Aiden Palmer, a disenchanted WWI veteran, has gone from golden boy to troublemaker since his return from Europe. Hopping from job to job, looking for meaning and adventure, he finds himself running with a rowdy new crowd that puts pressure on him to join their illegal bootlegging runs. On the night the 18th Amendment goes into affect, he reconnects with a love from his past, Grace Currie, at a Prohibition Ball.
Grace McAfee Currie is a teenaged war widow. On the night the Volstead Act becomes law, she searches for Aiden Palmer, the man she’d wanted to marry three years ago. Convincing him that she still loves him is no easy task. Will they be able to outmaneuver her power-hungry brother and outrun the competition and start a new life together?
I really enjoyed this short romance that takes place during the Prohibition era. Great characters and story. It is fast-paced and full of action, emotion, and romance.
