In the Roaring Twenties…
A 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 fills her imagination with thoroughly naughty thoughts. When a second man walks into her life, her naughty thoughts turn downright decadent. What better way to fulfill 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.
1920s sex, romance, and mystery
This is a lively affair, with plenty of sensuality and mystery packed in to a short novella. I enjoyed the heroine, the Mrs. Pennybaker of the title, also known as Ariel, or Sophia, her code name during the war. There are two seductive male leads, and I found myself rooting for both of them, though in the end, I was a litle disappointed that she ended up with just one, and not the one I was hoping for, at that. But the author wrapped things up satisfactorily and I enjoyed all the 20s slang and fashion. A great historical read!
