Publisher's Summary

Blackboard best-selling author Beverly Jenkins delivers another lush historical novel featuring brothers that were first introduced in her award-winning novel Always and Forever. This is the story that audiences have been waiting for.

He was a wanted man. But no one wanted him more than she did.

Desperate to escape an arranged marriage, Olivia Sterling flees Chicago and heads west. She dreams of setting up her own seamstress shop in Henry Adams, a small all-Black town in Kansas. But her plans are derailed when her train is robbed by Neil July and his notorious band of outlaws.

Neil is enchanted by the headstrong and lovely Olivia. No woman has ever set his blood on fire before, and he suspects no other woman ever will. When they meet again, Olivia is the town's newly elected mayor and Neil is still the wanted outlaw. With bounty hunters on his trail, he would be wise not to linger, yet he can't seem to leave her. Will Neil be able to convince Olivia to ride off into the sunset with him? Or will he finally lay down his guns for love?

Is This Book Different?

No, it is not. Love it. Love it. I really enjoy all of Beverley Jenkins books. Learning about the history of the race is always an extra bonus. Kim Staunton brings the books to life. Truly enjoyed the book as always.

I loved it

I never thought that I would hear my father's name in one of the books that I listened to. It is interesting to know that his name goes back to this time period. My father's name is Delbert.

I love these Henry Adams stories!

Tamar July's ancestor Olivia Sterling July was Mayor of Henry Adams in the late 1800's. It seems during this time period women were severely stifled such was Olivia so she left her gentile eastern upbringing and escaped to Kansas a place where newly emancipated enslaved people had left the south and established one of many Black towns following the abolishing of slavery. Enroute to Henry Adams, Olivia was robbed by one of the men known as Neal July one of the terrible twins. Through many obstacles, trials and situations some scary and others funny Olivia and Neal lived very good lives especially since hanging Judge Parker had suspended his sentence and supplied Neal with a guaranteed job with the railroad for the duration of his suspended sentence. I love this story for its historical content as well as it being a very well written and interesting love story.
