More Than a Promise

GIVEAWAY

HERNE, RUTH LOGAN
MORE THAN A PROMISE

Widower Matt Wilmot is struggling to raise three rambunctious sons all on his own.  The boys' antics have earned them a reputation throughout the small town of Cedar Mills. Enter Matt's new neighbor, Elle Drake. She's made a successful career for herself, but after a disastrously public break-up with her millionaire ex-husband, she's back in Cedar Mills to lick her wounds. When one of Matt's boys causes damage in Elle's yard, her commonsense approach forces the boy to take responsibility for his actions and gives Matt a wakeup call he desperately needs.

But everything changes one day when Elle overhears the boys' grandmother, a powerful local judge, threatening a custody battle to take the boys. With a spur-of-the-moment reaction, Elle pretends to be Matt's fiancĂ©e in order to defuse the situation. When Matt decides it's a brilliant plan and kisses her to seal the deal, Elle knows he's crazy. But he's also sweet, funny, engaging, sexy and strong...which isn't a bad thing!

My Review:

Rollicking fun, achingly sweet and peppered with large doses of love and laughter. Honestly, those Wilmot boys are a hoot! Had my hair standing on end a time or two and makes me glad I had a daughter. It's easy to see why Matt is in over his head where those three 'hooligans' are concerned. All male, conflicted by the absence of a mother and the strained relationship between their dad and their grandmother these perceptive little guys are left to their own devices way too often. With disastrous (and amusing) results.

And then there's new neighbour, Elle. A practical woman of strong opinion and love for children including the scallywags living next door. The way she woos them one at a time until she has even their father under her spell...blissful sigh...utterly sublime.

Secondary characters that make you cheer and jeer bring Cedar Mills to life and make things all the more interesting for Elle and Matt. The kind of romance that creeps up on you unawares and turns into something deep and abiding. Herne captures the heart and soul of family in all it's agony and glory.
