What do Promises, Promises mean to a once well-known debutante who has fallen to the opposite side of the tracks? Everything!! Kelly Kincaid married the golden boy, Geoff, and now is left behind to try to make amends for major mistakes that he made. Divorced and broke, she must go back to her parents' home, try to set things right and get on with her life. Follow her story as she picks up the pieces and finds, through hard work and love from the right man, life can be filled with lots of promise. Reading this short story was an enjoyable way to spend my afternoon. The author adds just enough spice and snappy dialogue to make it move very smoothly and quickly. The character of Michael Doogan is so genuine, just like the guy next door, it would be hard not to fall for him. From the very beginning, he is right there for Maggie, and that makes him a wonderful man you would want to have around! You can feel the emotion between them coming right off the pages, especially when he is being protective or in that moment when his Christmas spirit kicks in. Come join them in this new novella and see if he can make your heart go pitter patter a little more along with Maggie's. This is a spicy little read that definitely fills that need if you are wanting a quick romantic fix. I would highly recommend this short story to anyone looking for a contemporary read with a little kick to it. Originally posted at The Long and Short of It Romance Reviews
