It is rumored that there are no secrets in a small town, but Sage Carrigan has managed to keep two undisclosed confessions to herself.  Dawson O’Dell is one of them.  Five years ago Sage met Dawson on the rodeo circuit and fell in love with him, but to her horror she was awakened one morning in Dawson’s bed by a women wielding a shotgun, claiming to be Dawson’s wife.  Thank goodness, she escaped unscathed.

Sage has been living a quiet and peaceful life in Marietta, Montana, where she owns a chocolate shop.  When Dawson appears in her store one day wanting to make amends, Sage isn’t at all happy to see him.  Dawson would like a chance to explain what went wrong five years ago, but Sage isn’t eager to hear his explanation, yet she realizes that Dawson can still make her heart go pitter-patter.

When Dawson decides to settle down in Marietta with his daughter, he and Sage keep running into one another.  Dawson would like nothing more than to make Sage a permanent part of his life as well, but it is going to take a lot of convincing on his part for Sage to find forgiveness in her heart.  Does this couple stand a chance at happily- ever-after?

It is easy to empathize with Sage as she goes through a full spectrum of emotions when she sees Dawson in her chocolate shop.  Forgiveness doesn’t come easy for her, and she makes Dawson work  hard to prove that he is worthy of her attention.  I enjoyed meeting all of Sage’s sisters and I hope to see more of them in future writings.

I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Dawson at first, but after he gives Sage an explanation of why he hid his marriage from her, I decided he wasn’t a bad guy.  I loved the way that Dawson interacted with his mother and daughter and the way that he was so willing to raise his daughter on his own.

Promise Me, Cowboy is a great addition to the COPPER MOUNTAIN RODEO series.  I loved visiting with characters from the previous novellas and I can’t wait to meet some new ones in upcoming stories.  C.J. Carmichael has done an outstanding job of creating characters that you can relate to and fall in love with.  I highly recommend that you download this amazing tale today!
