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.
Thrilling adventure awaits! Right from the very first chapter, I was captivated. This delightful story holds many exciting twists and unexpected surprises. The characters are dynamic and realistic. I didn’t want to look away from one moment! This is a stand-alone novel, however, savvy readers will recognize a few familiar characters from Brentwood’s Ward.
Alexander Moore is a handsome, smooth-talking hero with a heart of gold. He may be undercover, but his true character still shines through. When Alex discovers that the stakes are higher than even he imagined, will he be able to stay true to himself, or will he lose all he holds dear?
Johanna is a spunky young woman who is strong-willed and independent. Since her father’s death, she has taken on the role of trying to keep the family inn afloat and keep her mother, little brother and herself out of debtors prison. I love the fact that Johanna grows and learns to let go of the worry and give it to God. This is something that I’m sure we all struggle with from time to time.
This story has something for everyone. A hunky hero, a strong heroine, unique, vivid secondary characters, a fast-paced plot with surprises around every corner, characters with genuine faith and a gentle reminder that we must take our burdens to the Lord and he will be faithful to see us through any hardship or trial.
I highly recommend this fantastic story and give it 5 enthusiastic stars! Grab yourself a copy today!

About the Author:
I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter. Way cheaper. I’ve been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write…except for that graffiti phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
