First, I feel the need to preface my review with an explanation of the 5-star rating I've given. I've never given a book that high of a rating, mainly because I am highly suspicious of reviews that gush about a book that turns out to be underwhelming. So I am perfectly willing to admit that maybe I read this book at just the right time or that I was in just the right mood, and just because I think it's worth 5 stars doesn't necessarily mean you will all agree with me.

But you should really agree with me. :) Because it was amazing.

I fell in love with Asa, the quintessential Western alpha male, and with Elizabeth, the tough-yet-soft alpha female.

One thing I especially loved about this story is that, even though it had a little bit of the stereotypical misunderstanding between the two main characters, it didn't fall into ridiculous territory. The male thinks he knows what's right for the female (leaving her), and she doesn't allow him any room to try. And the plot was an actual plot, not just an excuse for sex scenes.

And speaking of sex scenes - this book contains a whole lot of hot, steamy, make-your-toes-curl ones. There's no rough play in it, but the language gets a little dirty. McCarty doesn't refer to his "stiff member" or her "aching valley;" she uses words that Amazon would block my review for. Also, there is some description of anal sex. If any of those are deal breakers for you, you shouldn't get this book.

I loved this book so much, I immediately got the next two in the series (Promises Keep and Promises Prevail).

This is, as I said, an escape read, but so well written, and the characters so well developed that the series is on a higher level as your usual escape reads. Each book provides laughs at the relationship between the strong silent types and the women who are not intimidated one bit by the big, tall, tough men in their lives.

Promises Lingered (Promises Series-3 books)

By: Sarah McCarty

Book ONE, Then Promises Keep, Promises Prevail. This series starts in 1869 Wyoming Territory and is what feels to be a very authentic period piece, like her other series HELLS EIGHT (which got all 5 stars) . I thoroughly enjoy the cowboy way, and the proud ways of the time, This author is a very good writer, and I wasn't disappointed when starting the new series, because in some ways it felt the same, yet a much different story line, you'll still get the steamy sex (yes, Erotic) although you may have to wait a hint longer than you want (worth the wait) I can't wait to dive into 2 & 3.

I do have to say....I would start with the Hell's Eight Series first, it's more of a page turner, this was a comfortable pace!

It was so, so good! Asa (have to admit that I've never heard the name before, but he is so unique that the name is just so fitting) and Elly, were one-hell-of-a-team! In traditional Western style, we had the goodies and the baddies and the not so traditional style of hot, erotic sex! Now for the purists out there, have to say that the dirty sex words that Asa frequently used, most probably didn't exist in those times - personally, I didn't care, it just made the pleasure of reading it so much more! so much so, I've already bought books 2 and 3. Bring it on, I'm ready and waiting!

Sarah McCarty delivers another great read, looking forward to reading the remaining promise series! Loved Sarah's bell's eight series as well. Hope she continues her series books, I for one am a fan!

The book was good but I didn't connect with the characters as easily as in the hells eight series. Overall it was just ok.

I would recommend this book to just about anyone. There is real growth in the characters and I love that he is a kick ass cowboy with a hero's heart of gold.

From the beginning I could not put this down. Elizabeth and As a was perfect for each other. They had the ups and downs but thru love prevailed. I would suggest you all if you like Sarah McCarty books read this one you will not be .disappointed

Asa is such a badass hero. I was transported back in time and I would gladly give up today's modern conveniences if I could stay there with Asa!
