Publisher's Summary

A perilous pursuit...

Kate Love is an ambitious reporter on the trail of a swindler who has been preying on elderly Blacks. But when her investigation leads her into danger, she is snatched by Dix Wildhorse, a Black Seminole marshal from Oklahoman’s Indian country. Kate has no choice but to flee with the daring knight her father sent to rescue her. Despite the warm simmering fire Dix’s bronzed, muscled embrace ignites, she is determined to hold on to her independence, challenging him at every turn. Yet even as their battle of wills intensifies, the heat of their passion blazes with unmatched fury...a wildfire of love that can only be answered in the sweet ecstasy of surrender.

Some history I did not know!

I love the historical fabric of these novels. Having had a full blooded Cherokee great-grandmother, I am reminded of just how intertwined Black of African descent and Indigenous Peoples of this land really are. I have read some accounts of the things done to our Indigenous brothers and sisters yet never had anything indepth to feast on until now. I know that this novel is a work of fiction however, it adds a history of the things that happened to our Indigenous brothers and sisters that the history books have left out. Much like the many things about our own history that has been left out of the history books. The July and WildHorse families seem to have ancestral moorings in my soul each time I hear the story. It is most disturbing how they used many members of our enslaved ancestors and our Indigenous brothers and sisters to help them to fight for their freedom from England yet they refused to give us our own freedoms. They used every trick and manner of deceit they could come up with to keep our freedoms from becoming full fledged even until this very day. Thank you Ms. Jenkins for lifting up these ancestoral remembrances for those of us who have not known. Great story and the love that is shown for the characters and our peoples warms my heart very much!

Lor-ellie.

Couldn't get past Lor-ellie, it threw everything off. I bought Something like love also and had to check, and yes she calls her Lor-ellie in it also. Bummer 😕

Lorrelly

My only complaint regarding this audiobook is that I wish someone had corrected her pronunciation of the name Lorelei (Law*ruh*lie).

I need at least a third of my money back.

This story is just a rewrite of several other stories Mrs Jenkins has already published. If you read or listened to Always and Forever that was the first third of this story. It got a little better around chapter 19 and ended much like her other stories. This is the result of writing to meet a contract obligation instead of writing with passion.

A Sweet and Fun Western Romp

I had a great time listening to this story for my book club. This is my second Beverly Jenkins and it was such fun. Dix and Katherine were at each other's throats but also it was light-hearted in a lot of ways. They start off with a bang and then hit the wagon trail together. This was kind of a Year-in-the-Life kind of tale. The beginnings of their marriage and the adventures they get in to.

Dix was a swoony hero and Kate was headstrong and fierce. They are both more into each other than they want to be and watching them come to terms with it was so beautiful.

The ending was a bit rushed and kind of felt like the whole kitchen sink was thrown in, but it didn't dim my enjoyment one bit.

I can't wait to read more of Jenkins beautiful stories.

Fall in love with a Marshall

Whenever you read or listen to as story by Beverly Jenkins, sit back and relax. I've read this story many times but listening on audiobooks brought new life. Kudos to the person who read the story

Delightful

Love this book and the narrator did it justice. Have loved this book for numerous years, hearing it on audiobook didn't take away from how I have imagined the characters over 20 years.

Excellent historical romantic novel

Thoroughly enjoyed this work. I learned so much about our history. It's exciting and wonderful to be part of this history as an American Black. loved Dix, Katherine, Miss Sunshine and Judge Parker.

excellent and captivating

I was so pleased to see the release of Topaz on audible, as it is my favourite book and the story that turned me onto Beverly Jenkins as an author.

The narrator really brought the characters to life thoroughly enjoyed.
