About The Book:
A London officer goes undercover to expose a plot against the Crown
Dover, England, 1808: Officer Alexander Moore goes undercover as a gambling gentleman to expose a high-stakes plot against the king—and he’s a master of disguise, for Johanna Langley believes him to be quite the rogue. . .until she can no longer fight against his unrelenting charm.
All Johanna wants is to keep the family inn afloat, but when the rent and the hearth payment are due at the same time, where will she find the extra funds? If she doesn’t come up with the money, there will be nowhere to go other than the workhouse—where she’ll be separated from her ailing mother and ten-year-old brother.
Alex desperately wants to help Johanna, especially when she confides in him, but his mission—finding and bringing to justice a traitor to the crown—must come first, or they could all end up dead.
Where do I begin?? I loved this book! From the first page it had me hooked. I was already telling my family to read this book while I was still in the second chapter! Michelle Griep has a way with words. I really enjoyed how all her characters were different, and they stayed different throughout the whole book instead of blending together towards the end like some stories do. And then, you think you've figured it all out, but nope! Miss Michelle throws another curve! It was awesome! This story was filled with lots spiritual content, intrigue, suspense and plenty of laugh out loud moments! I really didn't want this book to end!
Note: There were a few fighting scenes that could be a little much for some people and some comments hinted at things I wasn't comfortable with. But I still loved this story! Miss Michelle is an author I definitely want on my shelf!
Favorite Quote From This Book (it was hard to pick just one!):

But wait! Don't go yet! Here is a giveaway you don't want to miss!
