Loretta is a bestselling novelist and a hit among her fans. His latest novel, The lost city of D, involves a high-profile protagonist who embarks on a wacky adventure and finds love. Surprisingly, in her real life, Loretta is quite the opposite. She has never traveled and is content with her simple and somewhat boring life, where she writes and stays at home, or stays within her inner circle. But when her latest novel comes out, her publicist insists that she go on a book tour to promote her book. And that’s when her life took a radical turn, giving her the adventure of a lifetime.

For starters, Loretta is kidnapped by an incredibly wealthy madman who wants Loretta to find the fictional ancient city mentioned in her new novel.

Alan is a model, who appears on the cover of Loretta’s latest novel, The Lost City of D. He is merely a visual representation of the novel’s hero, Dash MacMahon. He’s dashing and handsome, making Loretta fans cringe like he’s “the hero.” On the book tour, Alan follows Loretta around as eye candy, so to speak, and also promotes the new novel. Loretta seems frustrated with Alan’s irrational fan-following. When she is kidnapped, Alan decides to be a true hero and sets out to find her, heading to a tropical jungle where her captor has taken her. Unfortunately, Alan is, once again, just a model. He has no survival skills, let alone how to find his way through a jungle. It is also possible that there is some sort of romance between him and his novelist. Now how Alan will save himself and Loretta is the real crux of the story.
