THE LAST ROMANTICS, Park Avenue Series, Book #5, by “brilliant” million-copy NYTimes bestseller Ruth Harris. An epic love story set in Paris and New York during the glamorous, Jazz Age of the 1920's.
Kim Hendricks is a legendary American war reporter and famous novelist, a man’s man and a woman’s man. He is dashing, handsome and celebrated but dangerously flawed. Nicole Redon is a gifted fashion designer who has the world at her feet. She is loved by rich and titled men, admired by other women. She is beautiful, charming, lonely, haunted.
They are the last romantics, the first contemporaries. Destiny brings them together but will fate—and the tides of history—keep them apart?
