The Innkeeper's Daughter

Tension is high with the threat of a Napoleonic attack in Regency England, but risk from abroad means nothing when there’s danger at home.

Officer Alexander Moore goes undercover as a gambling gentleman to expose a high-stakes plot against the crown—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.

It’s a race against time for them both.

With colorful characters, amusing scenes and engaging storytelling, Griep pens a captivating read. Alexander is an honorable hero, and the subtle, genuine attraction between him and Johanna will appeal to readers. The strong, riveting tension between characters, coupled with two main characters who constantly turn to God in moments of struggle, gives this romance a well-rounded richness that can’t be matched.
