Olivia Sterling is a 30 year old seamstress, who is forced to leave home with her parents in Chicago and travel out west when her father tries to force her to marry a business associate of his. She sells her shop and with the money opens another dress shop in an all black town called Henry Adams. While travelling there the coach is held up by handsome outlaw Neil July (brother to Teresa, of 'Wild Sweet Love') and his gang. For the first time in her life Olivia finds a man that she feels connected to but he's a criminal and its unlikely that their paths will cross again.
But Neil is just as captivated by Olivia as she is with him, but when he travels to her town to meet her she is the newly elected Mayor and she can hardly be a respectable leader in her community and be involved with a man on the wrong side of the law.
Ms Jenkins writes yet another engrossing story with a man who is a black seminole using his ill gotten gains to feed his hungry people let down by broken promises made by the US government. And a woman who is learning to be truly independant and liking it.

I am 65 years of age , and although some of the material is for our enjoyment , I truly appreciate the BLACK HISTORY that I did not gain in my most formidable years. Our history is wonderful and it provides a great deal of knowledge and understanding of who WE ARE and WHAT OUR ANCESTORS HAVE HAD TO ENDURE!
Love it! Please continue to write Ms Jenkins. My friend exposed me to your books and I am now on my 13th book.
May GOD continue to bless you, as you continue to stimulate READERS!
I would love for Two Shafts to have a story, and Preacher as well (nice twist for him in this story, by the way), but I guess Preacher is a little too righteous for that 'passion thing' - unless he marries the girl first. But not to worry, if a story is done for Preacher, Ms. Bev would definitely work it out.
Beverly Jenkins, you are the absolute best! Keep up the good work!
