An American Duchess Release Day!

An American Duchess

An American Duchess is out in the world today.

I was thrilled to be able to write this book as it blends my favorite things—the 1920s, a stately English estate, a wounded hero with secrets, a strong American heroine who shakes up a staid (but gorgeous) duke. Plus I’m a huge fan of Downton Abbey and loved writing in that era.

Here’s a small teaser excerpt from An American Duchess:

Her plucked brow arched. “You’re afraid to admit there is anything wrong with you. Good heavens, how could there not be? My brother died in France. He wrote letters home. He tried to be strong and stoic for a long time, then he began to fall apart. He wrote about how he couldn’t stand the shooting and the shelling, the mud, the wet trenches, the sickness any longer—”

“There is absolutely nothing wrong with me, Miss Gifford. The only things I brought back with me from the War are the scars on my face and on my soul. My mind is completely intact.”

She shook her head. He despised sympathy, but her soft, sad expression ladled it over him by the bucketful. “You can’t deny what you feel. You may actually have to face your emotions—”

“I do not have emotions. Now, return inside. Dance in whatever shocking way you want with Sebastian. But send Julia out to me. I am taking her home.”

Here’s what people are saying about An American Duchess:

“Fans of Downton Abbey should reach for An American Duchess…Page’s captivating prose evokes the Roaring Twenties with skillful and vivid detail and creates a searing romance with a timeless message: it is not just the love we find, but living it on our own terms, that matters.”
—Pam Jenoff, International bestselling author

“Sharon Page shines with this riveting tale of true love. Real emotion, captivating characters, and a rip-roaring plot kept me turning pages far into the night.”
—Sabrina Jeffries, New York Times bestselling author

“An American Duchess is a sweeping story that realistically depicts the trials and tribulations of a family picking up the pieces after World War I. Merging the flavor of Downton Abbey with her own special touches, Page crafts a vibrant novel and a dramatic love story with strong, well motivated characters and completely captures the angst and glamour of the era.”
—RT BOOKreview, 4 ½ stars

“This is a novel that is beautiful, touching, informative and fun. I know I shall remember this plot for some time to come.” —Bookworm2Bookworm
