Molly Burnett and Carter Richards share a painful past, one that sent Molly running out of town, vowing never to return. The only thing bringing her back is her sister’s wedding, and she doesn’t intend to stay long. But circumstances force her to remain in town, and within close distance of the one man who hurt her more than she’d ever been hurt before. Can the two of them face down the past and work together toward the possibility of love and happiness in Hope?



Hope Burns by Jaci Burton is the 3rd book in her Hope series. I love this series, as Jaci Burton never fails to give us a sweet heartwarming story, and another fabulous couple. These romances that take place in small towns are always romantic and charming.

Molly Burnett left home years ago after being heartbroken by her high school sweetheart. Molly forces herself to return home for her sister Emma’s wedding. Emma and Luke’s story was in Hope Flames.

Carter is our hero, and he is is the boyfriend who hurt Molly years before. Carter though has grown up, and is even more swoonworthy then he was before. Molly notices that right away, as she runs into Carter almost as soon as she arrives in town. But she is determined to keep her distance, which in time will become more difficult as each day passes. Carter is now successful, owning 4 auto repair shops. He is more responsible, and it doesn’t take long for him to try to win Molly back. Molly only plans to stay in town until after the wedding, which will change as an accident will force her to stay a lot longer then she wanted too.

What follows is a story of two people who lost their way many years ago, with one ready to begin again and the other too afraid to commit for fear of being hurt again. It is a very sexy romance, with Carter finding himself falling in love with Molly again. Their chemistry was off the wall, very hot and well written by Burton. Molly knows her feelings are still strong for Carter, and is enjoying their sexual escapades. Despite her renewed feelings, the hurt from so long ago continues to build on her fears . Can Molly control her wanderlust and stay in Hope? Can she trust her feelings for Carter, or will she run again?

Jaci Burton has given us another wonderful and steamy romance, and it was fun to see all the characters we are getting know so well in this series.   You need to read this series and join the fun that you will have in Hope.

  2. I first feel in love with Jaci Burton’s books with the Wild Riders series & after I devoured those, I gobbled up the Play-by-Play series. The Riley clan is such a sport crazed, fight toe to toe, but always have one another’s backs! I don’t know how I missed the Hope series, but I see myself with a BOOK POORER future!

  3. Have love this series since introduced to it here on TRC. Jaci Burton has become one of my favorite authors. Don’t enter me because I am buying it right now. Great review Barb.

  4. Great review! Love Jaci’s books and her covers! Seriously! She has the best covers ever!
