One of My Favorites

This is only my third novel by Beverly Jenkins. And she has yet to disappoint! I've read Night Song, Vivid and now Indigo. I enjoyed the heated romance between Hester and Galen. The chemistry between Galen and Hester was so charged, they couldn't help but fall for each other. Their story just leapt off the pages. Galen was so used to being able to get any woman he wanted and he was so undone when Hester constantly told him 'No', he just couldn't help but fall in love with her and her innocence. It was wonderful to read about how much they were able to love each other. Considering the times they were living in with slavery and many arranged marriages taking place, and especially considering the 'Road' work they both did, yet with all of that taking place around them, they were able to find true love. When I first heard about the Black Daniel and Hester in Vivid, I thought now that's a story I would love to read. And now that I have, all I can say is WOW! It was a real page turner. It had me LOL and crying at the same time. And at times I laughed so hard I cried. I also enjoyed many of the other characters in the story, especially Raymond LeVeq and his brothers. I enjoyed the comraderie and the loyalty they shared with Galen, which extended to Hester once she became part of his life. Hope to read more about some of these characters in future novels. My only problem with the story was that like all books it had to come to an end, and as good as the ending was, it just ended way too soon for me. Thanks for sharing Beverly Jenkins.

Porsche Arterberryy you absolutely must read Through the Storm, which is Raymond LeVeq's story...right up on par with Indigo...

Shawnette Thanks for the 4-1-1...I'm up-to-date on all Mrs. Jenkins' historical romances...and I love each and everyone...but Indigo and Topaz are by far my favorites...but I also do so love those LeVeq men...thanks for sharing...I can't wait for her new one Night Hawk to come out the end of this month...Happy Reading :-)
