Book CoverPromises Prevail is the third in the Promises series and I have to say I didn’t like it near as much as the first one.

Promises Linger is the first and Promises Keep is the second. They are western erotica or erotica in a western setting, however you want to explain that.

Clint McKinnely and Jenna Hennessy have both made appearances in the other books and really I cared more about them then. I am not sure what it was, the plot was out there, but it is erotica so that is expected. I think Jenna was just ‘too’ TSTL. I mean she knew Clint cared for her, so I had a hard time understanding why she didn’t tell him about the bad man who had returned to town.
Book CoverShe was presented as a woman who loved her children, so to put them at risk by not telling him, seemed wrong. And the ‘meeting’ of women to decide how to fix her marriage and make Clint admit to loving her was painful. I have to admit I skimmed over most of that.

I will read the next in the series but if it is an ‘eh read’ like this one, it will be my last.

Sarah McCarty really is a great writer and can do much better. Promises Linger is a great book if you are looking for an Ellora’s Cave to try. I would recommend reading that one over this one.
