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.
