Blog Tour: THE SUSPECT'S DAUGHTER



Determined to help her father with his political career, Jocelyn sets aside dreams of love. When she meets the handsome and mysterious Grant Amesbury, her dreams of true love reawaken. But his secrets put her family in peril.

Grant goes undercover to capture conspirators avowed to murder the prime minister, but his only suspect is the father of a courageous lady who is growing increasingly hard to ignore. He can’t allow Jocelyn to distract him from the case, nor will he taint her with his war-darkened soul. She seems to see past the barriers surrounding his heart, which makes her all the more dangerous to his vow of remaining forever alone.

Book Review by Robyn Echols:

          I loved this book. I enjoyed several aspects of the story beyond the delightful storyline itself.
          The characters were engaging. Joselyn Fairley, the suspect’s daughter, was a sweetheart, but no dummy. Once she realized the objective of the man who posed a threat to her family, she went about dissuading him. Grant Amesbury, a tortured man in more respects than one, had little faith in human nature, particularly the female kind. He was a disagreeable, but sympathetic hero I hoped would find the road to happiness.
          I was pleased the story did not focus on the immoral behavior of the elite of the time. Instead, there was an atmosphere of family love, loyalty to friendship (even though some of that loyalty proved misguided) and an adherence to good values.
          I especially liked how the story went beyond the ho-hum “does he love me, does he not” of the romance genre. The plot was complex and intriguing. This romantic suspense that definitely kept me in suspense. A little “smoke and mirrors” and few “red herrings” in the story kept me guessing to the end just who were the good guys and who were the bad guys.
          This is a sweet romance and I highly recommend it.


Snippets

He’d have to walk a fine line between getting close enough to the family to covertly investigate the father without giving them any reason to believe he’d be a desirable match for the daughter. He was completely out of his element. He’d have to be polite. It was so much easier to be rude to people so they’d leave him alone, and people generally gave him so many reasons to insult them.


***
Gritting his teeth, he determined to survive the painful ritual of tea with two ladies. He’d faced down enemy soldiers trying to kill him, watched friends die, met danger head-on with his brothers—witnessed one of them shot, and one of them hanged and then battle his way back from near death. Grant had even endured torture and captivity. Surely he could emerge unscathed from such domestic tranquility. If he hurried. And if he could burrow more deeply into his role of earl’s son who frequented parlors and ladies and tea.
