Featuring a brand new introduction from Alexandra Heminsley, talking about what Jackie and her books mean to her! 'What radiates from all of her novels is a sense that women are just as capable of great things as men' ALEXANDRA HEMINSLEY Dallas is a beauty queen with a secret - the kind tabloids love. Al King is a soul superstar and legendary stud. Together, they're on a wild ride from London to New York, from Hollywood to Rio and the steaming jungles of the Amazon, where all their dreams and nightmares are about to come true.

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.

'A true inspiration, a trail blazer for women's fiction' JILLY COOPER 'Jackie shows us all what being a strong, successful woman means at any age' MILLY JOHNSON 'Jackie will never be forgotten, she'll always inspire me to #BeMoreJackie' JILL MANSELL 'Jackie's heroines don't take off their clothes to please a man, but to please themselves' CLARE MACKINTOSH 'Legend is a word used too lightly for so many undeserving people, but Jackie is the very definition of the word' ALEX KHAN 'What Jackie knew how to do so well, is to tell a thumping good story' ROWAN COLEMAN 'Here is a woman who not only wanted to entertain her readers, but also to teach them something; about the world and about themselves' ISABELLE BROOM 'Lessons galore on every page... about feminism, equality, tolerance and love' CARMEL HARRINGTON 'Jackie is the queen of cliff-hangers' SAMANTHA TONGE 'For all her trademark sass, there is a moralist at work here' LOUISE CANDLISH 'Nobody does it quite like Jackie and nobody ever will' SARRA MANNING 'Jackie wrote about Hollywood with total authenticity, breaking all the rules and taboos' BARBARA TAYLOR BRADFORD 'Collins was saying that women didn't have to centre round men, either in books or in life' JESSIE BURTON 'Jackie lived the Hollywood dream, but, she looked sideways at it, and then shared the dirt with her readers' JULIET ASHTON
