Every author has a favorite novel or two that she has written. THE PROMISE, which was just picked up by Noble Romance Publishing, is one of my favorites. The theme can be summed up as Romeo and Juliet meet the Godfather. That says it all. I cried at the end of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and still do whenever I see West Side Story. Heck, I cried when I finished writing this book. (No, it wasn't from relief.) My biggest joy will be to entertain my readers with this story. Maybe you'll fall in love with Lucia Pallaccio and Anthony Falco, too.
