A wild ride from London and New York to Hollywood and Amazonian jungles, with a rock-and-roll superstud and a beauty queen with sky-high ambitions who find their dreams and nightmare are about to come true – from the iconic author and subject of the Netflix documentary Lady Boss.

A book that left burn marks on night tables across continents, 'Lovers And Gamblers 'has become a Collins classic. It features two of her most memorable characters: Al King, the rock-and-roll superstud who is everything any sex-crazed groupie ever imagined her hero to be; and Dallas, the beauty queen whose sky-high ambitions stem from a sordid secret–the type that tabloids tingle to tell. 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.

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.Jackie Collins has been called a “raunchy moralist” by the late director Louis Malle and “Hollywood’s own Marcel Proust” by Vanity Fair magazine. With more than 500 million copies of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with some thirty New York Times bestsellers to her credit, Jackie Collins is one of the world’s top-selling novelists. She is known for giving her readers an unrivaled insider’s knowledge of Hollywood and the glamorous lives and loves of the rich, famous, and infamous. “I write about real people in disguise,” she says. “If anything, my characters are toned down-the truth is much more bizarre.”Visit Jackie’s website at, and follow her on Instagram and Twitter at JackieJCollins, Facebook at, and Pinterest at
