Hot Springs Arkansas

The 1920s

On the eve of her eighteenth birthday, Bethany is eager to celebrate at the Arlington Hotel. More than anything she wants to cut her long hair into a bob, raise her hemline, and learn to do the Charleston.

Unfortunately, every aspect of her life is strictly controlled by her aunt and uncle who want to keep her–and her inheritance–stiflingly close. If they have their way, she will return from her holiday engaged to her uncle’s new business partner.

Little do any of them know Al Capone has rented the fourth floor of the Arlington, and one of his men has taken a liking to Bethany. All that stands between the innocent young woman and the hardened gangster is Detective Paul Tollick.

Instantly drawn to Bethany’s enchanting beauty, Paul will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. Between deadly criminals and oppressive family ties, can he help her claim the freedom to follow her heart?

Author Debra Parmley believes “Every day we are alive is a beautiful day,” and she likes to give her readers and her story people a story that ends happily.

An Air Force veteran’s wife, Debra is most known for writing military romantic suspense. She also writes contemporary romance, holiday romance, fairytale romance, 1920s romance, and gritty western historical romance.

Her first romance, A Desperate Journey, a gritty western historical, was published in 2008 in eBook and 2009 in print after being selected as one of ten novels to compete in the American Title II contest put on by Dorchester Publishing and Romantic Times Book Lovers magazine. One year later, her agent sold the book to a small traditional press that offered a small advance, and she went on to write for five small presses.

Debra is an adventurous writer who lives in a motorhome full-time with her husband as they travel the U.S. She has sold travel, walked the plank of a pirate ship off the coast of Grand Cayman, swum with dolphins in Moorea in French Polynesia, escorted a bus full of people through Scotland, and set foot in 13 countries.

She married her high school sweetheart, whom she asked out after a five-dollar bet. After living in five states with her husband and two sons, and living for 23 years just outside Memphis, TN, she and her husband sold everything in Memphis and moved into a 43-foot motorhome, a 2010 Tiffin Allegro diesel bus, where they live full-time. Debra writes and travels the U.S. You can see many of her travels on her Beautiful Day Traveler blog.

Her romances are published as Debra Parmley and her other work, fairytales for all ages, fantasy, and children’s books, she writes as Debra Bishop.
