Rex wants Jade to have a perfect wedding. She has everything planned. Then a necklace goes lost and everything starts to go wrong. Her father gets sick. The horse is sick. Rex wants her to postpone the wedding. Can she find the necklace before anything else bad happens? Will she have to postpone the wedding? Will she even have a wedding?

I highly recommend this book.
Promise My Love is a dream come through for fans of the The Bradens. Melissa Foster uses this novella to bring us back to the Braden ranch in Colorado and check in with the entire Braden clan. As Rex and Jade are preparing for their wedding, we get a wonderful opportunity to check in with recent births and pregnancies, and all of the developments of the Braden family members and the loves of their lives. Despite the shorter length than a typical Melissa Foster novel, the author manages to infuse the entire gamut of emotions: fear, happiness, love, anxiety... you name it, you experience it in this novella. The author even gives us an opportunity to see the wonderful relationship between horses and people as the family deals with a potential illness in their beloved Hope, their mother's horse who spends most of the book not feeling well. The diagnosis and treatment are a wonderful testament to the love that this family has for each other and the horse that they know helps sustain their father. All in all, a wonderful catch up with the Bradens. Rex is still a fantastic hero and, as expected, comes up with a creative solution to their wedding challenge that creates a wonderfully-romatic end, or is it a beginning, to their love story. And his emotional outburst at the wedding - classic!
If you are a fan and follower of Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom series, here is a short and sweet story to wrap up the story between Sexy-Rexy and Jade. After four years of waiting, the wedding date is finally approaching. But just at the last minute, things start to go wrong, some family members falling ill, and Rex and Jade argue if the wedding should be postponed. Lovely visit with the first Braden's, where the whole family gathers together to celebrate love, family, and next generation of Braden's. This is a book #39 in the series, so I would not start to read the series from here, but if you want to learn more about this family alone, Lovers at Heart would be the place to start. ~ Three Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
What a great book and idea to give us, the fans and readers of the Braden series, by catching us up on what is going on in each of the Weston, CO bunch. This installment is an easy read, but is packed full of LIFE and adventure with each Braden and where they are now 4 years later as Rex and Jade get married. If you love the Braden's, you will love this short s story!!
This novella took me approximately one hour to read--I read it straight through immediately drawn into the drama that was Rex and Jade's (from Destined for Love) impending nuptials. I mean really, these were the two who loved each other forever but because of a feud between their fathers--well--until they finally stood up and fought those stubborn old men! It is now 4 years later and they have decided it is time to start a family--but the Braden men believe in "first comes love, then comes marriage-THEN comes those baby carriages"! So the wedding is being planned and as in life-anything and everything that could go wrong did including Jade misplacing the necklace that brought them together in the first place! Will everything work out as planned? If you haven't read Destined for Love then I suggest you read it first although it can be read as a stand alone.
I love that Melissa has given us this follow up novella to Destined for Love. Rex and Jade are wonderful couple that made it through such a huge obstacle to be together. It is so great to be able to read about their wedding finally. All is right in the world now. This may be a novella, but Melissa manages to pack so much into this story. We even get to learn more about some of the other Bradens.
