Hollywood Wives

introduced by Helen Ellis

About The Book

Whether you're new to the world of Jackie Collins, or you know her books intimately, you’ll find something to love in the achingly sexy Hollywood Wives, featuring an introduction from Helen Ellis.

‘When I was thirteen, Jackie Collins showed me how to be brave. You write what no one thinks you can write. You ask for money no one wants to admit that you’ve earned. You fight for your marriage when your husband has failed you’ HELEN ELLIS

They lunch at Ma Maison on salads and hot gossip. They cruise Rodeo Drive, turning shopping at Giorgio and Gucci into an art form. These are Hollywood wives and they hold the keys to the kingdom.

But when your ticket to ride is a famous husband, there are no guarantees. This scorching blockbuster exposes the glittering bitchery of Beverly Hills before racing to a chilling and unexpected climax.

There have been many imitators, but only ever one Jackie Collins.  With millions of her books sold around the world, and thirty-one New York Times bestsellers, she is one of the world’s top-selling novelists. From glamorous Beverly Hills bedrooms to Hollywood movie studios; from glittering rock concerts to the yachts of billionaires, Jackie chronicled the scandalous lives of the rich, famous, and infamous from the inside looking out.

About The Author

Jackie Collins has been called a “raunchy moralist” by the director Louis Malle and “Hollywood’s own Marcel Proust” by Vanity Fair. With over 500 million copies of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with thirty-two New York Times bestsellers to her credit, she is one of the world’s top-selling novelists. Six of her novels have been adapted for film or TV. Collins 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. She 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!” Her fascinating life as a writer and icon is explored in the Netflix CNN Films and Netflix documentary Lady Boss: The Jackie Collins Story.
