Description

THE FABULOUS HEROINE OF CHANCES RETURNS. SHE'S A HOT-BLOODED BEAUTY IN LOVE WITH POWER, HUNGRY FOR PLEASURE... WILD, NOTORIOUS, TROUBLE... SHE'S... LUCKY With the sensual grace of a panther, Lucky Santangelo prowled her Las Vegas casino, restless, ready, eager for action. That night began a dazzling odyssey, filled with dangerous passion and sun-drenched sex, sadistic vengeance and breathless suspense. From the decadent luxury of California, to Paris, New York and a private Greek island, Lucky fought for her father's honor, for ruthless triumph, for the wild card of a fabulous love. Her rivals; an ice-cold Hollywood wife... a much-married heiress strung out on cocaine... a jaded magnate hooked on power...a crazed hoodlum lusting for murder. But Lucky was a gambler and a lover, a woman who ruled her empire and pursued her man with the potent Santangelo strength... her way, on her terms, whatever the odds. Jackie Collins tops the sensational success of "Hollywood Wives" and "Chances" with "Lucky", "so hot it will have to be printed on asbestos." --Liz Smith, The New York Daily News

About Jackie Collins

There have been many imitators, but only ever one Jackie Collins.

The iconic British author has been called a "raunchy moralist" by the director Louis Malle and "Hollywood's own Marcel Proust" by Vanity Fair.

With millions of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with thirty-one New York Times bestsellers to her credit, she is one of the world's top-selling novelists.

From glamorous Beverly Hills bedrooms to Hollywood move studios; from glittering rock concerts in London to the yachts of Russian billionaires, Jackie Collins chronicled the scandalous lives of the rich, famous, and infamous from the inside looking out.

"I write about real people in disguise," she once said. "If anything, my characters are toned down--the truth is much more bizarre!"

Her first novel, The World is Full of Married Men, was published in 1968 and established Collins as an author who dared to step where no other female writers had gone before. She followed it year after year with one successful title after another, including Chances, the first installment of a sprawling nine-book saga introducing the street-smart, sexy, and dynamic Lucky Santangelo. The eighties saw Jackie hitting her stride with the seminal blockbuster, Hollywood Wives, as well as Lucky, Hollywood Husbands, and Rock Star. In recent years she kept fans entertained with Poor Little Bitch Girl, The Power Trip, and her final novel, The Santagelos, never wavering on her commitment to take her readers on a "wild ride"!

Six of her novels have been adapted for film or TV and Universal Pictures has recently optioned the Santangelo series with a view to bringing Lucky to the big screen.

Jackie was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) by the Queen of England in 2013 for her services to literature and charity. When accepting the honor she said to the Queen, "Not bad for a school drop-out"--a revelation capturing her belief that both passion and determination can lead to big dreams coming true.

Jackie Collins lived in Beverly Hills where she had a front row seat to the lives she so accurately captured in her compulsive plotlines. She was a creative force, a trailblazer for women in fiction and in her own words "A kick-ass writer!"
