They were the best of friends and the most daunting of bachelors . . . . Charlie Harrington, a charming, handsome philanthropist, has such high expectations for his perfect bride that no mortal need apply . . . Adam Weiss, a forty-something celebrity lawyer, prefers his women very young, very voluptuous, and very short term . . . And for Gray Hawk, a gifted artist with a knack for attracting troubled relationships, women are fine; it's just the idea of family he can't imagine (particularly the family of the woman he's dating).

Now, the three friends, spending their annual summer vacation cruising the Mediterranean aboard Charlie's majestic yacht, are about to have their bachelorhoods rocked. By autumn, all three will fall precipitously into relationships they never saw coming. Charlie begins dating a crusading social worker who couldn't be further from his ideal - until he makes a stunning discovery about her. Adam gets involved with his usual twenty-something bombshell - only this one has a remarkable mind of her own. And Gray, who has avoided both business and family like the plague, has managed to fall head over heels for a successful career woman - who just happens to be a mother as well.

As another holiday on the yacht approaches, and with it, a turning point in each man's life, the three bachelors are forced to face the things that scare them most: their phobias about relationships, the wounds of the past - and the kind of women who challenge their deepest terrors. What happens next will spark big changes for Charlie, Adam, and Gray - and might just put an end to their carousing days forever. For as the once-carefree trio is about to discover, love is the most unpredictable adventure of all.

Filled with all the joy, complexity and unexpected surprises of life, Toxic Bachelors is Danielle Steel at her poignant and penetrating best.

The perils of dating... and the unexpected surprises of life

They were the best of friends and the most dedicated of bachelors - but Charles, Adam and Gray, spending their annual summer holiday cruising the Mediterranean,are about to have their single lives rocked to the core. By the time autumn comes, all threewill tumble headlong into relationships they never saw coming, and for a while, they're not sure if their dreams or worst nightmares have come true.

Charles - in search of the perfect socialite bride, he falls for a crusading social worker who couldn't be further from his ideal, or so it seems.
Adam - always preferring his women mindless and very young, he finds one who has a mind of her own, and as sharp as his. In short order, she beats him at his own game.
Gray - having fought shy of family commitments all his life, he discovers love with a successful career woman who also happens to be a mother, and whose family is essential to her - much to his chagrin.

As the once-carefree trio finds out, love is the most unpredictable adventure of all...
