Tempest Review #BeverlyJenkinsBooks

Sorry it’s been a while but I have been reading, I took up knitting recently, and I am preparing for this NaNoWriMo thing.

I finished reading the final installment in the Rhine Fontaine/OldWest Series. It was so

good and it got me wondering about some of the historical events I never learned about in school.

Here’s a blurb from Amazon and find my reaction below!

“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.”

As for romance and endearing moments that is classic Beverly Jenkins, this book scores high. There were several pivotal moments that reached my heart, like when Aunt Minnie makes little Anna(Regan’s stepdaughter) believe she is the cause of her biological mother’s death.

Then there is the sad state of affairs of what happened to the Chinese in Rock Springs. The author was kind enough to offer additional information in the back of the book and she encourages us, readers, to learn more about it as well.

Overall a good book and if I were to give the series any stars at all, on average I would say about a 4.5.

Have you read any good books lately?
