TOXIC BACHELORS
by Danielle Steel


RT Rating:
Category: MAINSTREAM FICTION
Publisher: Delacorte
Published: October 2005
Type: Mainstream Fiction

Steel explores three of New York's most confirmed bachelors. Artist Gray Hawk, wealthy philanthropist Charlie Harrington and entertainment attorney Adam Weiss enjoy their yearly month-long Mediterranean jaunt in Charlie's yacht. None of the three fortysomething friends want a long-term relationship.

But Gray meets New York gallery owner Sylvia Reynolds in Portofino, and the two become friends and then lovers upon their return to New York. Adam gets involved with young Maggie O'Malley and quickly warms to her beauty and independence. Charlie grows enamored with Carole Parker, a woman who runs a home for disadvantaged children. Will their romance survive her biggest secret?

Steel's latest, like many of her previous novels, explores the world of the rich and famous, complete with high-priced yachts, penthouse apartments and luxury cars. But the unique quality of this novel lies in her focus on romance from the point of view of three eligible bachelors whose lives dramatically change when they discover their perfect mates. This is an unusual twist to Steel's usual formulaic escapist fare. (Oct., 326 pp., $27.00)
