I had to DNF this book pretty soon after starting it and not because it was a bad book. Only because I had a hard time relating to either of the charactera, due simply to the fact that both of them are POC in the late 1880s. The writing style was wonderful and descriptive but just not for me :)

That first paragraph!!! Was it the sexiest opener I’ve read? Probably! I really enjoy Jenkins’s westerns and look forward to reading the rest of this series (out of order, or course, as is my habit)

A perfect novella! Beverly Jenkins sure packed a lot of character and plot into this 70-ish page novella!

This bodice ripper is set in New Orleans during the reconstruction period after the Civil War. Valinda Lacy has come south to teach the newly emancipated freedmen and their children. But just as she is making headway her school is destroyed by thugs. As she runs for her life, she meets Captain Drake LeVeq, one of the sons of a wealthy Black family who made their money some generations back by piracy. Drake, however, is an architect and builder, intent on helping the freedmen survive and thrive.

It's a typical romance with heaving bosoms, knees made weak by kisses, demure women and strong men who are talented and generous lovers. Valinda and Drake make a nice couple, and his family (mother and three brothers) fills out the cast of characters quite well. Jenkins added some interesting tidbits of information regarding this period in American history.

The action is fast, even if the plot is fairly predictable. This novel even includes a minor subplot involving two gay men.
