Embark on an exotic adventure in Book 2 of the Escape to Paradise series from bestselling author MaryLu Tyndall. In the fledgling colony of New Hope, their friends struggle to create a Southern utopia in Brazil soon after the Civil War. But Hayden is seeking revenge—relentlessly. And Magnolia is seeking a way out—desperately. They both seek to use the other for their own purposes—deceptively. Falling in love was never part of their plans. . . .


MaryLu Tyndall, a Christy Award Finalist, and best-selling author of the Legacy of the King’s Pirates series is known for her adventurous historical romances filled with deep spiritual themes. She holds a degree in Math and worked as a software engineer for fifteen years before testing the waters as a writer. MaryLu currently writes full time and makes her home on the California coast with her husband, six kids, and four cats. Her passion is to write page-turning, romantic adventures that not only entertain but open people's eyes to their God-given potential. MaryLu is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America.


I do love a book by MaryLu Tyndall, and she has penned another breathtaking novel with Elusive Hope. While the untamed land of Brazil would not have been my choice of a setting, Tyndall's writing nevertheless swept me into the story and kept me turning pages in this historical romance that includes danger, suspense, personal struggles, and a bit of the supernatural. While I loved the highly satisfying romance, my favorite part of this book was Magnolia's journey to learning what beauty really means. What a powerful message Tyndall has woven into this captivating novel! Don't miss this book and this series!
