Jazz. Booze. Boys. It’s a dangerous combination. 

Every girl wants what she can’t have. Seventeen-year-old Gloria Carmody wants the flapper lifestyle—and the bobbed hair, cigarettes, and music-filled nights that go with it. Now that she’s engaged to Sebastian Grey, scion of one of Chicago’s most powerful families, Gloria’s party days are over before they’ve even begun … or are they? 

Clara Knowles, Gloria’s goody-two-shoes cousin, has arrived to make sure the high-society wedding comes off without a hitch—but Clara isn’t as lily-white as she appears. Seems she has some dirty little secrets of her own that she’ll do anything to keep hidden.  

Lorraine Dyer, Gloria’s social-climbing best friend, is tired of living in Gloria’s shadow. When Lorraine’s envy spills over into desperate spite, no one is safe. And someone’s going to be very sorry.  

From author Jillian Larkin, Vixen is the first novel in the sexy, dangerous, and ridiculously romantic series set in the roaring ’20s.

    " You'd think that a book about the party girls of the 1920's would be fun and exciting, right? I barely got through the first three chapters before I was bored out of my mind. Overall it wasn't bad, but it wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be. "

    " I just love historical fiction! I picked this one since it reminded me of the Luxe series and it didn't disappoint. The title is a bit much, but it suits the whole flapper time period. On Amazon there is a really cool promotional book video. Looking forward to the next book in the series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lydia | 5/5/2011

    " This was a fast read and somewhat fun with some insights to the era, but it is written for a younger audience with characters still in HS but involved in very adult situations. Not something I'd encourage someone under legal age to read - I'm an old fogie :] "
