Start your review of Her Ebony (The Jeweled Ladies, #3)
A lovely stand-alone book in The Jeweled Ladies series. I came to this book as a new reader and didn't feel at all lost, and there was just enough about some of the other characters that I was intrigued about the rest of the series. The character voices are distinct, and their personalities arise believable from what we know of their past. The chemistry between the two is obvious and the dressmaking sessions give a great buildup to physical intimacy between them. Physical and sexual abuse are re ...more

There was nothing specifically *wrong* with this book, or its writing, or the editing. There was just nothing right about it either. Nothing new.

It was a historical romance set in the same fictional town as Their Emerald, in Brimstone just after slave trade had become illegal. That's particularly relevant in this addition to the series as one of its main characters, Abigail Whithall, is an ex-slave.

The second main character, and love interest, Miss Minerva Krenshaw, appears first in Their Emera
I loved the premise of this book as it was an interesting story to tell. Two women who are attracted to the same sex in Texas in the 1860's is surely worth a scandal for one and the noose for the other especially being of different racial backgrounds.

Minerva is the prickly schoolteacher who is used to being in the background unnoticed by any of the townspeople and that is the way she liked it. If she had been discovered, would people be able to see her true desires? That is what she thought so

Another great story

This is the second book in the Jeweled Ladies series that I have read and I can't wait to read the rest of the books.
This is the story of friendship, acceptance and love between the ex slave seamstress jewel and the prickly spinster schoolmistress. This is a relationship that has difficulties on both sides and as you read you find the warmth of the characters shining through.
Bring on the next book

I really only read this because I needed an “easy” read and I’m surprised that I actually enjoyed it. I’m not going to read the series but I’d recommend this to anyone looking for a short intense romance.

I like that this book tackled some unusual issues for a story set in the old west. An interracial, lesbian relationship is definitely something you don't see everyday in a typical western romance. But in the Jeweled Ladies series, everybody gets a happy ending, no matter what their circumstances. Just because the ladies are whores in the finest brothel in the west doesn't mean that the owner Mistress doesn't care about them and try to help them get what they want out of life. Sometimes that mean ...more
