Overview

Promises Prevail

Book 3 in the Promise series by Sarah McCarty.

1870 Wyoming

Widowed and barren, Jenna sees the newborn left on her doorstep as a priceless gift worthy of any sacrifice. She knows she'll need a husband to keep the baby, but nothing prepares her for the one who steps up. Big and dark, simmering with deadly intensity, Clint McKinnely could put fear into the devil. He certainly strikes fear into her, but Jenna soon discovers the man behind the reputation is the one man she longs to trust.

A hard man burned out by the choices he's made, Clint is looking for a reason to go on. He finds one in Jenna Hennessy. Lushly plump, sweet and shy, she calls to him on every level. When it looks as though Jenna might lose the daughter she loves for lack of a husband, Clint steps forward. Having Jenna in his home brings Clint a peace he's never known, but even as he ferrets out the secrets that haunt Jenna's nightmares, Clint keeps his own close to his chest, knowing this marriage is temporary because there are some sins a man can’t expect his wife to forgive.

5 STARS!!!

"Sarah McCarty delivers again with Promises Prevail... With her usual flair she has created a powerfully erotic, emotional, and thought provoking romance that draws you in from the first chapter and refuses to let go, keeping you wishing for more even after the story ends. I laughed, cried, shivered and moaned. Clint and Jenna are so full of life that you can’t help losing yourself in their story. Promises Prevail is unquestionably a 10 on the sizzle scale."

    Very Real!

    This was such a good story. Very real and very moving. I felt bad for all the bad things that happened to Jenna before Clint. I can't wait to read about Rev. Brad.

    Escape into this hot historical book

    Amazing hot, historic book. This book hooked me from the start and sucked me into its pages. What a great escape from the day to day demands of work, motherhood and marriage. Thanks for the break from reality!

    Great story, but jumped around just a bit too much.

    This was a great story in a great series. I loved how the characters reacted to eachother andhownthe ending played out. My only complaints are that it took till the end of the book to find out what caused her injury before the story took place and that occasionaly the story would jump around too much and get somewhat confusing for me. I also wish the females in this series had believable inner strength. I know the stories all show them getting stronger as they go, but it seemed fake or just words to me. Like they all had to get strength from their husbands.

    I love how this author can take me away and make me forget laundry, dishes, and sometimes even kids. Always sad to see the end of her books.

    THIS Book was MUCH Better!

    Clint and Jenna are quite believable as a couple in the Wyoming 1800's. Although the women are supposed to be meek and do whatever the hubby tells them to, Jenna comes out of her shell quite nicely in this 3rd installment of the "Promises" western series. And from what Jenna experienced when she was younger, she emerged much stronger, due to her inner strength and due to Clint's help. Definitely an excellent read!!!

    To be held safely...

    I cannot think of a single reason anyone would not like Promises Prevail. I was so utterly captivated by Jenna's chance for happiness, I could not look away--not even when hearts were breaking all over the place (mine included). You know that feeling that overcomes even the strongest (intellectually, emotionally) women at times? The one that makes you literally want to crawl up and into a man that makes you feel safe? The trace of hope you hold (along with your breath) when you think you've found that man, that safety? Then the relief you feel--however tenuous at first--once you get there? That is how this story made me feel from nearly the first page. It's that ability to move me, to draw me into a story so deeply that I actually hold my breath here or laugh out loud there...it's that ability that makes Sarah McCarty undoubtedly one of the best authors I've ever read. There will never be a story published by McCarty that I will not read.

    Another good book in the series

    This is the 3rd book in the Promises series.

    I have to admit it, I'm a sucker for a hot alpha male in a cowboy hat. I liked Clint from his appearances in the first two books, and I loved him in this one.

    Just like the other two, there's some pretty hot, toe-curling sex scenes in this book, but not as many and not as rough. Clint and Jenna like it just a bit more gentle than the previous couples. Jenna brought more baggage with her than the heroines in the first two books, and she needed a gentler hand because of it.

    One of my favorite parts of this book was the way Jenna and Clint built their family - by choice rather than by blood. They both have a soft spot for the hurting (although Clint's is a lot harder to see than Jenna's), and the idea of family and community was much stronger in this book than in the other two.

    I was not pleased with the way Jenna put herself in danger toward the end of the book. It didn't seem to gel with her character, and therefore sort of threw off the flow of the story for me. However, it was still a really good book

    Sad, and not emotionally so.

    I hated the characters ...all of them. The storyline, which should have been inspiring was instead extremely depressing. Clint was an ass and she was a doormat. I stopped reading before I hurt myself rolling my eyes.

    Oh boy...and I thought Cougar was yummy.

    Clint even outdoes Cougar, plus the heroine is NOT perfect. She's been abused, has a bad leg, and has fears of men because of her past marriage. The sex of course is ultra hot. This one is a definite KEEPER.

    Another fabulous book by Sarah McCarty

    Sarah McCarty has done it again! If you love westerns, romance, great characters and plots that draw you into the story and don't let go until the last word is read, then you need to buy Promises Prevail. The heroine Jenna is a character who initially seems so beaten down and vulnerable by everything that has happened to her, but through her love of Clint and his strength begins to recognise her inner strength. Clint is the kind of man most women want to fall in love with. Strong, compassionate,gentle and protective, but without being overbearing. I found myself laughing and crying while reading this book. I loved this story and can not wait until Ms. McCartys next book is out!
