Hollywood Husbands are hot...Hollywood Husbands are
dynamic...Hollywood Husbands are sexy...

Jack Python is the hottest Hollywood Husband of all. He rules
nighttime T.V. and his controversial talk show burns up the ratings, while the
women he encounters melt. With one expensive divorce behind him, and involved
in a highly erotic affair with Oscar-winning actress Clarissa Browning, Jack
Python has power, charisma, success, and money. But sometimes everything isn't

Howard Soloman, head of Orpheus Studios, is the
man, the Hollywood King. Anything Howard wants, he gets. Including
women. The sweet smell of power and Howard's street-smart style reels them
in. Working for billionaire studio owner Zachary Klinger, a man with a whim of
iron, Howard has problems enough. And if Howard can't deliver daytime soap
megastar Silver Anderson at Klinger's command, he may lose his footing at the
top of the heap. Though in Hollywood it's said that when you fall, you fall up
-- from the top Howard has nowhere to go but down.

Mannon Cable is a superstar. With great looks and a body to
match, he is full of self-deprecating charm. Married briefly to gorgeous
Whitney Valentine, who left him to become a television superstar, he was hit by
the divorce where it really hurts -- his giant ego.

Jack Python, Howard Soloman, and Mannon Cable have been competitive friends for
years. Yet when Jade Johnson enters their lives, the least-expected one of the
self-styled "Three Comers" may have finally met his match.

Jade Johnson is a woman of the eighties. Strong, independent, a
top New York model, she comes to L.A. for a series of million-dollar TV
commercials. Jade is a dangerously beautiful woman with personal integrity and
a mind of her own. The Hollywood game fails to impress her, but slowly, surely,
she is sucked in. And, high roller that she is, if she must play, Jade will play to win.

HOLLYWOOD WIVES,with its ten-million copy sales, and its
spectacular success as a television mini-series, left Jackie Collins' devoted
audience avid for the other side of the story.




About the Author

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!”
