About this title

Synopsis:

On the heels of her sensational
New York Times bestseller
Dangerous Kiss, comes another
tantalizing Jackie Collins treat:
Lethal Seduction.


Madison Castelli, the beautiful, street-smart heroine of Jackie Collins's L.A. Connections series, returns in Lethal Seduction, an edgy novel full of danger, passion and suspense.

Madison is having problems -- her ex-live-in lover who walked out on her is trying to walk back in. Her new lover is giving her a hard time. And her father turns out to be a man with deadly secrets.

Set between the high-powered world of New York and the manic excitement of Las Vegas, Lethal Seduction is packed with all the intrigue and glamour fans have come to expect from Jackie Collins. This deliciously uninhibited tale of cover-ups, deception and mob involvement finds Jackie Collins at the height of her creative powers as the diverse cast of characters in Lethal Seduction take an exhilarating walk on the wild side, where nothing is ever exactly as it seems and danger is all around.

In Lethal Seduction you will also meet:

Jamie Nova -- a breathtakingly beautiful interior designer, who catches her Wall Street husband cheating.

Jake Sica -- a laid-back photographer not looking for a commitment.

Rosarita Falcon -- an ambitious and sexy would-be New York socialite with a yen to murder her husband.

Joel Blaine -- the playboy son of a billionaire with an unquenchable taste for public sex.

Carrie Hanlon -- a top supermodel with a degree in egomania and bitchery.

Dexter Falcon -- a handsome soap star with a romantic heart and an unbeatable body. And...

Kimm Florian -- a Native American gay detective with a dry wit and a big heart.

Together these characters will take you on a sometimes funny, sometimes sad trip guaranteed to seduce you all the way.

Review:

The maven of guilty pleasures is back with a vengeance! Jackie Collins is at her prurient best in Lethal Seduction, creating a cast of characters as flawed as they can possibly be and still be likable. At the center of the whirlwind is stunning Madison Castelli, introduced previously in Collins's L.A. Connections series. Madison is a no-nonsense journalist who specializes in revealing interviews with the rich and famous. She discovers that her own life is not exactly as it seems when she hires private investigator Kimm Florian to uncover the secrets of her family's past. It turns out Maddy's beloved father didn't make his fortune in investments but rather as a mob hit man. And his targets may have included her two mothers: her real mother, who was murdered when Maddy was just an infant, and Stella, the beautiful, distant woman Maddy always believed to be her mother. Add in a pesky ex-lover who wants her back and a commitment-phobic new boyfriend in photographer Jake Sica, and Maddy's life is spinning out of control.

But she's hardly alone. When Madison's best friend, Grace Kelly look-alike Jamie Nova, finds out that her so-called perfect husband is cheating on her, she will do anything (and anyone) to get back at him. But the most captivating story line is that of bitch supreme Rosarita Falcon, unhappily married to a handsome but unsuccessful soap opera star whose real name is Dick Cockranger. Rosarita is perfectly willing to stoop to murder-for-hire (with her dear old dad pulling the trigger) to get rid of her husband so she can be with Joel Blaine, public sex fanatic and son of billionaire Leon Blaine.

The stories merge in a spectacular crescendo at a Las Vegas prizefight, when a mysterious stranger, Vincent Castle, appears to save Maddy and Jamie from an awkward situation. Fans of Jackie Collins will hope they haven't seen the last of Madison Castelli. --Alison Trinkle
