I really loved this book. Dixon Wild horse was something else. Beverly Jenkins has the uncanny ability to incorporate American/African American History into some of the most outrageous plots and thus create a historical but often witty love story. Unlike her other books such as 'Night Song' and 'Indigo', which were anchored in pre-Civil War or post-Civil War African American history, 'Topaz' opens with a reporter breaking into her fiancé's safe in order to retrieve evidence of his wrong doings. Of course she is caught, dressed as a man and the fiancé plays the ever more deceitful ogre that he is. But then along comes Dixon Wild horse, her Black Knight in silky dark brown muscled armor. Of course, she's grateful for the rescue until she discovers she's promised in marriage to Mr. Wild horse in order to save her father from a federal prison sentence. And thus begins to fight, the humor and the romance.

Dix and Katherine are such a wonderful, exciting couple. How can anyone not fall in love with Dix? He is everything a woman wants in a man. Katherine is great too. She is ambitious, independent, and beautiful. This book combined all of my interests in westerns, mysteries, black history, and romance. Kate Love's independence and sharp wit was wonderfully tempered by the magnanimous Marshall Dix Wild horse. "Topaz" reminds me of "The Taming of the Shrew", but with more sass and flare. I laughed out loud, cried at times, and turned each page with my breath bated in anticipation. I learned so much about the lesser-known people of the western frontier of the late 1800's. Beverly Jenkins is truly a scholar and a gifted storyteller. There are even historical references at the back as well. I would recommend this to any reader!

Beverly Jenkins has done it again! This book was terrific! As always she captures love, passion and adventure all in one great story. This book has the stubborness and solice attitude that many women need to have today. Dix had all the courage and will of the "Black Men" of his time. Not to many people knew of black Marshal's, and thanks to Mrs Jenkins we know. Dix showed Katherine how much passion could embrace your heart. Instead he fell in love to! Thank You Mrs. Jenkins for this wonderful book. Maybe for the fifth book Beverly could add the characters form all four books and have them come together. Since in this book Chase and Dix know each other how about making them all be friends and help each other, with full detailed passion feeled adventures! How about it? Remeber to dedicate this 5th (Best Seller)to me! I truly admire you as a woman and a great story teller. You bring all my fantasies into one adventure.....
