Please join me in congratulating Holly Bush on the publication of her newest historical romance, The Bareknuckle Groom, the second book in her Thompsons of Locust Street series! I had the pleasure of providing some copyediting assistance, and I designed the cover. Here's the book description:
1869. Bareknuckle champion James Thompson is confident his future continues with beautiful women and victories in the boxing ring. Men admire his skills, power, and quick fists and are more than willing to bet their hard-earned coins on his name. Women admire his handsome face, his undaunted confidence, and his powerful body. Nothing will change his successfully plotted course, until…
Lucinda Vermeal arrives on the Philadelphia social scene when her father moves them to the city in the hopes that his only daughter will find a suitable partner. After all, her husband will be intimately involved with Vermeal Industries, whose business interests and political connections touch France, England, and all of the United States. Lucinda’s pale statuesque beauty attracts the finest of Philadelphia’s young men, but her cool and reserved attitude keep them at arm’s length. Until she meets a man willing to challenge her at every turn.
Will James Thompson expose Lucinda's passionate nature like no other man ever could?
