Owner of the luxurious and exclusive Keyscomplex in Las Vegas, Lucky Santangelo comes up against Armet Askarani, a ruthless billionaire middle-easterner potentate with three wives, who has little regard for women except as sexual playthings or breeding mares.
Armet wishes to purchasethe Keys, and is shocked when he hears that Lucky has no desire to sell – whatever the price. That a mere woman would turn him down is insulting and unthinkable. And so the battle for power begins…
Meanwhile, Lucky's hot son, Bobby Santangelo Stanislopoulos is opening a branch of his successful private late night club Moodin Lucky's hotel, and inadvertently becomes involved in his close friend Frankie Romano's gambling and major drug problems, causing much friction between him and his girlfriend, Los Angeles Assistant District Attorney, Denver Jones.
Back in L.A., Max, Bobby's wild and gorgeous teenage sister is getting restless. Not interested in college, she fights with Lucky and suddenly takes off for New York and a series of adventures which could become deadly...
The 73-year-old chick lit doyenne of raunchy romance presents No. 27 with a revival of her most popular character, Lucky Santangelo (whose debut in the 1981 blockbuster Chances made the prolific Brit author as popular as big-sister actress Joan). But as kick-ass as the now 50-something Lucky is operating ancient patriarch Gino's Las Vegas hotel empire as it comes under siege from a menacing royal brat with pervy sexual proclivities and a nasty drug habit the packed plot belongs to the next generation: Lucky's 17-year-old mini-me daughter, Max; hot-and-handsome oldest son, Bobby; and all the lovers and losers the spoiled duo cycle through with giddy abandon. There's never a doubt Collins's cast of strong women, and the guys who chose them, will ferret out true love and survive. But that's not entirely the point in this delicious, manic tale of rich people behaving badly, getting everything they deserve, and leaving enough loose ends to warrant an inevitable sequel.
