ARC Review – REBEL by Beverly Jenkins

 

The first novel in USA Today Bestselling Author Beverly Jenkins’s compelling new series follows a Northern woman south in the chaotic aftermath of the Civil War . . .

Valinda Lacey’s mission in the steamy heart of New Orleans is to help the newly emancipated community survive and flourish. But soon she discovers that here, freedom can also mean danger. When thugs destroy the school she has set up and then target her, Valinda runs for her life—and straight into the arms of Captain Drake LeVeq.

As an architect from an old New Orleans family, Drake has a deeply personal interest in rebuilding the city. Raised by strong women, he recognizes Valinda’s determination. And he can’t stop admiring—or wanting—her. But when Valinda’s father demands she return home to marry a man she doesn’t love, her daring rebellion draws Drake into an irresistible intrigue.

Review:

5 Stars
There is just no one else like Ms. Bev. I can’t see a new release from her without snapping it up immediately. I haven’t read her whole backlist, but I devoured the Old West series and have recommended Indigo to probably every person I’ve talked to about romance.
This book is the first in the new Women Who Dare series and it does not disappoint. I love the setting of this one, Reconstruction Era New Orleans. It’s beautifully researched and detailed. It’s full of powerful emotion, the struggle of race relations following the Civil War, and, of course, a gorgeous love story. The emotions are real and painful, but there is humor throughout. I was in tears at the end of this book and cheered Valinda and Drake on the entire time. Love love love.
