Despite hundreds of books and thousands of articles on Jackie Kennedy, surprisingly little is known about her mother's role in her life and achievements. Often dismissed as a social climber who faded into the woodwork after she divorced Jackie's father-the dashing, disreputable "Black Jack" Bouvier-and married the rich Hugh D. Auchincloss, Janet not only played a pivotal part in Jackie's own wedding to JFK, but often served as a stand-in for Jackie during the White House years, and helped her cope with John and Caroline after the assassination. The only book to explore this fascinating mother-daughter relationship, Janet & Jackie is filled with stories that shed new light on the personal life of an American icon.

*THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER* *CURRENTLY BEING DEVELOPED FOR TELEVISION BY TOMORROW STUDIOS* A dazzling biography of three of the most glamorous women of the 20th Century: Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, her mother Janet Lee Auchincloss, and her sister, Princess Lee Radziwill. “Do you know what the secret to happily-ever-after is?” Janet Bouvier Auchincloss would ask her daughters Jackie and Lee during their tea time. “Money and Power,” she would say. It was a lesson neither would ever forget. They followed in their mother’s footsteps after her marriages to the philandering socialite “Black Jack” Bouvier and the fabulously rich Standard Oil heir Hugh D. Auchincloss. Jacqueline Bouvier would marry John F. Kennedy and the story of their marriage is legendary, as is the story of her second marriage to Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis. Less well known is the story of her love affair with a world renowned architect and a British peer. Her sister, Lee, had liaisons with one and possibly both of Jackie's husbands, in addition to her own three marriages—to an illegitimate royal, a Polish prince and a Hollywood director. If the Bouvier women personified beauty, style and fashion, it was their lust for money and status that drove them to seek out powerful men, no matter what the cost to themselves or to those they stepped on in their ruthless climb to the top. Based on hundreds of new interviews with friends and family of the Bouviers, among them their own half-brother, as well as letters and journals, J. Randy Taraborrelli's book paints an extraordinary psychological portrait of two famous sisters and their ferociously ambitious mother.

Tuebor was the most advanced civilization in our sector of the galaxy and they willingly shared their technology with most of the civilizations they encountered during their space explorations. This led to the formation of the Hocage Alliance. The Vate decided that the Tuebor led Alliance would be an easy acquisition and started a war. However, they underestimated the resistance of the other members of the Alliance and found themselves in a vicious stalemate. The Balekian Empire engaged the Vate during their conquest of all civilizations they encountered. The Vate realized that they could not defeat the Empire, therefore, asked the Alliance to join them in an effort to defeat a enemy who eventually would consume the Alliance. After thousands of years of war, a truce was finally signed which eventually led to the formation of THE COALITION. Tueborian influence within THE COALITION began to erode and they sought help from the remnants of the genetically related colony established on Earth 66 million years ago. This led to the 12.3 light-year separation of a teenage girl and her parents. Jackie and Bob Cavish were supposedly killed in a car crash. After the initial shock of her parents deaths, Denise Cavish questions police about several incidents surrounding the accident that doesnt make sense including the unauthorized cremation of the bodies. The disappearance of Denises best friend Kim Longley seems to be unrelated to the Cavishs apparent deaths. Acting on her own, Denise follows a lead that takes her to a remote fishing cabin in Montana where she almost kills the man responsible for reuniting the family. Once together the family helps the Tueborians and THE COALITION in dealing with the Genigans and Ammonoids in Book I; the Imini, Esortians, and Reptilians in Book II; and the United Reptilian Systems, the Plasma People and the Cosmic Creature in Book III. The Genigans and especially the Reptilians tend to settle any disputes with war. The Imini are always in constant flight for survival but will fight to eat. The Esortians chase the Imini throughout the galaxy and multi- dimensions while attacking anyone who helps their foe. The Ammonoids are reluctant to share and prefer to control situations through the non-confrontational use of their technology. The Plasma People and the Cosmic Creature arewell far out. Book III concludes with the Day Of Truth and the final chance for Earth to join THE COALITION. The story gives an awesome sense of appreciation for each species own very special but trivial place in this magnificent mysterious multidimensional ever-evolving universe. They learned to face issues far greater than their own personal needs. As a group they gradually learned that they must bind together for mutual protection and prosperity. THE COALITION provides adventure, mystery, humor and a touch of love all developed by the gradual blending of characters and species. It also provides some thoughts concerning the following questions: Did you ever wonder why the Chicxulub impact was so amazingly effective in wiping out all dinosaurs on Earth? Why Earth has humanoids of various colors? Which, if any, humanoids are indigenous to Earth? Why media exposure to science fiction has dramatically increased during the past 25 years?

The Kennedys endure as American icons because of the mix between power and vulnerability that so many of them embodied. Our fascination and connection to them comes most strongly through the wives, whose pain, heartbreak, and grief seemed immensely public and lonely and personal at the same time. The Tragic Lives of the Kennedy Wives examines five of the Kennedy matriarchs: Rose, Jackie, Ethel, Joan, and Vicki through the lens of their marriages, their religion, their families, their activism and most of all, their tragedies. An important and fascinating exploration into the side of Camelot that was never quite kept from the public eye.

History has seen only a few women so magical, so evanescent, that they captured the spirit and imagination of their times. Diana, Princess of Wales and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis were two of these rare creatures. They were the most famous women of the twentieth century--admired, respected, even adored at times; rebuked, mocked and reviled at others. Separated by nationality and a generation apart, they led two surprisingly similar lives. Both were the daughters of acrimonious divorce. Both wed men twelve years their senior, men who needed "trophy brides" to advance their careers. Both married into powerful and domineering families, who tried, unsuccessfully, to tame their willful independence. Both inherited power through marriage and both rebelled within their official roles, forever crushing the archetype. And both revolutionized dynasties. And yet in many ways they were completely different: Jackie lived her life with an English "stiff upper lip"--never complaining, never explaining in the face of immense public curiosity. Diana lived her life with an American "quivering lower lip"--with televised tell-alls, exposing her family drama to a world eager for every detail. These two lives have been well documented but never before compared. And never before examined in the context of their times. Jay Mulvaney, author of Kennedy Weddings and Jackie: The Clothes of Camelot, probes the lives of these two twentieth century icons and discovers: -The nature of their personalities forged from the cradle by their relationships with their fathers, Black Jack Bouvier and Johnny Spencer -Their early years, and their early relationships with men. -Their marriages, and the truth behind the lies, the betrayals and the arrangements. -Their greatest achievements: motherhood. -Their prickly relationships with their august mothers-in-law, Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy and Queen Elizabeth II -Their lives as single women, working mothers.Their roles as icons and archetypes. Graced with never before seen photographs from many private collections, and painstakingly researched, Diana and Jackie presents these two remarkable and unique women as they have never been seen before.
