Looking for a fun, vintage Fat Tuesday party? Wit’s End is putting the word out that author Jamie Brenner is having a book release party for her debut novel The Gin Lovers (St. Martin’s Press) on Tuesday at Madame X. Reviewers are hailing the book as Downton Abbey meets 50 Shades set in 1920s Manhattan.
Tuesday, Feb. 12, 6-9 p.m.
Address: 94 W Houston St, New York, NY 10012
The party will be a speakeasy type affair with period music, drink specials, and prizes for best vintage attire.
From the publisher about The Gin Lovers:
It’s 1925, and the Victorian era with its confining morals is all but dead. Unfortunately, for New York socialite Charlotte Delacorte, the scandalous flapper revolution is little more than a headline in the tabloids. Living with her rigid and controlling husband William, her Fifth Avenue townhouse is a gilded cage. But when William’s rebellious younger sister, the beautiful and brash Mae, comes to live with them after the death of their mother, Charlotte finds entrée to a world beyond her wildest dreams – and a handsome and mysterious stranger whom she imagines is as confident in the bedroom as he is behind the bar of his forbidden speakeasy.
Jamie Brenner, under the pen name Logan Belle, wrote the erotic trilogy Blue Angel (Kensington), followed by the erotic romance Bettie Page Presents: The Librarian (Simon & Schuster/PocketStar).
