Genre: Historical Romance, America
Material in the genre of African- American historical romance is not plentiful, but Jenkins is the pre-eminent voice. She delivers another gem with this first in her new Destiny series. Mariah is a force to be reckoned with, and the interplay between her and Logan is a joy to read. One minor distraction is the speed with which the two meet, fall in love and then marry. It may be a product of the times, but it is the only distracting element to the whole story because it is repeatedly referenced. Otherwise, enjoy! The tidbits of history imparted are always a welcome addition.
Mariah Cooper is a strong woman who takes her destiny into her own hands by moving from the unhappy home she shares with mother in Philadel- phia to the unknown “Wild West.” Accepting a position as housekeeper to Logan Yates is not what either of them imagined it would be. Butting heads from day one, the two find themselves drawn to each other — to the delight of Logan’s stepmother, Alanza. (AVON, Feb., 370 pp., $7.99)
