William Decker, an orphan who grew up without warmth or companionship from those around him, had been a loner all his life, preferring solitude, loneliness and dark corners to friends, anything resembling a spotlight, and even love. When he met Roxanne Hart his first and only year of college, he'd found a center he'd unconsciously looked for all his life. Though Rox loved him deeply as a friend, she was in love with another man and he'd never really had a shot there, despite his relentless loyalty. When she announces her wedding, William knows it's long past time for him to stop wishing for the moon, but, more than that, he realizes for the first time that he'd set his heart on an unavailable woman purposely. He's lived his life on the principle of 'Better to not love and lose what you never had to begin with' and 'You can't be hurt by anything you haven't invested yourself in'...and he can't deny it's done little beyond keep him lonely.

Sapphire Stephenson married, had a child--and divorced--before she was out of her teens. But starting out life with a newborn and parents who refused to understand why she couldn't forgive her cheating husband even once, she'd taken the only job she'd been able to get as a waitress, and later a bartender, at a rough biker joint in New York City. Sapphire is certain of two things: That being a good role model for her daughter is the most important thing in her life... and that there isn't a man alive worth any loyalty. The dudes who come through the bar have no respect for let alone interest in anything that isn't transitory with the women around them. William Decker is the one exception to the rule she's observed, and he intrigues her the way no other man ever has. But is even he capable of more than promises in the dark that he'll break without regret by morning light?

    4 Stars! "'You’re a hypocrite' rattles around in Sapphire Stephenson’s head. Guilt plagues her. Does her daughter Yasmine know about William “Deck” Decker, the bouncer at bar, the man who’d saved her from being raped and now takes her breath away in the bar’s office after her bartending duties and his bouncer duties are over for the night? Being a good example for Yasmine, her sixteen-year-old, has been Sapphire’s mission in life. She hasn’t brought a man home in ten years. On the run for most of Yasmine’s life, with only each other to cling to, they’ve been more than just mother and daughter; they’ve been best friends until recently. Beautiful, responsible, industrious, intelligent Yasmine, seemingly overnight, had become a rebellious teenager with a boyfriend too old for her. When Sapphire set rules, the angry 'You’re a hypocrite' spewed out of Yasmine’s mouth. Deck, tough, handsome, mysterious, and long-time customer, has stopped his heavy drinking and turned bouncer after Sapphire’s near rape. He’s know her for years and used her for a shrink as he sat at the bar drinking himself to numbness night after night. Rejection, he can't come to terms with, has shredded his self-esteem—for some reason he’s been deemed unworthy in his own estimation to be loved by his own mother and the women he’s protected and loved--still loves. Deck’s 'Whatever you want, honey,' sounds like a promise to Sapphire. But are promises made in the dark meant to be kept? Once burned, twice shy, Sapphire questions her own actions, but being with Deck feels so right. They all have emotional miles to go before they can find their happy-ever-after—making captivating reading. Karen Wiesner does a super job of making a book that is in a series very readable as a standalone story. Her characters with all their flaws come alive and reach right in and touch the reader’s heart. As she weaves their backstories in, one’s heart grieves for the hurts they’ve suffered. Wiesner makes PROMISES IN THE DARK a memorable, vicarious experience for the reader." -Long and Short Reviews
