A Heart's Promise


Emmie makes a promise to her friend that, if fulfilled, could mean the end to her dreams of a future with Isaac.

Emmie Croftner let Isaac Liddle go to avoid telling him about her past. But Isaac remains determined to win Emmie's heart and hand. Though Emmie resolves to keep her heart in check, it hurts when she sees that another woman has set
her bonnet for Isaac.

Then Emmie's dear friend extracts a costly promise: if anything happens to her in childbirth, Emmie will marry her widower and raise the baby herself. And it seems Emmie may have to fulfill that promise. But can she live happily without Isaac?

My Review:

This is the fifth in a six-part serial style release. Journey of the Heart is a reissue of the author's first series, now out of print. Because it wouldn't make sense to read only one book, I'm waiting until the entire series is published (August) when I will do a giveaway of all six books.

 In A Heart's Promise, Emmie's romance with Isaac heats up but so does tension with the resurgence of the series' notorious villains. This installment is about the relationships between the women at the fort and feels more like a set up for the concluding book. There is very little action to move the plot along and the read was over before I was ready for it to be. A romantic cliffhanger ending promises much angst in the concluding chapter of Journey of the Heart series coming out in August.

My thanks to the publisher and Litfuse publicity for providing me with a copy of this book.
