From the very first word on the page I was hooked and could not put the book down.
I finished the book in one sitting from 1030 pm until 0230 that morning.
Educational, Inspiring, Historical, and did I mention Sizzling Hot!
You got to read this book!
Billie is a whore and a total bad-a$$, and she's apologizing for neither. Love that she's an emotionally strong person, not just a sexy heroine. She gets herself into trouble by doing two things: falling in love with a client, and deciding to keep the child she's pregnant with, instead of aborting, though there's no guarantee it belongs to her favorite client.
There were some things about this book I didn't love: use of literary cliches throughout, but mostly, that Drew was a weak hero. *spoiler alert* He was marrying Rosa because Mama wanted him to, and when that blew up, he married Billie against his own inclinations, he accepted being virtually disbarred because of his color, and then in the end... ugh! You know a serious bad guy is after your wife and child, dontcha think you might want to keep a guard on them? Also, I thought it unrealistic that the baddie would leave Mariah and her daughter totally unmolested when he'd otherwise stopped at nothing to destroy those who previously got in his way, down to Emmaline's maid?
I did like the way the storyline didn't follow "normal" romance storylines, with the hero falling in love after the marriage, and the way Billie did not let Drew off the hook with his parenting responsibilities. Loved Alanza and her fierce defense of her family, and the B-romance with her and Max.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Great job Ms. Bev, I look forward to the next story.
Some of her language seemed too modern for the time period; for example, adolescence is a 20th century concept; in the 19th century, children basically went from being children to adults, there was no in between stage. The fact that most of the townspeople around the ranch accepted Billie given her background as a prostitute also didn't seem realistic, particularly for that time period. Not sure I'm going to read the other books in this series because they are more expensive but this one was inexpensive and entertaining.
