One woman’s fresh start goes up in flames when she discovers a threatening letter signed, Always Yours.

With nowhere else to turn, she goes to her small town’s local security office for help. Lance Knight is a man who walks by faith, so when Eliza Pierce asks for protection, he doesn’t hesitate.

However, she’s made it no secret that she doesn’t care for him, and he’s not overly fond of her either.

As the danger escalates, though, these two strangers learn what it means to rely on each other all while trying to discern the identity of the one hunting her before it’s too late.

This story combines pulse-pounding suspense, romance, and an inspirational message about self-worth and learning to trust again.

Praise for Pages of Promise

Shelia (Goodreads)

“A simmering romance, heart-stopping action scenes, and a powerful faith journey for Eliza make this a must-read novel."

Devoted To Hope Book Blog

"This novel isn't your typical happily-ever-after romance. It's a raw, unflinching exploration of trauma, suspicion, and the slow, delicate dance of rebuilding trust. Jessica Ashley masterfully weaves suspense and faith into a tapestry rich with emotional depth."

Christi (Goodreads)

“Don’t let the fact that Pages of Promise is a clean romantic suspense fool you, this novel packs quite the punch, and is one of my favorite suspenseful January reads.”

Dealing with him is the last thing she wants to do, but when someone tries to kill her, he risks his life to save hers. 


After making a deathbed promise, former Army Ranger Elijah Breeth is pulled into danger alongside the cold, unfeeling woman he swore to protect. 


And the only clue they have as to who is after Andie, is a box of letters left beneath her grandmother’s bed.


As Elijah digs deeper into Andie’s past, he begins to realize that the dark-haired beauty is more than what she seems…and her secrets might just be enough to bury them both.
