Guest Kryssie Fortune: Hollywood’s Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves #MFRWAuthor

 

Some of Hollywood’s silent stars achieved an immortality that modern actors can only dream of.

Hollywood invited the wonderful Pola Negi to Hollywood. She left her native Poland and became one of the richest movie stars in the USA. She’s shown below with an almost unrecognisable Chaplin. Her most famous film was The Gypsy.

Everyone knows Charlie Chaplin and his little tramp.

Valantino’s eyes still smolder with passion. The archetypal Latin lover, he stole ladies’ hearts. Okay, that’s a stretch to make him a thief, but in his most famous film, The Sheik, he steals Lady Diana and carries her off to his camp.

Then there’s Amy Montgomery. Never heard of her? Not surprising since I made her up. She’s pivotal to my Heroes of Westhorpe Ridge trilogy, since her star shone brighter than any other movie star.

Amy was as famous for her lovers as her acting roles. Her sex appeal and avarice, plus her eye for a good deal, made her millions. Sadly, her daughter wanted to move in polite circles. Her mother’s lifestyle made that impossible.

Although the Amy’s daughter married, she raised her own daughter so prim and proper she made sucking lemons sound like a treat. Edith Montgomery holds the purse strings for her family, but had no time for girls. She left the bulk of her estate, property and over £15 million in stocks and shares to her great nephew, Army doctor, Adam Montgomery – as long as he marries within a year of her death.

When Adam is wounded he retunes to Westhorpe to find a wife. Then his first love moves back into town with her ten-year-old son and  turns his world on its head.

After Adam Montgomery walked away and left her pregnant, dare Mandy trust him with her heart again?

Blurb

Twelve years ago, Mandy Devlin moved away from her friends and family–under threat. If she returned in the next ten years or told anyone who fathered her baby, her boyfriend’s great-aunt would bankrupt her family. She’s a single mom who dreams of her lost love and a good spanking. When she’s finally free to return to Westhorpe Ridge, the last person she expects to see is Adam—the man she loved and lost so long ago.

Dr. Adam Montgomery doesn’t know he has a son. Thanks to his great-aunt’s will, he has nine months to find a bride, or he loses Montgomery Hall and the fifteen million dollars she left him. Although he seduces Mandy on his first night home, he still believes she betrayed him twelve years ago. No way would he marry a woman like her.

As Valentine’s Day looms, someone tries to kill Mandy. Is Adam trying to get rid of her? Or can Mandy trust him to protect them?

  1. Welcome to our pages, Kryssie, and congratulations on the new release. Sounds yummie! The last time Mr. Kraft and I went to Los Angeles to visit our son, we stayed in a vintage hotel/rooming house across the street from Universal Studios in the “Charlie Chaplain” room. Local lore had it that he lived in that room at least part of the time he was filming, and the hotel lobby was filled with memorabilia. In addition its slanted floor had also been used to film some scenes!

  2. Thank you for letting me drop by.This is one post I loved writing this post. The hotel you stayed in sounds amazing. The early film stars have always fascinated me, since they were in at the birth of an industry. I’d have loved the hotel lobby, but my husband might never have got me out of there.

    Also, I have an Amazon link now. If any one wants to check out me book, it’s http://amzn.to/2kJbtmK
