They were the best of friends and the most daunting of bachelors: Charlie Harrington, a charming, handsome philanthropist; Adam Weiss, a forty-something celebrity lawyer; and Gray Hawk, a gifted artist with a knack for attracting troubled relationships. Now they are spending their annual summer vacation cruising the Mediterranean aboard Charlie's majestic yacht, completely unaware that by autumn, all three will fall into relationships they never saw coming. Charlie begins dating a crusading social worker who couldn't be further from his ideal -- until he makes a stunning discovery about her. Adam gets involved with is usual twenty-something bombshell -- only this one has a remarkable mind of her own. And Gray, who has avoided both business and family like the plague, has managed to fall head over heels for a successful career woman -- who just happens to be a mother as well.
As another holiday on the yacht approaches, the three bachelors are forced to face the things that scare them most: their phobias about relationships, the wounds of the past -- and the kind of women who challenge their deepest terrors. What happens next will spark big changes for Charlie, Adam, and Gray -- and might just put an end to their carousing days forever. For as the once-carefree trio is about to discover, love is the most unpredictable adventure of all.
Filled with all the joy, complexity, and unexpected surprises of life, Toxic Bachelors is Danielle Steel at her poignant and penetrating best.
