Stolen Promise by Lisa Marie Wilkinson is one romance book that will hold its promise of everything we have come to expect from a historical romance novel. I really don't think I've read a book about Gypsies before but I must say that this is a must have read. Absolutely scrumptious!
Jade is not only a Gypsy, but like most of her people she is astoundingly beautiful. Green eyes that draw you into their depths with raven hair that has a halo of blueish to it to make it shine like spun silk. She wears very colorful clothing that only accentuates her lithe frame. She is spirited and head strong which is frowned upon amongst her people and her father believes what she needs is a husband with a strong hand to hold her in place.
Evan is a half breed and doesn't exactly fit in on either side of his families nationalities. Not finding out about his heritage until he is a grown man, he goes in search of a people that very well might not accept him because of who he is.
Dimitri is a very handsome Gypsy male but with a personality that brings out brutal abuse and a jealousy that does not end, it takes him to places he never thought he would have to go to get the one woman who was promised to him as a child to be his bride. He's one of those people you just absolutely have to hate, no ands, ifs or buts.
Our author has given us a action packed, emotional powerhouse that will keep you turning pages as quickly as possible from beginning to end. A story of greed, hate, deception, love, trust and misunderstandings that will show us that making up is hard to do but the benefits are so worth it in the end. I totally adored this book and I do hope you do also.
