The seductively beautiful, street-smart, and powerful Lucky Santangelo, star of four of Jackie Collins's previous international number-one bestsellers -- Chances, Lucky, Lady Boss, and Vendetta: Lucky's Revenge -- returns in Dangerous Kiss.
In Chances, Lucky grew up in a top crime family; in Lucky, she was married three times; in Lady Boss, she took on Hollywood and bought Panther Studios; and in Vendetta, she fought off a lifelong enemy to keep the studio, and her husband.
Now, in Dangerous Kiss, when a member of her family is brutally gunned down in a random holdup, her fury knows no bounds. While she is tracking the killer, her relationship with her husband, charismatic writer and director Lennie Golden, is put to the test. Then, suddenly, into her life comes a man from her past -- a man with a dangerous kiss.
Dangerous Kiss is a story of raw anger, love, lust, murder, and revenge, and at its white-hot center is Lucky Santangelo, a strong, exciting woman who dares to take chances -- and always wins.
In Dangerous Kiss, you will encounter many familiar faces, among them:
Brigette Stanislopoulos, Lucky's twenty-five-year-old goddaughter -- an heiress due to become one of the richest women in the world. Now a top supermodel in New York, Brigette is put in desperate peril when she meets a man who is out to ruin her life.
Alex Woods, a Hollywood producer with a lethal smile and a deadly obsession...
Venus Maria, America's most controversial superstar...and...
Charlie Dollar, the off-the-wall, fifty-something movie star with an eye for teenage girls.
You will also meet an exciting cast of newcomers:
Count Carlo Vittorio Vitti, a dangerously handsome playboy with his own twisted agenda...
Lina, a devastatingly sexy black supermodel with an insatiable yen for men, money, and a big film career...
Price Washington, a famous black comedian with a crack-addicted past...
Teddy Washington, his sixteen-year-old son who unintentionally gets caught up in murder...
Claudia, a simple Italian girl with a secret from Lennie's past that will rock Lucky's world...
And the Kopistanis:
Irena -- Price's Russian housekeeper who knows all his secrets; and
Mila -- her eighteen-year-old daughter with a heart of steel and the cunning of a fox.

About the author (1999)

There have been many imitators, but only Jackie Collins can tell you what really goes on in the fastest lane of all. From Beverly Hills bedrooms to a raunchy prowl along the streets of Hollywood; from glittering rock parties and concerts to stretch limos and the mansions of power brokers—Jackie Collins chronicles the real truth from the inside looking out.

Jackie Collins has been called a “raunchy moralist” by the late director Louis Malle and “Hollywood’s own Marcel Proust” by Vanity Fair magazine. With more than 500 million copies of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with some thirty New York Times bestsellers to her credit, Jackie Collins is one of the world’s top-selling novelists. She is known for giving her readers an unrivaled insider’s knowledge of Hollywood and the glamorous lives and loves of the rich, famous, and infamous. “I write about real people in disguise,” she says. “If anything, my characters are toned down—the truth is much more bizarre.”
