Ginger Monette Darcy's Hope Beauty from Ashes listen to an excerpt

Heartbroken. Devastated.

 

WW1 Captain Fitzwilliam Darcy was rejected by the woman he loved and left grief-stricken over the loss of his men. “Enough!” Darcy vows, “No more sentimental entanglements. No comrades, no dog, and certainly no woman!”

 

But a covert assignment at a chateau-turned-field-hospital brings him face to face with his beloved Elizabeth—who's working with a dashing American doctor and embroiled in the conspiracy he's been sent to investigate.

 

Working side-by-side with her, Darcy is forced to examine his own heart and grapple with his feelings for her while searching for the traitors.

 

When a near-miraculous incident shatters the ice encasing his heart, he can only think of winning Elizabeth back. Will he be able to prove her innocence and build a lasting bridge with her before she's condemned to a traitor's noose?

 

Darcy can only hope….
