From the Blurb given, I was definitely really intrigued to read this story, and throughout reading, and when I got to the end...I was not disappointed one bit! The story was very well thought out, and at one point there was an unexpected turn of events, an unexpected turn that I saw served the story, and you have to read to see what I'm talking about. Honestly there was not a part where I thought anything dragged; everything flowed really great, and the writing style, the language was all beautifully written, and it was like I was taken back to an older era of England, and I liked it. The characters were developed very well; we are given a good amount of background information, and for me, that's wonderful, as I need it to understand the characters better. Hope and George were wonderful to read, and you will see this type of romantic tension that seeps from them, as they know they should not fall for each other, but for some reason they cannot help it, but you have to see what different turns and obstacles are in front of them that betrays any happiness they seek with one another. This is a story that I really liked, and I'm now interested to read the first book in this Huntley Trilogy, so that is definitely going to be on my reading list soon. This novel was wonderful, and it is one I Recommend!

Hope's Betrayal is a straightforward historical read with nothing too unexpected happening. This is not a bad thing considering how comforting that sense of familiarity is while reading this book. The characters acted in a way that made sense, there were no big misunderstandings, and the relationship between the main characters evolved slowly over time as to add strength to their relationship. Hope Tyler has aristocratic blood in her but her family has fallen into smuggling to make a living. She's a smart and honorable girl and doesn't like having to commit crimes, but does it out of love for her family. The night she's captured by George Huntley shows her the path to a whole new life if she's just willing to accept the opportunity presented to her. Hope is strong-willed and loyal and is easily accepted by those trying to help her. Seeing her find moments of happiness was heartwarming to see. George Huntley sees life and the law in black and white until the night he locks eyes with Hope. At first he wants her to pay for her crimes, but as he hears her life story he knows he'll move heaven and earth to keep her safe. As a man who had closed himself off to love, Hope thaws his cold heart and brings joy and a sense of hopefulness to his life when he needs it most after being permanently maimed and having the course of his life totally upended. It's because of her that he sees the possibilities as opposed to everything he's lost. Hope and George are a wonderful couple. They acknowledge the difficulties that their class differences are to their budding relationship but this is where the power of love overcomes all. Their relationship evolves slowly and sensually over a year and a half and it isn't until the very end that things enter a more sexual level. George is that much of a gentleman and really won me over as the story progressed. He was quite arrogant at first but really showed and expressed his feelings as he realized how much he needed Hope. This is the second book in the Huntley Trilogy and can stand on its own. The main couple from the previous book make an appearance but it's more of a check-in to be updated on how they're doing. The glimpses we see on the remaining single brother have me excited for his story to be told as he's very sexy and sarcastic, a great combination. Hope's Betrayal gives fans of historical romance everything they want, a likable couple who find true love through an exciting and believable journey.

What a beautiful romance I absolutely adored this story and have had the most awesome few days reading it. If you are off on holiday and love historical romances this is one you will want to make sure is on your ereader. From the first page I was caught up with the characters’ lives. Captain Huntley, the Naval officer charged with routing out and squashing a smuggling ring becomes a wee bit smitten by a young lady called Hope, who just so happens to be a captured smuggler. A beautiful love story develops amidst some very exciting twists and turns and I would go so far as to say that this story is quite an action packed adventure. I took my Kindle up to the school to fetch my children and for the first time in 21 years I was late to fetch them. If you like history and romance you will love this story. Don’t say I didn’t warn you; the last half of the book has some really great action.
