When Natasha was rescued by a wealthy Russian, she became his mistress. Then she met Theo, and felt a connection to him. Theo was obsessed with Natasha and couldn't get her out of his mind. I liked this book, but it seemed to drag on.

Began reading Steel's novels in the 70s. Gave up and went to other authors. Recently decided to read The Mistress and it is similar to many of her other novels:

Main female character is blonde

Main female character lives in either San Francisco, Paris or New York

Main female character is very wealthy; inherits a fortune; is with a wealthy man or eventually ends up with a wealthy man; or a man who will be wealthy.

Her novels are light reading and thankfully not violent.

I love Danielle Steele’s books and have never been disappointed after reading. This is a story about love, fate, denial, luxury, obsession, and memories. Natasha is the mistress of Vladimir Stanislas, a Russian billionaire, who feels money can buy anything. Theo is the son of Lorenzo Luca, a famous painter. Maylis, Theo’s mother, refuses to sell any of Lorenzo’s paintings. After a huge offer, a painting is sold. Theo is obsesses with memories of Natasha and with this obsession, paints her from memory. You will be sailed on Vladimir’s ship over the world. Secrets will be unveiled about stolen paintings. Just when you believe that there is nothing else that could happen, it does. Fast read that will have you feeling good at the end.

Danielle Steel's books are generally Women Centric and "The Mistress" is no exception. Though there are important male characters there is no doubt that this novel is about Natasha - Vladimir's mistress. The characters are somewhat 'larger than life' and yet predictable. A quick, easy read; not literature by any means.
