Alexa Reed finally has it all: a new lease on life, a bright future with the man of her dreams, a job she loves, and a great group of friends. She believes in her own happiness again.
Is it too good to last?
Alexa’s bliss is short-lived when an unexpected situation threatens the love she and Julian share. Suddenly, she has to choose whether to STAY and HOLD ON, or run.
The pain is too much. She runs. She runs away from Julian and from a life she can no longer be a part of.
But love is never that simple and an unusual twist of fate leads them back to each other ... although everything is different.
Julian struggles to trust Alexa. She has a secret that threatens to ruin their fragile relationship. Alexa knows she has to tell Julian the truth, even if it destroys any chance of happiness.
They say love conquers all, but can it conquer betrayal from someone who has promised to love you forever?

Hilary Wynne has completely blown me away yet again! This series has quickly become a favorite of mine. I became emotionally attached to these characters in book 1 "Stay". This book was no different. In this book I cried a lot, got so frustrated and then said WTF. Hilary hits you with a twist you don't see coming. – Eye Candy Bookstore
Promise Me - Clean Excerpt © Hilary Wynne
“Saying yes to your proposal was the smartest decision I’ve ever made. Walking out of your life was the worst. That’s on me, not on you. I’m glad you pushed me and didn’t walk away, and I’m grateful we’re even talking right now.”“But?” He hears the pause. He always hears what I don’t say.“But, I agree you aren’t ready for us to be together like we were before. Neither one of us is the same as we were a few months ago.”“Really? How so?”I put my hand on his face and look at him. "I know exactly what I want now. I’ve never been more sure that you and I are right. I feel strong, Julian, like myself, for the first time in forever. I don’t need you to save me or fix me. I need you to love me and I need you to want me.”Julian just stares and takes my words in. “But I look in your eyes, listen to your words, feel how you touch me, and know you aren’t so sure anymore. I get it. I really do, and I don’t blame you one single bit. I told you before that I wasn’t going anywhere until you tell me to, and I mean it. But you need to figure out what you really want from me, from us. When you do, let me know. I’ll be here if you want me.”

Have you ever woken up one day and said, “Today’s the day I’m going to do (insert thing here)?” Well, I did, and the result is my first novel, Stay. I always thought of myself as a decent writer, and then a trip down memory lane through my ninth grade book of poetry confirmed it. I realize that I have always had a romantic side and a way with words. With support from my husband and kids (and an unspoken agreement to leave me alone for a few hours every night), I embarked on this incredible writing journey.
I’m originally from sunny Southern California and spent my summers in South Florida. I attended college at FSU and received my Masters in New Mexico. I finally settled in the Washington, DC area. My happy place has always been anywhere near the water.
When I’m not writing, I help run a business with my husband, watch an inordinate amount of sports (my kids play something 365 days a year), indulge my competitive spirit on the tennis court, and spend time with my awesome family and friends.
I am an avid reader, but find my characters feel neglected when I hang out with other author’s characters for too long. When I do read, historical fiction is my favorite genre. I love traveling and experiencing different cultures, places, and times.
I feel so blessed that my love of books inspired me to finally do something that I forgot I had always dreamed about doing.
My someday has arrived!
1. What inspired you to become a author?
I have always been a huge reader and although I never considered myself a "real" writer, I have had many jobs throughout my life where writing was a major component of my work. I literally woke up one day about two years ago and decided to try and write a book. Now 18 months later I have three out. I really was just following a passion and I can't imagine ever not writing now.
2. What is your favorite book?
This is a really hard question because I am a lifelong reader and have read so many great ones. If I had to tell you the last one I read that just touched my soul it would be Me Before You by JoJo Moyes.
3. Out of this series what book was the funniest to write?
I think that Hold On was my favorite to write. With Stay I didn't know what I was doing and what I was getting into. With Hold On I had a lot more confidence and felt I had gotten better as a writer. The last was very hard because I felt like I had a lot to live up to and also because I was potentially saying goodbye to these characters that I love so much.
4. What was the last book you read?
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
5. What do you enjoy doing when you are not reading or writing?
I love to play tennis and I love spending time with my family and friends. We go to concerts, sporting events and travel. I am a busy mom and a wife,so time is limited, but I just try to get out and enjoy life however I can.
