5.0 out of 5 stars MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE 8 May 2017
By Nina - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the first book I've bought and read by Beverly Jenkins on paperback. Very magnificent writing and great history background. I love the combination of the story line and romance. I love coming back to it every chance I get.
5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner 6 Nov. 2015
By BWH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I can not say enough how much I love Ms Jenkin's book. Not only are they romantic and exciting and nerve-wrenching, but they Aldo provide wonderful host or lessons. I have yet to read a book where I haven't learned something. This story of Leah and Ryder was so good and dramatic. I could not stop reading!
5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal Writing! 9 July 2015
By Anntoinette Angrum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just finished this and I am astounded that it has not become a movie! The characters are so alive...., the setting so lush! I wanted to see the Denver town, Eloise's art room, Helene's house & furniture, and the clothing so badly! It was all written with such detail! Leah's gowns were gorgeous! I know that Ryder is such a beautiful man because of my own family tree with similar Creole, Native American, African American bloodlines. I am so awed with how Ms. Jenkins writes! I cannot put her books down and with this one I found myself leaving my TV off or taking long bus or train rides so I could become a part of her worlds! Please turn this into a movie!
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest villains ever 29 Jan. 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Beverly Jenkins is a master of weaving historical truth and fictional romance. However this book stands out with one of the most frightening villains. I won't spoil it but the villain is very realistic and jealous and self-righteous people like that are the true horror CW: Suggested Mental Illness [although I think it wasn't illness more than a crutch and mask. But let each person decide if it's too problematic for them]
4.0 out of 5 stars Something missing for me. 3 April 2014
By M. Hallahan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book but it took to long for me to dive in. I Loved Ryder, he was to me, one of the sexier BJ characters. His attitude, his words, his beauty in general, but it still wasn't enough to make this storyline hit me. I think maybe because for half of the book, he and Leah were apart, then they were at odds with each other. After a while I was so sick of her unnecessary secrets, then her being mad for him not trusting her secret-keeping self, I was like forget her already. When they did finally get it together I was pleased with their relationship, it just took to long to get there to me. Even the usually very enjoyable love scenes seemed a bit off (no fault to Ryder, he was sexy), it just seemed too explained at times, if that makes any sense. Still an enjoyable read but not my favorite.
