Ladies of Intrigue: 3 Tales of 19th-Century Romance with a Dash of Mystery by Michelle Griep

Can truth and love prevail when no one is as they appear?
The Gentleman Smuggler’s Lady
Cornish Coast, 1815
When a prim and proper governess returns to England from abroad, she expects to comfort her dying father—not fall in love with a smuggler. Will Helen Fletcher keep Isaac Seaton’s unusual secret?

The Doctor’s Woman (A Carol Award Winner!)
Dakota Territory, 1862
Emmy Nelson, daughter of a missionary doctor, and Dr. James Clark, city doctor aspiring to teach, find themselves working side by side at Fort Snelling during the Dakota Uprising. That is when the real clash of ideals begins.

A House of Secrets
St. Paul, Minnesota, 1890
Ladies Aide Chairman, Amanda Carston resolves to clean up St. Paul’s ramshackle housing, starting with the worst of the worst: a “haunted” house that’s secretly owned by her beau—a home that’s his only means of helping brothel girls escape from the hands of the city’s most infamous madam.

Michelle Griep is one of my favorite authors.  I love the way she weaves words together that draw me in so quickly and make me feel like part of the story.  Each of these stories are novella length but felt well developed and full.  I loved them all but I think that The Gentleman Smuggler's Lady might be my favorite.  Helen and Issac's first meet was fantastic.  It makes me smile just thinking about it.

You honestly cannot go wrong with this book.  Read them all at once, or one at a time.  Either way you will find a bit of happy for your day.

Content:  mild peril, kissing
