Lovers and Players by Jackie Collins
Amy Scott-Simon, a beguilingly pretty young New York heiress, is engaged to marry Max Diamond, an older powerful real estate tycoon. At her bachelorette party, she runs into Jett, Max's younger half-brother who is fresh back from Italy, where he is a successful male model. They have no idea who each other are. A one night fling leads to complications and regrets. Meanwhile, Chris Diamond - a hot L.A entertainment lawyer - flies into town to meet with his two brothers and Red Diamond, the boys' dysfunctional billionaire father. Working as Red's housekeeper is Diahann, whose stunning bi-racial nineteen-year-old daughter, Liberty, does not approve of her mother's occupation. As Liberty pursues the dreams her mother once had, to sing, Damon P. Donnell, married hip-hop mogul supreme, pursues her. And then there is Mariska, Max's Russian socialite ex-wife, a woman with more secrets than anyone, secrets that ultimately lead to her brutal and mysterious murder. As the lives of these characters intertwine over a seven day period in New York, power, love, sex, money and fame are the ties that bind - emotionally and otherwise - in this highly charged love story about family relationships, deadly choices and dangerous sex.
