Destiny's Surrender | [Beverly Jenkins]

Destiny's Surrender

The child he didn't know he had...Andrew Yates has come to a decision: It's time to stop sowing those oats and start a family. But searching for a bride isn't as simple as he'd hoped, and many of the respectable women of his acquaintance feel...lacking. Then beautiful, feisty Wilhelmina "Billie" Wells arrives at the family ranch with a toddler in her arms, claiming Drew is the father! The woman he didn't know he loved...Billie had no choice but to show up at Destiny in search of Drew. For the sake of their child, she's willing to leave him with his father so the boy can have a better life, but then, before she can blink, she's saying "I do" in front of a preacher in a marriage of convenience.

Publisher's Summary

The child he didn't know he had...

Andrew Yates has come to a decision: It's time to stop sowing those oats and start a family. But searching for a bride isn't as simple as he'd hoped, and many of the respectable women of his acquaintance feel...lacking. Then beautiful, feisty Wilhelmina "Billie" Wells arrives at the family ranch with a toddler in her arms, claiming Drew is the father!

The woman he didn't know he loved...

Billie had no choice but to show up at Destiny in search of Drew. For the sake of their child, she's willing to leave him with his father so the boy can have a better life, but then, before she can blink, she's saying "I do" in front of a preacher in a marriage of convenience. All Billie and Drew have in common is the heat that brought them together, but can their sizzling passion lead to an everlasting love?

    "Pretty good"

    I thought this book was a great edition to the series. I was very pleased with the ending. I normally read everything that Ms. Jenkins writes. This was my first Audible listen so I had to get used to it but once I did I thoroughly enjoyed the ride!

    Story
    "Billie is Tough!"
    What does Thomas Penny bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Thomas Penny is a great narrator. I enjoy every book that he narrates. He covers accents well, and he can really bring a story to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really loved the fight scene. Billie was a character that had so much depth, and I am so glad that Ms. BJ decided to tell her story.


    Any additional comments?

    Andrew and Billie actually reminded me of people I know. Their story was very enjoyable. I liked the interactions between Drew and his son too. There were a lot of good components to this book.

    Story
    "Another sweet historical."

    I have been in lone with Beverly's historical romances since I received my first book in 2010 which was Topaz. I love Thomas Penny as the narrator. The only reason he didn't get 5 stars is because he should learn where the accent goes over the Spanish words other than that it would be a five. The story is so touching and no matter her background she wins him over. I read the book and as soon as the audible version came out I listen to it all over again. Can't wait for the third story. Happy reading!!!!!

    Story
    "Great writing Ms. Jenkins."

    I love must of Ms. Jenkins historical romance novels. Some of the narrates not so much. This one had multiple plots as do must of her books, With that said it was an easy page turner. her books are filled with romance as well as education... this is not a bargain but a really good buy. I would love to see more of her book on audio. Thomas Penny did a great job as well.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Destiny's Surrender to be better than the print version?

    No, I would consider them the same. The narrator was pretty good.

    Romance, suspenseful


    What about Thomas Penny’s performance did you like?

    The inflections in his voice! Loved them


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was good read not to sappy for me.

    Story
    "Expectations Met"

    Jenkins has become one of my favorite authors. There are millions of books out there. Many don't inhabit the quality of writing that Jenkins so eloquently displays in her writing. I've purchased all of Jenkins' titles that are available on Audible, and have listened to each 2 to 3 times. Needless to say, I'm a fan. The story of Drew and Billie was captivating. I listened intently as Mr. Penny delve into Destiny again telling the story of woman who fled in an effort to escape the trouble brought on by her madame's son. She shows up at Destiny with her son the night of his father's engagement party. With Drew's fury and Billie's desperation, I wondered if she should have gone. Thus, the story unfolds.....

    "Reminds me of her past wonderful work"

    I wasn't a huge fan of the first book in this series Destiny's Embrace. I bought this immediately when I saw Thomas Penny as the narrator. Please please Mr Penny keep reading. At any rate this book grabs your attention from the very beginning. I find myself smiling because this book reminds me of her great awesome writing like Topaz, Taming of Jessi Rose which are my all time favorites. Great job. Love it
