While most women can think of better things happening to them rather than kidnapping and having their life threatened, if you have to go through it you might as well go through it with Galen Anthony St. Martin; Saint to those who are Beverly Jenkins' fans. The Edge of Dawn is Beverly Jenkins eleventh book and her second in her contemporary romances. That is right ladies, Saint has his own story.

A prominent Michigan doctor is murdered. When his daughter Narice comes home to lay him to rest, she finds that his murder was not an accident and she has three groups of people searching for a North African Diamond that her father hid. Those who killed her father snap her up but before their interrogation she is saved by her own "Saint". Narice and Saint together venture to find the must sought after diamond, but had no idea that they would find a much-denied love.

This novel is hot hot hot! Beverly Jenkins sizzles the pages, with lust, intrigue, and her signature style of adding real true to life African American history. Narice and Saint are one of the hottest couples since his ancestors, Galeno and Hester (you Beverly fans know what I am talking about). When I read Ms. Jenkins first contemporary novel I enjoyed it but not as much as her historical romances. Well, with the sophomore effort in contemporary romance she has removed any doubt that she can can hold her own in that genre as well. Beverly Jenkins fan she has knocked the ball out of the park with this one. Newcomers, welcome to Beverlyland.

Ms Jenkins has done it again. Even when not writing historicals she is giving lessons into the rich African American legacy that is an integrel part of America's history.

The mysterious Galen Anthony "Saint" St Martin, a self proclaimed mercenary finds himself pitted against an old enemy in his quest to find the Eye of Sheba. Teamed with the beautiful Narice Jordan, founder and CEO of Jordan Academy a school for children of the elite and daughter of the Eyes Keeper. Saint never suspected this assignment would not only have his life in danger but his heart as well.

Narice is kidnapped not once but twice after burying her father who died in a suspicious house fire. Saint discovers the hard way there is alot more to the headmistress than her file indicates as he chases the former track star through the streets of Detroit. Trying to convince Narice her safety is his priority as they prepare to meet The Majesty is the cause of some very funny moments between the pair.

Using the quilt her father left as their road map to find the treasured Eye. Saint and Narice become one anothers salvation against armed helicopters, car chases, laced darts and syringes as their lives are constantly endangered and they get closer to finding the Eye. As well as closer to realizing the full depth of their attraction.

Narice is no screaming female waiting for her galant hero to rescue her. But, she can't ignore her need for the handsome, shaded cheetah. Saint's admiration and reverence for the fearless strength of this classy woman who's not afraid to admit her faults grows along with his emotions he trys to protect.

Great secondary characters, Uncle Willie and Arnold don't play, Jesse and James really don't play.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
After burying her father, thirty-seven years old Narice Jordan takes a taxi to the Detroit Airport so she can fly to her Baltimore home. However, the driver abducts her demanding she tell him what her dad did with the "Eye of Sheba" diamond. Narice insists she knows nothing. Anthony "Saint" St. Martin arrives to rescue Narice, but he and the driver Arthur Ridley know he each other. Ridley warns Narice not to trust the Saint as he will take her to edge, but eventually dump her once he achieves his objective, the diamond.

Narice did not need the warning as she trusts no man even as the Saint treats her nice and she is attracted to him. Still she knows he has an agenda that obviously ties back to the missing diamond that Ridley insisted her father stole. As Narice insists she knows nothing, she and the Saint fall in love, but can she trust him with her heart and perhaps her life since the diamond is his obvious target.

Known for her incredible historical novels, Beverly Jenkins has effortlessly switched gears to the romantic suspense genre with this tense thriller, her second sub-genre offering (see at THE EDGE OF MIDNIGHT). The tale is action packed, provides interesting Black history tidbits, and stars two wonderful protagonists. Though Saint is a bit stereotyped as an action antihero, readers will appreciate his role as a rare in novels African-American champion while Narice brings freshness to the fast-paced plot. As expected, Ms. Jenkins provides the audience with a fabulous thriller.

The Edge of Dawn was a good and fast-paced read. I read this 372-page book in a day. It kept my attention from page one to 372. This much anticipated book was worth the wait. Saint showed another side of himself.

I cannot wait to see his brother Drake's story and also see how the brothers are tied together. Going from historical to contemporary, Ms. Jenkins is a romance powerhouse.
