Julie quickly assesses the situation and proceeds to take care of the situation. When all is settled and his mother is in the hospital, Sam realizes what a jerk he was being to Julie. He asks her on a date to apologize for his rude behavior. It is very clear from their first date that sparks will soon fly, and one of them just may lose their heart to the other.
Anne Rainey is a newer-to-me author. SAM'S PROMISE is only the second novel by Ms. Rainey that I have had the pleasure to read and it rocked my world. The other novel that I read by her is an anthology titled SEDUCE ME, which is also outstanding. SAM'S PROMISE is the first book in her wickedly sexy new BLACKWATER series. It is about the eldest Jennings brother, Sam, finding love where it is most unexpected. SAM'S PROMISE is centered on family and its bonds; something that hits close to home. It really warmed my heart.
