“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.

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.

WHAT I LIKEMale main character knows how to guide a conversation, is quick witted, and a debonair personality. He is looking for the person that performed the dirty deed. He is a persistent both in his search and in his romance. Female main character is strong, intelligent and can stand up thru adversity. She lives with the father from hell. Historical role of Black people during the American Revolution. Some authors do not know how to interweave history into a fictional romance book. This author knew what she was doing. Written with the right balance of description of events and the right balance of characters dialogue. Story will hold your attention and is not boring. Passion is very tasteful and not overbearing.I would be willing to read this book a second time at a later date.WHAT I DID NOT LIKEThe "finding of peace" which is why I could not give 5 startsMOST OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE"his manhood hardened", breasts.....that's it.
