Overview

Stolen Promise by Lisa Marie Wilkinson

Cultures clash and passions collide when a stunning deathbed confession by his mother sends Evan Dark, the heir to a sprawling South Carolina plantation, to England in search of information about the father he never knew. Evan, a Southern gentleman who has just discovered his Gypsy heritage, cannot resist coming to the aid of a spirited young Gypsy woman, Jade of the Lowara tribe, who has fled her campsite after learning she is betrothed to a brutal clansman. Jade's father, seeing an opportunity to bring wealth to his clan through marriage, pegs Evan as Jade's bridegroom. Coerced into marrying Jade, Evan intends to abandon his Gypsy bride and return to South Carolina, where his own fiancée awaits him, unaware that she has been unfaithful with his half brother and that the two are plotting to challenge Evan’s status as heir. When loyalties divide and fortunes are at risk, will Jade's love be enough?

I picked up STOLEN PROMISES yesterday morning and finished it by Midnight. I thoroughly enjoyed the H/h, Evan and Jade. There was humor with good banter between Evan and Jade. There is also a secondary romance but it did not take away from the main story. It just added to it. There were times when Evan's brother Colin had me laughing so hard. If you are looking for a sweet, sensual read with some humor and drama, be sure to pick up STOLEN PROMISES! Lisa, keep writing the great historical romances!

I have never read a historical romance with gypsies and never new much of their culture. This is a wonderful story. The flow is superb and keeps you waiting for the next event. I hope the story of Patrick and Liberina will be written.

Stolen Promise by Lisa Marie Wilkinson is one romance book that will hold its promise of everything we have come to expect from a historical romance novel. I really don't think I've read a book about Gypsies before but I must say that this is a must have read. Absolutely scrumptious! Jade is not only a Gypsy, but like most of her people she is astoundingly beautiful. Green eyes that draw you into their depths with raven hair that has a halo of blueish to it to make it shine like spun silk. She wears very colorful clothing that only accentuates her lithe frame. She is spirited and head strong which is frowned upon amongst her people and her father believes what she needs is a husband with a strong hand to hold her in place. Evan is a half breed and doesn't exactly fit in on either side of his families nationalities. Not finding out about his heritage until he is a grown man, he goes in search of a people that very well might not accept him because of who he is. Dimitri is a very handsome Gypsy male but with a personality that brings out brutal abuse and a jealousy that does not end, it takes him to places he never thought he would have to go to get the one woman who was promised to him as a child to be his bride. He's one of those people you just absolutely have to hate, no ands, ifs or buts. Our author has given us a action packed, emotional powerhouse that will keep you turning pages as quickly as possible from beginning to end. A story of greed, hate, deception, love, trust and misunderstandings that will show us that making up is hard to do but the benefits are so worth it in the end. I totally adored this book and I do hope you do also.
