Temptation and Surrender

Temptation and Surrender by Stephanie Laurens (Cynster Novel)c
Description: Jonas Tallent needs someone to run the inn that he is responsible for. The previous innkeeper wasn’t very good and the service went downhill fast. When he meets Emily Beauregard he is intrigued. She is one of five. She comes with great references (which he can tell immediately are falsified) and offers that the rest of her family will work as well.

Jonas can’t help but go with his gut and despite the warning signs hires Emily. Emily is a great worker and will be an asset to his inn. The only thing is that Jonas (and the town) doesn’t know what Emily and her family’s real reason is for moving to this small town village.

Emily’s family lived there many years before. And there has been rumors in the family that a treasure was buried there. Emily must find it – her family is destitute and she wants what is best for all of them.

The Cynster family is a great family to read about (makes you want to be a part of it). They are wild and crazy but also loving and caring. I always enjoy these books.

I hope Stephanie Laurens keeps finding external family members to write about! The family tree is getting a bit crowded but a lot of their stories are told.

The idea of a female innkeeper who is single and providing for her family is something I have never seen before. I thought it was great.

What genre would you consider this?

Historical Romance
