S.E.X. Review~ Promises of Mercy by Vella Day

Killing is wrong. The reason doesn’t matter. 

When oncology nurse, Amber Delacroix, learns her reckless brother has been in a paralyzing motorcycle accident, sorrow fills her soul. He’s murdered a few days later, and now she’s utterly devastated. Adding to life’s cruelty, the cowboy cop assigned to her brother’s case brings her in for questioning. 

Stone Benson, the paramedic who brought Amber’s brother into the hospital, stays by her side throughout the tragedy. He treats her with kindness and compassion—something she hasn’t experienced much in her life. Amber yearns for more than his comforting words, and they embark on a tremulous journey. Just when she feels that their relationship is at a turning point, he reveals that he likes to share his women with his good friend and roommate, Cade. That turns out to be a huge problem, because Cade is the cop who believes she’s guilty of killing her brother. 

As chance would have it, another murder occurs when both Cade and Amber are in the same location. Realizing she’s not the mercy killer, Cade offers a heartfelt apology—one that includes dinner and a sharing of souls. When things heat up between them, she succumbs to his passionate ways. The big question that plagues her now is where does Stone fit in? 

Stone knows exactly where Amber needs to be. Right between him and his best friend, Cade. He'll do whatever is necessary to convince her that she has finally met two men she can trust and build a life with. 

Too bad the killer has other ideas. When he goes after Amber, what will the men need to do to save her in time to pursue a loving ménage relationship?

Ms. Day’s book Promises of Mercy (Montana Promises 1) was set in the town of Rock Hard, Montana against the beautiful back drop of the mountains. 

This was a sadly sweet story of a woman, Amber Delacroix’s journey into finding herself and just surviving the tragedies around her.  Amber was a nurse at the local hospital, dealing with critical ill patients.  You really felt the pain of Amber coming to terms with her own demons and the tragic loss of her brother, Chris.

Stone Benson, a paramedic, met Amber at a low point in her life and found in helping her he may just have found the one woman he had been looking for. Stone was a strong, compassionate man with a wonderful sense of self and helping others.

Cade Carter was the police detective working a case of mercy killings at the hospital where Amber worked. Cade had his own demons to fight and Amber seemed to be the woman to help him do this. Cade was strong, focused and passionate. Together can Stone and Cade win Amber’s heart and show her how perfectly they fit together?

As the story progressed you found yourself falling under the spell Ms. Day had woven. This one has all the parts a good book should have, sweet, sad, sexy, passion, and mystery. You felt compelled to keep reading to find out what happens next.

I look forward to the next book in the series, ready to see what happens next in the town of Rock Hard, Montana.
