Description

Jackie Collins' fierce and wildly beautiful heroine Lucky Santangelo is back with a vengeance—in a novel full of power, passion, revenge, and the raging family dynamics of the Santangelo clan—and, as always, Lucky comes out on top.
Lucky runs a high profile casino and hotel complex, The Keys in Vegas.
Lennie, her movie star husband, is still writing and directing successful independent movies, while Max, her stubborn and gorgeous teenage daughter is about to celebrate her 18th birthday, and her son, Bobby, owns a string of hot clubs. Lucky has everything. Family. Love. Life.
And everything is exactly what billionaire businessman Armand Jordan is determined to take from her one way or the other.
Born a Prince in the small but affluent Middle Eastern country of Akramshar, Armand comes to America with his American mother at an early age, and rises to become a real estate business titan. Armand regards women as nothing more than breeding mares or sexual playthings, so when his people inform him that the one property he covets more than anything, The Keys, is not for sale, he is shocked. That a mere woman would dare to turn down his offer to buy The Keys is unthinkable, and Armand vows to force Lucky's hand whatever it takes. And so the battle for power begins . . .
Meanwhile Bobby is dealing with shady Russian investors, while his girlfriend—smart and independent Denver Jones—is becoming a Deputy D.A. in the L.A. drug unit.
And Max, Bobby's seventeen year old sister, is busy embarking on a forbidden affair with a sexy young movie star. An affair they have to keep on the down-low lest Lucky finds out.
The word is that "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" and what happens in Goddess of Vengeance will blow your mind!

        Starred review from July 18, 2011
        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.

        January 1, 2012

        Lucky Santangelo (Dangerous Kiss; Drop Dead Beautiful), now fortysomething, is in her prime. Her grown children are happy and her husband every bit as passionate as when they first met. If a cocaine-addicted Middle Eastern prince weren't trying to buy her hotel out from under her, Lucky's life would be perfect--but no one messes with a Santangelo and gets away with it. Collins and actress Sydney Tamiia Poitier are the principal readers of this Hollywood-insider novel, and they are backed by a full cast. Collins bleeds power into Lucky, while Poitier is equal parts urbanity and insanity, depending on the character. The other narrators follow suit, with matched success. The prose is often joltingly repetitive and pedestrian, but that is not a flaw of the narration. Collins has a huge following, and given her penchant for strategic name-dropping, fans of Real Housewives will lap up Lucky's latest triumphs. ["Massively entertaining and perfectly paced, with just the right amount of narrative and dialog," read the review of the New York Times best-selling St. Martin's hc, LJ 9/1/11.--Ed.]--Jodi L. Israel, MLS, Birmingham, AL
