Book Review

For Her Honor

The Gentrys of Paradise Book 4

Holly Bush

Book Description:

1873 –
Adam Gentry, heir to the celebrated Paradise Stables in Virginia, is haunted by the visions of his lost love. Feeling cursed by fate, he slips deeper into grief, shrouded in a cloud of liquor and depression, and neglects his duties and responsibilities. But when Adam is forced to accept that there’s nothing he can do to change his past, he knows he must move on. And he accepts his own destiny: that he will never love again.

Emmaline Somerset finds herself in the worst possible position any unmarried woman can be in. She will have to abandon all of her plans, hopes, and dreams for an independence using her own talents. The only viable solution is to move to a distant relative’s home and reinvent herself as a widow with an infant. No one will ever be the wiser.

Adam, now determined to secure the Gentry legacy, plans to save longtime family friend Emmaline from her embarrassment with an offer of marriage. But what Adam didn’t plan on was how his unexpected attraction to her would stir something inside of him, something he's kept locked deep within.

Can love finds its way between two troubled souls, one driven by duty, the other by honor, both determined to find their way home?

My 5-Star Review:

For Her Honor is the fourth and final installment of The Gentrys of Paradise series by the talented author, Holly Bush. I’ve read every one of this series and have enjoyed them very much. In fact, I’ve read all of Holly’s books, and have never been disappointed.

In For Her Honor, the oldest brother, Adam Gentry, is mourning the loss of the only woman he’s ever loved, and finds himself in the deepest, darkest despair. When finally he pulls himself up and once again takes over his duties of running the family business, Paradise Stables, he is met with a moral dilemma. A family friend, Emmaline Somerset, has found herself in the family way after having been preyed upon by an unworthy man. To help fix the problem, Adam swoops in and proposes marriage, promising to care for the child as if it were his own. He doesn’t do this out of love for Emmaline, but only to save her honor. Emmaline accepts, reluctantly, but soon finds herself looking at Adam in a whole different light.

For Her Honor is a wonderful story about two very determined people trying to find their way in a society of strict rules and expectations. Adam is the strong, silent type who wants to protect and always do what is right. Emmaline is a stubborn, willful woman who has dreams and goals of her own. But once these two come together, they find that maybe their differences are what can make this difficult relationship work.

Well-written and intriguing, as all of Holly’s books are, you will find yourself falling in love with the Gentry family. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys historical romance.
