Excerpts

From the book


Chapter One:

From the very beginning they were destined to be a lethal combination --

Lucky Santangelo and Lennie Golden. Two stubborn, crazy, smart people.

Lennie was tall and lanky, with dirty-blond hair and ocean-green eyes. He was

good-looking in an edgy, offhand way. Women loved his looks. At thirty-seven,

he'd finally made it as a movie star. He was the new breed -- a comedian of the

Eddie Murphy/Chevy Chase school. Cynical and funny, his films made big bucks --

the bottom line in Hollywood.

Lucky Santangelo Richmond Stanislopoulos Golden was the thrice married daughter

of the notorious Gino Santangelo. In her early thirties, she was darkly,

exotically beautiful, with a tangle of wild jet curls, dangerous, black eyes,

smooth, olive skin, a full sensual mouth, and a slim body. She was a fiercely

independent, strong-willed woman who never compromised and always took

chances.

Together they generated blazing heat. They'd been married for nearly a year,

and both looked forward to their wedding anniversary in September with a

mixture of delight and amazement. Delight, because they loved each other very

much. Amazement, because who'd ever thought it would last?

Currently Lennie was in Los Angeles shooting Macho Man for Panther

Studios. The film was a comedy takeoff on all the Hollywood superheroes --

Eastwood, Stallone, and Schwarzenegger.

They'd rented a beach house in Malibu, but while Lennie was filming, Lucky

chose to stay in New York where she headed a billion-dollar shipping

company -- left to her by her second husband, Dimitri Stanislopoulos. She also had

wanted Bobby, her six-and-a-half-year-old son by Dimitri, to be educated in

England, and being in New York meant she was closer to his English school.

On most weekends she either visited Bobby in London or Lennie in Los Angeles.

"My life is one long plane ride," she joked ruefully to friends. But everyone

knew Lucky thrived on activity, and to sit by Lennie's side playing movie

star's wife would have bored her. As it was, they had a volatile and passionate

marriage.

Macho Man was causing Lennie nothing but problems. Every night he called

Lucky with a litany of complaints. She listened patiently while he told her the

producer was a jerk; the director was a has-been lush; his leading lady was

sharing her bed with the producer; and Panther Studios was run by money-mad

grafters. He wanted out.

Lucky listened, smiling to herself. She was working on a deal that -- if all

went according to plan-would free him from the restrictions of answering to...
