Overview

Promises Linger

Book 1 in the Promises series by Sarah McCarty.

1868 Wyoming Territory

Elizabeth Coyote will do anything, anything at all, to save the ranch she loves, including marrying Asa MacIntyre, a broad-shouldered, lean-hipped silver-eyed gunslinger with a ruthless reputation for getting the job done.

Asa dreams of a place of his own, a wife, and the respect that comes with both. Marrying Elizabeth may have started as a means to an end, but nothing in Asa's wildest dreams prepares him for the excitement of unleashing the carnal woman beneath his wife’s prim and proper exterior.

“Those familiar with this author know she’s the queen of writing fresh, sensual westerns with characters that will remain with you long after the last page is turned.”—A Romance Review

Meet the Author

Sarah has traveled extensively throughout her life, living in other cultures, sometimes in areas where electricity was a concept awaiting fruition and a book was an extreme luxury. While she could easily adjust to the lack of electricity, living without the comfort of a good book was intolerable. To fill the void, she bought pencil and paper and sketched out her own story. In the process, Sarah discovered the joy of writing.

Sarah writes what she loves to read; fast paced stories with vivid dialogue, intense emotion and well developed characters. Her attention to detail in her stories has earned her multiple awards and a reserved spot on Keeper shelves everywhere.

Sarah writes for Harlequin HQN, Harlequin SPICE, Berkley HEAT and Berkley SENSATION.

    A great read

    First, I feel the need to preface my review with an explanation of the 5-star rating I've given. I've never given a book that high of a rating, mainly because I am highly suspicious of reviews that gush about a book that turns out to be underwhelming. So I am perfectly willing to admit that maybe I read this book at just the right time or that I was in just the right mood, and just because I think it's worth 5 stars doesn't necessarily mean you will all agree with me.

    But you should really agree with me. :) Because it was amazing.

    I fell in love with Asa, the quintessential Western alpha male, and with Elizabeth, the tough-yet-soft alpha female.

    One thing I especially loved about this story is that, even though it had a little bit of the stereotypical misunderstanding between the two main characters, it didn't fall into ridiculous territory. The male thinks he knows what's right for the female (leaving her), and she doesn't allow him any room to try. And the plot was an actual plot, not just an excuse for sex scenes.

    And speaking of sex scenes - this book contains a whole lot of hot, steamy, make-your-toes-curl ones. There's no rough play in it, but the language gets a little dirty. McCarty doesn't refer to his "stiff member" or her "aching valley;" she uses words that Amazon would block my review for. Also, there is some description of anal sex. If any of those are deal breakers for you, you shouldn't get this book.

    I loved this book so much, I immediately got the next two in the series (Promises Keep and Promises Prevail).

    Sarah McCarty has won me over!

    If you want to read a story that is HOT and mixed with tenderness and emotion, you've found what you've been looking for. Sarah McCarty is an excellent author who has an extraordinary talent for creating irresistibly sexy Alpha males and pairing them up with their perfect woman. This was my first book from Sarah McCarty, but I went on to read the next title in the 'Promises' series, Promises Keep which was also a keeper! I'm impatiently waiting for Sarah's next book!

    Tedious

    What a horribly written book! It shouldn't take 5 pages just to write out one feeling. I couldn't even finish. Terrible.

    Hard

    Had a hard time getting in to this book when I first started to read it, but I loved her Hell's Eight series so decided to try putting it away and read at a later time. So glad I did. Who wouldn't want a man like Asa? Good story, surprise villian. Very well written. Look forward to the rest of Promises books.

    Steamy and Sensual

    I was never a big fan of the western genre, but Sarah McCarty made a believer out of me. Great Characters, haunting backgrounds and clever storyline. She packages it all in a great story. I can't wait to read the rest of this series. You can't help but want everything to work out well for the characters. I couldn't put it down.

    Great book!!!

    This is one of those books that I will read many times over!! It's that much fun and entertaining. I loved calm - cool - controlled - studly Asa right off the bat, and was thrilled that Liz didn't end up being one of those stuffy - emotional - over reactive kind of ladies. Thank you, Sarah! Once again, your writing has given me 3 days worth of pleasure, awwww's and giggles. I look forward to buying up as many of your books as I can. =]

    hot and steamy

    I enjoyed everything about this book. It was erotic but in a romantic way, never crude. I could see all the sensual scenes unfolding within my imagination from the writng style of the author.
