I, like many readers who stumbled into the wonderful habit of reading by picking up books from the second hand/used bookstore out of sheer curiosity know who Danielle Steel is in the world of Books & Authors.
She is one of the most popular writers, she has sold millions of copies of her stories. There was a time initially in my Reading life when I devoured her books for lack of exposure to other authors; that was not the only reason that kept me turning the pages with ease. Her stories have a timeless quality and relevance. I remember reading Malice when I had just discovered the joys of reading, it was a difficult topic and a heartbreaking story but without a doubt kept me coming back for more by the author. I always look out for Danielle Steel books especially when I am browsing the used bookstores and pick them up whenever I can.
On last count I easily have 2 dozen of her books, that’s how much I enjoy her books especially as rereads.
Before you start wondering the purpose of this praise fest, I am helping Pan Macmillan India to spread the word on Danielle’s upcoming titles, they will be publishing 6 of them starting this year, 2017. First of which is upcoming thriller Dangerous Games.

Bringing together a cast of fascinating characters in a riveting tale of ambition and corruption, politics, passion, and ultimate justice, Dangerous Games is a thrilling drama from #1 New York Times bestselling author Danielle Steel.
Television correspondent Alix Phillips dodges bullets and breaks rules to bring the most important news to the world—from riots in America to protests on the streets of Tehran. With her daughter in college, and working alongside cameraman Ben Chapman, a deeply private ex–Navy SEAL, Alix revels in the risks and whirlwind pace of her work. But her latest assignment puts her at the center of an explosive story that will reshape many lives, including her own: investigating damning allegations involving the Vice President of the United States, Tony Clark.
Alix begins with a nationally revered woman who may be the key to exposing frightening secrets. Olympia Foster is the fragile, reclusive widow of America’s most admired senator, who had been destined for the presidency before an assassin’s bullet felled him. Since then, Olympia has found emotional support in Clark, who once wanted her as his wife and now stands as her protector and confidant. When Alix digs deeper, federal agents pick up the trail. Then the threats start.
As the stakes rise in this dangerous game, Alix needs Ben’s help as never before. And soon they realize they are grappling with an adversary far more sinister than they had imagined.
