When Halston Parker calls his daughter Caitlin to his deathbed, she's shocked to discover that her ex-husband, Dex Madaris, has been summoned as well. It's been four years since Caitlin felt the heat of Dex's touch, the urgency of his kisses and the promise of an everlasting love that never was. As a flood of bittersweet memories warms a cold and lonely night, Halston's real motive for the unexpected reunion comes to light. As does the daughter Dex never knew existed, a secret Caitlin has kept too long from the only man she's ever loved. A secret she fears Dex will never forgive.....Deserves a second chance
Despite the past, Caitlin and Dex cannot resist the attraction, or fight their hunger to renew a once-in-a-lifetime passion they thought they'd lost forever. As each learns a lesson in faith and trust, they discover that no heartache, no betrayal, is strong enough to withstand the enduring power of true love.

Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
This is a good book but the audio version is bordering on bad. It is so-so. What happened to Shari Peele, she did a great job on your audio books. This guy Pete is ruining your audio versions. He is getting better, but don't let him practice on your books. I am so excited you have done the Madaris family on audible, but he ruined the experience for me. He does some of the voices OK, but overall it is just not good.
The book is typical Brenda Jackson, which I enjoy most of her books. Dex finally learns the truth about his an ex-wife, well the wife he thought was his ex-wife: the divorce, and that he has a daughter. Dex had pretty much given up on love and marriage. The betrayal, he thought had turned him into another person. One that would not allow him to fall in love again. After the death of Caitlin's father and the truth is revealed, his love is restored, and he is once again able to be the man he was before. It's a good book to get you away for a few hours. It is not intense, just a calm book. I admit it I am easy to please if I can walk away with a smile. I don't read a straight up romance if I want suspense and a lot of drama. If you are looking for just a romance book then you should enjoy this one. It has some twist and turns and a hit of drama, BUT Pete is not high on the narrator scale. I truly hope he gets better I would hate to stop buying Ms. Jackson's book because of him.
let just say I will not buy another book if I have to listen to his voice
I have the book I love the story the story, I was excited to have it in audible but not with that person reading
I love the book the entire series , I have them all miss Jackson I have 75 of your books .
I gave re-read this book twice. Hearing Peter narrate this book was like listening to a movie. I really like the versatility of his voice. Especially when he does the voice of the male lead. Yeah I'm hearing Maderis swagger all up in my head. I tried listening to other narrators - male and female - Peter is the man with the voice
ehh i would say yes, before you go to bed his tone of voice will put you to sleep! but the story was a good one!
i am not sure what book that i have read that is close to whispered promises.
more life in his tone he reminds me of that guy "buller! faruis buller"
when he beat the crap out of the man who tried to kill his wife!
Well, sad to say that my husband couldn't handle my inner bad girl. He did something very stupid, and we are no longer together.
Dex's daughter Jordan.
His deep voice. I always pictured Dex with a deep sexy voice.
The first time that he meet his daughter.
I hope that you will get all of Mrs. Jackson's books in this form.
