Woot! It's the Twenties Again! by Nancy Fraser

I absolutely LOVE everything about the Roaring Twenties! The music, the clothes, the unabashed decadence, the new-found freedom of being whatever you wanted to be! It was a time of discovery for a lot of people. It was also a time of pushing the boundaries, whether it be defying Prohibition, or admitting to a once taboo sexuality. Everything was open to exploration.

Jazz ruled the fancy supperclubs and secret speakeasies! The clothes dared to expose body parts previously hidden away beneath yards and yards of material. It was magical!

Now we get to do it again and...this time...I'll be here to watch it all unfold. I couldn't be happier. I'm not sure our music could get much more daring and today's clothing sometimes leaves nothing to the imagination. But still, with a new year and a new decade, there's promise. Hope.

I don't do "resolutions" as such, but I do set out some goals for myself. I start with easily attainable completing galley edits on my March release. I build on that with short range goals of de-cluttering my condo and ridding myself of unused items. Then, there's the big one! For me, this year, it's my health. I have a few issues to get under control and I look forward to some steady progress.

In the meantime though, I'm content to not only finish my galleys but begin a new project. No matter what other committments or goals I set for myself, writing will always be up there on my must-do list.

To celebrate the "new" twenties, I thought I'd giveaway a couple of erotic novellas set in the 1920's. As befitting the era, both are decadent, romantic, and...just like the!

Decadence, freedom and illegal activities…

Everything a sheltered debutante in the mid-1920s could want. When Hyde Park socialite Susan Leland meets up with Evan Forrester for the second time, she makes no excuses for their first meeting—an auto accident in which she broke the young artist’s wrist. She finds the handsome Evan both infuriating and intriguing, yet not quite as intriguing as sultry torch singer Holly Winters, a performer at Susan’s favorite supper club.

A chance to make amends…

By posing nude for Evan to paint. When Susan balks, Evan, not wanting to deal with an innocent, sends her away but not before the arrival of his next model, Holly Winters. As Susan’s preparing to leave, the beautiful and talented singer convinces her to come back the next day—so they can pose together.

Will Susan find happiness in the arms of Evan Forrester—or another?

And ...

In the Roaring Twenties…

A former Hello Girl during WWI, widowed Ariel Pennybaker served her country proudly. She now carries on her late husband’s legacy…a home for the many returning, injured soldiers.

With her year of mourning nearly at an end, she’s had enough of her self-imposed celibacy. It’s time to get back in the game.

A chance meeting with a handsome WWI aviator has her imagining thoroughly naughty thoughts. When a second man walks into her life, her naughty thoughts turn downright decadent. What better way to fulfil her fantasies than by sharing both men’s beds.

As tempting as the idea is, Ariel has a huge secret, one she must protect at all costs. And, it’s possible one or both of her lovers is not what he seems.

  1. I like the clothes from the 20s. I'm hoping there'll be a re-do of some of them a century later!

  2. Here's to greatness in these Roaring 20s!!

  3. Cheers to the new '20s! I'm excited, too and for much the same reasons. Those two books sound fantastic& they're on my TBR List as of now!! Xo

  4. Nancy,both these books look like naughy and nice fun reads.

  5. I love the drape of the fabrics of many 1920s fashions. The ones I love most are not suitable for the grocery store, library, etc. so I have no idea where I would wear them. I just love looking at photos from that time period.

  6. Here's to the new roaring 20's! I love the history, clothes, and music as well, Nancy! You're books look great, gotta snag them for myself. Happiest of new years to you!

  7. I love the 20s! The music and the clothes. It such a great time period. Your covers are so pretty. I never knew they called switchboard operators Hello Girls. That's so cool!

  8. Ooh lala! They sound like fun books!
    I love the fringe! Our daughter did a 20's mystery supper and we all dressed the part. We had a lot of fun.
    Happy New Year!

  9. Nancy, your book sounds like so much fun. Love the 20s and gansta movies!! And you have a handsome WW I Aviator. Who can resist?

  10. Roaring Twenties? I always think of people doing the Charleston like in the scene from IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE where they're dancing, and the floor opens to reveal the swimming pool. Everyone dancing, laughing, and falling into the pool seems to express the carefree fun people had. Maybe we should recapture that spirit of fun.

  11. I'm still in awe that we are in a new decade of the 20s and I'm here to live through it myself... Which is a miracle bcz if my health! But thrilled bcz I get a new Grandbaby this year!

  12. The books sound great! I'm looking forward to getting settled in my new place and like you getting some health issues under control.

    1. Nancy, totally forgot to respond to this. Please check your email.

  13. Awesome book shares, lol yeah the 20s!
