Don’t Miss Holly Bush’s Newest Historical Fiction Romance!

For This Moment, Coming 3/13/18

 

For This Moment is a well-written historical fiction romance, about love, taking chances and overcoming the fear of rejection. It takes place in Virginia, during the 1870s.

Olivia Gentry was an educated woman from a wealthy family, but she was not the usual Southern Bell. Olivia was independent, opinionated, worked with horses and loved politics. Her weakness, however, was her brother’s best friend, Jim. The man she has loved for ages. It broke Olivia’s heart to hear that he didn’t feel the same about her. Jim made it abundantly clear to Olivia that he would never marry her.

Olivia was determined to move on with her life. And, if that meant traveling to a faraway city to distance herself from the man she loved, then that was what she was going to do. There was something, though, about Jim that Olivia didn’t know. Disasters, however, have a way of changing lives, healing hearts and exposing a person’s true feelings.

For This Moment is an enjoyable romance, well-written and captivating. Thank you, Holly Bush, for my advanced review copy

*The Maid’s Quarters* by Holly Bush- 5-Stars

the maid's quarters

It was 1893, on a cold winter day in Boston, when Alice returned home from Texas to find her mother and sick brother living in a church. Alice had been paying her mom’s rent for years, so she was furious to find that her mother and brother had been evicted.

Alice suspected that her no-good drunkard father had played a significant role in making her mother and brother homeless. She surmised, that he probably pestered her mom until she gave in and gave him money, leaving her unable to make the rent that month. Alice’s mother had kicked her father out years ago because of his drunken and immoral behavior, but Alice suspected that she was allowing him to come around now and then. She was right too. Her father had always been a bad influence, and it was because of him that Alice’s reputation had been ruined. She accepted the fact years ago that she would never marry and that taking service jobs, such as being a maid, would be her lot in life. But that was all about to change.

The Maid’s Quarters is a sweet story about forgiveness, acceptance, and love. Alice would find the love of her life and get her happy-ever-after, but not until she faced and confessed her most shameful secret.

I enjoyed this well-written novella, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading sweet historical romances.
