CHANCES by Jackie Collins
By SMW Staff
The book that made Jackie Collins one of America’s favorite authors, is now available for eReaders in the US and Canada for $7.99.
Of all Jackie Collins’ memorable characters, Lucky Santangelo rises far above the rest. Lucky’s mix of “celebrity fantasy and godfather justice” (*Publishers Weekly) lends her an air of near-superhero status, while also giving her an empowering everywoman appeal that has resonated deeply with generations of readers.
With 400 million copies of her books sold world-wide and 28 New York Times bestsellers written, Jackie Collins books written before 1999 have not been available for eReaders in the US marketplace until recently. In April, Jackie re-released an modernized version of THE BITCH. CHANCES is the first of the Lucky saga to be released for eBook.
CHANCES takes readers from the sophisticated playgrounds of Europe to the glittering gambling palaces of Las Vegas. It plunges you into the reckless, dangerous world of the Santangelo crime family. It introduces you to Gino Santangelo, the street kid who makes it all the way to the top. And then brings you Lucky—his sensual, stunningly beautiful, and passionate daughter; a woman who dares to win her father’s empire for herself; a woman unafraid of taking…CHANCES.
“My fans on Twitter and Facebook asked me daily when my older books will be available for their eReaders,” said Collins. “I thought the summer was the perfect time to re-introduce CHANCES. Plus I want to introduce younger readers to The Santangelos as I expect there will be many more books to put out about them.”
Handsome, hot-blooded, hard-to-handle Gino Santangelo took CHANCES.
On the city streets where he staked his guts and brains to build an empire. In the arms of women he used and discarded…until he met the girl of his dreams. But the biggest chance he ever took was when he fled America to escape prosecution and trusted his empire to someone else…
Lucky Santangelo his daughter, stunning, sensual, spoiled, a female version of himself as hooked on pleasure as he, as keen for power, as ready to take CHANCES.
About the author
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 over 400 million copies of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with some twenty-seven 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 unrivalled 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.”
