Of Trust & Heart
It’s 1923 and the Great War has already changed Lady Harriet Cunningham’s life in every way. Now she’s left her native Scotland to come to New York to find a husband. A husband she doesn’t wish for. But for Harriet, a secret and cleverly hidden speakeasy promises all kinds of pleasures that are illegal during Prohibition—especially for those whose love is as forbidden as the contraband champagne…
Harriet knows her duty. As the daughter of the Earl of Creoch, she’s expected to marry and marry well. To uphold her family’s esteemed reputation. And yet she’s here at this bar, wanting something forbidden. Someone. Because Harriet is entranced by the dark eyes and silky voice of singer Miss Rosalie Smith…and an attraction that is nothing less than a crime.
But Harriet can’t live in the world of secret speakeasies and furtive, desperate longing for a woman she can never have. Marriage and respectability beckons. And soon Rosalie will have to choose between the life she’s expected to live…and the breathtaking woman she can’t live without.
