Victoria Blane and Levi Manor have already planned their lives together. Their relationship might not be perfect, but they knew they were in for the long-haul. Then, a tragedy strikes, promises were broken, Victoria was left alone, consumed with grief and struggling to move on from the horrific event she had experienced.

She had loved Levi all her life, and to live without him – she did not even consider it possible. It took some time, a desperate cry for help and a very determined friend to pull her up from her stupor.

Then there’s Brighton Hanley – he too have lost someone. He knows what it feels like to have a heart filled with grief that you think you have no room for more in there. When he met Victoria, he understands how she felt, the pain was radiating off her. But it didn’t stop him from wanting her –

Victoria likes Brighton – but she never knows if she’ll ever be ready to replace Levi in her heart. Brighton is patient, he’s always there, he never pushes himself, and he had given her the time and space to heal. The real question is though, is she ready to give him a piece of her heart?

Stealing Promises is a short, emotional read. You will feel Victoria’s struggle to go through with life, her intense grief as she wakes up and realize Levi would never be able to fulfill his promises, and hope as Kate and Brighton comes into her life. It’s a story of love, second chances, moving on and life filled with hope and endless possibilities.

“Levi? Are you all right? You’ve been so distracted all night.” She put down her spoon and made a heart shape with her hands. It was their secret message, to say “I love you” in a private way, even in the most public of places.

Levi looked up at her, his eyes gleaming by the candlelight, and he smiled. “Victoria, I have something for you.”
