Sarita is my favorite character of all books that I've read. She was not materialistic nor was she intimidated by Mykal or his wealth.
Everything is romantic, believable and unpredictable. Sarita made Mykal love her by being just who she is. No pretence.
I can't recommend this book enough. It's worth buying. I'm not into reading books over and over again - but this one is worth it! I've read it 3 times and never get bored with the storyline.

I also loved the way she made the hero and heroine in this novel the descendants of heroes and heroines of her previous novels. I can't wait for her next book.

Title: A Deal with the Devil
Beverly Jenkins takes a break from historical romance novels to show her versatility with a modern suspense romance in The Edge of Midnight. She does not disappoint in providing fun characters in Sarita Grayson and Mykal Chandler. The story tackles the effects of poverty and drugs in the inner city and one very determined young lady to make a difference in her neighborhood.
Poor as a church mouse, Sarita Grayson is the director of the community center located on the lower eastside of Detroit. When it looks as if she will lose the center, she takes on a dangerous assignment given to her by a small time drug dealer. Extremely handsome and rich, Mykal Chandler is the handsome brother of the Mayor of Detroit. He is an architect by trade, but his nighttime activities are more dangerous. While out on their respective secret missions Sarita and Mykal have their first explosive encounter. Their second meeting, arranged by Sarita's friend and Mykal's half brother Saint, is a life changing encounter. After accepting his proposition, Mykal gives Sarita the opportunity to see herself as a beautiful woman and awakens a passion in her that she did not know she possessed.
The characters in Ms Jenkins' novel are fun. Their actions are genuine and the conversations very real. Ms Jenkins has a way of incorporating conflict resolution and problem solving into the story without making the female character appear weak and cowardly. If you have never read a romance by Beverly Jenkins, then this is a good one to start. However, I would recommend getting your hands on every historical romance novel she has written; you will not be disappointed.
