A father with something to hide, a jockey with a taste for blackmail, a man with an agonising secret - and a young woman in love, defying them all. Sophie Dixon is determined to leave her troubled past behind and forge a bright future on her beloved farm. While looking to buy a new horse, she is drawn back into her neighbour Aaron's Laidlaw's orbit, despite the bad blood between their families. Aaron isn't keen to sell his talented steeplechaser - particularly to a Dixon - but Sophie drives a hard bargain. Despite the best efforts of Sophie's father and Aaron's stable jockey, the pair develop a bond that surprises them both. And as their friendship deepens, so too do their feelings for each other. But Aaron is torn, haunted by a dark secret he fears can never be forgiven - especially by Sophie. Sophie might believe herself strong, but the truth behind her mother's death will test her strength, and her love, to the limit. She's been broken once. No one wants to see her broken again. Least of all the man who has grown to love her ...From an exciting new Australian voice, Promises is a moving and compelling story about love, loyalty and forgiveness.
