A Promise Worth Making
Dr. Rachelle Joseph has no time to dally with a man. She is on her way to Haiti to contribute her medical expertise in the aftermath of the earthquake. Having grown up in a New York orphanage, neither fostered nor adopted, independent Rachelle has recently discovered her Haitian heritage and seeks to embrace it. But life throws her a curveball. On the plane to Port-au-Prince, Rachelle meets Nicolas Marchand, a handsome French architect who, for some reason, gets her heart racing.
Nicolas’ father had always told him the Marchand men were “gifted with knowing, when they know, that they know” when they meet the woman with whom they’ll fall in love. Though this had been true for his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Nicolas had never truly believed this would happen to him—until Rachelle Joseph, that is.
The hard part now is convincing the lucky lady the two of them belong together in spite of Rachelle’s trust issues and fear of depending on another person. Will Rachelle overcome her determination to keep control of her life by shutting Nicolas out, or will he persuade her that loving and trusting another person is better than living only on the surface of life?
