Samantha James rocks!

I read a Promise Given in less that one night. I didn't stop until I put it down!! It was wonderful and I loved the chemistry between Sabrina and Ian! How could she have ever thought that she was in love with another man!! I would definitley reccommend this book for anyone who was looking for a good read.

Keep guessing

I loved A Promise Given! Samatha James makes it so intriging and keeps you guessing about the events that take place. The tables seem to flip so many times that you have to continue reading just to know who is going to uncover their deep, dark secret. When Margaret isn't found on the day before her wedding to Ian, Sabrina almost seems terrified. She seems more so, however when Ian tharts her plans to marry Jamie. I thought for sure she was going to die. However, her fathers cruelty makes her leave quickly. I just couldn't believe her father! After Margaret dies, he doesn't even care about Sabrina. He has this attitude like good ridance when Sabrina leaves. Ian, at some times, is more like the villian rather than the hero, but when someone starts threating Sabrina's life, he becomes the hero, ready to vanquish any demons who try to destroy all that he holds dear.The tables do turn at the end when someone from Sabrina's past shows up and wants to destroy Sabrina's life in Scotland. As well as someone from Ian's life ready to help destroy everything that Ian tried to keep a secret, only to find out that he had dealings with Ian's secret.Wow! So much happens that you can't possibly tell one person about everything, espcicially when Samatha James keeps you guessing about everything and how corupt some people are.

A story of passion, mystery and tenderness.

Sabrina and Ian have known each other since they were children, but Ian goes away for several years, and Sabrina is left feeling bitter because she believes he broke a promise to her. Ian is betrothed to her older sister Margaret, but when she disappears, he takes Sabrina as his bride. Needless to say, she is unhappy about this, but finds herself attracted to him anyway. I liked both of the characters. Ian is a hard man because of the battles he's been in and because of the mystery surrounding his father's death. Sabrina is a strong-willed woman who speaks her mind, something a woman of her time was not supposed to be. Their clashing personalities made for good reading. This is a story I'd read over and over again.

Captivating and sweet

This is the first book I've read that is by Miss James. It is splendid! The hero is a hard man on the outside but a serious sweetie inside. I like the way he was protective of the heroine. The heroine even though was warned to stay away from the hero, she refused to and stood by her man realizing she would always love him.

The prose is brilliant, the characrerizations sheer genius

In 1306, Scottish clan chieftain, Ian MacGregor, heads to the lowlands to claim his bride, Margaret Kincaid, who he has been betrothed to since childhood. However, upon arriving at Dunleavy Keep, Ian finds himself attracted to Margaret's younger sister Sabrina. In spite of her efforts to be loyal to her sibling, Sabrina shares the attraction. Margaret suddenly vanishes, leaving the way open for Ian to claim Sabrina as his bride price. Though she begins to fall in love with Ian, Sabrina wonders if he is behind the mysterious disappearance of her sister. When the couple arrives at his castle, she hears rumors about the strange deaths of his father and stepmother. If she does not look inside the soul of the man offering his love to her, she will destroy their future happiness due to a few nasty murmerings by person or persons unknown. A PROMSIE GIVEN is a beautifully written Medieval romance that will thrill fans of the sub-genre as well as historical romance readers in general. The mystery adds immensely to the fast-paced story line and the growing love between the lead protagonists serves as a brilliantly counterpoint to a terrific tale. Samantha James knows romance and with this novel she gives plenty of it to her audience. Harriet Klausner
