Author Info
Danielle Steel
Educated in both France and New York, Danielle Steel began publishing in 1981 after a successful career in public relations and advertising. Her ensuing string of bestsellers earned her a mention in the "Guiness Book of World Records" for the 390 consecutive weeks during which at least one of her books could be found on the New York Times Bestseller List. Steel writes mostly contemporary romances with recurring themes of family, trust, and the search for true love. Steel has been married numerous times and has had a total of nine children. After her son Nick died of a drug overdose, Steel wrote "His Bright Light" (1998), a non-fiction account of his promising life and tragic death. In addition to having served as the National Chairperson for the American Library Association, she has acted as spokesperson for both the National Committee for the Prevention of Child Abuse and the American Humane Association. Steel spends part of each year at her Napa Valley ranch across the road from Francis Ford Coppola's estate. Her numerous pets have included a Vietnamese potbellied pig called Coco, named after Steel's favorite fashion designer, Coco Chanel.
"Pared down, Steel's latest is more shapely and energetic than her larger recent others, though there's always room for dillies like: 'she was wearing faded jeans wallpapered to her spectacular body.' A candied fantasy for seniors for whom 'Modern Maturity' just doesn't cut it."
From the Publisher
Annotation Hollywood widow Amanda has a daughter who is married to the son of the owner of a posh woman's clothing store. Amanda acquires an immediate distaste for Jack, but her wall soon crumbles and the two seniors fall into a passionate romance, much to the dismay of their children.
Editors Note At 59, Jack Watson owns one of the most successful boutiques in Beverly Hills, has two adult children who are the light of his life, and his choice of Hollywoods most beautiful women. After a failed marriage in the distant past, and a brief, tragic affair years afterward, Jack has become the perfect bachelor. And he loves it.Amanda Robbins knew Jack Watson only as her daughters father-in-law, an incurable playboy whom she dislikes intensely. Theirs had been a relationship based solely upon the marriage of her daughter to his son. And Amanda wants no other relationship with him. But when she becomes a widow unexpectedly, twenty-six years after she retired from Hollywood stardom to become a wife and mother, Amanda finds herself on unfamiliar ground, and is surprised to find herself both befriended by, and attracted to, Jack Watson. Worse yet, she likes him. There is a lot more to him than she previously suspected.Amandas shock at her attraction to Jack is equaled only by her children's. Then suddenly, a startling announcement stuns both families, as Jack and Amanda are faced with an unexpected gift that neither thought possible, and with a choice that provides them both considerable challenge. But at a time in their lives when they least expect to feel that way, they not only feel young again, but are blissfully happy, in spite of the confusion, opposition, and obstacles all around them. Special Delivery is about what two people do when life gives them everything they wanted, twenty years after they expected to find it. In her 40th bestselling novel, Danielle Steel makes us laugh and cry as she touches the heart with tenderness and accuracy.
Editors Note 2 A delightfully contemporary story that explores the fun, the challenges, and the occasional absurdity of new beginnings, Steel's 40th novel--the third in a series of special format books--tells the story of two people who find love where and when they least expect it.
Editors Note 3 A contemporary romantic comedy, the author's fortieth novel captures the fun, the challenge, and the occasional embarrassment of starting a new relationship. Reprint.
