River Queen Rose by Shirley Kennedy - Cover Reveal


RIVER QUEEN ROSE
by
Shirley Kennedy

Genre: Historical Romance
Pub. Date: 12/26/2017

The ramshackle River Queen Hotel is home to vagabonds, gamblers, and
heathens—and now, to new widow Rose Peterson. The rundown Gold Rush
establishment is the only thing her late husband, Emmet, left her.
Despite its raucous saloon and ladies of the evening, Rose can see
the hotel’s potential. Her late husband’s family claim that
sheltered Rose isn’t capable of running the Sacramento inn herself.
But she is determined to make a new life for herself and her young
daughter, even if it means flying in the face of custom and
propriety. She feels as if she hasn’t a friend in the world.

Except, perhaps, one. Decatur “Deke” Fleming, a tall, lanky Australian
who once served as Emmet’s farmhand. Pride prevents Deke from
revealing his moneyed past; conscience keeps him from confessing his
feelings for the still grieving widow. But when Rose is tempted by
wealthy civic leader and hotel owner Mason Talbot, Deke may be the
only person who can save her—and the one man capable of reviving
her bruised and battered heart . . .
