A fearless and spirited pilot conquers Hollywood. Now can
she survive movie stardom?
In 1945 Velva Jean Hart is a bona fide war heroine. After a
newsreel film of her triumphant return to America, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer promises
to make her a star. They give her a new life story and a brand-new name. As
“Kit Rogers,” she navigates the movie sets, recording sessions, parties, staged
romances, and occasional backstabbing that accompany her newfound fame. She
also navigates real-life romance, finding herself caught between a charismatic
young writer and a sexy and enigmatic musician from her past. But when one of
her best friends dies mysteriously and the most powerful studio in the world
launches a cover-up, Velva Jean goes in search of the truth—risking her own
life, as well as her heart, in the process.
Set during Hollywood’s golden age and peopled with a cast of
unforgettable characters, American Blonde will mesmerize readers of The
Chaperone as well as fans of the Velva Jean series. Download and start listening now!
