Synopsis

Married For Money

Raimond Le Veq needed to marry to gain his inheritance and restore the fortunes of the House of Le Veq, the proud Black New Orleans family whose wealth had been ravaged by the War Between the States. Still wounded by the double-cross of the only woman he ever came close to loving, he gave the choice of bride to his mother. But he never be expected that she would pick Sable Fontaine--the beautiful former slave he could not allow himself to trust again.

Freed By Passion

Betrayed and sold to a cruel neighbor, Sable did whatever it took escape. With the spirits of her royal African ancestors guiding her, she made a bold bid for freedom, and won. But along the way she had to hurt the charming Union Major Le Veq, who had romanced her and championed her. Now fate has brought them back together in a marriage of convenience. Can she convince Raimond she was never a Rebel spy, and that this time, she'd choose him above all else?

    Like a fine wine

    Just finished a re-read of this book, and I have to comment on the many times I thought to myself that I had forgotten how well written it was. I think many of us love Mrs. Jenkins' books so much that we tend to devour them whole on the first read, especially if we're hyped by the excitement of a new release. This time through, I was really able to appreciate the subtleties and the arc of the story. This was a love story about people who saw each other's flaws and loved anyway, who love in spite of wrongs. This a story of people who trusted their love, and in doing so, found their way to loving each other. I don't think I missed that the first time around, rather, I didn't fully appreciate it. To be fair, it's easy to miss because the book is filled with so many interesting characters to get to know and intriguing little plot twists. Not to mention, the action is set against a background of war-torn Atlanta and Reconstruction-era New Orleans. As an African-American, it's difficult not to be distracted by the wealth of historical info about our race, much of which will be new information to most people. But even so, the love shines through, underscored by themes of ancestry, legacy, continuity and progress. And it is this complex and intoxicating combination that makes Mrs. Jenkins the brightest constellation in my historical black fiction sky.
