A man's word is his bond. His family is his strength. His heart is his own.
Superstar musician Caden Granger has spent years running from love, commitment and family. Yet despite his fame and fortune, he knows the kind of respect and adoration he needs can only come from one person—the very woman who wants nothing to do with him.
Charity volunteer and owner of a wine boutique, Shiloh Timmons finally got her life on track once her relationship with Caden ended, and she's in no hurry to revisit a romance with the man who believes she left him standing at the altar.
If Caden can't have Shiloh by his side, all the success in the world will mean nothing. Now he has a chance to renew his promises…but is it too late?
Jackson's rambling second Grangers contemporary (after A Brother's Honor) fails to deliver. Caden Granger and Shiloh Timmons planned to elope to escape her controlling father, Samuel, but then Samuel sent Caden photos of Shiloh cavorting with another man. Hurt and angry, Caden avoids Shiloh for years, finally telling her off in no uncertain terms. When Caden learns that the photos were doctored, he tries to regain Shiloh's love and trust. Shiloh disregards Caden's apology, but she can no longer deny that she still loves him. The Granger brothers also have to contend with an employee's suicide, their mother's affairs, and hit-and-runs that may not be accidents. Lurking in the background are their imprisoned father, who's trying to protect his sons, and the people who set him up and want to keep the truth from being revealed. The main romance conflict resolves too quickly, with secondary romances and endless subplots stealing the spotlight, but fans will stay the course.
