Scruples, Judith Krantz's  electrifying, world wide bestseller appeared fifteen  years ago and made book publishing history. Now  that unforgettable story, a story that marks an era,  a story that millions of readers wish had never  ended . . . continues. Only a single night's sleep  seperates the lives of the characters in  Scruples from this mesmerizing sequel.  Billy Ikehorn is a contemporary woman living on a  grand scale. A self-made beauty and the exquisite  owner of a fabled Beverley Hills boutique called  Scruples and married to the Oscar-winning producer  Vito Orsini. To those who only know her from  afar, she seems to lead a dream existence, wrapped in  all the power of glamout, riches, and success.  Then a stranger arrives in Billy's life--Gigi  Orsini, Vito's sixteen-year-old daughter by an early  marriage. Independent, deeply interesting,  street-smart, and enchantingly humorous, Gigi captures  Billy's heart and sets in motion a train of utterly  unexpected events. Life with Gigi hold both joy and  pain for Spider Elliot and Valentine O'Neill,  Billy's partners in Scruples. The many new freinds  Gigi makes during the next five years will grow  important to Billy in ways she could never have  forseen. Scruples Two moves swiflty  and unexpectadly, filled with breathtaking change,  from California to New York to Paris, following  two of the most fascinating and touching females in  modern fiction, Billy Ikehorn and Gigi Orsini.

About the Author:

Judith Krantz, one of the world's bestselling novelists, lives in Bel Air and Newport Beach, California.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Krantz gives fans another dizzying spin around the glitter world of high fashion, hot sex, and Hollywood, picking up in 1978 with a pregnant Billy Ikehorn (of Scruples, 1977) the night after her new husband, Italian producer Vito Orsini, wins the Oscar (but, of course). Billy's marital bliss lasts a nanosecond before Vito cheats, she miscarries, they divorce, and Billy once again is glamorously jet-setting to New York, Hong Kong, Paris, wherever, opening namesakes of her famous boutique worldwide. We're reacquainted with the old gang, especially partners Spider Elliot and Valentine O'Neill, as Krantz interweaves their lives with those of Billy's new and ever widening circle, which now places her teenage stepdaughter Gigi (from her marriage to Vito) right in the center and ripe for picking. Billy continues to pour her passionate energy into projects--her stores, Gigi, a mansion, and a double life with sculptor Sam Jamison in Paris, and--ultimately--a mail-order boutique called Scruples Two. Meanwhile, tragedies strike, loves are won and lost, loyalties betrayed, backs bitten, and sex--always hot and sometimes kinky--is had by almost all. Krantz's all-knowing narrator, the quintessential gossip mogul who has the goods on everyone, knowing each inside out, dishes it out with such relish and appeal that it's hard not to be hooked from beginning to end, even when the designer and dominatrix references begin to grow stale. Pure, delicious fun. (Literary Guild Dual Selection for August) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
