I love spicey historical romance and in my opinion Sarah McCarty has been known to deliver some of the best. The author returns with another adventure in her Promises series.
Jackson was a friend of the McKinnleys from the previous three books. He was a fabulous hero who rode in to save Mimi and her little ones from calamity. He also bested a very nasty villain in the end. This book was an adventure as well as a steamy passionate romance. I loved the rich characters and the light warmhearted humor with Mimi and the kids. I loved that Jackson was the white knight wearing a cowboy hat. I loved the genuine emotion. It was a lovely romance that also took a couple of gritty twists and tugged at my heart more than a time or two as Mimi's secrets were confessed. This was not unexpected from a Sarah McCarty book.
I read the first three books in this series about two years ago. I was instantly hooked on the Sarah McCarty's historicals and have followed her ever since. I enjoyed reading Jackson and Mimi's book very much. Hopefully, I won't have to wait as long for the next one in the series.
New York Times bestselling author Sarah McCarty returns to her Promise series with this next western historical romance.
She can run from the past, but not from their future...
As Jackson Montgomery heads home after collecting on a particularly difficult bounty, he's looking forward to a good meal, stiff drink, and maybe some female companionship. But when he sees signs of life in a house infamous for its second-rate construction, he can't resist taking a gander at who'd been fool enough to buy the disaster. He expects to find a tenderfoot for sure.
He's not far off.
Mimi Banfield thought she was done for when she fell into a well filled with rattlers, until a man shows up with the golden curls of an angel to rescue her. Jackson has all the survival skills she's missing and he's just the man to show her how to survive out West. As the newly minted guardian of three orphans, she could certainly use a hand. He seamlessly transitions into life with Mimi and the children, not knowing that she has a deadly secret. By the time she confesses, it may just be too late for salvation.
