Book Blurb for Band of Gold

In the era of disco and bell bottoms, one neighborhood is keeping free love alive, one key at a time.

From the outside, perpetual good girl Edith would appear to be the last person in the world who'd attend a key party, let alone throw one. But after countless years trapped in a loveless marriage, Edith is willing to try anything for a chance at passion, even if it's only for one night.

Years ago, Grady walked away from love because he wanted to do the right thing. The key party afforded him an opportunity to correct that mistake. This time he was going to choose the woman he loved, no matter what society thought. He had a plan, he had a secret, and he had an offer he hoped Edith would want to take him up on.

Now, all he had to do was get her to pick his key.
