About the Book:
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.
Finally! We hear Higley's story! Higley has proven himself a true hero in other books from this series, but in So Bright a Hope he risks his life more than once to protect the woman he's admittedly grown to love. From their first meeting the fire between these two is evident! The romantic tension between them alongside the ever-present danger as they run to evade capture creates scene after scene of intense action mixed with tender moments. Enjoyed revisiting favorite characters from other stories, as well as, meeting new friends of The Great Cause (I would love to know Edmond's story!).
