She never met a stray she didn’t love…
In high school, Sam Pennywell had a massive crush on Rick Russo. But he was her cousin’s boyfriend and strictly off-limits. Meeting Rick again years later, she can hardly recognize the man he’s become.
As a paramedic, Rick’s career is all about helping others. But in the line of duty, he’s become one of the injured. He’s caught in a dark place he can’t escape on his own. He can’t make Sam any promises of love. Promises are too easily broken.
Sam spends her life taking care of sick and homeless animals. She’s never met a stray she didn’t love, and Rick is the most important rescue she’ll ever make.

No Promises is a beautiful tale of second chances, healing, and love.
Sam is a kind soul who has a soft spot for strays. No matter if they are sick, homeless, or injured, Sam can’t help but take them in and love and care for them. Sam also has a soft spot for Rick Russo, her cousin’s handsome boyfriend, but he is off limits. She pines for him in secret and eventually they go their separate ways.
Rick dedicated his life to helping the sick and injured as a paramedic, but in a freak accident, Rick is injured and loses his way. A shell of the man he once was, he and Sam encounter each other again many years later. Rick is not the boy Sam remembers. He is broken, much like the animals Sam cares for.
Sam being Sam, she takes Rick in, gives him shelter, cares for him. She rescues him. The attraction is there, but Rick can’t open his heart to anyone, including Sam. He won’t promise her anything, but Sam doesn’t care.
Grab your tissues, folks. No Promises had me sobbing at times and crying tears of happiness at others. N. Raines writes with such eloquence and passion that you can’t help but feel you are a part of the story.
