Upcoming Review and Giveaway: Goddess of Vengeance by Jackie Collins

Goddess of Vengeance is scheduled for release on September 13.  You can pre-order at many fine retailers including Amazon. The people at Macmillan Audio were kind enough to forward the audiobook which I will be reviewing.  There will also be a giveaway with that review. My review will not be up until the later part of the week of September 19 so if you are interested in the purchasing the book, do not wait until then.  It is by Jackie Collins’, one of the world’s top novelists so you don’t need to wait for my review.
In the meantime, I will have a new review up on September 11, the ten year anniversary of 9/11. That review is the memoir of Lauren Manning and titled Unmeasured Strength. On September 11, Lauren was at the World Trade Center when a wall of flame burned more than 80 percent of her body. No one believed she would live to tell her story but she did offering hope to so many who lost loved ones that tragic day. Lauren's story is about her ten year journey of survival, strength and revival.  Lauren not only overcame tragedy but also, recreated her roles as a woman, a wife and a mother. Unmeasured Strength is now available through Macmillan Audio, Amazon, and other fine retailers. You will find that review and giveaway post on Sunday at my chronic illness blog, Living Life as I See Fit.

 Below is more information (from Macmillan Publishing) about Goddess of Vengeance by Jackie Collins.
 Lucky is Back!!!

By Jackie Collins
Read by Jackie Collins with Sydney Poitier and a full cast
Previous Praise for New York Times bestselling author Jackie Collins:
"Collins is at her best with this raunchy, retro hot-sheets romance… And it’s impossible not to fall for it. Again.” – PW on Poor Little Bitch Girl

“I was a Jackie Collins virgin… I have been guiltily, divertingly deflowered.” – Washington Post on Poor Little Bitch Girl
"Sexually charged." – Vanity Fair on Poor Little Bitch Girl
“Nothing says summer like lathering on the sunblock, laying in a lounge chair, and pulling a very steamy novel from the queen of romance from your beach bag.” – NBC’s TODAY on Married Lovers
 Jackie Collins’ fierce heroine Lucky Santangelo is back with a vengeance – in a novel full of power, passion, revenge, and the raging family dynamics of the Santangelo clan – and, as always, Lucky comes out on top!
Lucky runs a high-profile casino and hotel complex, The Keys, in Vegas. Lennie, her movie star husband, is still writing and directing successful independent movies, while Max, her stubborn and gorgeous teenage daughter, is about to celebrate her eighteenth birthday, and her son, Bobby, owns a string of hot clubs. Lucky has everything. Family. Love. Life. And everything is exactly what billionaire businessman Armand Jordan is determined to take away from her one way or another!
Born a prince in the small but affluent Middle Eastern country of Akramshar, Armand comes to American with his American mother at an early age and rises to become a real estate titan. Armand regards women as nothing more than breeding mares or sexual playthings, so when his people inform him that the one property he covets more than anything, The Keys, is not for sale, he is shocked. And so the battle for power begins…
Meanwhile, Bobby is dealing with shady Russian investors, while his girlfriend, smart and independent Denver Jones, is becoming a Deputy DA in the L.A. drug unit. And Max is busy embarking on a forbidden love affair with a sexy young movie star.
We all know that “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” but what happens in Goddess of Vengeance will blow your mind! With Jackie Collins, herself, reading as Lucky Santangelo, accompanied by a polished and delightfully racy-sounding cast, this audio blockbuster will entice Lucky virgins and devoted followers alike!
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. With more than 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. “I write about real people in disguise,” she says. “If anything, my characters are toned down – the truth is much more bizarre.”
