Promises Linger (Promises #1)
Asa, the hero with the weird name, is soooooo beautiful in...more
Wow! This book was amazing. I can’t believe I waited so long to read it! It was everything I could have hoped for. SUPER steamy and erotic (that one scene in the middle nearly killed me, LOL!), but with a deeply satisfying romance you can really sink your teeth into.
The plot was well rounded, with just enough mystery to keep things interesting without overshadowing the romance.
The sex scenes were appropriately placed and with just the right amount of detail (In other words, a LOT...more
The setting and time in history are irrelevant when you have two characters who are each in awe of the other, and who see themselves as completely unworthy of the other person's trust, loyalty, and affection.
What begins as a 'marriage of convenience' becomes a beautiful and sensuous love affair between Asa and Elizabeth. McCarty's narratives and dialog for sexual scenes is graphic,...more
There were some portions of the writing that did not make sense to me and once again some dialogue was written in a way that it was hard to de...more
While many erotic romance authors seem to fall into the trap of sacrificing story for sex, Sarah McCarty is one of the few who knows how to balance an engaging plot with great character development and scorching hot love scenes to create a beautiful story that's a pleasure to read. It is because of this deft combination that Ms. McCarty has become my current favorite erotic romance author and one of my overall favorite authors too. I had previously read and enjoyed some o...more
Good solid plot, I loved Asa, the main M character ... Elizabeth, the main F character was a BITCH, so argumentative that I kept wishing Asa'd kick her outta the house and send her to the barn till she could be nicer to him!
I understand Elizabeth's major issue with being quite competent to run the ranch and make business decisions (in Wyoming Territory, 1868), but since women were not respected or taken seriously at that time, she was continually frust...more
Elizabeth Coyote needs a husband to save her ranch - well, a new husband that is, since the man she was married to for one day turned out to be a thief and a gambler. At the advice of one of her men, she offers her ranch and her obedience to Asa Mac...more
Fab Book. Book 1 in Promise Series. The best erotic western novel I've ever read. I've reread this series so many times my books are falling apart!! Edited 1/14/12...This series is now available from Sarah McCarty as "indie" books at $5.99 at Amazon and I'm so happy to have them on my Kindle!!! I'm loving me some Asa...again. What a man!!!
Well, I'll try anyway. Is it hot in here?
Asa is one steamy guy. Whoa. He can call me darlin' any time it so moves him. He's one of those bad boys who are soft on the inside and he sure is possessive with what's his.
Elizabeth annoyed me on occasion but not enough to take off a star. I can't put my finger on what it was because I certainly understood alot of her behavior stemme...more

Elizabeth Coyote will lose her ranch and everything she has worked for unless she marries. Asa MacIntyre wants nothing more than land of his own and a lady for his wife. Are they a perfect match or a disaster waiting to happen?
Steamy historical romance (erotica) with an amazingly sexy and stunningly sweet hero and a feisty heroine. The sex scenes are explicit but contribute to the construction of the relationship between the characters and to the overall sto...more
Yes this book is an erotic book, so yes it's full of lots of steamy sex. But boy does Sarah McCarty write it well.
Asa, oh boy, I could go on about this man. He could become one of my favourite hero's of all time. Patient, loving, full of humour and just genuinly a hero, a protector, a wonderful husband. I wasn't expecting that quality of cha...more
Asa and elly do find true love in the end, but the cattle rustling and ranch bankruptcy aren't strong enough to make the book interesting. but if you're looking for some alpha (but sometimes tender) erotica without the dirty feeling you may get from a more contemporary framework, then this would be a good book for you.
don't think I'll bother going fur...more
I've read a few books from this author...I like her characters, her characters like buttsecks. Well, the heroes seem to be enamored of it.
Not my thang.
Elizabeth Coyote is smart, strong, skilled & accomplished but is frightened to show any openly except feminine traits as men tend to ignore, brow beat or whip her into a submissive role.
Asa MacIntyre as a bloodied & beaten child dreamed of marrying a lady, owning a ranch & raising a family. It falls into his lap as he witnesses a woman march into a saloon, hold a gun on her husband to inform him of their annulment.
Clash of two strong personalities with a similar goal bu...more
(view spoiler)[Asa is really a gem and as I saw someone else say, he saved, or rather made this story. I was happy to see a guy being described as tall and lean, rather than tall and steroid-looking for once, and it was awesome. ;-)
Elizabeth, what can I say about you? Yeah, you were kind of annoying. It got better after she actually thought to open up her eyes and see that Asa was a great guy, but before that...if there was an opportunity for her to be stubborn, she did it...more
Bastante tierno. Es una lectura sencilla. Realmente no sentí que fuera una lectura profunda en ningún sentido. Erótica si se quiere por la cantidad de detalles. Pero en cuánto a ellos, solo puedo decir que Elizabeth resultó ser lo que no pensé que sería.
(view spoiler)[Cuando empieza a obsesionarse con comportarse como una dama, pensé que lo hacía para tratar de reprimir su lado "salvaje" pero nunca sale a relucir eso, así que supongo que ella estaba cómoda con su papel de ama de casa que se...more
Really? for the life of me I can't figure out what all the other reviewers got out of this book giving it 4 and 5 star ratings. I had been anticipating for so long getting my hands on a copy and once I did, was so excited to start reading it. Perhaps my expectations were too high because it is after all, Sarah McCarty! and while I've loved her other works, this one fell flat.
2 stars was rather generous and that was only because I really liked Asa. As heroes go, he's a keeper. The premise to...more
Sarah has traveled extensively throughout her life, living in other cultures, sometimes in areas where electricity was a concept awaiting fruition and a book was an extreme luxury. While she could easily adjust to the lack of electricity, living without the comfort of a good book was intolerable...more
