"Bringing together a cast of fascinating characters in a riveting tale of ambition and corruption, politics, passion, and ultimate justice, Dangerous Games is a thrilling drama from #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel. Television correspondent Alix Phillips dodges bullets and breaks rules to bring the most important news to the world--from riots in America to protests on the streets of Tehran. With her daughter in college, and working alongside cameraman Ben Chapman, a deeply private ex-Navy SEAL, Alix revels in the risks and whirlwind pace of her work. But her latest assignment puts her at the center of an explosive story that will reshape many lives, including her own: investigating damning allegations involving the vice president of the United States, Tony Clark. Alix starts with a nationally revered woman who may be the key to exposing frightening secrets. Olympia Foster is the fragile, reclusive widow of America's most admired senator, who had been destined for the presidency before an assassin's bullet felled him. Since then, Olympia has found emotional support from Clark, who once wanted her as his wife and now stands as her protector and confidant. When Alix begins to dig deeper, federal agents pick up the trail. Then the threats begin. As the stakes rise in this dangerous game, Alix needs Ben's help as never before. And soon they realize they are grappling with an adversary far more sinister than they had imagined"-- Provided by publisher.

Collins, Jackie — Entertaining tales of tawdry affairs, tragic circumstances and scandals are bread and butter for fast paced authors Jackie Collins and Danielle Steel. These prolific authors write about modern women who will do anything to achieve their goals. -- Tara Bannon Williamson
Delinsky, Barbara — Like Steel, Delinsky writes romantic stories focused more on women and issues in their lives. Delinsky's books feature more ordinary women, while Steel often mentions the brand names and details of elegant living. -- Katherine Johnson
Bradford, Barbara Taylor, 1933- — Although Barbara Taylor Bradford previously concentrated on family sagas. More recently, however, she has followed the example of Steel and focused more on the stories of individual women. Rich and famous trappings, along with strong working women protagonists and their emotional stories make her an excellent choice for Steel's fans. -- Krista Biggs
Sparks, Nicholas — Steel's legion fans should also be introduced to Nicholas Sparks and his contemporary, romantic, emotional stories of love lost and found. Although he sets his novels in small towns, away from the bright lights and brand names, they touch on the same heartfelt dilemmas. -- Krista Biggs

★☆☆☆☆ Dangerous Games

By Patron90485 on Wed, 15 Mar 2017 13:02:41

Here I go again....reading her books as fast as she cranks them out and being disappointed every time. Whatever danger and excitement you think there will be in the book actually feels forced and predictable. The ending in my opinion feels like it was rushed and deliberately left unresolved, maybe to eventually have a sequel?
