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. Harriet Klausner

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

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.

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.

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.

What a delightful historical romance set in England 1792. This is a Weston novel. This book is well written with detail and depth. The characters are charming, strong, emotional and will pull you into the story. It has sweet sensuality, romance,bitterness, forgiveness, mystery, and is an emotional love story.The heroine has been in love with the hero since the first time she saw him, when they where only children. The hero is determined never to marry, his father died shortly after his mother died in childbirth. He was sent to live with his grandfather who was not so nice. As fate would have it, he ends up marrying and learns a lesson in true love. It is a must read. It is fast paced, page turning story from the first page to the last. I would highly recommend this book.
