Aloha to Sharon Page and AN AMERICAN DUCHESS

Set on a crumbling English manor estate during the height of the Roaring Twenties, an American duchess must decide how much she's willing to risk for the life she truly desires…

It's 1922, and New York heiress Zoe Gifford longs for the freedoms promised by the Jazz Age. Headstrong and brazen, but bound by her father's will to marry before she can access his fortune, Zoe arranges for a brief marriage to Sebastian Hazelton, whose aristocratic British family sorely needs a benefactor.

Once in England, her foolproof plan to wed, inherit and divorce proves more complicated than Zoe had anticipated. Nigel Hazelton, Duke of Langford and Sebastian's older brother, is as austere and imposing as the family's ancestral estate. Still reeling from the Great War, Nigel is now staging a one-man battle against a rapidly changing world—and the outspoken Zoe represents everything he's fighting against.

When circumstances compel Zoe to marry Nigel rather than Sebastian, their heated quarrelling begets passion of another sort. But with Nigel unwilling to change with the times, will Zoe be forced to choose between her husband and her dreams?

  1. I think that the fashion from the jazz age, really rocked.

  2. I'm afraid it's not something I've ever gotten into.

  3. I love the flapper dresses and the bobs.

  4. I love jazz. The music is great , dancing is delightful to see.

  5. I've actually been watching a TV show called MISS FISHER MURDER MYSTERIES. It is set during the 20's. Loving the music & fashion.

  6. The term Jazz Age makes me think of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

  7. I did like the flapper style clothing the women wore during the early jazz age and I loved the music. Jazz is my fave music genre still today! It has changed quite a bit so that there are several sub-genres under jazz now (blues, improv, big band, modern, dixieland), whereas back in the 20's it was mainly Charleston type music. Thanks for the interesting question.

  8. I've always loved the magic & energy of the Jazz Age!!!
    thank you for the giveaway!!
