Stealing Lives. Stealing Love. Stealing Hearts.

Independent author, Brina Courtney is releasing a new adult contemporary romance entitled, Stealing Promises, on December 19, 2013

Stealing Promises is an emotional account of a young woman’s struggle of love, loss and finding her inner strength to move on.  “Losing love is hard. Getting over it is even harder”, Brina Courtney said about writing Stealing Promises.  “Sometimes all the chocolate in the world can’t solve your problems.”

“This book is for people who need a shoulder to cry on, a book that doesn’t pity or judge you for the mascara running down your cheeks. It’s honest and heartbreaking and sometimes ugly. But so is life. It’s the ugly parts that make others beautiful. So maybe this book shouldn’t be called Stealing Promises, maybe Healing Promises would have been a better fit. Whichever way you look at it, be prepared, grab tissues, and love life. Because life is beautiful even in it’s darkest form.”

Promises are made to be kept, never stolen. But that’s exactly what happened to Victoria Blane and Levi Manor. Tragedy strikes their perfect relationship leaving Victoria struggling to overcome the darkness that threatens to bury her.

Brighton Hanley knows what it’s like to lose someone. He knows what it’s like to be haunted by things that can never change. When he meets Victoria he recognizes the pain she’s trying to bury deep in her eyes. He knows she’s trying to hide, but he also knows that you can’t hide forever.

Victoria is drawn to Brighton in ways she never expected. But is she ready to let go of the past and grab on to her future?  Or will she run away from Brighton before she can be hurt again?
