Welcome and thank you for stopping by!

The second of The Velvet Basement Series is available to read. 


“The second book in Holland’s Velvet Basement series features two strong characters whose unconventional and passionate courtship will keep readers turning pages. Her incorporation of Shibari provides a unique, refreshing look at Victorian England and its interpretation of foreign cultures. This is no typical romance–readers should expect scenes involving BDSM–and Holland continues to surprise and delight.”~ RTBookReviews  4 STARS SCORCHER

“In The Bound Heart, the second book in the Velvet Basement series, Elsa Holland reaches far beyond the standard formula of romance yet her work is accessible and touching. Ms. Holland writes of extreme subject matter with a grace and subtlety that cannot be learned as shown in her portrayal of the lead characters unconventional deep-seated and beautiful courtship……” Jenerated Reviews– Book 2 of The Velvet Basement Series

 “This is NOT your grandmother’s Victorian England era romance! Ms. Holland continues to amaze me in the boundaries she pushes in the historical romance genre. I was blown away with the first book and the second book is no different. She tackles a darker side of the Victorian romance, but not without delivering an HEA for which we long.”~ Amazon Reviewer, Jennifer G– Book 2 of The Velvet Basement Series
