Married For Money

Raimond Le Veq needed to marry to gain his inheritance and restore the fortunes of the House of Le Veq, the proud Black New Orleans family whose wealth had been ravaged by the War Between the States. Still wounded by the double-cross of the only woman he ever came close to loving, he gave the choice of bride to his mother. But he never be expected that she would pick Sable Fontaine--the beautiful former slave he could not allow himself to trust again.

Freed By Passion

Betrayed and sold to a cruel neighbor, Sable did whatever it took escape. With the spirits of her royal African ancestors guiding her, she made a bold bid for freedom, and won. But along the way she had to hurt the charming Union Major Le Veq, who had romanced her and championed her. Now fate has brought them back together in a marriage of convenience. Can she convince Raimond she was never a Rebel spy, and that this time, she'd choose him above all else?

Through the Storm was the first romance novel that ever read that had blacks as the main charcters. After reading this story I was hooked on anything written by Beverly Jenkins. I hope that Beverly continues to write books that give a postive insight to blacks during the 1800's.

After reading Indigo and learning about Raimond and his brothers, I was hoping to read more about them. I enjoyed reading about the budding romance and attraction between Sable and Raimond. I tell you Ms. Jenkins' really knows how to make a story come to life. She makes you feel like you're right there in the heat of all the action and the drama. She entertains as well as educates. I can't say I've ever enjoyed a history lesson so much as when I'm reading one of her historical fictions. Also while reading this particular story my heart ached for the characters. What they had to endure in order to remain free. Children stolen from their parents and forced to work. Homes and schools burned to the ground. Always living in fear. But in the end love prevails and families remain strong through it all. Once again, the worst thing about Beverly Jenkins' books is that you never want them to end. Keep 'em coming, Ms. Jenkins!

It was a very good book. I like how the book related to the civil war. It's a very beautiful love story.

Beverly Jenkins has to be one of the greatest historical fiction writers I've ever read. She knows how to make a story good and educate the reader in such a blend of storytelling that it's amazing. I know that when I buy a Beverly Jenkins novel, I'm getting a great book. I don't even read the back of it because I already know I won't be able to put it down. Any book by Beverly Jenkins is an instant hit and I have yet to find one that isn't.

I first read this book in late 1998. After finishing it, I was hooked on this author, Beverly Jenkins. I searched out and found the predecessor to Through The Storm, which was Indigo. I had to read about Raimond's friend Galen and his wife Hester. This story is such an intreging one that after I loaned it to my grandmother (who never returned it, by the way), I decided to purchase another copy. I just wanted to keep it in my library so that I could read it again in the future. Beverly Jenkins' books are hard to find once they go out of print. Infact, Indigo, the original print (which I have in hard back) is definately out of print, but was just re-released. If you buy this one, you'll get a lesson in American History, old fashioned romance, and the age old act of arranged marriages. Enjoy, as I did.
