Two unforgiving lovers reunite for the sake of their child in this fiery contemporary romance from Joan Johnston, the New York Times bestselling author of Surrender.
Facing the unexpected consequences of a life-altering night of passion with a cowboy she met in a Jackson Hole bar, and with her life committed to protecting endangered species, Victoria Grayhawk does what she believes is the right thing. She hunts down the cowboy, seeking his agreement that their baby should be adopted by a loving family.
Montana rancher Ryan Sullivan has no intention of giving away his own flesh and blood, and takes their son to raise himself. When Vick realizes what a horrible mistake she’s made, and wants back into their child’s life, Rye remains inflexible—because once trust is lost there are no second chances—until an attack by one of the grizzlies Vick has spent her life protecting changes everything and Rye learns that sometimes love can heal all wounds.
Sullivan’s Promise, a second chance contemporary romance tells the story of Victoria “Vick” Grayhawk, the youngest of the King’s Brats. Years ago, she made a huge mistake giving up her son Cody. Now, she wants him back. First, she must persuade Ryan Sullivan, who is determined to keep Vick at arm’s length, that leaving their son behind was something she regrets.
In the foregone conclusion to the Bitter Creek series written by Joan Johnston. Just wasn’t what I hoped for. The story dragged, and the chemistry between Ryan and Vick just wasn’t there. I was more interested in the wrapping up of Matt and Jennie storyline than the two main characters. Being a mother myself, I just couldn’t see how Vick could give birth and then hand her child over. Then five years later, after the baby can almost take care of himself, she regrets giving up that child. I just didn’t by it. I think this may be the reason I find this story rates only 3/5 stars.
