The Power Trip

introduced by Lucy Vine

About The Book

Featuring a brand new introduction from bestselling author, Lucy Vine, talking about what Jackie and her books mean to her! 

‘Only Jackie Collins gets to be a noun and a verb and an adjective’ LUCY VINE

In the world of the ultra-rich, a supermodel celebrates her birthday with a cruise on her billionaire boyfriend’s yacht. The guest list is small: five power couples, including a movie star, a sports hero and a senator. It’s an invitation no one can refuse. And a trip no one will ever forget.

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

There have been many imitators but only ever one Jackie Collins. The iconic British author was called 'the definition of a class act' by Graham Norton and a 'smart, talented and gorgeous woman who paved the road for many of us' by Sandra Bullock. With millions of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with thirty-one international bestsellers to her credit, she is one of the world's top-selling novelists. Her first novel, The World Is Full of Married Men, was published in 1968 and established Jackie as an author who dared to step where no other female writers had gone before. Jackie was awarded an OBE in 2013 for her services to literature and charity. When accepting the honour 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!'
