I freaking love this series. It just keeps getting better and better.

As she has a knack for doing - Maegan Beaumont sucked me into the third installment of her Sabrina Vaughn series straight away and I basically didn't move until I'd devoured it!

All of my favorites characters are back to help - and sometimes hinder - Sabrina and Michael as they again face off against a common enemy. The perfect blend of suspense, mystery, romance and thrilling action came together in Promises to Keep, taking me on an exhilarating ride that had me hanging on to my nerves by a thre

Maegan Beaumont

Easy reading thriller

It is sometimes difficult to pinpoint which ingredients make for a good thriller. Certainly there has to be an interesting plot which develops smoothly. The characters also need to be well formed and three dimensional and finally it is important that the reader becomes involved, is drawn into the story and cares about what happens to the protagonists.

This novel succeeds reasonably well in the first two areas but fails in the third

There were so many bad guys in this story that you just couldn't keep up with them. Nor could you tell who was working for whom. I think that was the best part about the whole book. Was Michael hired for a good ending or a bad ending? And why was Sabrina brought into all of this? Just exactly who is the puppet master? This book had my flying through the action packed pages trying to figure out who was behind the abduction of children. Sick subject, yes, but unfortunately it does happen.

I have not read the first two books in the series, but I followed along pretty well. I wish I had read them, but it was interesting coming in without knowing the backstory. The story is good, though. Michael is an assassin and he's in so deep he knows he can never get out. He wants nothing more than to be with the woman he loves, but he has to stay away from her for her safety. Sabrina is a police officer who can take care of herself. I thought the characters were interesting and the story kept ...more

Just too unbelievable... the characters are not realistic at all to me. I DO like fantasy books - but this is supposed to be a realistic book.
But everyone else seems to really enjoy it - so it must just be "me" :)
If you like characters who face death over and over again - can out maneuver everyone - killing multiple bad guys at a time... then this is the book for you

Another excellent book in series. This is fast becoming one of my favorites. May be a little graphic for some. 4 stars

The story line for this book is interesting. It had so much potential however, I can’t help but give it two starts because in my eyes it fell very short of that. The storyline just kept dragging along and I read one person say that they really didn’t even care about the characters and I felt the same way. Another main reason I didn’t like this book is that it’s very moody. The main characters are very hot then cold... it just gets exhausting. I didn’t even finish it. I got maybe 65% done with it ...more

Love love love this series! You must read book 1 and book 2 before this one or you won't understand the dynamics. Lots of action! ...more

I didn’t LOVE this as much as the first two but I thought the story moved and made sense within the saga. Excited for the next one but sad that I think it ends the series.

A thrilling nail biting novel

This boom kept me on the edge of my seat, basically chewing of my fingers. I loved every second of it and i dont want it to EVER END!!

I loved the first one, "Carved in Darkness" from 2013 and this one was equally good although this 2015 book says it is #3 and "Sacrificial Muse" from 2014 is #2.

Awesome assassin, Michael O'Shea has been trying his best to keep his secret love, policewoman Sabrina Vaughn, out of his cold-blooded employer's hands and when he finds out that his friend, partner and boss's son, Ben Shaw, handed her over to his sociopath father to be one of his sleeper agents, Michael is really pissed.

4/5 (Very Good)
*I received a copy of this book from Book Chatter Cath in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

Overall, this was a good story. It was thrilling and kept you guessing at every turn. It was one of those stories that left you on the edge of your seat, thinking you knew what was going to happen, when you really had no clue. There were an insane amount of details that the author did a great job of providing, making the story

Michael is an assassin and his next job is finding a missing child. He has enemies on every side and nobody he can trust. He can't even trust himself. He hasn't been the same since he met Sabrina. When a dead child is found in San Francisco, they will have to work together again. Michael is hoping that they make it out alive.
This is the first book I have read from this author. I found it interesting and fast paced. Every time you turn around there is another enemy. I wish I had read the first t

High-octane stuff. This book (the third in the series) is about Michael as much as Sabrina and puts a lot of his actions in context as it explains a bit more of his backstory. But this is no due history lesson. The whole story is fraught with danger and tension, offset by little pearls of humour.

Michael and his crew are engaged to rescue the kidnapped grandson of a powerful senator. Somehow Sabrina gets tangled up in this as well because it goes waaaay beyond a simple kidnapping, but rather the

LOVED this book! I do think the 1st book Carved in Darkness was the best one so far. I just saw the 4th book is coming out in a few months. Not to sure how to feel about that. I don't know what else could possibly go wrong with the characters in this series. Hopefully, the 4th wont be a big disappointment. I think all 3 of these are great. Likeable characters and a great story. All of them so far have deserved 4 stars. ...more
