The first novel in USA Today Bestselling Author Beverly Jenkins’s compelling new series follows a Northern woman south in the chaotic aftermath of the Civil War . . . Valinda Lacey’s mission in the steamy heart of New Orleans is to help the newly emancipated community survive and flourish. But soon she discovers that here, freedom can also mean danger. When thugs destroy the school she has set up and then target her, Valinda runs for her life—and straight into the arms of Captain Drake LeVeq. As an architect from an old New Orleans family, Drake has a deeply personal interest in rebuilding the city. Raised by strong women, he recognizes Valinda’s determination. And he can’t stop admiring—or wanting—her. But when Valinda’s father demands she return home to marry a man she doesn’t love, her daring rebellion draws Drake into an irresistible intrigue.

It is crazy that this was my first Beverly Jenkins. She is romance star for a reason. Set in New Orleans during reconstruction it is about a woman who heads south with the dream of teaching anyone who desires an education and the son of a prominent family who helps her navigate the dangers of the city she is making her home. The romance is sweet but I loved the historical details that really elevated this story. And that cover!! Out in May.
