When Clara Moore learns of her brother’s unthinkable scheme—to take her to England and force her into a hasty marriage—she knows she must escape New York. But when she finds out who has accepted the job of taking her to Boston, she almost rethinks her own hurried plan. For the handsome man who comes to her aid is none other than her former love, Ethan Barrik. He left her heart in shambles six years before. Can she trust him a second time?

Ethan Barrik is no stranger to struggle. But tracking the enemy, and war-time spying are nothing compared to the pain of regret. Ready at last to leave his past behind, he accepts one final job for a friend, only to discover the person he’s really helping is the woman he still loves. Despite her ire, he knows he must make every attempt to make it right—and hope she will find a way to forgive him and give their love another chance.


This little book packs a big punch. This is the second book I have read by Amber. I really liked the first one so I didn’t hesitate to pick this one up. I really like her writing style and nothing is lost in this short story.

Ethan and Clara definitely frustrated me. I just wanted them to speak the truth. Of course if that happened too soon there would be no story. The way these two are thrown together makes for a very interesting story.

So Bright a Hope reviewer tour


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:

What a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed this story by a new-to-me author.

First, I was drawn in by the cover, I think it is just beautiful.

But the most important part is the story and whether that can keep my attention and that it did.

The romance was spicy and I loved it. Amber knows how to write a good kissing scene.

Caroline was a strong young woman and I appreciated her perseverance even when things looked horrible.

And James, well, he was just a perfect hero. I kept wanting him to tell Caroline that he was a spy so they could know they were on the same side, but all in good time 🙂
