After years of all but selling his soul to track down his scoundrel of a father, Hayden Gale discovers his search must continue in South America, where his father is reported to be helping colonize Brazil.  Hayden has nothing more to lose, certainly not a good reputation, and vows to keep pursuing - at any cost - the vile man who he believes killed his mother.

She's in the jungles of Brazil against her will, but what choice does Magnolia Scott have?  Her father insisted on uprooting their family to escape the uncertainty of Southern life after the Civil War.  But how will she survive without all she holds dear - wealthy suitors, beautiful clothes, summer balls, and slaves waiting on her every whim?  She vows to find a way to get back home - and attaches herself to handsome Hayden Gale.

As they journey toward Rio de Janeiro, they each seek to use the other for their own purposes.  Deceptively.  Falling in love was never part of their plan...

My Review

Finally settled in Brazil in a colony named New Hope, everyone is trying to adjust to the new climate and culture away from the United States.  Magnolia Scott, born and raised up as a Southern Belle on a cotton plantation in Rosewell, Georgia, but now living in Brazil against her will by her father’s orders is trying to make her way through the Brazilin jungles to make her way back to the states to the life she once knew and was comfortable with.  Hayden Gale, a man mixed between a bad boy and a charmer, vows to find his good-for-nothing father who abandoned his mother and him at a very young year leaving his mother to perish.

“Elusive Hope” is the second book to the series Escape to Paradise.  This story takes place in Brazil where the colony, New Hope, is trying to find hope in a brand new future of living, which they are finding things difficult to accomplish.  Magnolia is trying to find some hope where she can find a way back to states to be reunited to her fiancĂ© when her parents took her away against her will to Brazil.  Then Hayden is on a desperate search in trying to have hope in finding his father after what he did to his mother, when he hears of news of his father was helping some colony in Brazil.  Dig into reading how Magnolia and Hayden get through their difficulty trails of what they are hoping for or if the two will put their utmost hope in God to where things will come much easier for them.  “Elusive Hope” is filled with many different kinds of adventure, darkness, deception, drama, laughter, love and romance to keep you wondering what is going to happen next or even if the characters are going to survive their new life in Brazil!
