Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s possible that no one sets the scene for romance better than Beverly Jenkins…This is historical romance at its very best.” Washington Post
“Jenkins has expertly explored a period in this country’s history that is difficult to romanticize. An interesting aspect to this particular story is the love that develops between seemingly social opposites. Tolerance is not a high priority in nineteenth century America and finding love across the color line can be dangerous.” RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars, Top Pick!)
“Empathetic characters, a compelling romance, and gripping Old West history, including the rampant racial prejudice and injustice following the Civil War, combine in this first in a riveting new series from award winning writer Jenkins.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Jenkins combines vivid characters and sexual intensity with historical accuracy in a story and setting that will appeal to her core fans and newcomers alike.” Publishers Weekly
“The characters are strong and appealing in this excellent western historical romance, with its fascinating background and modern implications. Fans of Linda Lael Miller’s westerns may also enjoy much-loved Jenkins’ newest.” Booklist
“[A] warm and skilled narration…Staunton’s theater experience serves her well in creating a memorable cast of characters. Especially gratifying is her avoidance of equating shrillness with a child’s voice.” AudioFile
“Jenkins’ prose is lively and fluid, her characters complex and engaging, and her plot full of interesting side stories. For readers who enjoy love stories with steamy interludes against historical backdrops, Jenkins’ latest is not to be missed.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
