This was another good story in the Sierra Chronicles and I highly recommend you read book one first as you get to know the people and the background of the characters in book 2. Jake Bennett is married to Jessica Hale now and the love they share is unconditional. Jessica tries to hold back her disappointment in not being able to bear children from Jake and Jake holds back his worry that life is too hard on the drought striken ranch for Jessica to want to stay and love the place as much as he does. They both are trying to protect each other from the dangers they keep encountering and protect their Paiute Indian friends, and their horse herd. Someone is out to harm Jessica and you really aren't sure who till the very end. This was a story of love. It wasn't a story of who will end up with who, but of how much two people care for each other and how much they want to be there for each other through thick and thin. I enjoyed the message behind the story. ( )

I enjoyed the storyline of "Hope's Promise", but I didn't read the first book of the series, and feel I've really missed things. This book appears to have picked up where "Love's Rescue" left off. It felt like I had "walked" into the middle of a movie or conversation, being somewhat lost but still enjoying what I part I was exposed to.

Jess is a strong woman who faces many problems and dangers. She loves fiercely, and lives in a time and place that is difficult for a man, let alone a woman. She goes to great measures to protect those that she loves, and what she does, makes the story quite exciting.

After reading this book, I really want to get my hands on "Love's Rescue". I crave the character development and learning about all the events that took place before "Hope's Promise". There are so many references back to things that happened before, that I feel this just doesn't work as a stand-alone. ( )
