Read A Sample

🌴Hepburn's Necklace - When costume designer Ariana Ricci leaves her groom at the altar, she seeks solace with her great-aunt, a Texas-born Hollywood legend who worked on the film Roman Holiday as an extra. There, Ariana discovers Audrey Hepburn gave Ruby Raines an intriguing necklace during filming, and a cache of 1950s letters, postmarked Italy, raises more questions about Ruby’s hidden past.

Aching for a fresh start and the chance to resolve an unfinished story, the two embark on a journey to the sun-dappled shores of Lake Como, Italy that will illuminate secrets of a bygone era and offer second chances to each of them—if they are bold enough to seize them.

🌴The Chocolatier - San Francisco, 1953: Heartbroken over the mysterious death of her husband, Celina Savoia, a second-generation chocolatière, resolves to take their young son to Italy’s shimmering Amalfi coast to meet his father’s family. Just as she embarks on a magical, romantic life of making chocolate by the sea surrounded by a loving family, she begins to suspect that her husband had a dark secret–forged in the final days of WWII–that could destroy the relationships she’s come to cherish.

While a second chance at love is tempting, the mystery of her husband’s true identity thwarts her efforts. Challenged to pursue the truth or lose the life and those she’s come to love, Celina and her late husband’s brother, Lauro, must trace the past to a remote, Peruvian cocoa region to face the deceit that threatens to shatter their lives.

🌴The Winemakers - Napa Valley, 1956: Winemaker Caterina Rosetta and her mother Ava harbor family secrets and face threats that could ruin their family winery, Mille Étoiles Vineyards. Concealing her husband’s past in Tuscany, Ava Rosetta struggles to manage the vineyard, while her high-spirited, passionate daughter Caterina—a wine-blending savant—has inherited Ava’s talent for crafting wine and guarding damaging secrets.

Caterina hides a truth that could ruin her in the eyes of her mother and traditional society: An illegitimate child. The father, Santo—Caterina’s childhood best friend—abandoned her without explanation, leaving her with nowhere to turn. Devastated, Caterina journeys to their ancestral vineyard in Montalcino, Italy to claim an inheritance from her grandmother and seize the chance to start a new life. There, for the first time, she meets her unknown, extended family and discovers shocking secrets that could destroy the man she loves—who still loves her. Caterina realizes her happiness and the entire future of Mille Étoiles Vineyards depend on her ability to unravel the mysteries of the past—if she has the strength to face them.

🌴The Perfumer: Scent of Triumph - Europe, 1939: At the dawn of World War II, French perfumer Danielle Bretancourt and her German husband strive to ensure their family’s safety, yet neither can foresee the ultimate cost. From London to Paris, Danielle struggles to find her missing child and aid the French Resistance, even as she grieves her losses.

As the war intensifies, Danielle is forced to seek refuge in America to save the lives of her remaining family. She draws on her skills as a talented perfumer to lift her family out of crushing poverty. Yet even as she forges a new life among the Hollywood elite, she cannot forget her child nor the man who risked everything for her. Even an ocean away, she discovers that safety remains an illusion.

🌴Life is a Cabernet - Years ago, after Juliana Cardona’s fiancé was killed in an army ambush, she didn’t know if she could ever find the strength to risk love again. Now Juliana, who has a passion for winemaking, is determined to build her own business as a wine publicist and create an independent life.

But when Juliana holds a press event in San Francisco, she meets a mysterious winemaker, Henri Laurent, who is everything she never thought she’d find again. However, Juliana is shocked to discover that Henri is hiding a long-buried secret that threatens to devastate their budding relationship.

Book Reviews

A novel that gives fans of romantic sagas a compelling voice to follow.” – Booklist


“A well-spun and sweeping debut novel about a fearless, headstrong woman. Spanning multiple continents and set against the backdrop of World War II, Jan Moran deftly weaves plotlines and tackles tough issues, all to a satisfying conclusion. Add in glimpses of the high-end fragrance trade, and SCENT OF TRIUMPH offers a thoroughly engaging tale, rich in all five senses.” — Michelle Gable, Author of A Paris Apartment


“Jan Moran delivers a sweeping tale that transports readers from the lavender scented fields of Provence to the pulsing boulevards of Paris, from the flashy parties of Hollywood to the war-ravaged rubble of Nazi-occupied Poland. SCENT OF TRIUMPH is as full and rich as the intoxicating perfumes blended at the hands of its memorable and worthy heroine, Danielle. Heartbreaking, evocative, and inspiring, this book is a powerful journey.”
– Allison Pataki, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Accidental Empress


“Utterly inescapable. Jan Moran’s masterful romance comes with a bonus: she interweaves this romantic tale with a behind-the-scenes look at perfumery.”
― Allegra Jordan, author of The End of Innocence


“Jan Moran has written a sweeping saga of one woman’s journey through World War II and her unwillingness to give up even when faced with the toughest challenges. Danielle is a character readers will cherish and Jan’s descriptions of the perfume industry and Europe under siege are mesmerizing. A heartbreaking, evocative read that will transport readers to another place and time and not let go. I could not turn the pages fast enough!”
— Anita Hughes, Author of Lake Como


“A haunting, multilayered historical romance, (Jan Moran’s) Scent of Triumph takes us on an epic journey with the most resilient of heroines as our guide. It is a book to savor, like the most beautiful of perfumes. Inhale. Exhale. I was riveted from start to finish…and I’m only just now finding my breath.”

— Samantha Vérant, author of Seven Letters from Paris; A Memoir

“Hard to put down … captivating. The tragedies of war, conflicts in family, love, and passion for perfumery paint a realistic, historical portrait of some of the fragrance industry’s most famous women who created today’s top cosmetic firms. A “must read” for anyone in the cosmetic industry or even starting a business.”

— Marvel Fields, Chairman, American Society of Perfumers

“From war-torn Europe to the sunny climes of Southern California, SCENT OF TRIUMPH is a captivating tale of love, loss, determination and reinvention. A page-turner.”

— Karen Marin, Givenchy Paris

“Action, suspense and romance as it follows its intrepid heroine through the turbulent years of World War II, from the depths of tragedy to the heights of success.

“When you lose everything, one must embrace. SCENT OF TRIUMPH follows the struggles of Danielle Bretancourt von Hoffman, who following the Second World War [attempts] to find her place in society, and finds her talent of identifying any scent on her own; she uses those talents to build her way up through the fashion world and Hollywood. Drawing heavily on the author’s own experience, SCENT OF TRIUMPH has a dedicated look into the history of the world of fashion, recommended.”
– Midwest Book Review


“A stylish, compelling story of a family torn apart by war and a woman’s courageous efforts to bring them back together, SCENT OF TRIUMPH has everything: romance, heartache, spying, intrigue, and vivid settings. Danielle is just the kind of feisty female protagonist that I love, but what really sets SCENT OF TRIUMPH apart is the backdrop of perfumery that suffuses the story with the delicious aromas of rose, jasmine, lavender, bergamot, cinnamon bark, cloves and bitter orange. You can almost smell them as you read – a remarkable feat!”
— Liz Trenow, Author of The Poppy Factory


“A gripping World War II story of poignant love and devastating, heart-wrenching loss. The perfumes are so beautifully described, you can smell them wafting up from the pages.”

”Warm and well written, with characters who attract the reader’s sympathy and affection. A lovely story well-told, which will appeal to romantics, fashion and perfume devotees, and fans of historical fiction.”
— Amy Edelman, founder of IndieReader.com
