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?

    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!!!!!

    "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
    "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

    "EXCELLENT JUST EXCELLENT!!!!!!"

    Thomas Penny gives this story the finesse it needs and makes it easy to visualize everything happening in this adventurous, beautiful, action packed love story! This story is hands down my favorite. I read it twice on my own and now on audible and it made me love it even more!

    Story
    "Indigo and Destiny's Surrender TIE for 1st Place!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This audio book is an excellent read/listen! The Billy and Drew are evenly matched and their relationship is compelling! Billy has a strong sense of self...Drew overcomes social prejudices and expectations... to make their relationship work...


    What did you like best about this story?

    The heroine is a "lady of the evening" with a story.... the dashing hero... has plenty of attitude! Listening to the novel, I remembered Billy and then Mary Magdalen ... and read on. The characters are well developed; this includes many of the minor characters too.As always, I enjoyed Beverly Jenkins' mention of history, and the characters in the novel, all of whom had a part in the shaping of the West .


    What does Thomas Penny bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His narration of the novel is outstanding! Thomas Penny brings each of the many characters to life. His interpretation and understanding of each character is excellent! He even expressed a great sense of humor with some of the characters' : banter between brothers, lovers, etc.


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

    Yes! I laughed and had to hear Penny read the narration again and still laughed.I felt sadness for Billy, especially in some of the more violent scenes, but was happy with the outcomes.

    "Beauty and boldness"

    This is a story of an unfathomed love. Billie and Drew hail from different worlds yet a very interesting chain of events changes their lives in ways unimaginable. Beverly Jenkins has done it again with this tale of beauty and boldness. I loved this one too. I'm on to the next one!
