After undergoing plastic surgery to correct some severe facial defects, Lauren was looking forward to starting afresh. She is almost run down by a car outside her new print and frame shop, but figures it was just an accident. Arriving at her new rural farm home, she is attacked by a wild dog in the yard. Understandably uneasy, she checks the house and is sure some things have been moved around. Lauren is on alert when handsome Matt Kruger shows up at her shop, claiming to have been a close friend of her brother (who has been dead for over a year)…Is Matt involved in the strange happenings around her? Threats and Promises, a Delinsky classic, was first published as a Harlequin Intrigue in 1986.
