The Love and Pursuit series chronicles the adventures of a delicious cast of eccentric characters during the height of London’s Jazz Age in three stand-alone novellas. Love and Pursuit is now available in print, e-box set, or individual e-books!
Love and the Pursuit of Law
Ivy Smythe is one of the first women to be admitted as a barrister in England. The Honorable Bryan Henderson is the young aristocrat she defends on charges of murdering a prostitute in Love and the Pursuit of Law. Together they experience the excitement of London’s Jazz Age and a growing attraction neither can deny.
Love and the Pursuit of Justice
Diana Vanderwell is an American heiress accused of being an accessory to the murder of her friend’s wife. Graham Wetherington is the young barrister charged with defending her in Love and the Pursuit of Justice. Can a British barrister and an American heiress survive a criminal investigation and forge a life together?
Love and the Pursuit of Redemption
Margarite Hagen Fusani is the wife of an Egyptian playboy and a former courtesan. James Arthur, the Second Duke of Donovan, has been in love with her since his military posting in Paris during the Great War. When Margarite is charged with murdering her abusive husband, the Duke uses his influence to exonerate her in Love and the Pursuit of Redemption. Can a former French courtesan and a British duke overcome class prejudice and prevail against the criminal justice system to find happiness?
C.K. Charlotte’s romantic suspense novellas, Love and Pursuit: Three Jazz Age Tales of Crime and Passion, give the reader a glimpse into the gilded age where bright young people caroused at all hours, and privilege seemed to guarantee everything . . . . Charlotte’s work really shines, however, as a historical legal thriller. I’m a big fan of police procedurals and legal thrillers, and while the human interest elements of these tales are enjoyable, the underlying mysteries in the setting of the Jazz Age are well-crafted and fun to puzzle over. Charlotte’s own considerable legal background gives these novellas an authenticity that’s hard to beat. Love and Pursuit: Three Jazz Age Tales of Crime and Passion is most highly recommended.
