Waiting On Wednesday: VIXEN by Jillian Larkin/Lila Fine

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 debut author Jillian Larkin, VIXEN is the first novel in the sexy, dangerous, and ridiculously romantic new series set in the Roaring Twenties . . . when anything goes.
Ooh, I am SO excited about this book! Being a fan of the 1920s, I can't wait to get a copy as I just love the cover and the description! It comes out on 14th December 2010 and I just know this will be the beginning of another fab series!

It sounds a quite a bit like Bright Young Things, the new series by Anna Godbersen, which I am also ridiculously excited about! The first reviews are surfacing and people are saying it's even better than the Luxe series - how's that possible?! I can't wait to find out!

Looks like winter 2010 is all about the flappers, woohoo! :)

I so can't wait for this one! It sounds so good, and very like Bright Young Things which I also can't wait for.

Do you know why the authors name changed on the book cover? Started off as Lila Fine but is now Jillian Larkin (?)

Nope, sorry, no idea! I was actually hoping someone would enlighten me about that, hehe! :)

Haven't even heard of this, but it looks AWESOME.

@Bookalicious - it's a mystery! Maybe something to do with a pen name? In any case, the book sounds great! :)

Love the cover! I have Bright Young Things pre-ordered. I'm definitely going to find myself a copy of Vixen when it's published.
