Book Description

Demon Dolan Ciar exists on three simple words: desire, denial, and destruction. Every four years, he is allowed one night of earthly passion to punish a deserving female. By the time he is finished, his victims are left as willing receptacles for demons yet to come.

Since she was four, a demon has been the only constant in Leora Desmond's life. He saved her life, and then guided her, teaching her how to seize control, to never give up, and to take whatever she wanted. At twenty-four, her self-centered existence is focused on one thing. She wants Dolan, and she won't be dissuaded.

A mistake brought Dolan to Leora. A promise bound him to her. Returning once again to ask for his freedom, he is faced with Leora demanding to be his next conquest. The ultimate retribution would be to take from her the ultimate symbol of her selfishness.

Now, Dolan must decide if he can doom her to life in living hell or face his own set of unearthly consequences, while Leora must choose between her pleasure and her heart.

The Promise blurs the line between good and evil, desire and love, and promises and commitment.

My Review

The Promise is a fast read that I accomplished in a few hours that I thoroughly enjoyed!! Unlike other books of Kim’s that I have read, this has a bit of a Paranormal element in it and I found it to be an captivating read.

Each chapter is titled and set 4 years apart. The first chapter is of their initial meet and how Dolan made the Promise to return to see Leona every four years that he returns to earth. He is able to see the drastic changes in Leona each time he returns and how she grows into a beautiful woman.

I enjoyed the journey that the two characters had. How two different beings were able to find one constant every four years that slowly bought them together. When they get together, as it is inevitable that they will, they come together with a BANG!! And boy was it Hawt and steamy!! Another fabulous read Kim!!

I received a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
