Roman is a Silverback Gorilla shifter. Born into a troop that required its members to battle for position, he struggled as a child to simply survive. As soon as he was old enough, he joined the military — an easy way out and a guarantee of three square meals a day. After serving his country, he wandered until accidentally finding himself surrounded by people who genuinely welcomed him, appreciated him for who he was at heart. Always one to steer clear of Alpha run families, he’s feeling differently about this one. This Alpha is caring, supportive. He falls into the rhythm of daily life, happy, satisfied with his life, until he stumbles across his mate on a road trip. But she’s human, doesn’t feel the same pull he does and he’s forced to leave her behind to return home, and try to win her over long distance. But now he’s learned that she’s been arrested and charged with a crime she didn’t commit. And he’s been given custody of her daughter. With a broken heart, and a new daughter, this new father has to find a way to free his mate, bring her home to her daughter, and make her fall in love with him all at the same time.
Talie’s been alone most of her adult life, having lost her family during her high school years. Falling in love with the wrong guy right out of high school hasn’t helped. The selfish, mama’s boy she’d errantly married landed himself in jail for several years, leaving Talie to raise their child as a single mother. Rather than see it as a burden, she’s seen it as a blessing. At least he can’t beat her while he’s in jail. But life isn’t always what you expect. Waiting tables at a truck stop in order to support her daughter, she meets a man that takes her breath away. When he begs her to leave with him, she turns him down. She has a daughter to consider and knows nothing about him — she just can’t take the chance. But then her ex gets out of jail unexpectedly and she and her daughter are forced back into his world. Her life implodes when she finds herself accused of murder — and her daughter in social services. The beautiful man that’s been trying to win her heart long distance is the only option she can think of for her daughter. She signs over custody to him, determined to at least save her daughter, even if she can’t save herself.
But Talie doesn’t know about Roman’s hidden nature. She doesn’t know about the Pride of shifters he has standing behind him. She doesn’t know that she belongs to him, just like her daughter now belongs to him. He will stop at nothing until she’s home safe, secure with the family she’s destined to be a part of, loving him the way he loves her and his new daughter.

It’s always so great to read one of Sandra’s books, especially one in this series, because it’s like coming home. You get to visit with all of your favorite characters and they’re like family! I’ve been waiting for Roman’s story for awhile. Talie is falsely accused of murder by her ex-husband and is in jail. Roman has custody of her daughter and, to him, Darcie is his daughter. (Talie is Roman’s fated mate.) This story is about how Roman helps to save Talie. This story is basically my favorite trope.
Roman’s Vow made me want bacon and blueberry muffins. It made my cry in a few spots. And it also made me want to have Roman as my sugar daddy. Hey! You can’t blame me. I imagined Roman as Brock O’Hurn. It’s a medium on the steamy scale, but believe me when I tell you, you HAVE to read this series. I’m always so honored to beta read for Sandra and I wholeheartedly give this book 5 stars. It’s everything I was waiting for… Mad love! We finally get Roman’s story and it’s like coming home! 5 stars
About Sandra Neeley
My name is Sandra R Neeley. I write Paranormal, Fantasy and SciFi Romances. Why? Because normal is highly overrated. I’m 56, I have two kids, one 34 and one 14, one grandchild, one husband, and a menagerie of animals. I am a homebody and prefer my writing /reading time to a crowd. I’ve had stories and fictional characters wandering around in my head for as long as I can remember. I started letting them out into the real world and surprisingly, people have loved them. I am a Self-Published Author, and I like it that way because I can decide what and when to write. I am by no means a formal, polished, properly structured individual and neither are my stories, but people seem to love the easy emotion and passion that naturally flow from them. A bit of a warning though, there are some “triggers” in them that certain people should avoid, so please read the synopsis supplied with each book before buying.
