Between The Pages - Love's Debt

Love’s Debt

By Rachel Brimble
September 2012

To keep herself from the depths of poverty, Milly Shepherd needs to be appointed manager of the Red Lion Tavern. The elderly owner is in failing health and has promised her the job permanently if no one more suitable applies. Milly will fight with her entire being to make the job her own. 

Joseph Jacobs needs to supplement his income to pay off his father's creditors and save him from debtor's prison. Though the job as manager of the local tavern looks promising, Milly is favored by both the owner and customers. Instead, Joseph swallows his pride and agrees to tend bar. 

As they work together, their attraction grows, their goals cross, and both Millie and Joseph find they must face their fears --the question is whether they face them alone or together?

Between the Pages of this story is a compelling  historical that places the reader in every scene. The characters are believable and true to their families. Milly is an independent woman trying to prove she can do the job, while Joseph is trying to stay afloat while saving his father from destruction. Neither are looking for love, but their attraction is undeniable. This is a well-crafted sweet romance full of warmth, and a pace that keeps you reading to the end. I look forward to reading more from this author.
