Reviewers Say It All...
Fresh Fiction - Kay Quintin
“Treachery and the excitement of a duel give readers much to keep their interest going. How does Travis handle it when he learns Brooke was a courtesan? Will they discover who and why someone is trying to kill them? I enjoyed reading about their adventures and the different characters who mold their futures. I high recommend this novel. Brenda Jernigan is a very talented author.”
Huntress Book Reviews - Detra Fitch
“This story seduced me from the start! Author Brenda Jernigan Scott has created an exceptional tale set during a time in history when such situations could become most volatile. I found this story to be very extraordinary; the heroines of most historical romances are of young, naïve, ladies or widows. This author has dared to go against the grain and has earned my high regards. BARVA! I can hardly wait for the nieces’ stories to be gold.”
The man riding toward her made an awesome picture as he sat tall in the saddle. He reined in his horse a few feet away from them, but said nothing, allowing Brooke another moment to look at him. He was dressed in riding clothes, but he wore no jacket as most gentlemen did, just a white billowing shirt and black riding breeches. His blue eyes flashed, then narrowed as he leaned forward in the saddle and looked down as if they were insects to be trod upon.About Brenda Jernigan
The sun played on his sun-streaked hair, wind-tossed and rather long, Brooke noticed as he examined them. In spite of his superior attitude, his bronzed skin gave him a rakish air that Brooke found quite appealing.
She really shouldn’t be ogling him, but she couldn’t help herself. He was truly breathtaking.
Back in England, the gentlemen she had known had always been pasty and white dandies, most of whom had been old enough to be her father.
But not this one.
He was handsome, recklessly so, and he simply took her breath away. She wondered who he was.
The overseer, perhaps? Entertainment?
She could only hope.
“Jeffries,” the man muttered curtly, finally acknowledging them. He dismounted and tossed the reins to a young stable boy who had come trotting up while Brooke had been looking at the man. “I had word that you were coming, but I wasn’t expecting your wife.”
Brooke noted that the stranger had a deep, commanding voice, but she almost laughed out loud at the notion that he thought she was Mr. Jeffries’s wife.
“Travis,” Jeffries said as he extended his hand. “It has been a long time since I last saw you. You look well.”
“As do you,” Travis commented, then glanced at Brooke. “Will you introduce me to your lovely companion?”
“Certainly. But she isn’t my wife.” Mr. Jeffries motioned toward Brooke. “May I introduce you to Brooke Hammond.”
Travis lifted her hand to his lips then kissed the back ever so lightly, just enough to make chills sweep over and through Brooke’s body.
Brenda Jernigan is a bestselling author. Her books have been nominated for many awards - Book Seller’s Best Award, The Maggie Award, and The Holt Medallion Award. Publisher’s Weekly said, “Brenda Jernigan writes Romance, Adventure and Magic.”
She grew up living the life of a tomboy – climbing trees, playing ball, and excluding starry-eyed romance from her daily repertoire. Brenda discovered the love of books while taking her son to Story Hour at the local library -- she was hooked. She continued to write six more novels in rapid succession. She figured having the same birthday as Ernest Hemingway couldn’t hurt.
