This review is from: Winds of the Storm (Mass Market Paperback)
This novel had so much action, adventure, romance and humour packed into its pages; that while I was reading it I kept thinking what a great mini-series it would make.
Near the end of the American Civil war, spy Zahra Lafayette, known as the 'Butterfly', rescues Archer Le Veq. Eight years later she is sent by Harriet Tubman on one last mission to pose as a Madam and spy on white supremicists. Wearing a mask and using the name Domino she meets up with Archer Le Veq. He's attracted and intrigued but thinks she's a whore, and has no idea of her true identity.
Zahra doesn't have a very good opinion of the 'Gens de coleur' in general, and Le Veq is one. Though she does enjoy flirting with him she has a mission to complete, which threatens the health and wellbeing of her race. Zahra is a strong, resourceful character and the relationship between her and Le Veq is both hilarious and sweet. The plot is gripping and engrossing. I don't believe Ms Jenkins knows how to write a bad novel.
