Overview

Veiled Promises by Tracy MacNish

Not since Kathleen E. Woodiwiss's masterful The Flame and the Flower has a romance dared to delve so deeply into a woman's vulnerability--and the healing power of love. . .

Dashing Irish sea captain Patrick Mullen knows women like he knows the sea, but he is completely unprepared for the sight of lovely Camille Bradburn, the only daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Eton. Cultured, wealthy, innocent, and impossibly beautiful, she is nothing he could ever hope to have, and everything he has ever desired. . .

Raised with unimaginable wealth and a servant for every task, Camille seems to live a fairy tale life that is the envy of every girl in England. But her privilege comes with a terrible, secret price. And when she spies Patrick beneath her balcony, she understands for the first time that freedom and passion may be possible after all. . .

Their love is swift and soul-deep but also exceedingly dangerous, for others would do anything to keep them apart. But Camille won't be taken without a fight, not when she stands to lose a love worth more than all her family's riches. . .

Situations were awful, heroine was spineless...SPOILER ALERT ...I can't enjoy a book where the heroine gets raped and miscarries.

Tracy MacNish work it's absolutely stunning! Altough this book it's somewhat dark it resembles a lot of what that era was like and she makes the hero appear truly human no some super-hero that can save you like he has super powers! But someone that loves you enough to keep fighting for you till the end no matter what. I read her seccond book firts (Veiled Desires) and I was totally in love by the way she writes and how the story develops after reading this one, I will definitely be looking for her novels without reading what says on the back of the cover.

Tracy MacNish is a name to remember for future historical romance reads. This novel has everything a good old fashion historical romance needs. The heroine & hero are strong characters with complex circumstances and mean villians that weave into their relationship. You can't put the book down. You will have a sleepless night, so make sure you have time for this one. It is worth making the time for. So bring out the tea, put the kids to bed, and curl up with this enjoyable historical romance. What a thrill to have a new writer give us what romance fans need. A great story to not only take us back in time, but away from the realities of the modern stressful life. It a simple formula, but has worked for generations - boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl. If you don't like this one, then you just don't like the real romance genre. I am reminded of Bertrice Small, Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, and even Danelle Harmon comes to mind.

I just loved this book. It's different, so be warned, because it doesn't follow the rules of other romance novels, but that's why I loved it. It's fresh and new and unique, and for those of you looking for a story that hasn't been told a million times before, you need to read this book!!!!

Terribly boring and overly dramatic from cover to cover. Worst book I've read in a really, really long time. Will never read this author again.

A story that brings historical romance to a whole new level of emotion. I have never enjoyed a story more. I usually do not read new authors but this book was a find of a lifetime. I cannot wait to read her next.
