Read A Hope Divided (The Loyal League #2) Online Free - The Civil War has turned neighbor against neighbor--but for one scientist spy and her philosopher soldier, war could bind them together . . .
For three years of the War Between the States, Marlie Lynch has helped the cause in peace: with coded letters about anti-Rebel uprisings in her Carolina woods, tisanes and poultices for Union prisoners, and silent aid to fleeing slave and Freeman alike. Her formerly enslaved mother's traditions and the name of a white father she never knew have protected her--until the vicious Confederate Home Guard claims Marlie's home for their new base of operations in the guerilla war against Southern resistors of the Rebel cause.
Unbeknowst to those under her roof, escaped prisoner Ewan McCall is sheltering in her laboratory. Seemingly a quiet philosopher, Ewan has his own history with the cruel captain of the Home Guard, and a thoughtful but unbending strength Marlie finds irresistible.
When the revelation of a stunning family secret places Marlie's freedom on the line, she and Ewan have to run for their lives into the hostile Carolina night. Following the path of the Underground Railroad, they find themselves caught up in a vicious battle that could dash their hopes of love--and freedom--before they ever cross state lines.

I really like how this woman writes! :)
The heroine here was weaker and more protected than the one in the previous book, but I appreciated how he grown up, even if I, and I suppose nobody else, didn't like the reasons that forced her to!
She is also a mixed race free woman, but where the previous...

I generally don't rate books I haven't read yet, but this book isn't gonna sit here with a 1-star rating because of a troll, so FIVE STARS. (Also, if you have not read the first book in this series, An Extraordinary Union, DO SO IMMEDIATELY, IT IS WONDERFUL.)
I have now officially read this...

Been sitting on my review on this for awhile.
This installment of the series is quite a bit different from the first book. Our intrepid heroes in this one are also spies for the North, but unlike Elle and Malcolm from the first book, Marlies and Ewan's spying isn't as overt.
Marlie is a free woman...

I have read Alyssa Cole before so I came into this book with high expectations especially with it being set in this historical period surrounding the conflicts of the Civil War. For the most part there were many redeemable qualities about this story, there is great histrical context, the characte...

This is a beautiful continuation as # 2 of the Loyal League series. The author has done her research on the Civil War times and the book has left me looking forward to a continuation of the series.
Highly recommended for lovers of historical romance.

My favorite thing about Alyssa Cole’s Loyal League historical romance series (other than the sexy bits) is the way she goes beyond the typical narratives of the Civil War and highlights characters and situations you probably haven’t read about before (but the sexy bits are great too!).
In A Hope...

I was not pleased that the first book in this series didn't really click with me. So many people enjoyed it! I wanted in on the party. But something about the romance between the MCs didn't gel with me, so I rated it three and a half stars and moved on with my life, hoping that book two would be...

Even better than the first book. I just wished for a less rushed ending, or a longer snippet of the hero and the heroine recuperating/readjusting after what happened throughout the book. That said, can't recommend it enough.

One of the best books I’ve read this year.
Even before I saw the bibliography at the back, it was obvious this was exquisitely researched to bring nuances of the Civil War to life. Pages 20-21 in particular set in a POW camp in the Carolinas, where noncombatants such as local Quakers, farmers too...
