New from Michele Paige Holmes, Amazon’s bestselling historical romance author and Whitney Award Winner, comes the Hearthfire Historical Romance, YESTERDAY’S PROMISE.
In the Scottish Highlands, 1761:
Nineteen-year-old artist Katherine Mercer dreams of selling her paintings to help support her struggling family. Before she has the opportunity, Katherine learns she is to be sold—or practically so—given in marriage to a lord she has never met or even heard of. In return, a much-needed settlement will be made upon her mother.
Katherine’s situation goes from frightening to surreal when her husband-to-be Laird Collin MacDonald arrives with an entourage of men, each heavily armed and speaking with a thick brogue. As if leaving all she knows behind and traveling to another country with strangers isn’t bad enough, Katherine soon discovers a Scottish heritage she knew nothing of, a brother-in-law who wants her dead, and far more at stake with her paintings than she had ever imagined. Forced to turn to her reclusive husband for answers, comfort, and even her very survival, Katherine begins to unravel the mysteries of her past and what it is to love and be loved.
Oh. Oy. I wasn't quite ready to stop reading this story. But I had to. Because it stopped and there was no more left to read. <sigh>
I was so caught up in this book. I was pulled right into the story, invested in the characters and my heart was bursting! Then it ended and I am a bit sad. I find I am quite reluctant to move on to another book. Surely reading one book while thinking of another is a bit like cheating, right? Book cheating. Is that a thing? I feel like it is now. Because I tried to read another book and that's what it felt like. I'm still wallowing in Scotland and I'm not ready to leave just yet. I hope I get over it soon.
The next book? Fall. Not too far away, but still. When you are wallowing, it seems like forever away.
So until book two. . . Katie and Collin, I will dream of you. In Scotland. <grand lovey sigh>
