By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 14 Nov. 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
There's adult action from the start of this historical romance as call girl Wilhemina Wells enjoys the patronage of a well-off man in the thriving new town of San Francisco. The lovely young woman had few choices in life when she arrived on the train from Kansas, so she's making a living any way she can. Drew Yates, a lawyer, treats her well and even takes her to the opera, but she's realistic enough to know that he'll marry into the business society and never speak to her again.

The bordello in the 'Barbary Coast' district is run by a Creole lady, who provides girls of colour to the prominent citizens. Billie finds herself expecting, and doesn't know who the father is. She's determined to have the baby and give it to her madam to sell for adoption. She has some leeway but girls can be found floating in the Bay if they give trouble, so she has to knuckle down to wash laundry, and go to live with a midwife near the whale oil rendering plant.

Drew meanwhile has been off visiting fine old Spanish families. His family is a Spanish-American blend, this being the easiest way to prove ownership of their land, Destiny Ranch, and he's under pressure from his mother Senora Alanza to marry. He meets Rosaline at a ball. Senora Ruiz will allow him to court her daughter for a year, under the strict eye of a duenna, before an engagement. He's looked for Billie, but nobody will tell him where she is....

Perennial double standards mean that a man can walk in and out of brothels. The contrast with Spanish society in this multicultural story delves into the history of that part of the world very well, as any lawyers who were not white were being disbarred and Spanish land claims ignored. I also liked the easy writing style and identification with the characters.

Destiny's Surrender was an enjoyable historical romance that I found really entertaining despite a few small problems.

The biggest issue with this book is that it does nothing new in the genre. I felt like it was a little too predictable and it wasn't hard to see how this was all going to end. I still enjoyed it despite that because it is a story line I have not read in a while and because I liked the tone of the authors writing. I thought Beverly Jenkins world building was strong and I had no problem getting lost in these pages and despite knowing what was coming I found this hard to put down.

I really enjoyed the characters. Billie was a great character and there was little I disliked about her. She was a great mother and was brave and smart. I liked Drew a little less and at first struggled with him but he soon grew on me.

The romance was sweet but most of the chemistry was developed before this book began which was a shame.

Destiny's Surrender wasn't perfect but I really did enjoy it and though it was a good historical romance.

Beverly Jenkins' newest book, "Destiny's Surrender" is one of her greatest among her great.
From the very first word on the page I was hooked and could not put the book down.
I finished the book in one sitting from 1030 pm until 0230 that morning.
Educational, Inspiring, Historical, and did I mention Sizzling Hot!
You got to read this book!

HASH(0x90813744) out of 5 stars Billie Kicks Tail 24 Oct. 2013
By Beverly Diehl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was my first Beverly Jenkins, and if you're going to pop your cherry with an author, why not do it with a screaming orgasm in the very first line?

Billie is a whore and a total bad-a$$, and she's apologizing for neither. Love that she's an emotionally strong person, not just a sexy heroine. She gets herself into trouble by doing two things: falling in love with a client, and deciding to keep the child she's pregnant with, instead of aborting, though there's no guarantee it belongs to her favorite client.

There were some things about this book I didn't love: use of literary cliches throughout, but mostly, that Drew was a weak hero. *spoiler alert* He was marrying Rosa because Mama wanted him to, and when that blew up, he married Billie against his own inclinations, he accepted being virtually disbarred because of his color, and then in the end... ugh! You know a serious bad guy is after your wife and child, dontcha think you might want to keep a guard on them? Also, I thought it unrealistic that the baddie would leave Mariah and her daughter totally unmolested when he'd otherwise stopped at nothing to destroy those who previously got in his way, down to Emmaline's maid?

I did like the way the storyline didn't follow "normal" romance storylines, with the hero falling in love after the marriage, and the way Billie did not let Drew off the hook with his parenting responsibilities. Loved Alanza and her fierce defense of her family, and the B-romance with her and Max.

HASH(0x90813648) out of 5 stars Worth the wait 6 Oct. 2013
By Katriz - Published on Amazon.com

I waited a year for this book & I read it in less than a day. I was like a kid on Christmas; I couldn't wait to get into this story. Anticipation was killing me. These characters were top notch right along with the July's, Blake's, Wildhorses, & the preacher. Who would imagine that a whore would be accepted & loved by a wealthy, upstanding family? I'll tell you who... the same woman that wed a train robber to a female mayor, a banker to an outlaw. The woman who dreamt up a female train robber; Beverly Jenkins never disappoints. Drew & Billie's story is one for the ages. It provides hope & shows that love can conquer all... even prostitution. Another stellar read from an amazing author. Can't wait to read the next Yates brother's story featuring a female pirate. Hears to waiting another year for a captivating read from my favorite author.

I enjoyed Drew and Billie' s story story much I couldn't put my Kindle down! I am a huge fan of Beverly Jenkins. I have read all of her books. I was ready to dislike the arrogant pretty boy Drew. He won me over by becoming a wonderful husband and father. I can't wait to read Alanza's and Max' s story. Billie's explanation of a woman's "screaming" was priceless. Thanks Ms B for another great story. You never disappoint!!!
