She would have Paris at her feet.
He would have her at his.
Paris, 1889: The Belle Epoque, where imaginations are stirred by Eiffel’s Tower, the avant-garde are reshaping the art world, and electric lights are reclaiming the night. And in Montmartre, new investors have promised the most glittering stage Paris has ever seen. Only steps away, Monica Fauconnier, a twenty-four-year-old laundress, is determined to change her drab life. For she isn’t simply a laundress.
When she meets Jonathan Derassen, an alluring owner of the Moulin Rouge, he can make her a star. But, in a world where stars are courtesans, he’d rather make her his. As he seduces her with his gilded world and the dark warrens of his mind, they must manage the machinations of bohemian- and Tout-Paris. And Monica finds herself torn between her dreams and her heart.

About the Author
Catherine C. Heywood is a former political speech writer and communications consultant. At one time she pursed being a stand-up comedienne and a criminal defense attorney before settling on creative writing. Which, let’s face it, was all she wanted to do as a girl.
Born in Red Wing, MN, she’s lived in Boston, MA and Edinburgh, Scotland. She has degrees in American Politics, Writing, and Political Communications from the University of St. Thomas and Boston College. She’s kind of a nerd for great political speeches.
Raised in a strict, Catholic family, when asked why she didn’t want to be a nun, the answer she gave still makes her mom blush. The worst job she ever had? Scraping year-old tobacco spit off a shoe factory wall. The best? Doing this.
She lives in Western WI with her husband and boys.
