Up to The 2003 Season!
There are two storylines in City's Edge
that are woven together.
The Lightspeed Storyline
Lexi Parish transfers from New York City
to the Denver office of Lightspeed Corporation, an Internet technology
company, as the new Senior Internet Media Producer (Show #1). Single at
age 27, she's dynamic and vulnerable with a history of troubled romantic
relationships and some unfinished personal business in New York that may
catch up with her (Show #2).
Once at Lightspeed, Lexi meets her new assistant, company intern Brad
Williams. Sparks fly when Lexi meets Jason
McClain, one of the company's biggest clients (the "McClain Account").
Jason and Lexi have an intense chemistry from the first time they lay
eyes on each other (Show #9). Turner O'Brien,
Lexi's boss and founder of Lightspeed, is a long-time friend of Lexi's
and has known her since her college days on the East Coast. A tall, handsome,
late 40's gentleman, Turner was recently widowed with the death of his
beloved wife, Sarah.
Turner hosts a ski retreat for Lexi, Brad, Brad's girlfriend Kate
Peterson, and Lightspeed's bad girl Marketing Director Dani
Hartley (Show #4, #5, and #6). Dani shows up to the retreat with
date Michael Emerine in tow (see the Marsh-Herrington
Storyline for more about Michael) and promptly disappears with a hot ski
The Marsh-Herrington Storyline
Trent Mason is a felon on the run who has
escaped from a Federal prison back east. He's out to get even with Jonathan
Price, a 33 year-old stockbroker at Marsh-Herrington Holdings in
Denver. Jonathan is a tanned, olive-skinned player with an ego and a penchant
for beautiful, wealthy women. Jonathan is brokering a stock deal for Patricia
Ryan, the wife of a Denver industrialist. Patricia is 38, sophisticated,
and very business savvy. Frequently unfaithful to her husband, she is
clearly interested in Jonathan and has been waiting to make her move.
At a private party for Patricia's investors, Jonathan runs into his
old flame Veronica Devoreux, much to the
irritation of Patricia, and Veronica's date for the evening, Michael
Emerine. (Show #3) Veronica is a beautiful, 29 year-old heiress
to the Devoreux Mining fortune, has traveled the world for daddy's company
and for pleasure. She and Jonathan had a wild love affair in London two
As Trent continues his trek across America, Jonathan juggles phone calls
from both Veronica and Patricia (who argue over him at the day spa in
Show #4). He soon gets the news that Trent has escaped and is on his way
to exact his revenge. As Trent arrives in Denver (Show #7 and #8), Patricia
primps for another stab at seduction during her next meeting with Jonathan.
Instead, Jonathan skips out of Patricia's meeting early, and meets Veronica
for a steamy night of romance at the hotel (Show #9).
