New Book Release: The Vaudeville Star

Please join me in congratulating Nicola Italia on the publication of her newest historical romance, The Vaudeville Star! I had the privilege of helping Nicola with a copyedit on this tale of love and obsession in the theater world at the turn of the twentieth century. Here's the book description:

On a Mississippi Plantation, Ruby Mae Sutton throws herself into the arms of the only man she has ever loved, Ford Rutledge. At fifteen years old, she has given her heart away and is not ashamed to brazenly declare her love to the twenty-five-year-old man, who is also the fiancĂ© of her sister. 

But Ford has no intention of taking advantage of the blond beauty, even though her reckless behavior causes his engagement to be broken. Ruby is sent off in disgrace to a boarding school in Connecticut, where she remains for the next three years. 

Once in Connecticut, Ruby discovers her singing voice and decides to leave after graduation for the bright lights of New York and the vaudeville stage. 

Ford also decides to make his home in New York and suddenly finds himself face-to-face with Ruby Sutton, the very grown and very beautiful rising star of the vaudeville stage. 

As Ruby’s star ascends, she makes a huge conquest with the King of Manhattan: William Parker. King Parker begins to take an interest in Ruby’s career, and more importantly Ruby herself, as Ford finally realizes he is in love with her. 

King finances a tour to Europe as his interest in Ruby takes a turn toward the more obsessive. Ruby finds herself torn between her true love for Ford and the obligation she owes King. She must tread carefully between the two men, and the brutal murder of someone they all know causes everyone to wonder who had the motive.

The Vaudeville Star is available now in ebook format on Amazon for $2.99! Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and get the scoop on all of Nicola's books on her website.
