The Promise Synopsis

Devastated by circumstances beyond her control, Sophie Ryan’s life rips her from the arms of her first love, Jack. With only memories of their lost love, she’s forced to start over in a new town; surviving on her own for the first time since he left. Trying to begin her new life, fate decides a different direction for her, causing her to make a choice she never thought she’d have to.

Unsure of commitment after his failed engagement, Chase Mitchell finds himself stuck on a path of failed conquests and late nights at the bar. That is until he finds a pair of mesmerizing green eyes sitting in hi usual spot. Something about this quiet girl forces him to question everything he has ever thought about love.

As Sophie looks down at the fork that’s presented in her path, will she choose the right direction? Will she be able to move towards the arms of the

 Exclusive Excerpt from

The Promise by Kate Benson

The light from the bathroom splays across the bed, illuminating her features just enough for me to see the way the blush heats the soft planes of her face. Her long, thick eyelashes rest there just above her cheeks, brushing her newly sun-kissed skin. I can just barely see the light dust of freckles that dance across the bridge of her nose.

As she gives me the small smile that always causes my breathing to hitch, those rogue dimples of hers pop up and are just begging to be kissed. She opens her eyes and I feel my heart stopping for what feels like the millionth time today.

Every time she looks at me, everything else simply ceases to exist. My girl is beautiful. She’s simply breathtaking and she really has no idea. I’m under her spell, completely enraptured by her, but she doesn’t seem to have a clue.

I tighten my grip on her bare waist as I trace the outline of her perfect lips, continuing to marvel at her before I’m able to speak again. “You are absolutely everything to me, Sweetheart. I didn’t even know my heart was capable of feeling so much. Before I met you, I was just floating and I didn’t even know it,” she opens her eyes again and they meet with mine. “But now I’m alive. I wouldn’t be able to exist without you, Sophie. Don’t ever doubt what you mean to me. Ever.”

Bio

I grew up in Texas and moved to Florida when I met the love of my life 13 years ago. I wrote my first poem when I was five and it was about my love affair with pickles. I still love pickles but I like to think my writing has grown since then. I absolutely adore anything to do with books whether it’s writing them or devouring them in one sitting. I live on music, love, and sweet tea. I am known for my silly but blunt personality. I’ve been lucky enough to find the love of my life, marry him and now we’re working on our happily ever after. He inspires me in everything I do, but especially in telling love stories. I’m an ordinary girl living an extraordinary love and I’m so happy I get to share it with the world through my writing. I can’t wait for you to read my debut novel, The Promise!

TOP TEN LISTS

10 Things You Don’t Know About Kate Benson

10)  When I was fifteen, I had a dream about my wedding day. In the dream I married someone I didn’t know at the time. When I was twenty one, I met him while I was on vacation. He’s now my husband.

9)  I love to use swear words. 

8)  My favorite singer ever is Freddie Mercury and I celebrate his birthday every year. I make a cake, watch (and sing along to) at least one Queen concert, wear moustache earrings and a Betty Boop shirt. Sometimes I even wear a cape. Yes, you read that right. I have a cape and it’s awesome.

7)  My favorite color is hot pink. I wear at least one hot pink thing every day.

 6)  I love tattoos and have ten of them.

5)  I don’t know how to roller skate and I can’t do a cartwheel. However I can air guitar like nobody’s business

4)  Ever since I had an accident in one on my twelfth birthday, I’ve been terrified of go-carts.

3)I am a huge music lover and listen to it any chance I get. If I can’t, I’m singing in my head. I also get really nervous if I try to drive without the radio on and find it impossible to listen to Outkast without shaking it like a Polaroid picture

2)  My two favorite books are The Color Purple by Alice Walker and The Edge of Never by J. A. Redmerski. They are also the only two books that have ever made me sob like a baby.

  1)  I am a lover of all things vampire. Shiny, decaying, gross, hot. I don’t care. I love them all. Yes, Edward Cullen is my favorite. Yes, I know he glitters in the sun. Yes, I love him anyway.
