STORY: When pastry chef Jane Gray tries to sell her daughter’s locket, she becomes the unlikely subject of a massive police hunt and fodder for London’s tabloid press. Secrets unravel, lies are exposed, and the Duke of Rutledge demands custody of his niece.
Charming and handsome, the duke’s brother Finn spends his leisure time between the sheets of London’s most beautiful, wanton women. The seasoned rake is perplexed by his attraction to demure, virtuous Jane… definitely not his usual type. It soon becomes evident there is more to Jane than meets the eye and Finn longs to possess the passionate woman hidden beneath her modest facade.
When the publicity draws the attention of a madman from Jane’s past and Finn is forced to enter London’s dangerous underworld in a heart-stopping race to save her.
REVIEW: Have you ever read a book that after you read that last sentence, you had this overwhelming urge to start reading it all over again, just to make sure that it was as good as you thought it was?
Well, that’s how I felt as I finished reading THE PROMISE. I just couldn’t believe that this was a début [DEBUT!] novel. Last time I felt like that was after reading Grace Burrowes’ THE HEIR and time before that was Judith James’ BROKEN WING.
I honestly can’t remember what attracted me to this book or if anybody recommended it to me, but I found myself reading the Amazon sample of it and rushed to buy it as soon as the sample was finished.
The cover and the blurb are good, but the book is an amazing story of true, passionate and just so sweet love. Ms. Kate Worth played her characters like a violin! She made even me fall in love with Finn, Cam, Augustus and the urchins, Coop and Ben! Hell, she made me love even the butler, Peckham! She left me wanting even their happily ever after…And how about the Duchess Justine, Cam and Finn’s mama, herself? I’m thinking she deserves a love interest of her own…Come to think of it, that’s not a bad idea…
When an author leaves me in a state of dreaming up HEA’s for the characters that she populated her story with, I call that great writing. When she has me in tears while I laugh and cry at the antics of her characters, I call that great writing. When I want to smash the villains face in, I call that great writing. Not wanting the book to ever end, I call that great writing…
If you don’t read this book, you’ll miss out on an adventure, intrigue and an overall passionate romance that will touch your heart and your funny bone…
And I know you don’t want to miss out on that!
