A Promise for Tomorrow (Hearthfire Romance) by Michele Paige Holmes + Book Giveaway!



{Book Description}
Scottish Highlands, 1700s:

Barely two weeks have passed since Laird Collin MacDonald first darkened Katherine Mercer’s doorstep and married her. Marriage has hardly been what she expected, given their grueling and adventurous days of travel to the Scottish Highlands. Along with the discovery that Collin’s twin Ian would like to see her dead, Katie must now face her own clan, whose chief wants to kill Collin and take her to wife himself. All because Katie possesses the Campbell gift of sight, passed down through centuries of her ancestors.

With little more than faith in her grandfather’s vision and her unique bond with Collin to guide her, Katie steps bravely into an unknown future, where the glimpses afforded her may bring more danger than direction. When the misuse of her gift takes Collin from her side, she is left alone and vulnerable. Help arrives in the most unexpected form as Ian MacDonald makes good on his threat to attack the Campbells and Katie learns that the bond between brothers and love knows no bounds.


{My Review}
This was a great continuation of the first story. I think I would have been very confused about what was going on and why if I hadn't read the first book; so make sure you read 'Yesterday's Promise' before you read 'A Promise for Tomorrow'. 

This second book has a lot of intrigue as well as romance. I love how Katie and Collin work together to secure their safety and future in Scotland. This book is a true must read for people who love historical romance. I learned many things about Scotland and their traditions/culture that I hadn't heard of before. 

Katie is such a strong character that I loved to read about. She never gives up on her dreams or fighting for what she knows is right and good. There are many obstacles in her way and she has to rely on her own judgment and other things that make her unique gifts valuable. There are happy as well as sad moments in this book and the tension is pretty high throughout. This book sets things up perfectly for the third book which hopefully will answer some questions I had at the end of the book. Overall this was a really good read that kept me up late into the wee hours of the night.




You can get your copy of the first book, Yesterday's Promisehere for only $1.60!

Here's the back copy for 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.
