Publisher's Summary

A strong-willed beauty finds herself in the arms of the handsome drifter from her past in this second book in the sizzling series set in the Old West, from USA Today best-selling author Beverly Jenkins.

As manager of one of the finest hotels in Arizona Territory, Portia Carmichael has respect and stability - qualities sorely missing from her harsh childhood. She refuses to jeopardize that by hitching herself to the wrong man. Suitors are plentiful, but none of them has ever looked quite as tempting as the family friend who just rode into town, and none has looked at her with such intensity and heat.

Duchess. That's the nickname Kent Randolph gave Portia when she was a young girl. Now she's a stunning, intelligent woman - and Kent has learned his share of hard lessons. After drifting through the West, he's learned the value of a place to settle down, and in Portia's arms he's found that and more. But convincing her to trust him with her heart, not just her passion, will be the greatest challenge he's known - and one he intends to win.

A Lesson Needed to be taught

I always enjoy reading Miss Beverly Jenkins stories. They have so much black history I didn't know about.

Love her books

I really enjoyed this story although I couldn't get past the narrators voice. It seemed like she used the same voice for each character and it threw me off. Good read as always...

I adore this series

I loved being a part of the Portia and Kent love story. They were a joy to discover. Her insistence at keeping him at arm length was funny and sweet, and their falling in love with each other was steamy and passionate. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the narration by Ms Staunton. Bravo...again.

Great continuation

I like the book and the continuation of the story’s characters. The main problem I had was when the narrator tried to do the different accents. It was distracting. Other than that it was pretty good. Can’t wait to read the next installment! I already have it preordered

Excellent!

loved it. I found this book to be entertaining. It was simple and at times predictable and had a happy ending. Just what I needed to unwind before sleeping. The narrator WAS fantastic. Her voice was so warm and soothing yet filed with so much expression. I felt this book was perfectly suited to her and that she was enjoying the book right along with me. This book is filled with passion that I did not expect and I must say a few times it took my breath away. overall a wonderful break from everyday stresses.
