A luxurious yacht in the Sea of Cortez, a birthday cruise for one of the world's most beautiful women and an invitation no one can refuse. "The Power Trip--"take it if you dare.

From Hollywood icon and mega-seller Jackie Collins comes a thrilling new novel, "The Power Trip," set on a state of the art luxury yacht off the coast of Cabo San Lucas. A tropical getaway with a cast of global power-hungry elites turns sour when they find out maybe they don't control as much of the world as they thought . . .
In "The Power Trip" you will meet Aleksandr Kasianenko, a billionaire Russian oligarch, as he sets sail on "The Bianca." You'll meet his sexy supermodel girlfriend, whom "The Bianca" is named after, and five dynamic, powerful, and famous couples invited on the yacht's maiden voyage: Hammond Patterson, a driven Senator, and his lovely but unhappy wife, Sierra; Cliff Baxter, a charming, never-married movie star, and his ex-waitress girlfriend, Lori; Taye Sherwin, a famous black UK footballer and his interior designer wife, Ashley; Luca Perez, a male Latin singing sensation with his older decadent English boyfriend, Jeromy; and Flynn, a maverick journalist with his Asian renegade female friend, Xuan.
You will also meet Russian mobster, Sergei Zukov, a man with a grudge against Aleksandr. And Sergei's Mexican beauty queen girlfriend, Ina, whose brother, Cruz, is a master pirate with orders to hold "The Bianca" and its illustrious rota of guests for ransom.
"The Power Trip" explorers the decadent playgrounds of the super-rich . . . and leaves you hungry for more.

Review by Library Journal (2013-01-18)

A famous actor, athlete, journalist, politician, pop star, and their not-so-famous guests receive Huber-exclusive invitations to join a super model and her Russian billionaire boyfriend on his yacht's maiden voyage for lots of luxurious R&R. Alas, the guests and crew end up in peril owing to a vengeful mobster's unfinished business with the Russian.

Verdict: Starting with a bang, best-selling author Collins's latest potboiler gives readers a break from winter with a steamy soap opera set on the Sea of Cortez. Like an episode of the cheesy but popular 1970s TV series The Love Boat, there is lots of romantic drama on the tropical waters, but readers familiar with Collins know to expect plenty of X-rated scenes. They also know to expect brief chapters that keep the story moving at a brisk pace, characters that strongly resemble real celebrities, and lots of surprises. Collins more than delivers on all fronts. "Bonkbuster" fans will love it.
