I’m surprised, and humbled, to receive my first starred review! Not because I don’t believe in this story, but because I’ve never gotten one before. Lol!
Last week I learned Forbidden Promises received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. For those who don’t know, “Publishers Weekly, familiarly known in the book world as PW and “the bible of the book business,” is a weekly news magazine focused on the international book publishing business.” PW is a “go to” source for information in the publishing industry.
The magazine publishes over 9,000 reviews a year. For the first book in my new series to receive a starred review, meaning it’s considered a book of high quality, is kind of unbelievable. I feel weird just typing those words.
Forbidden Promises is the start of my Jackson Falls Series and releases on February 25, 2020. The series is filled with family secrets, lies, and forbidden love centered around a wealthy family in North Carolina. Those familiar with my writing know I love drama and passion! Forbidden Promises delivers all of that and more.
Thank you for joining me on this ride. As always, I wouldn’t be here without the readers who take the time to pick up my books. You all are the ones who encourage me to keep writing.
What do you do when you want the one person you can never have?
Get in and get out. That was India Robidoux’s plan for this family visit. But when her brother needs her help with his high-profile political campaign, India has no choice but to stay and face the one man she’s been running from for years—Travis, her sister’s ex-husband. One hot summer night when Travis was still free, they celebrated her birthday with whiskey and an unforgettable kiss. The memory is as strong as ever—and so are the feelings she’s tried so hard to forget.
Travis Strickland owes everything to the Robidoux family. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do for them—his divorce could never change that. Still, he has one regret. Impulsive and passionate, India always understood him better than anyone else. And the longer they work together on the campaign, the more torn he is. Coming between her and her sister is out of the question. But how can he let love pass him by a second time?
“With skillful characterization and sizzling chemistry, Williams succeeds at capturing the allure of this taboo connection. Even skeptical readers will be hard-pressed not to root for India and Travis.”
