Enjoy this chapter sampler from Ingenue, by Jillian Larkin. Published in 2011 by Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Children's Books. Power . . . love . . . scandal . . .
There’s never enough to go around.

In the city that never sleeps, Lorraine Dyer is wide awake. Ever since she exposed Clara Knowles for the tramp she was—and lost her closest confidante in the process—Lorraine has spent every second scheming to make her selfish, lovesick ex–best friend pay for what she did. No one crosses Lorraine. Not even Gloria.

True love conquers everything—or so Gloria Carmody crazily believed. She and Jerome Johnson can barely scrape together cash for their rent, let alone have a moment to whisper sweet nothings in the dark. And if they thought escaping Chicago meant they’d get away with murder . . . they were dead wrong.

Clara was sure that once handsome, charming Marcus Eastman discovered her shameful secret, he’d drop her like a bad habit. Instead, he swept her off her feet and whisked her away to New York. Being with Marcus is a breath of fresh air—and a chance for Clara to leave her wild flapper ways firmly in the past. Except the dazzling parties and bright lights won’t stop whispering her name. . . .

INGENUE is the second novel in the sexy, dangerous, and ridiculously romantic Flappers series set in the Roaring Twenties . . . where revenge is a dish best served cold.

PROLOGUE
Money.It was worth so much, but weighed so little.She placed the satchel on the table, opened it with a softclick, and flipped back the top. It was filled with dozensupon dozens of thin, green bills, rubber-banded in fat stacks.Hundreds.Then she picked up the list. Three names, all practicallykids: Sebastian Grey, Carlito Macharelli, and Jerome Johnson.She reached for her gun. It was an automatic she’d boughtin downtown Chicago specifically for this job. Once she wasdone, she’d lose it somewhere. It was a .38, a good gun to killwith.She unwrapped it and worked the slide, made sure all theparts were clean and functioning. It smelled of oil andcordite and had a reassuring weight in her hand. Effortlesslyshe snapped one bullet after another into the chamber.
