I would like to introduce you to the following short story that reveals some of the diverse and colorful characters featured in my new full-length novel, The Power Trip - a sexy, sun-drenched thriller.
In the prequel you will meet Aleksandr Kasianenko, the powerful Russian oligarch. Bianca, the world famous mixed-race supermodel. And Flynn Hudson, tall, dark and smart, a journalist and activist that women automatically fall for. Flynn has problems, but he deals with them like a real man. He's super sexy, a true hero.
I had so much fun writing The Power Tripand creating so many characters. If you like this taster, then meet some of the other characters in the actual book. There is power couple, Ashley and Taye Sherwin, he's a black British football hero, she's an interior designer. Gay Latin superstar, Luca Perez, and his older boyfriend. Movie icon Cliff Baxter, with his much younger girlfriend. And cheating politician, Hammond Patterson, accompanied by his lovely but tortured wife.
What happens to this illustrious group while cruising on the Sea of Cortez on Aleksandr Kasianenko's luxury yacht? Read The Power Tripand see!
So enjoy this very small taster and prepare yourself for The Power Trip.
There have been many imitators, but only ever one Jackie Collins.
The iconic British author has been called a “raunchy moralist” by the director Louis Malle and “Hollywood’s own Marcel Proust” by Vanity Fair.
With millions of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with thirty-one New York Times bestsellers to her credit, she is one of the world’s top-selling novelists.
From glamorous Beverly Hills bedrooms to Hollywood move studios; from glittering rock concerts in London to the yachts of Russian billionaires, Jackie Collins chronicled the scandalous lives of the rich, famous, and infamous from the inside looking out.
“I write about real people in disguise,” she once said. “If anything, my characters are toned down—the truth is much more bizarre!”
Her first novel, The World is Full of Married Men, was published in 1968 and established Collins as an author who dared to step where no other female writers had gone before. She followed it year after year with one successful title after another, including Chances, the first installment of a sprawling nine-book saga introducing the street-smart, sexy, and dynamic Lucky Santangelo. The eighties saw Jackie hitting her stride with the seminal blockbuster, Hollywood Wives, as well as Lucky, Hollywood Husbands, and Rock Star. In recent years she kept fans entertained with Poor Little Bitch Girl, The Power Trip, and her final novel, The Santagelos, never wavering on her commitment to take her readers on a “wild ride”!
Six of her novels have been adapted for film or TV and Universal Pictures has recently optioned the Santangelo series with a view to bringing Lucky to the big screen.
Jackie was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) by the Queen of England in 2013 for her services to literature and charity. When accepting the honor she said to the Queen, “Not bad for a school drop-out”—a revelation capturing her belief that both passion and determination can lead to big dreams coming true.
Jackie Collins lived in Beverly Hills where she had a front row seat to the lives she so accurately captured in her compulsive plotlines. She was a creative force, a trailblazer for women in fiction and in her own words “A kick-ass writer!”
