"McCarty is a sparse, minimalistic writer, with a great ear for dialogue. She's a passionate observer of history, and manages to deftly and accurately weave her spicy stories through with important facts and issues of the epoch she invokes. She's also good at capturing that intangible magnetism surrounding dangerous, rugged men... I'm hooked."—USA Today
"If you like your historicals packed with emotion, excitement and heat, you can never go wrong with a book by Sarah McCarty."—Romance Junkies
"It's so great to see that Ms. McCarty is able to truly take these eight men and give them such vastly different stories and vastly different heroines, all of whom allow us to see different aspects of what life was really like for Western Frontier women, be it good, horrific, or simply unfortunate."—Romance Books Forum
"What really sets McCarty's stories apart from simple erotica is the complexity of her characters and conflicts... Definitely spicy, but a great love story, too." —RT Book Reviews
"Readers who enjoy erotic romance but haven't found an author who can combine it with a historical setting may discover a new auto-buy author...I have." —All About Romance

Jackson Montgomery is a true hero to die for. He stumbles upon Mimi Banfield who has fallen into an empty well housing a bunch of rattlers. Three young children, while trying to send her some light, accidentally drop the lantern and it shatters. This is the scene Jackson encounters on his way home. While trying a daring rescue of Mimi, he is bitten twice by a rattler. This is the backdrop of the harrowing journey of Jackson, Mimi and the three children. Also, it was wonderful to see heroes from previous books make meaningful appearances. IMHO, this is a not-to-be-missed story.
This book is very character-driven. There is much more story and less sex (as I recall) than was in the 4 books in the series that were originally published by Ellora's Cave. Don't get me wrong; the previous books in the Promises series had great, engaging stories that were also character-driven; however, based solely on my recollection after all these years, is that those books had much more sexual content that can be characterized as erotic.
There is something very praiseworthy about a greatly penned cowboy novel set in the 1800's which focuses on the challenges facing women and children during that era. I consider this novel to be firmly counted among those tomes.
I've been waiting for what seems like forever for Jackson's story. And its a good story, in the way of an old-fashioned romance in a western setting. The plot is a good one, the characters all likeable and substantive, and the tie-ins to the earlier books are there. The measure of this man is quite in keeping with the men of the preceding books, there is an underlying strength to the female lead and entertaining scenarios in the life they are making together.
Its missing a bit of the heat of the earlier books, and in and of itself, thats not a bad thing. But there was a level of expectation not met. Its not a disappointment in any way, just not what I was expecting...and thats tough to rate.
I do hope Elijah gets his book now. Its always the quiet ones...
