Publisher Description

Esperanza has it all planned out: She will tell Don Raúl that she can’t marry him, break off their engagement, and persuade her parents to let her marry the man she loves instead. After all, Artie is a hero. How could any parent object to welcoming such a brave man into their family?

However, it soon becomes clear that the jealous Don Raúl will not give her up as easily as she had hoped. When Artie’s heroic sacrifice becomes the talk of the town, Raúl realizes that his bride’s heart lies elsewhere… and he decides to use the information to his advantage.

Forced to choose between her own freedom and Artie’s, Esperanza must take desperate measures to save the man she loves. But as revolution looms and even families begin to turn against each other, danger lurks around every corner—and she soon learns that the greatest threats can come from the places you least expect.

Esperanza will do anything to protect Artie. But with Artie’s attacker still at large, a vengeful Don Raúl determined to hang him for treason, and a bloody revolution brewing all around them, will her efforts be too little, too late?

Led by strong female characters, A HERO’S HOPE turns the common damsel in distress trope on its head. Based on real historical events, this thrilling page-turner story of love and courage in the face of adversity follows characters on an emotional journey through laughter, tears, passion, and heartbreak.


There are fates worse than death. Being forced to watch the woman you love marry the man you hate is one of them.

Artie always knew that Esperanza was out of his league. The beautiful daughter of a wealthy landowner, she sees him beyond his ragged clothes and lack of social status. But unfortunately, Esperanza’s parents are not so open-minded. Blinded by money, they are determined to marry her to the ruthless Don Raúl regardless of her feelings on the matter.

Artie has to find a way to save her, or he will lose her forever. But standing up against the Don will earn him a warrant for his own execution. There is only one way to stop Raúl from using his life as a bargaining chip to force Esperanza’s hand... but will Artie have the strength to go through with it?
