“With unfailing panache and a style that swoops from crisply cynical to downright voluptuous, Princess Daisy is a guaranteed winner.”—Cosmopolitan

She was born Princess Marguerite Alexandrovna Valensky. But everyone called her Daisy. She was a  blonde beauty living in a world of aristocrats and countless wealthy. Her father was a prince, a Russian nobleman. Her mother was an American movie goddess. Men desired her. Women envied her.  Daisy's life was a fairy tale filled with parties and  balls, priceless jewels, money and love. Then, suddenly, the fairy tale ended. And Princess Daisy had to start again, with nothing—except the secret she guarded from the day she was born.

Praise for Princess Daisy

“This page-turner is a champion.”People

“Judith Krantz has written the glamour novel of the year if not of the decade. Princess Daisy has the same storytelling assets as Scruples, only more of them. Glamour, glamour is everywhere.”John Barkham Reviews

“A positively gorgeous reading experience.”—Shirley Eder, Detroit Free Press

Princess Daisy soars to the heights of escapist entertainment. . . . It is delicious.”—Jill Gerson, Philadelphia Inquirer

Read an Excerpt

We could always shoot this on top of the RCA Building,” Daisy said, walking past the parapet, above which rose a high, metal railing designed to forestall would-be suicides. “They’re not nearly as paranoid as you Empire State people.” She gestured scornfully at the ledge behind her. “But, Mr. Jones, if it’s not the view from precisely here, the message just won’t be New York.”
