A Manhattan Heiress in Paris by Amanda McCabe #GuestPost #Giveaway @AmandaMcCabe01 @rararesources #HistoricalRomance

It’s my pleasure to share a guest post from Amanda McCabe for the Mini Blog Blitz, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.

A Manhattan Heiress in Paris

I’m so excited to share Jack and Eliza’s story with you, and I hope you enjoy their romance as much as I loved writing it.  A Manhattan Heiress In Paris includes so many of my loves in life—Paris, music, and especially passionate soulmates that overcome all else to be together.  Watching Jack and Eliza find each other made me cry a bit—maybe even more than once!  (Thankfully only my dogs witnessed the ugly-cry, LOL).

It was also fun to incorporate a bit of real history in the story.  The great love the French had for jazz music, the new art of the Salon des Independants, Hemingway and his drinking and inconvenient boxing at parties, the glamorous Murphys and their party on the barge.  Paris in the 1920s always seems like a magical time of artistic experiments, a remaking of the world after  the horrors of the war and the flu epidemic.  But of course it was also a very complicated time, particularly for matters such as race relations, and I didn’t have the space to delve nearly as deeply into these very important issues as I would have liked.  Eliza and Jack will face many large challenges in their lives together, but love is very powerful, too, and they have that together in abundance.

    Here are just a few of the (many!) sources I used in my research, if you’d like to dive deeper into the times:

Judith Mackrell, Flappers: Six Women of a Dangerous Generation (2013)

Jeremy Mercer, Time Was Soft There: A Paris Season at Shakespeare and Company (2005)

The Mythology, Politics, and Business of Jazz (2010)

Paul Kofsky, Black Music, White Business: Illuminating the History and Political Economy of Jazz (1998)

Roger Pryor Dodge, Hot Jazz (1995)

Gene Lees, Cats of Any Color: Jazz Black and White (1994)

Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast (1936/2004)

David Downie, A Passion for Paris (2015)

Mary McAuliffe, When Paris Sizzled (2016)

Amanda Vaill, Everyone Was So Young: Gerald and Sara Murphy (2013)

Mary V Dearborn, Ernest Hemingway (2017)

Paul Brody, Hemingway in Paris (2014)

Nancy Milford, Zelda: A Biography

Thanks so much for this, Amanda

Leaving Manhattan…
For a secret Parisian affair…

New York darling Elizabeth Van Hoeven has everything…except freedom. But now Eliza’s traveling to study piano at the Paris Conservatoire and falling for jazz prodigy Jack Coleman in the process! A love like theirs is forbidden back home, and as they make beautiful music together under the Parisian lights, Eliza and Jack face a difficult choice: the life they’ve always known, or the possibility of a life they never could have imagined…

A Manhattan Amanda McCabe Author1Amanda wrote her first romance at the age of sixteen–a vast historical epic starring all her friends as the characters, written secretly during algebra class (and her parents wondered why math was not her strongest subject…)  She’s never since used algebra, but her books have been nominated for many awards, including the RITA Award, the Romantic Times BOOKReviews Reviewers’ Choice Award, the Booksellers Best, the National Readers Choice Award, and the Holt Medallion.  She lives in Santa Fe with a Poodle, a cat, a wonderful husband, and a very and far too many books and royal memorabilia collections. When not writing or reading, she loves taking dance classes, collecting cheesy travel souvenirs, and watching the Food Network–even though she doesn’t cook.
