Author Betty Shreffler – “For a book that will take your heart on an emotional rollercoaster dive into Resurrecting Hope!”
Author Dani Rene – “When Jane told me she’s writing a dark romance, I had no doubt she’d absolutely kill it, but this is so much more.”
Socially Book Nerd – “I am in awe of Jane’s ability to take a photo inspiration and turn it into something I could have never imagined.”
I’m not the woman he claims he loves.
Hope Moon is a figment, a fairy tale. A single mom with sunny smiles on the outside, but whose pitch-black insides are riddled with demons.
I can’t look him in the face, can’t tell him who I am.
If I let my guard down, Jack will find me.
Jack’s wrath left me bound in hell.
Can Hank’s love set me free?
I’ve been hurt.
I’ve been used.
I’ve been betrayed.
But Hank Lawless isn’t a man to be trifled with.
Hope Moon has caught me like a fly in a web. Her gaze is haunted, her moves calculated. There’s more to the dark haired beauty than meets the eye. She’s hiding something.
I need to find a way to break down her defenses.
I vowed to walk beside her through her own personal hell.
But is my love enough to free her from it?

Nikki K’s Review:
A woman with a dark past; a man with no plans for his future and a small town in the south. These are the bones of the story, but not the heart. The real story is in the details, the insights, and the backstory that is revealed one puzzle piece at a time. From the very first words, all I wanted was to find out who Hope Moon is and how she came to be.
I have only recently discovered Jane Anthony and I can honestly say she is on my list of must read authors. As in her previous books, Resurrecting Hope is very smartly written and captivating. She has created three dimensional characters in Hope and Hank and allowed their story to evolve, rather than just serving it up wrapped in a bow. The build up kept me interested in their lives, their story. And I love that!
Resurrecting Hope offers all the feels from love to anger, sadness to joy and fear to ecstasy. There are Oh s**t moments, in between the twists that made me think WTF; intermingled with sensual moments that left me needing to fan myself to cool my sparked libido.
In conclusion… I FLOVE this book. Ms. Anthony definitely delivered a sexy, intriguing and well written story. I highly recommend Resurrecting Hope to all who enjoy suspenseful romance. I rate this book 5 absolute stars and can’t wait for the next offering from this author.
