    Sweet Clean Historical Romance

    This is a reworked and re-edited version of the book which was originally published in 2003. Julianne MacLean does such a good job of creating rich characters with thought provoking storylines, and does with this book as well. Adam's Promise is a standalone book and does not end in a cliffhanger. It is sweet clean historical romance. Even though historical romance is not my typical genre, I really enjoyed this book and think you will too. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not  going to repeat all of that info here. Madeline boarded the ship from England bound for Nova Scotia to marry Adam, who she has loved forever thinking he wanted her. Adam wants her sister Diana, who was his first love, and was not at all happy to see her. Adam immediately sent another letter to England, this time directly to Diana, along with a marriage proxy. But the more time he spends with Madeline the more he enjoys being with her. And what happens with them if Diana decides accept his proposal? Even if Diana comes, will she stay with him or leave him again of someone wealthier comes along? I enjoyed this book so much I had a hard time putting it down. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    A promise of a great story

    This book had some beautiful moments in it where one could just sigh...... It's about the friendship and love between friends, acquaintances and partners. In this story it appears as if Madeline and Adam don't have a hope of creating a successful relationship and yet they seem to be so well suited. And then we have the selfish, mean sister who is like the evil queen in Snow White. There are also some lovely people that our hero and heroine come into contact with. They all help each other in the struggle to survive against the elements. I think this book was written for lovers of romance, those who can relate to survival under difficult circumstances and those of you who just want a great book to read. It reads easily and Julianne MacLean has once again woven a beautiful tale. An ARC copy of this book was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.

    Deception and true love

    When Madeline arrived home to see her father had returned she had no idea her life was about to change. Her father informed her she was to marry her sister Diana's first love. That he had requested her hand in marriage. Madeline e secretly had loved Adam for years but felt it was to good to be true. Only to find Adam was expecting Diana the Twists keep you on the edge of your seat a great romance

    Adams promise

    Reading the plot reviews this sounds awfully like the storyline of Green Dolphin Country set in NZ, not Canada.

    another great historical by Julianne MacLean

    Adam’s Promise is a great story. Even though I had read it years ago, this retouched version was like reading a whole new story again. The heroine, Madeline Oxley, had resigned herself to a life looking of after her father. Her reputation in tatters, when her father tells her that he has had an offer for her hand from Adam Coates, she doesn’t stop to question it, but readily sets off for the colonies. Adam was formerly from York, but had left several years ago, desiring to own land, rather than continuing as a tenant farmer. He had done well for himself, but now a widower desires to marry again. There aren’t many eligible women in Nova Scotia, so of course he writes to the father of first youthful passion. Except – that woman isn’t Madeline, but her sister Diane. Adam’s first reaction on seeing Madeline is instinctive and unthinking. But Madeline is determined to make the best of the opportunities away from the censure of her hometown. A tangled tale ensues, as it does with people acting from their emotions. But it’s a romance, so you know there is will be a HEA somewhere, just how Julianne MacLean will get there kept me reading. Thoroughly enjoyed this, and even though I had read it before, I learned a lot about the history of the province I live in!
