Overview

Wild Sweet Love by Beverly Jenkins

Teresa July has led a hard life, but now she has a chance to put her train robbing past behind her. Armed with a new job as a cook to one of Philadelphia's elite families, Teresa is determined to start her life anew, and nothing––not even her boss's stuck–up (and far too handsome) son––is going to stand in her way.

Madison Nance is sick of his mother taking in women from the wrong side of the tracks, just to see them turn on her generosity. That's why it's up to him to keep a close eye on Teresa's every move. At least, that's the only logical explanation for why he can't get the young woman out of his mind.

But when a woman from Madison's past threatens Teresa's future, the two reluctant lovers must join forces is they're ever going to have a chance at happiness.

In 1895 incarcerated bank and train robber Teresa July receives a pardon for coming to the aid of a prison matron with the stipulations that she stay out of trouble and out of the west especially the Arizona Territory for a year. Philadelphia high society maven and charity representative Miss Molly Nance takes in the famous Black Seminole outlaw, who figures how hard can it be to stay out of trouble while living amidst affluence.--------------- However, Teresa readjusts her original contention that keeping out of trouble will prove easy when she meets Molly's son, Madison, a womanizing retired cardsharp turned banker. He decides Teresa would make a fine notch on his belt, but instead of falling into bed with the hunk, she rips his skin that is when she is not defeating him in some sort of contest. As they begin to fall in love over horseshoes, her previous lifestyle surfaces leaving both and his mother in peril.---------------- Using the sister of the hero of SOMETHING LIKE LOVE and a support role gambler from A CHANCE AT LOVE, Beverly Jenkins provides readers with a great historical romance that also includes a terrific look at black history. The lead couple each shows they can handle star billing as Teresa and Madison is a wonderful pairing who fuss, fight, compete, and love. No one shines a light on nineteenth century African-America than the incomparable Ms. Jenkins consistently does which is why this reviewer is also a fan.--------------- Harriet Klausner

Gotta love the Julys. Teresa is the youngest and only girl of the infamous July siblings and if you haven't heard of the Julys , you need to treat yourself to Ms. Jenkins' books, The Taming of Jessie Rose and Something Like Love. Teresa July is truly a one of a kind woman and an unforgettable heroine and a wonderful match for the sophiscated and cynical Madison Nance. Their story will be one you'll treat yourself to again and again and again. Enjoy!

A real good read from start to finish. I liked the fact that the lady outlaw kept it real. Ms. Jenkins stories are so well written. And I just love the July family. I hope she gives the other July members their own book. I will read this one again in the near future.
