As in Hollywood Wives, Collins (Lucky colorfully depicts the brash hedonists of Tinseltown, most of whom are motivated by avarice, lust and conceit. The central trio in this lengthy saga consists of movie star Mannon Cable, studio executive Howard Soloman and TV talk-show host Jack Python. Although Mannon has married compliant young Melanie-Shanna, he vows to win back his ex-wife, Whitney. Cocaine addict Howard pursues Whitney though he is wed to a gossipy society gadabout. Jack courts an illustrious actress, but he becomes infatuated with Jade Johnson, a willowy, self-possessed model. Jack's sister, imperious soap-opera star Silver Anderson, doesn't know that her lover is desperately trying to extricate himself from a potentially lethal business deal. While these escapades unfold, we must guess which female was a sexually abused arsonist in the 1970s. Collins's devotees will probably relish the snappy dialogue, whirlwind pacing, irreverent humor and opulent locales that are her trademarks.

Hollywood Husbands main characters are: Jack Python, whose one hour weekly talk show is THE show to watch on tv; Howard Solomon is the head of Orpheus Studios and has a lot of power behind the camera; and Mannon Cable is an actor who is still in love with is ex wife Whitney, another super star in her own right. However, Mannon is currently married to a bimbo named Melanie-Shanna, who he married to make Whitney jealous.

The plotlines revolve around these characters, with a cast of many others including a dynamic character named Silver Anderson. Her storyline alone makes this book a good read!
