“So hot it will have to be printed on asbestos.” - Liz Smith, New York Daily News
Fierce, sharp, and wildly beautiful Lucky Santangelo, Jackie Collins’s own favorite character, returns for more scandal, scheming, and pulse-pounding drama in the second book of the internationally bestselling Lucky Santangelo series.
As she arrives in Las Vegas, Lucky’s focused on getting her father Gino to sign off on some new developments underway in Atlantic City. But when opportunity strikes, Lucky’s always ready—and now she has the chance to take on heading a casino complex right in Vegas.
Lucky’s past always seems to catch up with her though, and she’s surprised to discover that aging billionaire Dimitri Stanislopoulos is also in Vegas, with his daughter, Olympia, Lucky’s long lost friend. Kindred spirits who were both painfully out of place in the stodgy boarding school they were forced to attend, Lucky and Olympia had run off together, landing at a French villa where they stayed with Olympia’s much older Hollywood producer lover—until their dads found out. They never spoke again, for decades, until now, although Lucky may learn some friendships are best left behind.
Maybe the most unexpected surprise for Lucky, though, is finding love with rising comedian Lennie Golden. But will she be too much for him. . . and will he be enough for her?
Packed with colorful characters and coursing with passion, suspense, and round-the-world adventure, from California, to Paris, from New York to a private Greek island, this decadent story is a gripping thrill ride of dangerous passion and power at any cost—at once a richly satisfying saga and a perfect poolside read as only Jackie Collins could write it!
Adapted in the 90s into a highly successful NBC mini-series, the Santangelo novels are currently being developed for TV once again by Working Title Productions and the updated series is set to be compulsive, sexy and totally binge-worthy!

Well Ms. Collins, I had never read your work before thinking that it was all fluffy romance crap but I am really impressed. I like it and when I like an author, I read everything they write.
A new fan!
