, Aidan, and Beth were acting and Matthew was still singing and touring sold out shows. They all married had families and supported one another. I did not want this book to end, but it was beautifully written and Alexandra Richland did an amazing job explaining where everyone was in their lives. This Trilogy and Characters will always be special to me. Thank you for sharing their Story!
5.0 out of 5 stars I love old Hollywood stories 2 June 2015

This is the final installment of the Starlight series. I love old Hollywood stories, it’s a bygone era. And Richland has an ability to put you in it. It is well written and you can even picture it.

In the first book we are introduced to Elizabeth and Aidan. Through the first two books we see their careers and see their relationship bloom. How they navigate their way through the Hollywood and friendships. This book starts up right after Elizabeth and Aidan wins their Academy Awards. Just when they and their friends are on their high, they are dropped down to the low in the form of Luther J. Mertz. Aiden leaves Elizabeth and flees to Chicago. Mertz also destroys the lives of their friends. While in Chicago, Aiden confronts his father about his mother’s murder and learns more than he bargains for. Elizabeth returns home and gets some good advice. Just before returning to L.A she gets a call from Chicago that Aiden was in an accident. What will happen? Will they be free from Mertz? Will they get their lives back together?
The series is a great tale from start to finish. The story put you in the era and these character’s lives. The story is well written and age turner. Richland does not disappoint.

The passion among all the main characters is outstanding. Whether it be for acting, or for their partners it drives the story and it's hard to stop reading, you just want to go from one book to the next. The romance and angst are perfectly balanced.
The story takes you right to the 50's with all its references you actually feel like you're part of the story. I cannot say enough about the books, from beginning to end a great trilogy.

What can I say about Richland's last book in her Starlight Trilogy? Well, I can say it's one of the most well-written, intriguing books I have ever read. Not only does Richland capture the time period so fantastically, her characters come off the pages with so much depth and charisma. Richland has proven time after time that her books are ones to watch, and if you haven't read this trilogy, you MUST DO IT NOW!
