Award-winning songwriter Linda Thompson breaks her silence, sharing the extraordinary story of her life, career, and epic romances with two of the most celebrated, yet enigmatic, modern American superstars-Elvis Presley and Bruce JennerFor the last forty years, award-winning songwriter Linda Thompson has quietly led one of the most remarkable lives in show business. The longtime live-in love of Elvis Presley, Linda emerged into the limelight during the 1970s when the former beauty queen caught the eye of the King. Their chance encounter was the stuff of legend, and marked the beginning of a whirlwind that stretched decades, leading to a marriage with Bruce Jenner, motherhood, and more drama than she could have imagined. Now, for the first time, Linda opens up about it all, telling the extraordinary story of her life, career, epic romances, and everything in between. Going inside the wild stories and tender moments with Elvis, Linda paints a romance as raucous as it is refreshing. But despite the joy they shared, Elvis also had darkness, which ended their relationship shortly before his untimely death. It was in the difficult aftermath of Elvis's death that Linda found what she believed was her true home: the arms of Bruce Jenner. Linda reveals the "perfect" life they built before Bruce changed everything with a secret he'd carried his entire life, one that Linda kept for nearly thirty years. From living with the King to her marriage with legendary music producer and musician David Foster, Linda Thompson lovingly recounts her incredible journey, bringing unparalleled insight into a trio of remarkable people she loved.
