Beverly Jenkins is a splendid author, and Topaz was a splendid story. It was amusing, charming, and smart. Kate was spunky, and Dix was swoonworthy, but that is par for the course with Jenkins' heroines and heroes.

Please follow me on my blog :) Review originally posted on Vellum Voyages.

I’m very excited about this review as this was my first Beverly Jenkins! I’ve been meaning to try her for ages and finally it has happened and so glad I read Topaz. About time I read about some coloured characters…it never even crossed my mind coloured heroes and heroines are not featured as prominently within the historical romance genre and I’m so proud Beverly Jenkins has rectified that! Not only is this a fun historical romance, but it is also a history lesson that I’m sure a lot of us are unaware of! Yes, we have all heard about the American Civil War, but what other hardships did the Black population in America face? Read Beverly Jenkins and you are sure to pick up on some fascinating historical titbits!

Dixon (Dix) Wildhorse, a Black Seminole Marshall finds himself offered the hand of Katherine Love by her father to settle his debts with Dix. Disgusted by Bart Love’s offer, yet intrigued by his description of Katherine, as Dix is in the market for an agreeable wife, Dix, agrees to meet her. As they set off to meet the biddable seamstress’s assistant, Bart realises Katherine is missing and her home has been ransacked. Panicking, Bart begs Dixon to help him find his daughter. Suspecting Bart is up to his usual tricks, Dix makes Bart tell him the whole story, where Bart fesses up that Kate really is a newspaper woman and she was planning to expose a Mr Rupert Samuels and his business dealings. Dix and Bart track Kate down to Rupert Samuel’s house and watch from afar as she’s forcefully taken into the dwelling by Rupert’s henchmen. Bart drops another bombshell – Rupert and Katherine are meant to be getting married on the morrow! Bart attempts to reassure Dix that the wedding was a ruse and she wasn’t planning to go through with it, as she was only pretending to be his fiance so that she could expose him! Furious with Bart and his schemes, Dix’s code of honour leaves him with no choice except to see this plan through and rescue Kate from Rupert’s hands.

Giving up hope of not being wedded to Rupert Samuel’s, Katherine Love resigns herself to an unwanted fate until a furious lawman snatches Kate from the altar, rescuing her from her worst nightmare. Kate is ecstatic about her rescue until Dix informs her that her father has sent him to rescue and wed her instead! Marriage isn’t something Kate has wanted as she had no plans to abandon her career to look after some man from the West. Finding herself in another pickle thanks to Bart Love’s deeds, Kate has no choice but to marry Dix to save her father from gaol. Despite her situation, Kate is determined to hold fast to her independence and her career and challenges Dix at every step. As Dix and Katherine get to know one another, their passion for each other takes over and grows and becomes something much more wonderful.

I really enjoyed Katherine and Dix’s story….Dix is so patient and respectful of Katherine and her needs…he’s a perfect hero! Katherine is strong-willed, independent and determined to make something of herself and I loved her tenacity. The history strewn within this book is just amazing. For example, the Black Seminoles! Wowww…had no idea there were black escaped slaves who intermarried with some Native American tribes and had their own race! This fact just totally blew my mind but it makes total sense in the course of nature for this to happen! Where could escaped slaves go?! Human instinct is to survive so if a kind tribe took them in as equals why the heck not! I’m just so stunned that these facts are not as widely known….I love being surprised with history because it really does show just how cosmopolitan the world really is! Intermarriage, biracial children etc. etc. have all been done in the past and history really is just repeating itself now! I wish the world would stop fighting over such “trivial” matters such as race, religion, ethnicity because at the end of the day we are all the same underneath with the same wants and needs.

Enough heavy talk, but I thoroughly enjoyed how Beverly Jenkins managed to make me think, surprised me with history AND delivered an awesome historical romance, with just her words! What a talented lady and I’m so happy to have finally read something of hers! Thank-you Ms Jenkins for such an enjoyable time!

I stumbled across Beverly Jenkins' books and, after reading reviews of several of them, decided to start with Topaz. I read 9 more of her books but Topaz was and is my favorite. The impressive historical research she shared was enlightening and at times heartbreaking (true in all of her books), but Topaz also gave some stunning Native American history as well. As far as romance goes, I loved the repartee between Kate and Dix, his whispers in her ear, and his asking her to count for him (you'll have to read it to understand). The characters were thoroughly enjoyable and well-developed, as have been the characters in all of Ms. Jenkins' books - strong, independent, feisty women and strong, compassionate, caring men.

I laughed, cried, and learned so much while reading this book. Beverly Jenkins works provides a lot of entertainment. Afterwards your interest is peeked to learn more about the history she has woven throughout the pages. An excellent writer, an excellent story!

I absolutely loved this story. It was beautiful. No spoilers here, but don't let this one get away. It is a must read. This was a page turner. You will not want to put it down. It is filled with love, history, humor and that beautiful bantering that the author is so good at delivering. I have just recently started reading Beverly' s books and can't seem to stop. So far I've read five practically back to back. Destiny' s Embrace, Destiny' s Surrender, Night Hawk, Taming of Jessi Rose, and now Topaz. They were all so good I can't even pick out a favorite. So far Mrs. Jenkins has not disappointed. I am a fan for life. Now I must end this review and move on to the next book. ( Always and Forever ). Can't help myself. Lol They are books that are a great escape from the real world and all it's stressors. Until you realize you've practically neglected everything else. Lol with that said, I'm still moving on to the next. HAPPY READING!
