Er farm Will Colt stand by and let Victoria marry Euan before he proves his guilt Across the Table in his best friend s deathA creative story PROMISES KEPTncludes a mail order husband ranchers struggling to keep their animals fed and watered farmers hoping to retain their land soiled doves causing trouble a saloon overflowing with whiskey gambling and gun fights retain their land soiled doves causing trouble a saloon overflowing with whiskey gambling and gun fights always Accidental Commando (Eagle Squadron in that order cattle rustling plus gunslingers on both sides determined to prove their prowessI m particularly fond of mail order bride stories and westerns so I especially enjoyed the several twistsn this one In addition to the future husband winding up dead Victoria s running from something but we re not sure what There s also the mystery of the twin boys she s protecting as well as the past that haunts herI enjoyed this story but there were a few things that felt awkward There seemed to be too many characters playing the same type of roles when they could have been combined to make the story less confusing such as two soiled doves causing the same trouble or two gunslingers as villains Also I didn t realize this book was nspirational until toward the end Without any warning the faith message came Accidental Commando into play andt felt out of place I enjoy nspirational stories with a faith message but there s usually some hint earlier n the novel that The Adventurer's Bride it s headingn that direction The violent nature of the God fearing hero didn t always make sense How can he attend Sunday services read the Bible and think about killing people consistently and still be a viable believer I get Moto ondoso stabile e altri racconti it thatt s the West All About Me in a really rough time and everyone has to defend themselves but Colt seemed a little blood thirsty and out for revenge for someone trying to convince Victoria to reconnect with her faith Had he been struggling with his faith andt was Victoria doing the convincing Son of the Sheriff (Delta Justice, it would have been less of a red flagThere was good adventuren this story and some endearing characters Victoria s boys are cute and they soften Colt s rough nature The dog was a good addition but there was a situation with him that made me wonder about ts nclusion Victoria Son of the Sheriff is a brave woman restarting her lifen a rough territory especially with the boys and as a single source of ncome for their survival liked her choice of friends survival I liked her choice of friends ability to stand up for herself when necessary Even though Victoria was stereotypically gorgeous n a territory full of men her good heart and nnocence was charming I liked that her cooking was a big attraction as well and that the book didn t rely on just her beauty for all the men tripping all over themselves around herAlthough I m looking forward to books n this series I felt that PROMISES KEPT seemed rushed at the end Adding characters toward the end makes sense for the next book but I would have preferred to get to know them a bit at the beginning It just seemed rushed and overly convenient as a set up by adding them at the end making the flow a bit choppy and not as natural as I expected from the majority of the book The last few chapters took away from the main characters romance so maybe the book should have been a bit longer to compensate for the new ntroductionsEven though I found some The Anarchist Roots of Geography: Toward Spatial Emancipation inconsistencies they were never enough to stop me from reading The flavor of the west pulls the story forward with promise of resolution A good beginning to a western historical series with potential PROMISES KEPT sets the stage for book two FINDING PROMISE Look for LAST PROMISE due to release April 26 2016 Westernnspirational fans will enjoy Scarlett Dunn s creative styleReview by Dorine courtesy of Romance Junkies and The Zest uest Print ARC provided by the publisher Scarlett Dunn kept the events wanting you to read until you realize you have read the entire book before you know tWha.
