For Honor or Love – my first historical romance

I’ve been a very bad author. My book For Honor or Love has been out since OctobMelanieMacek_ForHonororLove_800er 20th and this is the first blog post I’ve done about it. Well, I also started a new job that has been taking up most of my spare time when I get home.

So, here’s a bit about the story.

Ellsbeth Greene is working to keep her small family whole after the death of her mother. With her father working at the wharves, Ellsbeth is left to deal with the British garrison occupying Newport and with running their small homestead on the edge of town. The garrison commander has taken a liking to the young woman, which could not only threaten her family, but her safety as well.

Henry Bixby is a first generation Colonial raised in Boston. His unit is one of many stationed on Rhode Island in the town of Newport. Ellsbeth is the one bright spot in his life as a military officer. The British response to the American rebels fight for independence has left Henry disillusioned with King and Country. Is a chance at love worth turning his back on everything he was raised to believe?

This was a labor of love and interest. I never knew Newport, Rhode Island played such an important part in American history. Henry and Ellsbeth just would not leave me alone and now, thanks to their persistence, you can now read about their story.

Available for the following ereaders:

iTunes  Barnes & Noble  Amazon  Kobo  Adobe epub

I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did researching it. Please leave a review, so you can help other readers find the book!
