So Bright A Hope (Daughters of His Kingdom #5) by Amber Lynn Perry

Synopsis:

When Caroline Whitney receives word that the brother she thought was dead is in fact a prisoner of war, she is frantic to rescue him. On the way to find help, she hides from the Redcoats, but is quickly discovered by a rugged British soldier who claims she must go with him, or be tried for espionage. The world would tell her this man is the enemy, but the veiled secrets in her captor’s eyes reveal he is more than he seems. If she fails to trust, more could be endangered than her life—her heart is bound to be broken a second time.

As a double agent in the service of Washington, British Captain James Higley must keep his true convictions a secret or face being killed as a traitor. On his newest mission, he discovers a courageous woman hiding in a barn, and is forced to capture her, or both their lives will be in jeopardy. When she offers her compliance in exchange for help in finding her brother, he accepts, despite his inner warnings. He must keep his distance from this alluring Patriot, or risk revealing not only his identity, but the true feelings of his heart.

My Thoughts:

This story had me on the edge of my seat and turning pages so rapidly that I may have gotten a paper-cut had I not been reading a digital copy. I was so deeply invested in the lives of these characters, I often found myself talking to my e-reader as if they could hear me.

With moments of laughter, unexpected twists, and dynamic characters that take a hold of your heart. This story is an important reminder that Liberty is more than a gift, it is a hard-earned privilege that the founders of this country fought for and believed in. You won’t want to miss this story and the journey within the pages that you won’t soon forget!

Amber Lynn Perry breaths life into the page with her stories. I am always excited to discover that a new story is available because I know that I am in for not just a delightful story that will captivate my senses, but one that is overflowing with emotion and intrigue. Be sure to pre-order your copy today!

My Review:

I fell into the story right from the very beginning and didn’t come up for air until I blissfully reached the end in a happy sigh of satisfaction. Full of romance an intrigue, this is a story you won’t want to miss!

Even though I’ve read several books since the last Everstone Chronicle, I didn’t feel like I missed a beat. I was easily transported back to the characters and setting. Cal and Nicholette are such charming characters, that you are sure to fall in love with them too!

Overflowing with emotion, this story had me feeling what the characters feel in an intoxicating rush of sensations. Dawn’s words wove around my heart and I was all too delighted to be along for the journey.

Cover Reveal – When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham

Welcome to the official COVER REVEAL blitz for When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

When You Look at Me is the 2nd book in the Pleasant Gap Romance Series and releases in October 2018.

About the Book:

When Julia Jenkins’ great aunt dies and leaves her a Victorian mansion with decades of secrets, Julia never expects to unearth a World War 2 espionage mystery. Struggling with her own past since an assault left her pregnant, her future as a solo parent leaves her dreams uncertain. The inheritance from her great aunt gives Julia the ability to take a step back into her future, but also sends her into the discovery of a love story she’d never anticipated. Following her aunt’s cryptic journal, Julia uncovers some oddly written piano music with a musical code she can’t decipher on her own. Not to worry, introverted Englishman and composer, Henry Wright, is thrust on the scene by a pair of homespun matchmakers who know the ‘right’ man for Julia’s wounded heart.

Henry arrives in Pleasant Gap with the task of composing the soundtrack for his best mate’s newest film. The Jenkins’ family’s southern welcome and gregarious personalities set his reticent nature on edge, but he’s inexplicably drawn to his gentle and music-loving hostess, Julia. Uncertain how to build a friendship with the wounded woman, and rather hopeless in communicating well through words, the bond of music becomes a bridge between her uncertainty and his awkwardness.

But her broken past and his families’ expectations build a wall much greater than the cultures that separate them. As they work together to solve a musical mystery from the grave, will an unlikely romance from the past inspire their hearts to trust in a God who’s written the perfect melody for their lives?

Now for the moment you have been waiting for…The Cover Reveal!
