The Gin Lovers

Jamie Brenner

St. Martin's Griffin

Set against the turbulent and glamorous backdrop of Prohibition and the rise of the jazz age, Jamie Brenner's The Gin Lovers was first published as a six-part e-serial. Now this sensual and romantic story of how one high society woman’s passion and courage lead her to love is available for the first time ever as a complete book.

It’s 1925, and the Victorian era with its confining morals is all but dead. Unfortunately, for New York socialite Charlotte Delacorte, the scandalous flapper revolution is little more than a headline in the tabloids. Living with her rigid and controlling husband William, her Fifth Avenue townhouse is a gilded cage. But when William’s rebellious younger sister, the beautiful and brash Mae, comes to live with them after the death of their mother, Charlotte finds entrée to a world beyond her wildest dreams – and a handsome and mysterious stranger whom she imagines is as confident in the bedroom as he is behind the bar of his forbidden speakeasy.
