By Trisha A. Howell on August 21, 2003
Format: Paperback
Connie Brockway's first novel, Promise Me Heaven, sizzles with sensuality and is drenched with intelligence, wit and wonderful characters.
Sassy and sensitive Catherine "Cat" Sinclair must marry a wealthy man to save her impoverished family, so she seeks out Thomas Montrose, a notorious rake, to instruct her in the art of seduction.
Once the toast of London, Thomas is now retired to a country estate, and Cat's arrogant assumption that he's over the hill angers him enough to take up the challenge. But as he teaches her everything he knows about the art of seduction, he becomes seduced by her dazzling wit, genuineness and warm heart--not to mention her breathtaking beauty.

Yet his secret past forces him to resist her even as she falls ever deeper in love with him. Through a myriad of plot turns that take the couple from Devon to London to Paris, and pit them against a dazzling array of lively secondary characters, Cat and Thomas develop a deep, complex and passionate relationship, full of witty repartee.

Format: Paperback
Synopsis: Lady Catherine (Cat) Sinclair's family needs money. Her mother has remarried and all but run off, leaving her to care for her siblings and a rundown estate. In desparation, she goes to seek out her step-uncle, Thomas. He was supposed to have been quite a rake in his time at court. Her plan is to have him teach her how to be a seductress so that she might land Giles Strand as a husband.
What follows is pure chemistry....
These characters drew me in and came alive like few have ever done before. I have enjoyed Connie Brockway's other books, but none like this one. It is well worth the read!
PS - the other favorite is Paradise by Judith McNaught.

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much. I love almost everything that Connie Brockway has written...except for Anything for Love, which wasn't all that great IMO. But Promise Me Heaven knocked my socks off. It was NOT your typical regency historical. The chemistry between Cat and Thomas positively sizzles. And as a wonderful surprise we get glimpses of Colonel Henry "Jack" Seward and Giles Strand, those wonderful guys from All Through the Night. It's hard to find, but it's a great read. Another note: Cat and Thomas turn out to be the great-grandparents of Avery Thorne, the hero of My Dearest Enemy. I just love connections!
So, go out and find this book. You won't regret it.

The reader waits until they are approximately 90 per cent thru the story for the romance, not sex, romance, and then basically the book is over. Would have been nice for them to clear up all misunderstandings between each other and speak of loving each other and perhaps getting a glimpse of living together happily maybe sharing a bedroom and spending loving days together and evenings as well as nights. Very disappointed as the potential for a romantic happy ending was just not followed thru.

The first few chapters were a good read, but soon it became long and drawn out. I actually lost interest in the book, had it not been for the fact that I don't like to leave a book unread I would have not finished it. The author rushed the conclusion of the book, which was a shame. After forging through the book, and just when it started to finally come together the author sped through what should have been an enjoyable conclusion. All in all, if more time and effort would have been put forth at the conclusion of the book where it was needed I would have rated it a five star.

This is a re-issue of one of this author's first books so if you get a little deja-vu reading this one, that's the reason why. That said, there is no denying Brockway is a gifted writer. The writing is crisp and humorous, the plot - although filled with many overdone romance elements - moves along briskly and comes to a satisfying conclusion. I found a couple of editing glitches that one would think would have been cleaned up in a reissue, but, whatever - note to author/editor never use the word THEN when you mean to use the word THAN. On my Kindle this book logically ended at the 90% point but the author felt the need to add one more obstacle to true love. That last bit felt forced and false to the Hero and Heroine's characters as they had been developed up to that point. It was still a very enjoyable read.

This is an early Brockway novel, and it shows.

The characters are spritely and sympathetic. The dialogue is intelligent and fun. What other book has a hero suggest in his marriage proposal that they should wed because they could raise spectacular sheep together?

But, there is a central problem with the plot. Cat and Thomas fall in love quickly, and spend the rest of the book with each not realizing the other feels the same way. There are constant scenes in which one has a loving look on his/her face, but the other is glancing elsewhere and misses that look. They were ships that pass in the night, but after 100 or so pages, I began picturing huge freighters in a major shipping lane never realizing there was another ship anywhere in the ocean.

When I finally decided they would not come to any realization about their feelings until about their 10th wedding anniversary, one of them 'fessed up and the book abruptly ended.

I think I may have sprained my hand at one point, trying to reach through the screen of my iPad to shake them.
