Books by Beverly Jenkins

Forbidden

Beverly Jenkins has been an autobuy for me ever since I was first introduced to her books as a reviewer. Since our prompt this month calls for reading an author with more than 1 book in our TBR, it was an easy call for me. I tend to accumulate books far more rapidly than I read them (I know, I know) ...

A
Tempest

Who hasn't read a Beverly Jenkins book? Her stories are as memorable as the author herself, and I am delighted to have this opportunity to review one of her novels. Tempest is a western mail-order bride story, and I'm in awe of the heroine's willingness to start a new life in a new land all by herse ...

Chasing Down a Dream

Chasing Down a Dream is the eighth book in the popular Blessings series set in Henry Adams, Kansas, a fictional town representing the townships founded by freed slaves after the Civil War. In the first novel, Bring on the Blessings, Henry Adams had fallen onto such hard times that the town lead ...

Breathless

I have read very few novels that feature African Americans as both hero and heroine, and I know very little of Black U.S. history after the Civil War, so I was keen to read Breathless, which is set in the Arizona Territory in the 1880s. The novel is the second volume in a trilogy, but everything yo ...

Forbidden

Forbidden is the first book I’ve read by Beverly Jenkins. I’m always interested in a good Western romance, and since I knew Ms. Jenkins has received good reviews before, I snapped this one up when I saw it was available. Based on this book, I expect I’ll be returning to read more of Ms. Jenkin ...

Destiny's Embrace

I've long had a soft spot for Beverly Jenkins' historicals. She tends to put a lot more history into the romance than many authors, and one could never accuse her of writing wallpaper. With Destiny's Embrace, she starts a new series in 19th century California with a romance between two very strong-m ...

Midnight

I enjoyed Midnight a great deal. The book has an interesting plot and great characters. However, reader be warned, it is as much a history lesson as it is a romance. Nicholas Grey has returned home to the Colonies after spending time abroad to find that his father has been hung as a traitor. It ...

Captured

Sometimes, when I read a book by an author I normally enjoy, I realize partway through that I am going to have to put together a review that pains me to write. This is exactly what happened to me as I read Captured. I have read several of Beverly Jenkins' books so I know she is a talented author. Un ...

Jewel

The rather implausible premise of Jewel is mitigated somewhat by the chemistry between the main characters, and the level of detailed historical information on the black press in America. The Marriage of Convenience is my favorite plotline; I have seen many variations on the theme, but even for all ...

Deadly Sexy

I have long been a fan of Beverly Jenkins, but I have to say that Deadly Sexy, while at times entertaining, is not one of her best books. <!-- var browName = navigator.appName; var SiteID = 1; var ZoneID = 4; var browDateTime = (new Date()).getTime(); if (browName=='Netscape') { docu ...
