Book Description

“Beverly Jenkins has reached superstardom.”

Detroit Free Press

 

Beverly Jenkins enthralls romance readers once again with Midnight—a heart-soaring African American historical romance novel set during America’s turbulent Revolutionary War. A story of passion and dangerous intrigue, Midnight unites a beautiful undercover spy—the notorious “Lady Midnight” who’s helping the rebels fight for a nation’s independence from the British—with a reckless and dashing adventurer on a mission of personal vengeance. Exciting, thrilling, wonderfully sensual—and alive with fascinating history—Midnight is further proof why Beverly Jenkins is one of the world’s premier authors of African American romantic fiction.

From the Back Cover

In a time of peril, she fears nothing—except the forbidden passions of her heart.

In Boston, revolution is in the wind—yet none would ever suspect Faith Kingston of treason. But under cover of darkness, the beautiful daughter of a Tory tavern owner becomes thenotorious spy “Lady Midnight,” passing valuable secrets to the rebels. Dedicated to fighting British tyranny, she’ll let nothing distract her— until a dark, mesmerizing stranger enters her life.

A reckless, worldly adventurer, Nicholas Grey has returned to troubled Massachusetts seeking revenge for the death of his rebel father. He suspects a local innkeeper, but it’s the man’sbreathtaking, ebony-skinned daughter who has truly captured his interest. Nicholas burns for the sensuous, secretive lady—and Faith cannot mask her own blazing desires. But when destinyunites their causes, the passion that draws Midnight into Nicholas’s arms is as dangerous as it is glorious—and it could spell disaster for them both.

1.0 out of 5 stars What Happened?! December 30, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been an avid reader of Beverly Jenkins' books since 'Before the Dawn'. So when 'Midnight' was released I rushed out to pick up my copy. I read all my books from other authors first because I knew that Ms. Jenkins' work is always spicy, hot, informative, passionate, and a page turner. I could not have been more disappointed. The book started out great; however, the end was so disappointing because it seemed rushed. The ending didn't really seem to go with the story line, in addition the book seemed to focus more on the history of the war than the actual characters. It was a lackluster performance in my opinion and her editor should have sent her back to rewrite the ending. I know that Ms. Jenkins' work is always OUTSTANDING so to read this was frustrating to say the least!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars powerful historical romance October 28, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1775 Boston, whether you remain a Tory or a rebel, everyone whispers revolt. Nicholas Grey comes home to find his father Primus dead; the British arrested and executed him last December after he met with the notorious "Lady Midnight."

He seeks vengeance for his dad's death. To achieve his objective he must start with Lady Midnight, but has no idea who she is. Nicholas believes a Tory tavern owner is behind his dad's death. However, he is attracted to the innkeeper's daughter Faith Kingston. She is a fierce supporter of freedom though she conceals her seditious activities that support Sons of Liberty. Faith is attracted to Nicholas, but knows to trust no one even if her heart says otherwise.

Once again, the great Beverly Jenkins provides a powerful historical romance as she brings her uncanny sense of time and place to showcase this time the role the Blacks played in the American Revolution. The lead couple is a terrific pairing of a worldly adventurer on a home mission of vengeance and a freedom lover who does more than drink tea as she risks her life as a spy. Her latest work affirms that Ms. Jenkins is one of the best historical writers today with a unique refreshing look at Americana through a perspective not seen enough in the sub-genre.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best! November 4, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was really excited when this book came out, because I love, love, love Mrs Jenkin's work! I will have to say that I was very dissappointed with this book. I won't spoil it for the rest of you, but I felt that this book was rushed. This is not Mrs Jenkin's normal work, but nevertheless I would still recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beverly Does It Again! November 21, 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really LOVED this book and so glad that I didn't take the previous bad reviews word for it. It took me more than 2 months to finally order it and while reading I kept dreading the "bad story" or "terrible ending" that other reviewers had mentioned. In the end I closed the book with regrets that the story was over, I loved it! I love how Ms. Jenkins creates new towns and people that resonate with me for weeks after reading the book. Her story of life & love in Tory-controlled Boston prior to the Revolutionary War highlights yet another part of black history that I knew nothing about. The love story between Faith and Nick was great, the drama was great (ugh her father was AWFUL) and once again she created townspeople I could picture knowing and 18th century mores & customs that were fascinating (bathing wearing a shift to avoid nudity?). I enjoyed this story very much and now that I've read ALL of Ms. Jenkins' historical romances I am so sad!! What will I read now?

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Reason Why I am a Fan of Beverly Jenkins November 7, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Whenever I see that Jenkins has a new book coming out, my excitement elevates. I am impressed and beyond satisfied with "Midnight." Jenkins has stepped into another time period in African American history and she does it with such grace and accuracy. She is the best historical romance novelist of our time!! Hands down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Passion! November 1, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have been following Mrs. Jenkins' writing since 2003. I was on board the USS Nimitz then and I had at least another seven more months until my cruise was complete. I order all her books and read all of them in three months. Midnight has a great storyline. Faith and Nick are passionate characters that anyone would love to be. I could not put the book down. I plan on keeping this in my collection until the end of my days.

3.0 out of 5 stars not an official rating yet November 10, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Currently reading this book and it is taking me sometime to get into the story. The others by this author always hook me from the first line. It seems this tale is a lot more focused on the history of the time in which the story takes place instead of the romance between the main characters. I received this book as a gift and the woman who gave it to me finished it in two days. She really enjoyed it and promises not to spoil it for me, though she says I will be reintroduced to a certain fantasy man of mine lol. We will see. I recommend this book if only for the sole purpose of being a BJ historical romance collector.
Will hopefully change rating when finished reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book October 27, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ms. Jenkins did it again! I loved the book. As with most of Ms. Jenkins' historical romances, you learn alot about African Americans history while being captivated with fictional characters. The characters Nick & Faith was enchanting. If you love historical romances...this would be a great read.
