When the past dictates your future can you learn to live in the now?
That is the question that keeps coming back to Nora Williams. Having been let down by men in the past she finds it very hard to trust, and this goes double for racing driver, Davey Johnson. When Nora learns that Davey is her nine year old nephew’s father, she must strive to trust him for Ben’s sake. The longer they spend together the more their views on life change.
Davey has been against romantic relationships since his mother walked out on him as a child. Distorting his views of ‘happily ever after’ he has gladly taken on the role of playboy, that is until he meets Nora. Finding her views on life, love, and the fact that she doesn’t fall at his feet, intriguing, Davey wants to spend more time with her and his newly found son. When his racing and sponsorship impact with his family commitments, Davey must make the ultimate choice – career or love.
This story has a interesting twist to it. It is not just an contemporary romance, there is a touch of mysticism involved. Nora has unique abilities. She can converse with the spirit word, namely her Grandfather. She also has a talent for animal whispering. Nora is a devote Vegan, she can sense the pain and suffering of animals and, as such, sets out to relieve as much of their torment as she can.
I am not a vegan or vegetarian, but I do like animals (I have a pet snake). I understand the views and principals that others have when they decline to eat meat for whatever reason. I fully understood Nora’s opinions on this matter and felt her sorrow at the separation of the cow and calf, the author has expressed the views of the main character in a non-preaching manner. I’m not sure that I would have been as quick to convert as Davey was, however I don’t own a cow and wouldn’t dream of eating a snake, so I guess I can see his point.
A really enjoyable read. I will definitely be reading the next story about AJ and Ella – The Perfect Lap – and like the look of Cloud Whispers that I will hopefully be reading soon.
With her sister’s death, Nora’s life changed in an instant. Forced to raise her orphaned nephew, the animal rescuer doesn’t expect to be dumped and fired by her kid-hating boyfriend/boss. After her own close call and a message from beyond, Nora introduces the little boy to his handsome, fast-living absentee father.
Davey Johnson is a hot-shot NASCAR driver who never wanted to be slowed down by fatherhood. But when he finds out he has a nine-year-old son, he vows to be a better father than his old man. When his first efforts fail in a big way, he enlists Nora’s parenting help. But what starts as a chore transforms into something way hotter than a final lap.
When Davey’s sponsors clash with Nora’s vegan ways, he’s forced to choose between his passion for racing and his love of Nora. Will they be able to blend their lives or will their romance run right off the track?
Nora’s Promise is a contemporary romance with a new age twist. If you like fast cars, caring heroines, and sizzling chemistry, then you’ll love Sedona Hutton’s contemporary love story.
