The Mistress
The Mistress: A Novel | Danielle Steel
15 posts | 22 read | 2 to read
Incomparable storyteller Danielle Steel illuminates rarely glimpsed precincts of unimaginable wealth and power, where love and freedom are the most dangerous desires of all. Natasha Leonovas beauty saved her life. Discovered on a freezing Moscow street by a Russian billionaire, she has lived for seven years under his protection, immersed in rarefied luxury, while he pursues his activities in a dark world that she guesses at but never sees. Her home is the world, often on one of Vladimir Stanislass spectacular yachts manned by scores of heavily armed crew members. Natashas job is to keep Vladimir happy, ask no questions, and be discreet. She knows her place, and the rules. She feels fortunate to be spoiled and protected, and is careful not to dwell on Vladimirs ruthlessness or the deadly circles he moves in. She experiences only his kindness and generosity and believes he will always keep her safe. She is unfailingly loyal to him in exchange. Theo Luca is the son of a brilliant, world famous, and difficult artist, Lorenzo Luca, who left his wife and son with a fortune in artwork they refuse to sell. Lorenzos widow, Maylis, has transformed their home in St. Paul de Vence into a celebrated restaurant decorated with her late husbands paintings, and treats it as a museum. There, on a warm June evening, Theo first encounters Natasha, the most exquisite woman he has ever seen. And there, Vladimir lays eyes on Lucas artwork. Two dangerous obsessions begin. Theo, a gifted artist in his own right, finds himself feverishly painting Natashas image for weeks after their first meeting. Vladimir, enraged that Lorenzos works are not for sale, is determined to secure a painting at any price. And Natasha, who knows that she cannot afford to make even one false move, nevertheless begins to think of a world of freedom she can never experience as Vladimirs mistress. She cannot risk her safety for another man, or even a conversation with him, as Theo longs for a woman he can never have. From Moscow to the Riviera, Paris, and London, The Mistress is a riveting tale of vast fortune, cruelty, creative genius, and daring courage, as uncompromising individuals chart a course for collision. From the Hardcover edition.

I gifted myself TWO subscriptions to @bookcaseclub for Christmas! Today I got my first boxes 🤗🤗🥰 when I started reading romance Danielle Steel novels were the first ones I picked up. But I haven‘t read one of her books in years. So I‘m excited to read her again. And to read all of the books!

Xmas pressie from my gran - not my usual genre but the plot sounds intriguing...

ColleenIsReading My mom was a big Danielle Steel fan in the 80s and I read a lot of her books as a teen. I remember them as being fluffy but enjoyable. No idea how they are these days. Is she still alive and doing her own writing? Or is she like Robert Ludlum or VC Andrews—long gone but the pseudonym remains? 11mo

Meh. Just okay. For me, this is not a typical Danielle Steel book that kept me turning the pages nor was I particularly thrilled with the characters or the ending. I didn't feel like there was a lot of character development particularly in Natasha. A little bit more so in Maylis. Sorry, but this one just didn't do it for me 😔

It's a quick read, but the writing is fairly repetitive. How have I not noticed that about DS before??? #daniellesteel

Furny I just finished this yesterday and thought the same. It seemed to repeat & repeat how grateful she was to him for saving her etc... but I enjoyed the art aspect.x 3y

Any Danielle Steel fans in the Litsy house? The library acquired her latest release, which has a 2017 copyright! I personally took several requests for this title a couple months ago. Many DS fans at my library. She has 6 shelves all to herself, she's so prolific! #TBRtemptation post! #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎
