Wyoming Territory 1869:

Being kidnapped into a bordello has a way of changing a woman’s focus. On the day Mara Kincaid escapes the Pleasure Emporium, she vows to start living for herself. Rebuilding her life isn’t easy as the town isn’t fond of reformed fallen doves, but she’s a Kincaid and Kincaids are known for their stubbornness. She’s successful right up until the notorious ex-marshal Cougar McKinnley comes into town.

As big as a mountain, dark as sin, and wearing a reputation as deadly as the knife strapped to his thigh, McKinnley is a man who knows what he wants. By rights, she should be shaking in her shoes when he approaches her, but when the powerful half-breed turns his dark gold eyes on her, it isn’t fear that has Mara trembling, but rather an overwhelming desire to be the kind of woman Cougar needs to satisfy his deepest desires.


"Promises Keep starts with an erotic bang and the pace doesn’t stop till the very last page. ... Simply put, I found Promises Keep to be brilliant, perfect in content, plot, characterization, style, pace and eroticism. ...The western stereotypes are dispelled in this fantastic book of wonderfully drawn, realistic, sympathetic and complex characters and situations. ...Promises Keep will astound you and linger in your memory long after you put it down." —Aggie Tsirikas

"Ms. McCarty has created a wonderful pair in Mara, with her fragile looks, but steely determination, and Cougar, the oh, so tender tough guy (ultra alpha alert here!), who captures her heart. Mmmmm. ... if you thought that Asa from Promises Linger was hot, just wait to you meet Cougar. He’ll melt the keys right off your computer and reduce you to a puddle of longing." —Dawn

"Ms. McCarty is a genius; she writes with such emotional depth that I felt every emotion Cougar and Mara had." —Joy

RECOMMENDED READ! -Fallen Angel Reviews
"Sarah McCarty’s Promises Keep is one of the hottest, toe curling reads this reviewer has seen yet. ...Cougar simmers off the very pages and is a character that stays with the reader not only day and night during the read, but afterwards he remains almost an archetype of a man many women can only dream of meeting. .. Mara’s character is fabulously written. Her emotional growth through the story is absorbing as she moves from a frightened waif-like young woman to one that is strong, determined and self-assured.... Promises Keep is a mesmerizing and enthralling read that will leave the reader wanting more." —Regan

"The kind of hero every woman dreams of, Cougar is all male and wicked in the bedroom. The fact that the author, Sarah McCarty, can take the worst circumstance a man and a women could start of with, and turn it into a moving love story shows McCarty’s talent.. She is able to gradually build the sexual tension between Cougar and Mara into a believable culmination of lovemaking. And the ending made me cry! Sweet and hot, PROMISES KEEP delivers everything!" —Jennifer

"Sarah McCarty has once again written an amazing and thoroughly engaging book in PROMISES KEEP... Ms. McCarty's vivid, realistic western setting and strong, unique characters bring the story to life, while also weaving together action, passion, and basic human nature... The characters are the best part of this book, and many will become favorites ... PROMISES KEEP more than earns its E-rotic rating with its intense sexuality... PROMISES KEEP is a great read that I recommend to fans of westerns and good, strong, fast-paced romance." —Enyan Adrian
