The enormously successful businesswoman missed out on much of her children’s lives while she built her legendary home-furnishings empire.

Bobbing her hair and showing her knees, the lipsticked beauty dazzles, doing the Charleston in nightclubs and earning the nickname “Dollface.”  As the ultimate flapper, Vera captures the attention of two high rollers.,  On their arms, she gains entr√©e into a world filled with bootleg bourbon, wailing jazz, and money to burn.  The heady life she’s living is an illusion resting on a bedrock of crime and violence unlike anything the country has ever seen before as Chicago hurtles toward one of the most infamous days in its history, the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. 


  From the superbly gifted Sherry Thomas comes this beautifully written romance about a marriage of convenience that turns inconveniently passionate: Felix Rivendale, the Marquess of Wrenworth, is The Ideal Gentleman, a man all men want to be and all women want to possess. Even Felix himself almost believes this golden image. But underneath is a damaged soul soothed only by public adulation.  Louisa Cantwell needs to marry well to support her sisters. She does not, however, want Lord Wrenworth—though he seems inexplicably interested in her. She mistrusts his outward perfection. Still, when he is the only man to propose, she reluctantly accepts. Louisa does not understand her husband’s mysterious purposes, but she cannot deny the pleasure her body takes in his touch. Nor can she deny the pull this magnetic man exerts upon her. But does she dare to fall in love with a man so full of dark secrets, any one of which could devastate her, if she were to get any closer?
