Excerpt: Now that her worst fear had come to pass, surprisingly she wasn’t as crushed as she’d imagined. The sun still shone, the wind still blew, and God yet reigned in the heavens.
The story begins in Dover, England in the year 1808. The book is filled with adventure, espionage, and romance. What a delicious combination of elements for a Regency novel!
Meet Alexander Moore, alias Alexander Morton, a Bow Street runner on a secret assignment and Miss Johanna Langley, co-proprietor of the Blue Hedge Inn. These two strong-willed characters both have their own missions to accomplish. On the surface Alex appears to be a distinguished gentlemen working for his father by day and gambling in high stakes games at night. Johanna is exactly what she appears to be, a hard working innkeeper struggling to keep her family out of the poor house.
How do two such mismatched people fall in love? Read this intriguing novel to find out if and how Alex and Johanna’s romance survives the turmoil of treason, smuggling, and the poor house. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and definitely recommend it. This book is an engaging read for lovers of historical fiction, Regency fiction, and Christian fiction.
