Detective Eric Stiles can’t believe that he is about to lose the one woman who has stolen his heart and regardless of what he does, it feels as she’s slipping away from him. He knows that he has to find the people who kidnapped Rebecca quickly, because she could be very close to death in the hands of the villains.

Rebecca Gailen is a strong willed person and carries the weight of the world on her shoulders. She has a younger sister, Lucy, to care for and they are at odds from time to time. Lucy showed a different side of herself to others than she did to her big sister and imagine Rebecca’s surprise to learn a few secrets about herself and her little sister. Rebecca becomes explosive with anger later, when dealing with her feelings of denial about how she could have done things better.

Jaded Promises is the third book in the Trust Me series and is just as captivating as the first two books. This story continues immediately from the last story with Rebecca and Lucy being held against their will and certain truths come to light for some of the main characters involved. At one time or another I wanted to shake Rebecca for her trying to handle everything thrown at her.

Eric is still the strong impressive man, who never realized how much he needed Rebecca and she is his rock. Rebecca should have trusted Eric more, but since she had to stand on her own so long, it’s hard to let someone else help.

Ms. Romaine has written another spell binding, well plotted story of murder, deceit, and distrust. I always love a good suspense/paranormal story, and this one had me on the edge wondering how it would end.

OK, Amy's a friend and I would wish her well anyway, but this trilogy is something else. She has done so well with it that I admit to the sin of envy (along with several other, more interesting ones).

All three books certainly grabbed me. I'd recommend them to anyone with a racy imagination.
