Product Description

Married For Money

Raimond Le Veq needed to marry to gain his inheritance and restore the fortunes of the House of Le Veq, the proud Black New Orleans family whose wealth had been ravaged by the War Between the States. Still wounded by the double-cross of the only woman he ever came close to loving, he gave the choice of bride to his mother. But he never be expected that she would pick Sable Fontaine--the beautiful former slave he could not allow himself to trust again.

Freed By Passion

Betrayed and sold to a cruel neighbor, Sable did whatever it took escape. With the spirits of her royal African ancestors guiding her, she made a bold bid for freedom, and won. But along the way she had to hurt the charming Union Major Le Veq, who had romanced her and championed her. Now fate has brought them back together in a marriage of convenience. Can she convince Raimond she was never a Rebel spy, and that this time, she'd choose him above all else?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent & Exciting - Found Time Somehow to Read This Book! 16 Oct 1998
By - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I recently discovered Beverly Jenkins. I never actively read 'romance' books and now I wonder if I've been missing out. Her development of characters and their relationship with Sable is wonderful. Sable's mother-in-law was a pearl and her brother-in-laws were humorous and brotherly. It was great to show Raimond's attachment and involvement with the adopted children. I love how the men in these books are larger than life and how they are attracted to strong-minded women. Ms. Jenkins is an excellent writer and I can't wait for her new book (I also am searching for copies of her out of print books - Indigo and Vivid.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is another excellent book by Beverly Jenkins 19 July 1998
By Hattie Boyd - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Through The Storm is another wonderful book from Beverly Jenkins. This book catches the readers up on the characters in Indigo.
Sable is a young woman escaping from her new owner. She meets Raimond LeVeq at one of the slave camps the Union has set up. Raimond is in charge of the camp. He is captivated by Sable, but at first she does not feel the same.
Raimond and Sable do finally begin a relationship, but Sable is caught up in not being taken back to the plantation and leaves with her new friends.
Raimond meets Sable again as the woman his mother wants him to marry. From this point on, Raimond is in trouble. It does not help that he only wants Sable to fulfill the provisions of his grandfather's will, that his brothers and his mother are in love with Sable.
Raimond finally admits that he is in love with Sable, and has to take teasing from his good friend Galeno.
This book is a good read and the history that Beverly always includes in her books on add t! o the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific ethnic romance 24 Jun 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1864 Georgia, Sable Fontaine realizes that her occupation as a slave may be nearing an end but she remains in jeopardy. Though she has been treated reasonably well and educated by her father (the plantation owner) and is close with her half-sister, her father's wife has sold her to the cruel Henry Morse. Sable flees her home via the underground railroad with Henry in hot pursuit.

At one station, she meets Raimond LeVeg, who falls in love with the spicy girl. However, she runs away from his camp when Henry arrives. This leaves Raimond questioning his own wisdom as he wonders if she is a spy? Sable goes to New Orleans where she meets Raimond's mamam and ultimately she weds Raimond. However, Henry is a nineteenth century stalker, who is coming for his property regardless of Lincoln and his proclamations.

Beverly Jenkins is by far the leading writer of African-American historical romances and her latest novel, THROUGH THE STORM, enhances that well-deserved reputation. Though the story line requires an acceptance of coincidence, readers will enjoy the historical authenticity that brings to light facts often ignored by history texts. The lead rotagonists are a charming duo, whose romance is passionate and hot. Any fan of historical romances, who have failed to try a Jenkins novel is missing out on one of the best writers of the sub-genre.

When Beverly write a story, she sucks you right into her books. Whenever I read a portion of any of her books, when I get through reading it I have to check the cloths that I am wearing because I feel like I just escaped from someone. I also feel like I just made love to Raymond or one of his brothers. I feel like I have been on a journey with Beverly and her characters. If only she could write more books. I want to read something by Beverly once a month.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written Romance!! 13 July 1998
By - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Wow!! This was another splendid romance written by Mrs. Jenkins. I am an avid reader of romance novels and Beverly Jenkins is at the top of my list. I must say that African American women everywhere should feel truly blessed to have such a gifted writer within our time. The romance in the novel was sizziling,and passionate. It gave me goose bumps and made me wish that I could conjure up a Leveq look-alike. The history was astounding and informative. Sable and Raimond made a terrific couple, despite their differences. It surely took a large heart for the Leveq's to take in three homeless children. It took me by suprise to find out that the characters Galen and Hester appeared throughout the novel as well. I have read all of Mrs. Jenkin's novels and they just keep getting better and better. I can't wait for Mrs. jenkins to come to the Atlanta area for a book signing tour. There are two questions that I have for Mrs. Jenkins before I leave. Where do you find the men built like Adonis to pose for your cover? and When is the next novel coming out? Until next time, Keep up the good work !!!
