Overview

Isabella is determined to marry James...

Isabella Weston has loved James Sheffield for as long as she can remember. Her come-out ball seems the perfect chance to make him see her in a new light.

James is determined never to marry...

James is stunned to find that the impish girl he once knew has blossomed into a sensual goddess. And if he remember his lessons correctly, goddesses always spell trouble for mortal men.

A compromise is clearly necessary...

When Izzie kisses James, her artless ardor turns to a masterful seduction that drives him mad with desire. But, no stranger to heartbreak, James is determined never to love, and thus never to lose. Can Isabella convince him that a life without love might be the biggest loss of all?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fans of Julia Quinn will find much that is familiar and enjoyable in Lindsey's debut 1790s romance, the first book of the Weston family saga. Isabella Weston is finally out and in pursuit of her older brother's best friend, James Sheffield. Orphaned at age 10 and raised by a chilly grandfather, young James believed he was incapable of love. As Izzie schemes to persuade James that love is not a weakness, her six siblings, all named after Shakespearean characters, demonstrate their dramatic flair and knack for falling into improper situations. Despite this all too familiar plot, Izzie and her siblings are entertaining as they teach James about the love of a family, friends, and a very determined wife. (Feb.)
Library Journal
By the time she was six, Isabella Weston knew she was going to marry James Sheffield, her brother's best friend. When she was 19, enchantingly lovely, and intrepid to a fault, she launched her attack. One night was all she needed to seal his fate, but it took the stubborn, love-wary James a lot longer to find the courage to risk everything and finally give his heart. VERDICT Skillful, descriptive writing, engaging protagonists who eventually mature nicely, steamy sensuality, a wealth of interesting secondary characters, and snippets of Izzie's sometimes hilarious correspondence put a delightful spin on a classic plot that is a marvelous debut and perfect introduction to a promising series about the Weston siblings. Lindsey lives in Los Angeles.

    Georgian romance readers will fully appreciate the first Weston sibling tale

    In 1784, the oldest of five sisters six years old Isabella Weston wrote a letter to her dear mama telling her she will marry her older brother Henry's best friend, James Sheffield. Years later, she still knew he was the one for her. With her coming out in 1797, Izzie plans to claim James as hers.

    James was raised by an ice cold grandfather after his parents died when he was ten. He learned from the nasty old man that he was unworthy of love. Izzie begins her seduction scheme with a dress that will make him desire her. She follows with a kiss that leaves him senseless. Izzie knows James wants her and believes he loves her, but he rejects the concept that someone could love him. With her six siblings at her side, the magnificent seven mount a campaign to prove to James he belongs first to Izzie and second to all of them.

    Although somewhat straightforward of a plot, Georgian romance readers will fully appreciate the first Weston sibling tale due to a strong lead couple and a fully developed support cast; especially her sisters. Obstinate Izzie knows who she wants and plans to make him hers. James is the more fascinating character as he believes strongly no one could ever love him, but General Izzie and her sisters mount a campaign to prove his assertion false. Promise Me Tonight (and forever) is a wonderful opening act with homage to the Bard.

    Full of Romance!

    This was a great read...it was more romance-packed than action-packed. I couldn't put it down.

    Fun characters, but a bit light on story.

    Sara Lindsey has managed to create a tidy little romance novel that is well-structured and full of memorable characters. In fact, I have never encountered such a darling character as the lead in this novel, Isabella. She's vibrant, she's flawed, she's passionate, and she's charming even when being imperious. Lindsey has certainly managed to capture something special in that little package of oomph and awww.

    Perhaps my only disappointment in the story is not that it's a bad story, not at all, but that it would benefit from just one more layer of plot. It's almost too simple in its conflict, and with such intellectual handling of the characters and their personalities, I have faith that Lindsey will manage to translate that creativity to a more dense and meaty story in future books.

    All in all, Promise Me Tonight is a light, enjoyable romp with some delightful characters, and a charming debut from a talented young writer.

    Promise Me Tonight Review

    This is a great book and it was exciting the entire time. There were happy moments, angry moments, and sad moments, very thrilling and touching. I enjoyed it tremendously and do have to say that I haven't read a book this good for a long time.

    Not A Good Read

    I found this book to be unable to hold the readers attention. It dragged and I did not even finish it. It went straight to the sell books pile. This would be a good book to borrow from the library.

    Promise Me Tonight

    The beginning of a series? Check. Love with best friend's sister trope? Check. Debut author with a good deal of buzz? Check.

    One of my favorite romantic tropes is falling in love with BFF's sister/brother. I may like this type of story more than a secret baby plot. Regardless, what I loved about Isabella Weston is her confidence. Confident she loves James; confident that James loves her (especially after her coming out); confident they belong together.

    The final third of the book doesn't sit well with me because Izzie has lost this spark, this drive, this confidence. Certainly, she's been through a ordeal until this point of the book -- no one blames her for her decisions or her reactions to the hand life has dealt her. I just wanted her to react differently and felt disappointed when she didn't, when she seemingly lost all her previous gumption and determination and, yes, confidence until James decides to pull his head out of the sand.

    That being said, Ms. Lindsey crafts a well-rounded and strong heroine, qualities I hope I see again in June with Tempting the Marquess, which features Isabella's younger sister, Olivia.
