They were the best of friends and the most daunting of bachelors: Charlie Harrington, a handsome philanthropist, has such high expectations for his perfect bride that no mortal need apply; Adam Weiss, a forty-something celebrity lawyer, prefers his women very young, very voluptuous, and very short-term; and for Gray Hawk, a gifted artist with a knack for attracting troubled relationships, women are fine…it’s just the idea of family he can’t imagine.

Now the three friends, spending their annual summer vacation cruising the Mediterranean aboard Charlie’s majestic yacht, are about to have their bachelorhood rocked. By autumn all three will fall precipitously 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 his 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, and with it a turning point in each man’s life, 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.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 2/3/2014

    " My first Danielle Steel novel -- I read this more as research for my own writing, to see how she handled the male POV in a romance novel. It was entertaining, but predictable, and I found the internal dialog to be repetitive. It was a light read with a happy ending. Not really my cup of tea. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meghan | 1/29/2014

    " Nothing unexpected in a Danielle Steel novel. I just can't wait for "Breaking Dawn"! I've had to resort to Steel for some romantic storyline, and let's face it -- sub par! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 1/16/2014

    " Love the ability to get lost in the lives of others who live a life so unlike your own. Seriously, how many of us have the ability to spend a month on a 240 foot yacht with our two best friends? "

    " AMAAAZING!!! I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. I was unenthusiastic about reading it at first. The only reason I started it in the first place was lack of another book. It turned out to be one of my favorite books of all time!!! I loooooooooooooooved the ending, particuly adam's ending. I breezed through this book so quickly and couldn't put it down. Great summer read!! Ily, danielle steel! "
