Review: NightHawk by Beverly Jenkins
Outlaw. Preacher. Night Hawk. He’s had many names, but he can’t escape the past.
Since Ian Vance’s beloved wife was murdered years ago, the hardened bounty hunter know she’ll never feel love or tenderness again, so he’s made it his mission to ensure others get their justice. But when he’s charged with delivering a sharp-eyed beauty to the law, Ian can’t help but feel he may still have something left to lose.
Orphaned at twelve, Maggie Freeman has always found her way out of trouble. But now there’s a vigilante mob at her back who would like nothing more than to see her hang for a crime she didn’t commit. Maggie may have to accept help for the first time in her life . . .even if it’s from the one man standing between her and freedom.
As the past closes in, the sassy prisoner and toughened lawman may just find a passion between them that could bring blinding happiness . . . if they’ll let it.
The prose in this book caught me hard and fast and I tore through it in less than a day. It’s just so damned good. Featuring two PoC characters, this book has everything a dedicated historical romance reader is going to love.
Sticking to the tropes and history of the historical sub-genre, Ms. Jenkins weaves an entrancing tale full of mistrust, daring do and panties melting romance. It’s perfect. I highly encourage you to pick up anything Ms. Bev writes, you won’t be disappointed.
