Shy and self-doubting, Alexandra doesn’t ask much of life. She exists quietly in a small seaside village in Wales, working in the local library and keeping company solely with ‘Roger,’ her vibrator. When Roger breaks down, she must go to the city to seek out his replacement.
Alex’s visit goes spectacularly awry when she stumbles into the wrong hotel room, where she enjoys a blissful interlude with the room’s rightful occupant, Solomon, who she initially mistakes for a vivid dream. Sol’s skills quickly render Roger obsolete, but Alex isn’t about to let a man—not even one as gorgeous as Sol—get under her skin. Relationships are not for the likes of her.
Sol, a notorious playboy and multimillionaire hotelier, isn’t about to let her go so easily—not until he’s had his fill of her. Posing as a simple carpenter, he rents the house next to Alex in Brindley Bay. His plan is to conquer her quickly and return to his real life in a week or so. But Alex is nothing like his other women. For a start, she’s not interested in money. More than that, serious money makes her extremely uncomfortable. And she values honesty above all else. Before he knows it, Sol has promised to love her forever—a promise he fully intends to keep.
But what will Alex do when she inevitably uncovers the elaborate skein of lies he has spun, simply to bed her?
“I actually love writing about women with problems, whether it’s looks, weight or other issues. I like to fetch realism into romance, in that not all guys fall for the drop dead gorgeous female. Personality is what it’s all about, along with the obvious connection—the sexual link. Instead of looks, I like to focus on the flaws we all which that we can all connect to. That we can fix, mend and move on. And Promises delivers all of this and more. At least I like to think so.”
— Author’s Note
Praise for PROMISES
“I really enjoyed PROMISES, by Ellen March. Although both main characters had explosive personalities, and got angry quickly, they were also funny and well written into the story line. Ellen March is a new author for me. I really enjoyed her writing style and the quirkiness of her characters. Ellen March is certainly an author whom I will be checking out other titles from.” Read more ….

Either they are screwing each other senseless, or close to throttling each other out of anger. The passion is all consuming, making this book a page turner! This book will not disappoint fans of erotic romance!” Read more ….
