I enjoyed the story, but we got there way too quickly. I loved that once again, I learned something new about Black History, but this story seemed like an overview. It seemed more like a novella in the pacing. All in all it was a good read, and I am looking forward to the next one in the series.

I'm a huge fan of Ms. Jenkins, work. I have read all her books and has come to love her well thought out plots, beautifully built  characters, and the steady paced storyline. However, this one falls a little short for me. It felt rushed and I didn't really connect with any of the characters. The story line was "predictable" and there was no real conflict besides the couple denying their attraction. I hope the second book in this series is better, I do love her historical romances.

Wonderfully developed characters enter twined with a fabulous love story. Riveting page turner that will keep you reading until the end and looking forward to the next book in the series!

I have read all Ms. Jenkins books. And have enjoyed them all. I keep them and reread them over and over again. This is not one of those books. It was rushed and basically had no meat on it. When authors write books like this, the run the risk that readers will not read this newer 2nd novel. #ijs.....this is my humble OPINION!

Loved this new family (the Yates) started by the AA history lady, Beverly Jenkins. The California history was enlightening and the action between Logan and Mariah was humorous as well as "heated". Looking forward to the other stories in this series.

A Romantic, Fun, Passionate story! Destiny’s Embrace, the first book in Beverly Jenkins’ Destiny series, is a romantic story about learning to compromise, learning to trust, and learning to love. This is my first taste of Ms. Jenkins’ writing and I enjoyed it! It’s one of those easy to read stories – a comfortable tale without a lot of angst, but loaded with feeling and characters you can care about. I loved the way the story unfolded, told with enough attention to detail, making me see and feel the landscape, the atmosphere, the trials and triumphs of ranch living, and I felt as if I were there. The characters are compassionate people who, despite giving new meaning to the word stubborn, are understanding and able to – eventually – admit their mistakes. The bottom line: I thoroughly enjoyed Destiny’s Embrace and Ms. Jenkins’ easy going way of telling a story. It's sweet, witty, and sexy, and I now understand why she’s considered one of the leading ladies of writing in the African American Romance genre! My thanks to Avon Books for providing me with a copy of Destiny’s Embrace in exchange for an honest review.

I won’t give you a synopsis of the book because that is in the product description. I really enjoyed Destiny’s Embrace. Mariah was the perfect example of when a woman has had enough. She’ll either crumble or get tired of the—excuse my French—BULL and take control of her life. Overall, the title was great. As usual, I learned a lot while being entertained. Thanks for another great read.

This book was so well written that I read it in a day loved every minute of it but the cliff hanger at the end has me on the edge of my seat with all kinds of ? who? what? where? why ? cant wait for the next book to find out the answers.

I have read nearly every one of Ms Jenkins novels and have looked forward to the release of this one eagerly. I forced myself to put it down so it would last longer! I loved reading about Mariahs adventures and I will plan to grab up the sequel as soon as it comes out! I enjoyed the way Ms Jenkins developed all the characters from Logan all the way to his youngest brother and still made me want to read more about them especially Noah.
