About "The Promise of Rayne"
Rayne Shelby has spent her entire life trying to earn the approval of her high-powered family, with the hope of one day managing her late grandfather's prestigious Idaho lodge. But when she makes a mistake that puts her future in jeopardy, she faces an impossible choice: defy her family or deny her dream. The only way to fix the mess she's created is to enlist the help of her neighbor, Levi, the apprentice of her family's greatest enemy. And if Rayne gets caught crossing the divided property lines, the consequences will be irreparable. Levi Harding has never forgotten the August night he shared with Rayne when they were teens-or the way she later rejected him. Despite his warring instincts, he can't ignore her plea for help or the spark that's ignited between them. But now, as wildfires bear down on their town and family secrets are revealed, their newfound alliance might just go up in smoke.

I have long been a fan of Nicole Deese's novels. There is so much vitality in her writing; no matter the characters, no matter their personalities, and no matter the mood. But in The Promise of Rayne, she has definitely outdone herself. Rayne is such a beautiful, compassionate person, but she's imprisoned by the need for her family's approval. All her dreams for the future centre on the lodge and her plans to once again make the lodge a place that will bring the community together, but all it takes is one little mistake and her dream is further away than ever. Levi is the stuff everyday heroes are made of. He's loyal, hard-working, patient, self-sacrificing. But he struggles to understand how Ford - a man who has given him more than he could ever repay in one lifetime - can continue to live under the lies the Shelby family have promulgated for the last eighteen years without speaking up for himself. This is one of those books where there is a depth of emotion in the words and actions that will cause you to press a hand over your heart at regular intervals. But that same heart also ached as Rayne struggled to reach the place where her dreams could flourish. Most of all, I was caught by surprise at the beautiful picture of what it means to love your enemies.
Filled with unpredictable scenes, great characters and a fast moving plot, this novel is very well written and will keep your attention until the last page. Definitely an author I will be looking forward to hear from again. Thanks to NetGalley and Waterfall Press for a free copy to review.
