This gem of a novel by Ashley Carter may be one of the best kept secrets in the "steamy interracial" genre, of all times. Carter picks up where the originators - (Onstott & Horner),- left off. This talented author raises the bar to an unequaled level of sensuality, exploiting the incredibly hot topic of black male/white female sexuality to the outer limits. What a writer, and what a fabulously sensuous novel. A must read for anyone interested in this controversial, super hot topic!

In this second book of the Blackoaks series, Carter tells the story of Blackoaks plantation as it is now run by Styles Kenric in the wake of the elder Baynard's passing and the younger Baynard's flight to the seminary. Money troubles, incompetence, and his wife's hatred cause Styles to become even more of a jerkface than he already was, and all sorts of evil goes down as a result of it. The bulk of the book concerns Styles' wife running off with the Yankee tutor Hunt Campbell, which humiliating fact causes Styles' to plot & carry out revenge.

Styles Kenric is something of a cartoonish villain, but Carter managed to make me hate him rather than roll my eyes at the over-the-topness of his behaviour. What he does to his wife and the Fulani slave Blade is sad and vile in the extreme, even if it is melodramatic to the point where it was hard to suspend disbelief.

The storytelling is top-notch, especially Blade's mission to New Orlean's to fetch the master's wife. Unlike Master of Blackoaks, I found the conclusion of this book to be satisfying- aren't we all suckers for (relatively) happy endings?- and made me hardly able to wait to get started on the next book in the series.

i have always liked and read as much as i could about the antebellum South. Kyle Onstott, Lance Horner and Ashley Carter are 3 of my favorite authors.

Words do not describe how absolutely twisted this book is. But, if you like this type of genre, you will like this book. But, don't get me started on how little Carter knows of history. This book takes place around 1842. He includes a character killed in one of his other books in 1822(Baxter Simon of the Golden Stud). Gee Ashley, you made him rise from the dead. Again, if you like the genre, you'll like this book.
