New Release & Review: Tempest by Beverly Jenkins!


4 and half stars

I was SO ready for Regan’s story after finishing Breathless – in Breathless, Regan surprised me when she taught her sister about contraceptive sponges and then decided she was going to be a mail order bride. I knew I was in for a ride with Tempest.

OKAY BUT I did not expect Regan to shoot Colton! I know it’s laid out in the blurb, but I didn’t read the blurb. I just saw “Beverly Jenkins. Book #3 in the Old West series” and I was sold. I love her boldness. She and Colton were perfect together.

Some historical romance authors are like 90% romance & 10% history. Some are the opposite. Some, like Miss Bev, are perfectly balanced. I love learning about the Old West in this series and the lives of those who lived and loved there. Romance and fiction in general allow authors to teach us about forgotten histories. People and populations that have been overlooked by the history books. Most of the history I was taught growing up was the history of white dudes. I love Dukes and Earls as much as any other historical reader, but traveling to the Old West and learning about the lives of People of Color there is refreshing.

From USA Today Bestselling Author Beverly Jenkins comes a new novel in a mesmerizing series set in the Old West, where an arranged marriage becomes a grand passion . . .

What kind of mail-order bride greets her intended with a bullet instead of a kiss? One like Regan Carmichael—an independent spirit equally at home in denims and dresses. Shooting Dr. Colton Lee in the shoulder is an honest error, but soon Regan wonders if her entire plan to marry a man she’s never met is a mistake. Colton, who buried his heart along with his first wife, insists he only wants someone to care for his daughter. Yet Regan is drawn to the unmistakable desire in his gaze.

Regan’s far from the docile bride Colton was expecting. Still, few women would brave the wilds of Wyoming Territory for an uncertain future with a widower and his child. The thought of having a bold, forthright woman like Regan in his life—and in his arms—begins to inspire a new dream. And despite his family’s disapproval and an unseen enemy, he’ll risk all to make this match a real union of body and soul.
