Overview

They met at a wild party and neither forgot the experience. Each came away with a completely different perception of what happened when Judith Reid, an ill at ease seventeen-year-old college student, captured Dev McAllister's attention. He succeeded in breaking through her icy demeanor, but the minute things heated up, she ran.

He tried everything he could think of to get her to go out with him, only to be rejected. Finally, he admitted defeat and accepted the truth as he saw it. Judith Reid was a snob, no different from all those other women he'd met through his wealthy college roommate. In fact, she was worse because she had him believing in love at first sight, when in reality, she seduced him and left him wanting. He swore to even the score no matter how long it took.

Judith, a commercial interior designer, is lured into his grasp with the prospect of remodeling an office-building Dev knows holds significance for her. However, his plans backfire, and from the moment he sees Judith again, he's captivated, and struggles against another empty seduction.

PROMISES, PROMISES is the second in the California Series where four friends, caught in a time warp, can't move on because they're stuck on their idea of their perfect dreams. But sometimes life works in mysterious ways and they are forced by circumstances to change.

Meet the Author

Sandy Loyd was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. Wanderlust hit early on and she has lived a varied life since then. She joined the Army to see the world and to get an education. Living and training in four states and Germany during the three-year stint provided a cultural education. She graduated from Arizona State University with a BS in Marketing and landed a job in San Francisco that involved extensive travel throughout the United States. She’s always considered San Francisco a US treasure that few other cities worldwide can compare. She’s since married and moved on from her single days, but she still misses the city’s diversity and beauty.
She now lives in Kentucky and ‘retired’ from sales after twenty years to become a stay at home mom when her son kept asking why she had to be gone all the time. She filled her days with volunteering, ending up as a PTA President in her son’s elementary school. When her son moved on to Middle School, boredom set in. She wanted to be around when he came home from school, so she began to write to fill in the time. And she’s been writing ever since.
Promises, Promises and the other stories in the California series are set in the Bay Area and are composites of Sandy’s single life. They’re fun stories of crazy friends who, like single people everywhere, are seeking that someone special to share their lives with among thousands of eligible candidates.
